JulienHuxley (5525) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Nice gold copper pour with white foam, clear. Good hoppy aroma, not spectacular but fresh and clean citrusy-piney (cascade?) aroma with notes of english malts and ale yeast. There are a few flaws in flavour, a bit of cooked veggies but overall pretty good, good finishing bitterness, soft malty sweetness. Palate is a little watery and low carbonation but still sufficient. Not bad, definitely an Isles beer.

Bottle. Pale golden amber with a white foamy head. Citrus/grassy hops on a light, caramel hop bedrock. An entirely drinkable beer.

puboflyons (3015) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2012
From the 500 ml. bottle marked Dec 2012. The pour is pale yellow with good clarity and a moderate foamy cream colored head. The aroma is actually very subtle with a mellow maltiness and a slight aroma of cantaloupe. The body is light to medium. The taste is moderately bitter and not overly hopped, which is how I think traditional IPA’s should taste.

Pours pleasant gold. Nose at first seemed like Cascade- hoppy notes seemed to have died down and smells more of sweetcorn, but not in such a bad way. Taste is more that of a pale ale than an IPA. Touch of lime and Calpol and a film of lingering sweetness at the end. OK.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle (with a far cooler label than displayed here) and served in Bells Tulip: Poured a slight hazy golden hue with a mostly fading head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of mild citric and herbal hop esters, golden promise malting, and a touch of heather, honey and earthiness. The taste offers a balanced but underwhelming profile (by Yankee standards), more akin to an APA than what I considered an IPA over here. Since the Scots have started to build a reputation for more brash beers (at least Brew Dog has), I was expecting more from this.... anyway as I was saying this is nicely balanced and would be a nice summer session brew, nothing wrong with that.

kindacold (235) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2012
I must first state that I an tasting this not from a bottle, but as a live ale from a cask. With that in mind, at room temperature this beer pours a nearly clear golden amber with no head. The smell is very mild, mostly floral. Tastes of well-balanced hops, citrus, caramel, lemon peel, and with a woody note. Feels like water in your mouth, with a slightly sticky finish that dissipates.

500ml Bottle. Thin head, light gold body. Ultra hoppy, a bit bready. Very nice indeed. Worth mentioning the coolness of the new label design!

Draft, The Sheffield Tap, Sheffield. Medium gold, slightly hoppy aroma. Slightly better than a Sam Adams I think.
