Euggs (21) - Glasgow, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle, from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Perfectly drinkable IPA - as Iíd expect from Williams Bros., who are reliably good - but this really didnít have the hoppiness that it claimed which is a shame.

This was a good beer. Nice taste going down, strong aftertaste that lasts.

jjsint (834) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from the Blue Glass, Bedford. Yellow gold, small wispy white head with a reasonable amount of carbonation. Muddled but pleasant aroma: grain, citrus, buttered toast. The taste however is a step up: sweet and juicy with a bitter/savoury backbone. Lovely balance. This isnít an IPA but itís a good beer nevertheless.

rotaman14 (111) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2014
Golden amber colour, small white head. Caramel and pines on the nose. Taste is hops, bitter orange, some malty caramel. Good IPA.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) on the 11th September 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Zesty grapefruit peel in the short fruity aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt base gives a sharp citrus fruit base with grapefruit peel throughout. There is a dry dusty note to the grassy hop resins going long in the aftertaste. Finish is again dry with hop astringency coming through and dominating over any malt content. An ok session IPA but not as good as Fyne Jarl though.

yodapl (61) - POLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Kolor: przejrzysty, jasno-herbaciany, troche jak napůj jabłkowy. Piana: na jeden palec, drobno-pęcherzykowa. Aromat: herbaciany i - zaskoczenie- dziwnie jabłkowy. Troche słodki. Smak: słodkawo, herbacianie, całkiem odswiezajace. Rozczarowuje goryczka, wiem, ze to IPA, a nie AIPA, ale brakuje buchniecia chmielem. Jest to raczej angielska, herbaciana, odswiezajaca, sycaca IPA. Szału nie ma, sredniak.

Melkart (316) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - SEP 14, 2014
Surprising refreshing IPA. Light biterness. Short aftertaste. Aroma and taste is herbal.

Mjp12 (361) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Standard attempt at a west coast ipa, but doesnít warrant comparison with real examples. Thin, and lacking punch.

Great flavorful beer! Fruity and citrus aroma, intensive taste, sweet and refreshing with bitter aftertaste. Nice balance.

Hoppy, spicy, fruity. Strong, good nose, and a nice finish. Good IPA style, a good experience.
