DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells drily hoppy, with a metallic rim. Bright yellow, with a ginormous foam heed. Smooth, thick in the gob, with a rapid wash of sunshiney, orange and pineapple hops. Finishes really dry, but that adds a peppery, cutting refreshment. Good balance, good lasting flavour. Not sure the bottle conditioning adds much to this, but then again what do I know?

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Beer & Spirits, Knaresborough, N.Yorks. Cloudy yellow gold with big white head. This was a lively fella on the pour. There is a citrusy nose straight from the off leadining to a sharp, fresh lemony flavour, with hints of tangerine. Lasting and dry on the palate over a slightly sweet malty body. Good stuff.

Theis (12759) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle at Southwark Rose Hotel - shared with Mette. Clear golden/amber - white head. Nice hoppy, peachy, grape fruits, citrus, light flowery, light malty sweetness, nice dry bitter finish. Lovely.

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2011
From bottle. Pours with a massive thick white head. Slightly cloudy golden colour. Strong lemony aroma with hints of pine and maybe a bit of peach too. Bit washing up liquid like but in a good way. Medium bodied with a lightly bitter finish. Extremely drinkable. Very nice British IPA, one of the best I’ve had.

rosenbergh (6096) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2011
Cask at the White Horse of Parson’s Green, London, England.
Cloudy pale golden colour with small frothy white head. Sweetish fruity hops in aroma. Malt and sweetish fruity bitter hops in flavour. Quite balanced. Some bitterness in aftertaste.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 9, 2011
Medium Gold beer with tight whiyte head and light carbonation. Asda Extra Special Lemon Cheesecake Yoghurt on the nose with perhaps some mandarins. This carries on into the body with some bitterness and a sweet mandarin finish. Quite thin-bodied in comparison to some IPAs but a unique flavour.

KnutAlbert (5764) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2010
Peaches, malt, yet a strong hoppy palate - competing with the Manchester bitter both for bitterness and complexity. Slightly stronger than what some Brits would call a session ale - but this is very quaffable. (Bottle from myBreweryTap.com)

OleR (4609) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2010
0.5L bottle (5% abv) bought@Utobeer, London. Big, mostely lasting blond head. Body is hazy bright yellow with a golden glow. Smell of clean pale malts and fresh flowery and lemony hops. Medium malt body with a light sweetness. Still clean in the mouth. A fair amount of bittering hops. Citrus accented flavoring as well. Crisp and dry fruity-bitter ending. Uncomplicated and straightforward, and most of all, very well crafted. Super drinkability, too.

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A fairly traditional British take on an American IPA. Clear, yellowish pour with a soft, white head. Crisp hop nose with grass and straw. Light, crackery malts provide a mild sweetness, then a very natural-tasting bitterness of earth, hay and grass comes in. Light in body with fine to average carbonation. Clean, lightly dry grassy hop finish.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2010
From cask at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity hoppy, light mango and peachy. Peachy and grapefruity hops flavoured. Distinct bitter and dry, light malt base. Ends bone dry and bitter with a persisting fruity touch.
