lusikka (7413) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a copper colour with a small foamy head. Aroma is very mild with notes of grass, bready malts and some hay. Flavour of grassy hops, bready malts, mild raisiny sweetness and hay. Light bodied with a bit harsh carbonation. Can’t be an IPA.

lobs_ols (407) - LATVIA - JUL 17, 2015
Clear dark gold, medium white head. Lovely US hopa aroma - notes of tropical fruit, earl gray, and some roastiness. Medium body, balanced bitter with some sweetness. Delightful play of roasty body with the bitter nuances. Very good.

Aroma has a hint of barnyard and leather. Nice golden and hazy color. Very minimal head. Lightly bitter, hint of hops in taste. Palate has lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall not bad at all, I was wishing a bit more hoppiness.

bulldogops (1142) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Rating 1132 - 23.06.2014 - 12oz black bottle at @revolutionyeg. Aroma is grassy, lemon, pine, pepper. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, lots of grassy, spicy hops on the palate but very well balanced, citrusy sweetness of grapefruit meets a sharp dry-hop bitterness. Solid IPA.

Pours amber with a moderate head. Hoppy nose with a hint of citrus fruit. Fruity and hoppy flavour. Easy drinker, brilliant

Can from Morrisons. This must be one of the sweetest beers available. Super-sweet. If Thwaites rolled it back a bit, it would be a lot nicer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@The Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport (08/09/2015) - pours a fuzzy amber colour with white head. Medium sweet tropical and citrus fruity and malty aroma and taste, some caramel, grapefruit and peach, pine needles, hoppy bitter finish, not bad.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
330ml can: BBD 26th Feb 16, poured into a Chimay chalice at home on 19th Jun 15. Really liked it. Amber to copper body with a full white crown from a vigorous pour. Hops front and centre, malts giving a heavy backbone: fruity, bitter and tasty. Not as bitter or hop forward as a lot of the US West Coast big hitters but a very good beer in a similar style.
