berkshirejohn (5093) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A murky amber pour with a billowing white head; quite a gentle aroma with some grass from the Saaz hops coming through the citrus from the Citra; the Citra hops dominate the taste though, with a rich sweet grapefruit taste, and a creamy body, perhaps from the barley; the finish is smooth with a lasting grapefruit bitterness, and a pleasant rounded warmth. A subtle and very drinkable IPA.

Murky gold beer with frothy white head. Citrus aromas, and massive pine flavours with citrus in the background. Really good beer, and makes a nice change from hop bomb IPAs. Great stuff.

A bottle via beer52. Always like to see a beer with live yeast. No malt/hop balance just an overpowering hop taste.

niquillis (1690) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours amber with off white head. Well hopped but a little too boozy so a little hard work. Decent IPA.

wheresthepath (1770) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottle from Appleyards Deli, Shrewsbury. Murky golden-amber with a thin white head. Good resinous mouthfeel. Pine up front then lots of citrus- sour lemon and grapefruit- followed by some mango and then a dirty, earthy bitterness to finish. Didnít do it for me at all- Iím quite surprised by the high scores here.

Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Gravity dispense at Craft 100, CBC Clapham, 02/04/15. Hazed golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is orange peel, earthy hop notes, tangerine, bread dough, straw. Taste comprises juicy hops, mango, bitter orange, straw, sweet notes, light mango shreds. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok IPA.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Cask at The Cellar, Chester. Slightly hazy golden. Long-lasting white head. Aroma is a gorgeous tropical fruit cocktail. Slightly grassy too. Taste is equally juicy, fairly dry and only slightly bitter. Itís incredibly drinkable. This is exactly how I like my IPAs and itís clearly in great form here.
