Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2012
On cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of passion fruit, caramel, a little grapefruit and alcohol. Similar flavours with lots of passion fruit again. Nicely bitter with mild carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel.

mile (2960) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical - floral fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and some floral fruitiness, light piney - citrus hoppyness. Fruity IPA - could use more bitterness (and less caramel).

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?

mr_h (2816) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2013

visionthing (2682) - Oslo, NORWAY - 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.

culchiem (2487) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold with a thin head. Aroma is fruity hop. Flavour is a nice mix of fruity sweet and bitterness, peach and apricot with a growing bitter palate.

AshtonMcCobb (2465) - 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.

RexTalionis (2407) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 03/2014. Pours clear golden in color with a thin white head. Grassy bitter hops, sharp piney notes and forrest in aroma. Sneezing effect here in this. Bitter grassy hops in taste, some sweet maltyness as well. Buttery and notes of hay also. A bit like a hybrid between an IPA and Dortmunder Helles. Grassy, sweet buttery finish. Okay, perhaps more grassy though, but with that slight burnt grainy feeling though.

BenH (2245) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden worth decent white head. Big pungent hoppy aroma, lots of grapefruit, citrus, mango (nelson?). Taste has lots of fruity hop flavours, orange, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, some caramel and biscuit. Decent body with a mildly bitter finish. I like this

Bottle at home. Pours golden amber, sweet fruit, dry toffee, little bit of a harsh finish.
