FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pleasant fruity hop aroma, fleshy, peachy. Pale orange, small head. Simple laste, just pale ale malts and cookie cutter modern IPA aromatic hops. Thin and a bit dull. Had this a hundred times, it fails to excite any more.

MichaelAwesome (3650) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Thick and fruity IPA with some citrus and big hops upfront. Quaffy, easy to go and highly drinkable. Bit unbalanced end but a classy one in the end.

Taste of fresh hops, spruce, pine, thyme, coriander, oranges, peaches and light barley. Wonderful quaffable and easy to drink. Big beer.

wimpyjoe (3580) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. It’s extremely hoppy in character with citrus tropical fruit flavours abundant. They leave quite a sour aftertaste that lingers and is not overly pleasant.

wyzzywyz22 (1945) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle, Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Hazy amber pour with a medium off white head. Sweet nose of sticky toffee pud, tropical fruits and piney hop. Flavour offered more sweetness and citrus fruits in tandem with some fairly robust hop bitterness. Smooth, drinkable and really a rather pleasant IPA dear boy.
