gripweed57 (729) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange with a fluffy beige head. Fruity malt aroma with a hint of resiny pine hops. Smooth toasted malt flavor is balanced by spicy peppery hops. Some tropical fruit in mid taste. Dry bitter finish. A decent IPA, but just average.

Douberd (2341) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle 355 ml from Nisse666, thanks Thomas! New country tick! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 6.2% Deep orange colour on the body, with a tall and thick off-white head. Very good retention, light lacing on the glass. The body is clear, with good activity in it. Aroma of caramel, malts, grapefruit, floral notes. Taste is nice, fruity, some light grapefruit and orange, some butter, a bit of alcohol, caramel. Mildly bitter. Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry palate. Overall more than okay IPA.

Leighton 10K tasting at Bruceís pad. Thanks to Rocket for this rarity. Light haze on this gold beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Mild dry malty sweetness. Marmalade and floral things, both mildly bitter. Dry finish.Not too bad. Started rough but grew a little.

Bottle at Black (IPA) Friday tasting, thanks to Nisse666 for this extra - cheers Thomas, 09/05/14. Very lightly hazed golden orange with a moderate off white swirl atop the glass. Nose is caramel, floral notes, bitter orange, spice, a little buttery. Taste comprises light caramel, straw, floral hop notes, perfumed, orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with light hop bitterness. So so affair, not a lot going on here, still definately the best beer Iíve rated from the Virgin Islands though (well Shipyard!).

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Colin for this obscurity. Pours clear, light gold with a fine, creamy white head. Pretty mediocre stuff, lots of herbal hops, old pine, dry pale bread, some tangerine. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. More dusty pine on the finish, light sweetness, herbs, some citrus pith. Meh, shabby.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle @ Chez Bruce. Amber small head. Massive creamed corn nose. Cotton candy. Sort of artificial and nasty. Taste is very papery. Almost rancid bitterness. Light melon if Iím being charitable. Light body, quite fizzy. Cheers to Shipyard for the garbage juice.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin, it pours clear amber with a medium yellow head. The nose is sweetish, orange peel, marmalade and candy. The taste is bitter, toasty, orange peel, dirt, grapefruit, lemonade, wood, dirt and light alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Mediocre at best,

50belair (2356) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle at Sibís. Clear yellow pour with an off white head. Mild floral hop aromas. A bit bland with muted citrus and florally hop notes. Decent balance with mild caramel malt low lights. Not bad for the islands.

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
12oz bottle 1/29/14 (St. Thomas)-Pours a clear copper with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops coming in on the back end. This medium bodied brew is not bad.
