Hazy mid-amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is crisp. Minerals. Fresh orange and orange peel hops. Touch of pink grapefruit and a whisper of passion fruit. Finishes smooth with mild bitterness. Super fresh and super drinkable. Lovely!

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Now I love Simcoe and I can smell this beer already as it sits in the glass. Good intense Simcoe aroma. Quite sticky in the mouth quite full as Simcoe tends to be and the malts are just right to carry that gorgeous pink grapefruit resiny cat pee woody flavour. OK bitterness on finish. Not harsh. Just a lovely vehicle to deliver Simcoe into my body. Stupidly moreish. The glass lasted less than the 3 minutes 40 seconds it took me to heat up my dinner in the microwave. Lovely.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours lightly hazed gold with a creamy, off-white head. Nose holds pine needles, semi-ripe orange, some grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, some sticky citrus fruits, a bit of randy bitterness, some pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sticky and resinous pine in the ending, pithy citrus, orange, tangerine and grapefruit, moderately sweet pale malts, faint grass. A very solid, very drinkable IPA.

Theydon_Bois (9725) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle at JF’s, from Utobeer, 09/06/13. Lightly hazed golden with a big off white head. Nose is fresh hops, light pine, mineral notes, orange sherbet, grapefruit. Taste comprises juicy hops, bitter grapefruit, orange pith, light mineral notes, tropical goodness sealed in a bottle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Solid IPA - the best yet for me from Partizans pale spectrum.

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Partizan. It pours lightly hazy amber with a medium beige head. The nose is big on the pine, orange, over-ripe mango, diet Irn Bru and candle wax. The taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, orange sponge cake, pine, resinous, oily hop and some more diet Irn Bru with a rather bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A touch sickly on the nose, but pretty tasty.

lusikka (6439) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a copper colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, wet earth and some floral notes. Flavour of strong grapefruity hops, grass, resin, blackcurrant juice, mango and mildly sweet caramel maltiness. Medium bodied, heavy but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bitterness builds up towards the end and creates a lovely lingering bitter and sweet finish. Hoppy fumes as well. Very enjoyable.

olio (6401) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of resiny hops, sweet caramelly fruits and pale malts. Flavor of caramel, sweet fruits, resin, hops and grass. Slick and somewhat oily palate, bitter finish. Decent but a little past its prime.

McTapps (4464) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
Beer from trade with Beersiveknown - many thanks to Steve! The beer pours out in a hazy dirty light amber colour with steady head and medium to crisp body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of aromatic hops, spruce, citrus, coriander and herbs. Light soapy finish. Very nice and delicious, enjoyed it a lot.

Quite a nice one which defines the citrus in hops in a new way. The strange thing is that you will not taste the big 6 abv in. It ends a bit watery and thin but offers a very lively hoppy and citrus aroma.
