Sad24 (210) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 At the Norwich beer festival, really hoppy, citrusy, awesome taste. Loads of flavour. Not for the full....

caesar (5764) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from Sourced Market at St Pancras, cant find a BB date but I bought it 2 months ago, large sample. Slight hazy golden color, short frothy slight off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, slight biscuity malt. Quite bitter in taste, bit citrussy, some caramel sweetness. I expected some wild yeast as well, but it seems to be pretty clean instead. Medium body, soft to medium carbonation. Quite tasty.

Brandman (2354) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Cloudy yellow body, huge white head. Aroma has lots of hops, some very tropical exotic and fruity, some bit pungent and raw. Flavour is quite nice with harsh bitterness, maybe too harsh. Something like unbalanced, yeasty and burned. On the othre hand the fruitiness is juts great. Alcohol comes through a bit. A bit mess but still quite nice.

rodbod (74) - SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
330ml bottle from Oddbins in Glasgow. This is my kind of beer. Big ripe tropical fruit flavours, juicy, thick but not cloying on the palate. And of course, it’s hugely bitter. Perfect beer for a train journey.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Veldig lys gyldenbrun. Uklar. Lavt luftig skum. Fersken. Smaken det samme. Antydning til plommer. Balansert. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. Avslutter tørt.

oliodnb (522) - ITALY - OCT 5, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours cloudy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is full of sweet and tropical fruits with pineapple, grapes, orange peel. Taste is also very fruity with a sweet note just before an excellent resinous bitter hoppy dry finish. Excellent IPA.

Foffern (1405) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is hazy orange with a medium, light beige head. Fresh aroma of grapefruit, citrus, fruity hops, oranges, mango and mown grass. The flavour is also fruity with more mango, orange peel and grassy hops in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. An incredible fresh and fruity IPA. Well balanced and easy drinking.

AshtonMcCobb (3763) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
33cl bottle. Appearance - golden orange with a nice lacy head. Nose - orange to apricot with a creamy backdrop. Taste - mandarin with a yeasty edge. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy and yeasty texture and a long dry finish. Overall - wouldn’t say it was madness but actually very agreeable.

330ml bottle, cheers Ash! Pours pale gold with a light haze, thin white head. Aromas of resin, pine, grapefruit, sherbet. Taste is bitter, light sherbet. Quite thin body, tastes like it might have Brett yeast in. Gets sweeter as it goes down, balances out finally. Decent.
