minutemat (1975) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy amber with caramel aroma. Taste brings earthy liquorice & treacle notes with dark fruits and a medium bitter finish. Not an IPA by any stretch but nice nonetheless.

Maakun (966) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2014
Mahogany with big off-white head. Looks great. Sweet red fruits, blueberries, fresh brown dough, cookies, light chocolate. Taste is tart, with sweet body and nice bitter finish. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Big and complex beer, not a very typical IPA.

cards04 (2023) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
I loved this IPA. Pours an ugly sediment ridden brownish orange with fluffy white head that won’t go away. Aromas are great sweet Christmas oranges and citrus candy. Sweet citrus and candy aromas. Will well balanced. Delicious.

mmahut (1263) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 7, 2014
Pours in amber body with medium white head. Aroma has citrus with distinctive belgian yeast character, spicy, noble. Taste is malty sweet bubblegum with medium earthy short lasting bitterness. Body is fill, low carbonation. Interesting take for an IPA.

omikr0n (780) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at Rose Red, Bruges. Pours somewhat cloudy amber with nice lasting white head. Aroma is yeast, malt, hint of licorice and hops. Flavor is malt, yeast, candy, hint of hops. I wouldn’t call this an IPA, but it was still quite nice.

Une bičre ŕ mi-chemin entre l’ipa et la triple belge. Intéressant ŕ boire, mais Struise peut mieux faire. Amertume moyenne pour le style.

11.2oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Amber hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white head, no lacing. Raspberry, light fruits, sweet, apricot aromas. Earthy & fruity flavor up front, had a port wine taste finish.
