dogbomb (1117) - ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white top. Nose is super pungent. Lots of fruits - mango, pineapple, peach, nectarine, grapefruit. More fruit intenseness in the mouth, with some warming sweet malts. This is incredibly tasty stuff in the American/Double IPA vein. Real quality.

JonMoore (2033) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle - copper coloured with moderate sized white head. Citrus and peach aroma, some sweet malts. Similar in the taste, nicely hoppy, nice oily mouthfeel, long hoppy bitter finish. Well put together, nice.

Hanoi (669) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Nose is citrus, slight pine. Taste is lime, mandarin leading to a little cereal and a resin finish. Mouthfeel is suitable. Itís a decent American IPA, to be filed with the other 756,432 which are available.

jamestulloch (2462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Very light carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of what Iím pretty certain is the Citra hop - lemon, grapefruit, peach and soap. Flavour is similar to the aroma - this is a real hop bomb. Apricot and lemon with a light caramel backbone. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. This is the first Kirkstall Brewery beer Iíve tasted, and on this evidence it wonít be the last. It reminds me of Highlandís Island Hopping or a turbo-charged version of Fyne Alesí Jarl - itís packed full of fruity hop flavours. If Iím being picky, though, itís a bit light on the mouthfeel. A less filtered version of this would be absolutely immense.

minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
500ml bottle from either Beermoth or Trafalgar Wines. Try as I might I just canít remember. Bucketloads of piney, mandarin hops which, after a rather bland, hugely disappointing local bitter, just about turned things around this evening. Kirkstall Brewery I have my eye on you.

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Bit sweet for IPA, fruity.
