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

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - 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.

330ml bottle from the Good Spirits Co. Orange peach colour, reasonable head. Resin vanilla aroma. Hoppy citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A good beer which is an IPA with a Scottish twist.

visionthing (3764) - 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.

mile (3506) - 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).
