maneliquor (3285) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 Tap at CBC Clerkenwell. Pours hazy orange with a small white head leaving a touch of lacing. Nose is big big passionfruit. Some moderate piney hops and light dank come through with the main winner being the heavy tropical fruits. Taste is big passionfruit and mango, sweet tropical forward stuff. Light honey and lime zest make up the undertones while the zest grows on the finish. Mild warmth right at the back end. Works well. Prickly carbonation which helps it flow. Good stuff but a touch too sweet and unbalanced

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
On tap at Colin’s Wedding Party - somewhere outside London. This is a damn fine beer marked by its exceptional balance. It’s loaded up with orange, lemon and urine. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Resinous on the finish, moderately sweet with more bright citrus fruits, pee. You really can’t detect that this beer is as strong as it is. Great stuff. Super drinkable.

Beersiveknown (3265) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle at home from the vineyard, Belfast
Very hazy dark chestnut brown with fluffy offwhite head. Rich peaches and raspberries on the nose. Light carbonation and full bodied, fairly sweet at first then long citrus pith and red berries plus something else I can’t quite put my finger on. Really well balanced, belies its strength, superb.q

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Draught at Hamnmästaren, Malmö
Cloudy amber color with small head. The aroma is intensively fruity, peach apricot and mango. Strong body, round mouthfeel; good flavor of toffee and malt, quite sweet; strong bitterness with evident fruity hop character and also enough hop resins. Long final, with mildly abrasive resins.
Nothing new under the sun, but it’s a fruity and still quite fresh brew, not too difficult to drink neither, for what it is.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
A Mes rate. Not sure on how a Siren and Grass Roots collaboration works out... Ryan? Anyway, this is a bloody good beer. Excellent clean gold with a very impressive, lasting white head. Nose is "drink me now" IPA with just a lick of honey. In the mouth the honey comes through a lot more but only in flavour, there’s no stickiness at all. High level of bitterness, lovely and dry and there’s something distinctly Cigar City about it. Can’t put my finger on it but hell... I could imagine this with some cedar in it. That would be awesome. Anyway, back to what I have in front of me... An excellent, easy drinking IPA, possibly a touch on the sweet side, but not enough to spoil it. Lively bitter finish, drying as it goes along. Lingering honey / hop aftertaste that’s really enjoyable. I’m struggling to write this before I down it. Very good beer and most importantly, something I’d happily drink more than one of.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2013
Tap@Ferm, Cph - golden/amber coloured pour, with a medium white head. Fruity hoppy citrus taste and aroma, orange and lemon, pine, grassy, caramel malts, nice floral tones, good mouthfeel, great bitter finish. Lovely stuff!

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry, drank 24/10/13 packing for Cali. Clear to foggy bronze with a fine off white collar speckling with lace. Big brazen Jelly Tot and Tropical Starburst aroma with blackcurrant, sweat, guava..almost garlic. That’s pushing a 9. Huge and peppery with aromatic pine, mushy tropical fruits, chalky flowers, pot pourri, gentle warm. Corn and honey? Not a trace. Burps of sorrel and root beer; dragonfuit, galangal. Top draw IPA. And massively drinkable- pity it was the wife’s and I only got the dregs.

IluvatarMilan (275) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Tap at brewdog camden - beautiful vibrant dark red to brown body. Heavy wood chips, dark red fruit, warming alcohol, raisins in the nose. Taste is very complex but still gentle. Nice hops to balance the barrel aging/alcohol. Rather like a hoppy barley wine than an iipa
