matthewjk (987) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 15, 2011
poured from imported 500ml bottle (little past freshness date) - Damn, nice second offering from the brothers over there in Scotland. High pine, citrus, and a tad dark fruit in there. Definitely drier than your average American ipa. "Not bad!" were the first words out of my mouth upon first taste. Lots of flavor for a relatively low-alcohol ipa. I’d drink again.

TheGB (570) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours a light amber with little head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, mild hops. Light to medium bodied with a pretty good palate and a decently sharp acidic/carbonation kick at the end.

Mad_Ferret (760) - SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle at Bishops Folkunga, named Scottish Joker I.P.A. Clear golden with a sort bubbly cask like head. Caramel, butter, oranges, apricots and flowers on the nose. Quite much the same in the taste with a grassy bitter end. Medium to slight thinner body with soft tickling carbonation and some watery notes. A quite good refreshing british IPA I wouldn’t mind having as a regular on cask.

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2011
10/2/11. 500mL bottle. Hazy light orange pour with a small off-white head that’s gone fast. Light, but pleasant aroma of citrus, pine, and a bit of caramel. Light flavor of caramel, pale malts, earthy hops, and a bit of dish rag. Meh.

ogivlado (6416) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2011
Bottled 500ml. -from Biererei, Vienna. Golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation, pleasant hoppy nose. Unfortunately nose is better than taste. Moderate malty, hoppy and caramel with light bitter finish and aftertaste.

Countbeer (5337) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle: Small medium vast white head on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, floral and hints of yeast and fruit. Taste is a really different but still appealing one: hops, malts, caramel, spices, hint of something light liquorice/chocolate alike. Low bitter low malty but fine aftertaste. Low carbo, medium body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture. Different but nice ipa.

TATE (372) - Lubec, Maine, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of piney hops. The piney hops continue on in the taste and it is lighter than I was expecting. Also, the hop bitterness is much less than most of todays American IPAs. I enjoyed that it is light and easy to drink.
