foduck (328) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2011
A dark yellow ale with big fluffy white head, the aroma hit me as soon as I opened the bottle. Powerful fruits aroma with the citrus notes from the hops. Flavor is awesome pale malts and finishes bitter and dry. A very nice example of how an IPA can be complex and fruity without going nuts with overhopping or going high-gravity. An IPA for those who prefer a more "authentic" feel. Tastes like it was brewed with great care not to stray into the trendy IPA territory.

solidfunk (3007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
A little more bitter and hoppy than the other ESBs by Ridgeway but I could have easily been fooled into thinking this is an EPA or ESB. Light citrus, pours dark but clear amber. Light bitter finish with some cloying. Cask at Churchkey.

jinroh (266) - ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2014
Looks nicely golden, small head. Simple malt aroma. Taste has some strong bread at first, filling the entire mouth with nice malt flavours. Some fragrant hops follow and the sensation ends in a short and soft malt. This one is a good example of a British IPA, lenient hops, bread malt base, some fruits. This drink is session able, suitable for easy drinking. Not as hoppy as I like the best - but definitely not bad either.

bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Juicy hop aroma of orange and peach on soft light malt. Flavor is juicy sweet with light spice. Feel is very nice silken with low carbonation. Nice change of pace from the typical USA IPA.

Zarkam (340) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
500ml bottle from alko Kannelmäki, hazy light amber colour with large creamy head. Aroma of Fruit, dough and resin with notes of citrus and cheese, bitterish but fairly balanced tastebitter long aftertaste, full body. Less hops than a lot of modern IPA’s, but very well balanced and the yeast adds an interesting character.
