wyzzywyz22 (1973) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle in the Clubhouse with a Coronation Chicken sandwich after after a sizzling 79 at Wirral Ladies Golf Club (off the yellow tees) . Dark amber pour with a meek off white head. Aroma a tad insipid but some hop and sweet malt present. More of the same flavour wise with some slightly lacklustre hop. Overall better than anticipated and considering the hoppage reportedly in there it should be half drinkable, but I smell an attempted cash-in , and ultimately its not really an American IPA as I imagine it should be.

visionthing (2799) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
33cl bottle at F-hoone, Tallinn. Pours chestnut coloured with an off-white head. Moderaye hoppy atoma with pine, citrus and light notes of tropical fruits, caramel and malt. Fairly sweet with somewhat modest hoppy flavours and a moderate bitter finish. Decent, but fairly boring.

StueyD (1177) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
A dark orange to brown coloured beer with a thickish off white head. A distinct citrus hop aroma, lemon and grapefruit, grassy and a touch piney. Dry mouthfeel. A mouth-filling hop taste, loads of lemon and grapefruit flavours, plus a grassy, piney flavour that brings on a dusty malt taste that bolster the hoppiness through into the finish.

Deu (716) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a short-lived off-white head. Nose has piney and resiny notes, along with some caramel and citrus fruits. Taste is nicely bitter, with some sweetness to balance it off. Lots of lingering bitterness on the finish. Carbonation is on the soft side and the palate is medium-rich. A nice decent IPA, well balanced and easy to drink.

- Poured from a 330ml bottle - Colour: Amber - Head: thin wispy head - Aroma: deliciously hoppy, not too strong, just right! - Taste & Texture: Very tasty, and refreshing..but that might be because I drank it after a long hard week!! - Verdict: would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
