SamP01 (648) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a pale golden yellow with a slowly fading white head. Aroma is of citrus floral hops, biscuit malt, some caramel, fruity with mild grassy notes. Taste is the same as aroma with some mild bitterness. A medium body on the palate with some mild carbonation. Finish is sweet biscuit malt, mild grassy notes, fruity with some yeast followed by some good citrus floral hops for balance. Overall a well balanced, enjoyable brew for the style. A solid showing.

tasurinchi (19) - ROMANIA - JUL 13, 2013
Pours hazy light golden. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body. The fruity aromas are very nicely balanced without being too agressive. Very easy to drink which is actually pretty dangerous, since it has a high ABV. An India Pale Ale exactly how I like it.

Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy bright yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops flavours with light sweet malt undertones. Taste is also dominated by sweet undertones with non-deScript cereal notes and some citrus floral notes that are quite nice. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Prefer the Nelson Sauvin IPA by the same brewery better but still quite enjoyable.

glennmastrange (2526) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain and cereal for the malt, light to moderate orange and grass for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with light dried fruit in the background. Head is small to average size, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky amber, and has some big chunks at the bottom. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, a touch syrupy and has a soft to lively carbonation. Definitely a an English IPA, no powerful hop punch like an American, but all nice smooth and easy drinking aspects.

From the tap poured a cloudy yellow brew with a thick white head. Aromas of malt, stink foot and hops. Full bodied with sweet malt and citrus flavors.
