thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Dark orange (not amber) colour with decent head. Smell has hops. Taste has some malts but mainly hops with a bittering end. I found this more like a English pale ale with European bittering hops. Nice in its own way.

rosenbergh (10658) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
500 ml bottle. BB 25/03/2016. (K-Supermarket) Helsinki, Finland.
Clear golden color with a small white head. Dry hops, mild bitterness, dryness, cookies, malt and some sawdust in the aroma. The flavor is dry resiny and piney hops, moderate bitterness, dryness, cookies and malt. Rather English style hop profile than American. Drinkable.

jinroh (1241) - ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours light and pale straw., bit of white foam. Aroma is greasy, refreshing, bit of malts shining through from beneath. Tastes also quite light and easygoing, malt body supporting its hop flavours. Simple and sessionable if anything. Not bad.

maekchu (3509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle from local Yamaya. Rough piney hop nose, very earthy, grass, some tropical fruit. Lightly hazy copper color, fluffy white head, and constant streams of fast-rising carbonation. Moderate caramel, topped with a pine/citrus mix, good tropical fruit in mid palate, and trickles of bitterness in finish. Medium body. Very nice nose. Not exactly "American," but it has generous malty flavors.

CacheManyHose (601) - HONG KONG - MAY 22, 2015
Ordered from Braedon. Crisp but cloudy amber-tan, thin white head with big bubbles. Smells of quite a lot of apple juice; malt and some herbal resin hop too. Tastes of malt and resin, but flavour quickly dissipates into watery nothing. Body is medium, some gentle fizz, bitter watery finish. Not bad, more malty than expected, but taste is quite empty.

HKdIPA (690) - HONG KONG - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle from Braedon at home. Hazy amber orange pour. Aroma is predominantly malt, some spice, some slight resin hops. Taste is surprisingly malty but also with crisp clean hoppy bitterness. Hope are a bit floral but mostly just crisp. Not bad for an APA but not much going on.

graham_murphy (616) - - MAR 28, 2015
Lovely balance pale ale. Not sure Id call it too American as the bitterness of the hops was not over pronounced. Somewhere between English and American. Sweet orange notes with some floral balanced against a biscuity malt. Close to perfect.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Amber, no head; aroma of honey, treacle; taste is initially honey, bready malt, then a zesty, peppery bitterness takes over; odd, but nice enough.
