jmgreenuk (5833) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle from Bernie's, Solihull. A very clear straw yellow pour with a thin white head. No strong aroma but a heavy bitter taste which is more reminiscent of a poor lager than a quality IPA. There is little spice. Drinkable, but not my favourite and would probably not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deanso (6712) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 50cl bottle shared with friends. Thin white head. Citrus aroma. Clear golden pour. Nice enough but could do with more of a hop kick.

tmrmwel (1316) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
Sample from bottle shared with VANØ Bergen. Pours clear golden, with a quickly receding head. Aroma is a fruity hoppiness with oranges and flowers. Body is medium to full, with a soft carbonation. flavour is sweet with oranges, flowers, honey and a light zesty hoppiness leaving a bitter orange peel finish.

dogbomb (1070) - ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with a very thin white head. Nose is citrus fruity, but there’s something slightly sulphuric about it. In the mouth, it’s quite mellow for an IPA - nice fruitniness, good solid maltiness - flavours of cirtrus and zest and a little pineapple/mango perhaps. Very quaffable, the palate has a little zing, but doesn’t scrunch your face up like other IPA’s.

maxwelldeux (4169) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Interesting. Pours a darker golden color with a moderate head to it. Fairly strong citrus notes to the those with slight undertones of hops. Light and clean finish. Some citrus and a few hops notes in the flavor.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle by MAY 2013. Sweet hoppy nose on a bed of caramel, pours a clear orange with a short soapy white head. Little bit of a sourish tang in the mouth, lightly sweet with lots of sticky caramel, some alcohol and low bitterness. Malt tastes like sick, some golden charm but playing fast and loose. Flavorful but aggressive medium-full body, and a lot more in-your-face than I’d prefer.

Patrickctenchi (4955) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours hazy amber/orange..cloudy...small off-white head head. Very faint nose...a little spice...florals. Taste is somewhat like a scotch ale...toffee, malt,sweet...with a bit of hops...ends up not as candied as some Scotch’s .A nice take on the style, just enough hops to give it an unexpected edge. Enjoyed this one very much.
