SlackerMads (3281) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015
Cask. Clear copper with a medium sized frothy off white head. Starts off pretty sugary, but some bitterness kicks in. Flavour is mostly tropical fruits; papaya, lychee and sugary malt, toffee. Feels a bit disjointed and heavy on the alcohol. The hops are tasty and I think it would fare better if the malt and alcohol was toned down.

Sweet citrus aroma and light amber in colour. Enjoyable hop forward balance with a nice clean finish. Very tasty.

[6390-20140627] Cask. Mild orange toast aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Toasted bitter malt flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7+/3/15) 3.5

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
2 bottle. Ribbed plastic beaker in a Travelodge. Aroma of vomited Southern Comfort. Dark orange gold thickly capped with white mousse. Bile and orange, dense tinned peachy iced tea, incongruously bitter fake US flavour with a waft of turmeric powder. No thanks- need a Brew By Numbers to take the taste away.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Golden honey appearance. Strange mix of fruity and creamy aroma. Quite bitter with a raspy flavour. Quite tangy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Alla spina. Nebuloso color giallo paglierino con un soffice cappello di schiuma biancastra molto persistente. Birra fresca, profumata, fruttata e luppolata, dal gusto mediamente amaro e con un bel finale persistente. Classico esempio di APA, setosa nella struttura e dalleffervescenza gentile.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Draught at the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Clear amber colour with a small white head. Floral and fruity hops, mild bitterness and mild herbs in the aroma. The flavour is darkish hops, moderate bitterness and dark malt. Not so fresh. Very soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HKdIPA (761) - HONG KONG - AUG 14, 2014
Tap from Taps Beer Bar in KL during layover. Translucent - almost opaque - orange amber pour. Frothy head. Aroma is sweet fruit and hops. Taste is sweet and fruity hops with a good amount of bitterness and a tiny bit of sour/funk. Crisp finish. Quite drinkable.
