tiong (3077) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 15.12.12 BBE 15.4.13 - Pours dark orange with a medium foamy and bubbly head. Aroma of fresh exotic fruits, hints of berries, caramel, toffee and grassy hops. Taste is sweetish, malty and slightly fruity with hints of exotic fruits, caramel and grass. Finish is hoppy, grassy and malty with some caramely sweetness and fruitness. Okay, quite malty IPA, not quite as fruity as you would expect from the sweet aroma.

jamestulloch (1060) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Aroma: Dry, dusty hops with a stunning aroma of orange, lime and light caramel.

Appearance: Murky amber body with a thick off-white head. Excellent lacing.

Taste: Lovely clean flavours of citrus, pine, yeast and caramel. It tastes Kernel-esque, so I wasnít surprised to learn that they brewed using Kernelís kit. The bottle Iím drinking from says 6.9%. Thereís barely a hint of the alcohol at all; this is very easy drinking. Lingering bitterness.

Palate: Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Overall: The first beer Iíve had from this brewery - and it definitely wonít be the last. An excellent yeasty, hoppy IPA with a cool label, too. If I have one criticism (and itís not easy to find one) I think this beer would be perfect if it had slightly more malt character.

DanielBrown (3629) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at the Victoria, Birmingham. Poured a beautiful hazy golden with a sticking white roof. Wow - boom. Maybe íboomí is going a bit far, but this was certainly a delicious beer as far as moi is concerned (which I am). Proper lengthy hops which coat the tongue and throat. Zinging flavours, super balance. The taste grows and grows.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail
Hazy dark amber with fluffy white head. Sappy resinous nose with underlying mango. Quite soft carbonation and mouthfeel with a big lupulin hit. Some lemon cheesecake and tangerine pith. It finishes too briefly but its headed in the right direction. Hate to say it but maybe this one would benefit some cara!
