UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours yellow, slightly cloudy, big white head. Nose is salted caramel and big tropical hops. Bitterness creeps in. Taste showcases the tropical hops. Very mango forward. Salty and bitter. Great extremely sessionable stuff. Really good!

Brilliant IPA, excellent balance. Grapefruit is predominant with some biscuity sweetness. Quite a tame Bitter finish. Nothing bad about this beer at all.

hawthorne00 (2736) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white head that never quite disappears. Aroma of gooseberries, lychees, grapefruit, hay. Full bodied. No caramel, a little biscuit. Kept thinking I should like this more, but the pale malt’s genuineness just chugs along and fills things out without doing much else at the margin. Sweetness from that and tropical fruit is overtaken by grapefruit, pine and firm bitterness.

NikkTwist (1926) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Draft at Monks. Slightly hazy gold pour. Large white head that left runny lace. Lemon seeds. Grapefruit pith. Pine needles. Artichoke. Elderflower. Parsley. Fresh oak. Just a little barnyard on the nose. Lots of juicy citrus up front but finishes with a sharp bitter hop bite.

ElDesmadre (2153) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is unsurprisingly resinous and tropical hoppy with pine, pineapple, ripe mango, citrus (grapefruit mostly) and hints of blackcurrant. Sweet yet crisp. The malt backbone is strongyet because of pale malts having been used, felt only in terms of the beer’s thick body and heaviness. Intense hoppy flavour that uses its crisp tropical notes to balance the body really well. Strongly hopped yet still not overhopped, graceful so to speak. Great beer!

Eructoblaster (3296) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy golden body with an average white foamy/creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries fruity and coriander notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good IPA.

ACHops (927) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
On tap @ Bambino’s. Pours pale golden with thick creamy head. Aroma is mild floral hops and fresh cut grass. Taste is smooth pale roasted caramel malt and assertive, earthy, lemony, bitter hops. Quite flavorful but oddly not sweet at all which you might expect with this abv. Easily one of the best English IPAs I’ve had - clearly influenced by the newer west coast styles. Much stronger and hoppier than the standard English IPA.

Davros (2229) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
Pours gold with a small head. Nose shows light fruit: pears, apples, elderflower. Also some sweet light malt. Flavours instead focus on spicy and earthy hops with a soft light malt character in the background. Bitterness is not insane but stands out amongst the low malt.

SarkyNorthener (2819) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Drinking this whilst reading Pete Browns book on IPA, Hops and Glory. Bottle. Orange golden beer with a slight haze. Small head. Aroma of pine needles, orange and grapefruit. Taste is also piney with grapefruit and orange. But there is also a sweetness there, more than most IPAs. Quite carbonated, but this fits well. A very nice IPA, better than the Jaipur in my opinion.
