Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 thanks to JF. Lightly hazed golden amber with moderate off white edgeing and spotting. Nose is caramel malt, light spice, bitter citric peel, earthy hop. Taste comprises light pine, orange pith, grapefruit, touch of mango, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness. Drinkable stuff but lower end of the style spectrum for me.

A double ipa to give your palate a rest. No overdone bitterness. Foamy head lasts several minutes. Light amber color. Light hop aroma with a hint of malt. 9% abv is hidden in the flavors. Sweet, slightly floral romantics. Nice malt back bone balances the more subtle bitterness. A very pleasant beer to drink. Not over the top , but made to sit back and sip in a chair and relax. Two of these and you will be in a very relaxed state. I really enjoyed this interpretation of a double ipa.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and smooth with mild fine carbonation. Sweetish creamy malts, little caramel. Sweetish marmalade and dried fruit hops. Pine. Nice touch of lime marmalade as well! Floral tones. Modest tropical fruits and even a touch of apricot. Light finish. Nice.

harrisoni (15317) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting cream head. Hop resiny aroma. Some toffee biscuit sweetness in the mouth. Very smooth in the mouth. Quite hoppy but not over the top. No real burn on the finish. The ABV is hidden well. If I made a DIPA this is how I would want it to turn out, balanced and hoppy but not super hoppy, good biscuit and sweetness in the mouth and good bitterness on the finish. Good

That1Guy (2061) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
12 oz can (excellent) picked up in a variety sixer. Pours hazy orange with a white head and good lacing. Started off okay, but now that it’s warmed up a bit the flaws begin to show. What started off as a nice, fruity bouquet of mango and tropical fruits has now given way to unmistakeable squashy pumpkin. Yeast death. Gives off a harsh bitter finish in the end. Not over the top and not undrinkable, but a bit flawed for sure. Still a good looking beer and a good looking package.

Bottle with jackl. Clear golden amber color, white edge head. Aroma of fruity bitter citrus. Taste is herbal lemon lime. OK.

HughConway (830) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2014
12oz can. Pours amber orange, white head. Aroma’s hop-ish, taste is sweet malt. Decently executed, not special, not one of the pieces of malt crap.
