Monchito_IPA (114) - SPAIN - MAR 28, 2014
Ámbar oscuro, muy bonita y transparente pero con poca espuma. Sobresalen los lúpulos resinosos y el amarillo tanto en aroma cómo en el sabor. Final amargo muy largo. Un poco más de cuerpo le sentaría bien.

DandyLion (476) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Keg @ The Parcel Yard, Leicester. Darkish amber colour. Aroma is slightly fruity. Taste is sweet malts and a little bit of hoppy bitterness. It's quite nice but not anything amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Clear light brown with a medium sized good lasting creamy off white head. Dark bread, rye, citrus, dusty, caramel, grain. The rye is pretty noticeable. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Light/medium sweet and medium bitter. A bit thin finish, light bitter and dry, with lingering malty notes. It pretty much tastes like like an English take on an American IPA, which is exactly what it happens to be, so that makes sense. Not too bad, but still there is probably a trillion IPA’s out there I would pick over this one.

Pours dark caramel with thick yellowish head. Nice soft hoppy aroma. Tastes a bit caramel and fruits with a hint of berries.

tiong (3077) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2014
330ml bottle @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki

Pours dark reddish with a small white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, floral notes, berries and maltiness. Taste is smooth, slightly metallic and ripe fruity with hints of berries and floral notes. Finish is smooth and bitter with some stingy fruitness, floral and herbal notes. Quite untypical hop profile, not your typical IPA.
