visionthing (3615) - 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 (1537) - 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 (775) - 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.

Krigla (123) - SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2015
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.

KoNrRiI (767) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, thin, white head. Strong aroma of hops, citruses, and mango. Taste is bitter as expected but not greatly so; it actually offers a slight sweetness as well and is generally pleasant. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also well-balanced and not astringent. Overall a pleasant beer, certainly breaks the stereotype that an IPA has to suck all the happiness out as it retreats but nothing praiseworthy either.

yngwie (15383) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, at Cardinal. An almost clear, golden beer topped by a dense, white head leaving some lacings. Cheesy aroma with pine cones, grass, resins and caramel maltyness. It’s lightly bitter on the palate, dry and medium to full-bodied, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Sort of cheesy flavor too, with caramel malts in the back, and piney, resiny and grassy hops up front. Lasting finish. A decent beer, but sort of boring. Guess it might suffer from age. 141101

500ml bottle. pours a clear gold/yellow with thin white head. aroma is full of citrussy hops, resin and pine. nice bitter hoppy taste with a dry resiny finish.
