JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2012
On tap at The Rake, London. Nice looking pour, a well carbonated, bright glowing gold. Nose is sweet and hoppy, gives the impression of potency even though it’s not a double IPA. Body is medium, palate a bit slick. Flavors are hardcore pine and hop resin, bitter all the way with just a perfunctory nod to the sweetness in the nose. Not bad.

Cunningham (4492) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2014
Nice unclear golden body with a solid white head. Nice lacing. Typical and fresh ipa aroma. Grapefruit hoppy and tropical fruity. The flavor are about the same. Really tasty and fresh IPA. Highly recommendable!
[Botttle from Vinmonopolet Alna Senter in Oslo, Norway]

Mango, pineapple and some citrus and grains in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a fruity and refreshing IPA, but maybe a bit boring.

ClubGonzo (4020) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body, small white head. Nose is pale malts, grains, mild straw and hints of grass. Taste is red fruits, berries, straw, hints of pale malts and grass. Medium to light body and carbonation. Extremely boring "IPA," even for the British tradition.

ianwelby (479) - SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Cask - hazy golden beer a good creamy head. Light grapefruit aroma. Flavour is also light grapefruit, hop and something a touch more sour which I can’t place for balance. Very tasty.

Ferris (4126) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Cask - Light grapefruit citrus and orange. Cloudy orange bubbly white head. Grapefruit rind and a light pithy bitterness. Not bad.

KnutAlbert (6085) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Fruit and flowers, dry mouth feel. Full body. A middle of the road IPA, unlikely to offend, should have a wide appeal. Resin finish, pale gold.
