Scotchy (23) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2016
A perfect example of the Aussies doing American Pale Ale well. Beautiful hop profile, hoppy but not overly aggressive with a good malt backbone.

minutemat (4002) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours clear amber, white head. Aroma is orangey pith syrup & mild pine. Taste is certainly on the hoppy side, syrupy tropical fruit and caramel. Lots of resin with a bitter hop finish.

MonsterMagnet (1072) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle, pours clear orange with a white head. Fairly malty aroma with a light fruitiness. Taste is more pronounced with resin, peach, citrus and white grapes along the nice malt base. Light to medium sweet with a well dosed firm bitterness. Nice.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from Kensington Whole Foods. Beautifully tactile dinosaurskin-necked bottle. Sickly peach, menthol, batter and cough sweet aroma with 1 needle of spruce poking through. Murray mint, chip shop batter, peach iced tea and air freshener flavour aping my least favourite kind of US IPA that buries beautiful hops in a sludge of molten cough sweet and honey. A slew of Vomited Southern Comfort. Sorry it’s a 5 from me.
