On kyllä hyvistä hyvin IPA. Jukan luona shakkia ja Colinin rallia. Paras IPA mitä olen juonut.

Rated ma 04.01.2016.

tap@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Citrussy nose, some hayish, green tart berries on nose, farmy/saisonny feel. Med bodied, crisp, bitter, slight tart even. Golden malty, dry honey, citrus, some tropical yellows. Feels rather belgy ipa. Apparantly not intended as such, guessing the keg hasnt had an easy trip. The finish is pretty harsh actually.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle from Bottlecraft, Hanley. Pours golden with white head. I expected this to be overly bitter but it’s really well balanced. Well hopped easy drinking strong pale ale. Refreshing.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso pre Xmas tasting, 06/12/15. Golden orange with a decent egg shell white covering. Nose is faint plastic, apricot, orange pith, toasted malt, straw. Taste comprises tangerine, sweet licks, orange pith, light bread dough, trace of spice, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Ok but a little pedestrian for the style.

Scopey (11954) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-Christmas Tasting. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is fresh, floral, green, grassy, herbal, lemon verbena and lime. The taste is crisp, bitter, spicy, grassy, floral, herbal, dirt, green hops, green tea and mild acidity with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty novel and enjoyable.

Leighton (18030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle shared at the chriso and Ruth pre-Christmas / post-Pigs Ear holiday tasting of 2015 - London. Cheers! Pours lightly hazy gold with a frothy whitehead. The aroma holds citrus tangerine, light plastic and pale bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with light flinty minerals, spicy pine needles, peach. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Further minerals in the finish, mild pine, citrus. Not bad.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry and with good fine carbonation. Light malts, touch of creamy sweetness. Nice light citrus peel brings some bitterness. Smooth pine ensues and then some hop spice. Light grapefruit and tropicals. Light semi dry finish. Everything in good balance. A most pleasant IPA.
