Euggs (21) - Glasgow, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle, from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Perfectly drinkable IPA - as I’d expect from Williams Bros., who are reliably good - but this really didn’t have the hoppiness that it claimed which is a shame.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada clara, espuma normal. Aroma frutal y en boca lo que cabe esperar de una buena IPA: mucho sabor lupulado, melocoton, naranja y uva. Final muy amargo caracteristico aunque quizas menos que en otras. Perdura en cualquier caso. Muy buena.

sinte (410) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle 0.5L. Clear, deep golden body with large, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with some nice lacing. Moderate-to-heavy hoppy (flowers, herbal, some citrus) and light malty (cereals) aroma. Moderate sweet flavour with a moderate and nice balancing bitterness in the background; average bitter finish. Light-to-medium body with oily texture; average carbonation.

overtheline (85) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2015
500ml bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a nice tight white head that lasts. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter orange. Taste is more grapefruit and zingy lemon sherbet. Pretty long finish that dries up nicely without being too hoppy. Not a standout IPA but very solid and very drinkable and a steal at £1.49 in Aldi.
