ThirstyBird (1985) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
From tap, pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. The smell is green, wet hops, vegetation. The taste is wet hops, dank, some citrus, pine ending dry. The body is light with average carbonation. Quite nice...

OOKPIKABLE (158) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Pours golden amber. Aroma of greenness, not sure how else to describe: it’s verdant: some hops, but not really typical IPA: grassy greenness going on. Tastes of passion fruit, green grass and pine. Piney hoppy lingering aftertaste. Not your typical IPA. Nice.

Sammy (9256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Very decent IPA, citra lead. Good quaffable citra and balanced, though I’ve done this type of American IPA before. Slight palate erasing

visionthing (3291) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2015
50cl bottle at Pudel, Tallinn. Pours clear deep golden to amber with a white head. Fairly happy and fruity aroma dominated by citrus with notes of tropical fruits, cat pee, pale malt, grass and caramel. Medium sweet with pleasant hoppy flavours and a nice bitterness. Medium+ body with quite average carbonation. Bitter aftertaste with citrusy notes. Decent IPA.

Maakun (1176) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle from olliejobbins. Clear straw with small white head. Pine resin, pineapple, lemon rind, fruit candy, very bitter herbs. Light sweet going into strong bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very strong hops with very light malt base. Nice enough.

codex (3) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015 does not count
Bottle at home from BeerRitz, have not found on cask yet. Pours golden, nice white head, with slight haze. Taste is outstanding, powerfully hopped, yet nicely balanced. This is one of my favorite IPA’s

ippopotamo36 (609) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 19, 2015
At Buskers pub in Rome-Italy, draught (only 4,5 euros). I have been desperately looking for this IPA for a couple of years, Rome warmly welcomes me back :-). Pours semi-filtered golden color with a never ending white tick head. Nose: fresh English green grass harvest (proper English hops), pine needles, hay. Mouth: extremely thirst quenching beer, round freshness, balanced but important bitterness. Sweet/sour apricot aftertaste. A well-made English IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 50cl traded with Olliejobbins thanks. A cloudy yellow beer with white head. Nose is on agrums, grapefruit, lemon, cat piss. Aroma is on resin, lemon, grassy bitterness, green vegetables, finish on bitter oranges.

Bottle, 0,5l. Clear, golden color with small, white head. Average carbonation. Strong aroma of hops, citruses and pines. Fruity and hoppy flavor with strong bitter aftertaste. Overall really good and refreshing beer.
