AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2012
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours blonde with a hint of a haze and a nice lacy head. The nose has lemon and oatmeal. The taste has more lemon and oatmeal. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a nicely balanced finished. Overall, this is not what I would call an IPA but it’s quite a good session blonde. It grows.

bottle sample at beer bloggers conference
dark amber, limey hops, fairly full bodied, medium carbonation, edges dulled on bitterness a bit..maybe an older batch?

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Aroma hoppy, fruity, earthy. Light caramel. Clear golden to orange colour. Rather short lasting head. Taste is quite surprising with its up front hoppiness. Almost no balancing malt, which also results in a thin body. Fruity, zesty, earthy, moderate bitterness with a definite touch of sourness in the very beginning. Might just be a good beer in some way, but does not fit me at all.

visionthing (4779) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2013
33cl bottle at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours (pale) golden with a white head. Malty and slightly hoppy aroma with citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Medium sweet with caramel and citrus and a slightly spicy finish with a fairly decent bitterness. Ok beer, but not my favourite kind of IPA, a bit too much on the sweet side and not enough hops.

RichardGretton (4639) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry and nicely hopped, and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a long lasting bitter finish with some sweetness. Overall a nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
