Kauge (50) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from SuPerAlko in Tallinn (€ 1,99 + 0,08), July 2014. Pours a dark (almost reddish) amber with a retaining tan head. Nose is sweet, most characterised by caramel and honey, then some resinous and piney hops. More plain malts as it warms. Nose is overall very nice, soft and warm. Taste is sweet, caramelly malts and only a slight, earthy hoppy bitterish finish. A soft, smooth palate with low carbonation. It is good but where the hell did all the New World hops disappear to?! The ’American IPA’ and ’intense hit of hops’ written on the label sound like a big joke here; it’s indeed more like a good honest (old school) British IPA.

oops (200) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours light copper/amber with white head. In aroma - pine, citrus and some sweet notes (honey). Little sweet, but bitter aftertaste helps. Nice beer.

Holmen2 (622) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
From cask at Jolly Gardeners in London. Dark amber. Head diminishes quickly. Aroma of American hops, grape fruit and pine needles, combined with malt and cereals. Similar taste. Not quite in harmony.

Garry_Evans (19) - HONG KONG - JUL 5, 2014
Dark amber with small white head. Spiced orange aroma. Soft on the palate with orange, cinnamon, and very dry long finish. Good hoppy IPA but lacking a little bit of finesse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 4, 2014
Light amber golden body and stable head, looking fine. Freshly and surprisingly aggressively hopped, even for my beer nerdy taste buds. Smooth (enough) palate making was for a pleasant dominant bitterness with malty support as it should. Surprisingly drinkable, flavourful and interesting! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

angelkostvo (555) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 1, 2014
Ruby colour, small head. Aroma of caramel, quince, mandarine, raisins. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Quite drinkable, may be a bit sweet for an american IPA , but i like it.

thb (671) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
lovely sparkling burnt amber with half inch of foam. Aroma is floral hops, chalk, lemon. Hops provide more bitterness than aroma, leading to a somewhat bland taste. Could be it’s past its prime too. Cereal malt backbone becomes quite noticeable. Comes across very much as an English IPA, not an american one. Nothing wrong with that per se, but still not excecuted 100%

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled sample. Copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pine sap, sweet orange and white chocolate. Initial hits of conifer and syrup in the mouth, but dries out quickly with notes of chalk and navel orange. Medium bodied with a fair bit of bitterness. An odd trans-Atlantic combo.
