Grumbo (1782) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle bought online from Saveur Biere. Poured carefully, pours a cloudy pale amber colour with a lasting off white head, avoided much of the bottle sediment of which there was a lot. Aroma is lightly hopped, malt, caramel, some fruit and honey notes. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, texture is silky creamy. Soft carbonation. Finish has a creamy feel and lasting fruity bitterness. Quite a decent IPA.

Alengrin (4826) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2016
Well-known new style fruit IPA by Qubecs Dieu du Ciel, with very thick, frothy, lacing, egg-white head and hazy ochre-hued straw blonde colour. Lovely aroma in which actual kumquat is very recognizable, starfruit, lime, minerals, green olive, dried mango, unripe melon. Crisp, fruity onset, very refreshing with impressions of kiwi, starfruit and lime - or, indeed, real kumquat, sweetish and sourish, with some minerally carbonation surrounding it, finely tingling. Supple, slightly oily mouthfeel, somewhat grainy, lightly bready and subtly caramelly malt middle, resinous and very aromatic finish, New World hop features of unripe mango, lime zest and grapefruit cleverly mingled with the ongoing kumquat, drying, a bit spicy and delicate, but perhaps a bit too soft in bitterness for an IPA. Still, in the new trend of cloudy fruit IPAs, this is exemplary.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2016
Huge, dense just off-white head over fully (cold)hazed if bright orange beer. Citrus, orange,... (huge head hampers the perception). Light citrus, some orange, soft pepper, bit of vanilla and banana. False body, creamfilled and -texture, not really heavy. Aftertaste leaves a quite dry impression. Fresh, light.

crossovert (11817) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2016
341ml twist off bottle. Orange pour. Aroma is a bit meady, not sure on the age of this. FLavor is good enough, more kumquaty, not very bitter, malt is a touch caramel. It needs a bit of work.

matbigrey (116) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
341ml Bottle. This beer intrigued me for a while, finally decided to pick it up. Slightly hazy golden color. Nice 2 fingers layer of head. Aromas of lemon, oranges and tropical fruits. taste is pretty much what you would expect from an IPA . Dry, light, slight pale malts notes with strong hops presence. The after taste is more whats unique about this beer, the hoppy and kumquats biterness... I dont know but it feels a little bit odd to me. not sure they go well together but that is just my opinion. Other than that the beer delivers and its pretty good.

Evilkniamhel (689) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines Dalry Road. Pours cloudy orange/gold. Nose of...kumquats!, pine resin, floral, grass, fresh fruit. On the palate, very bitter, dry, citrus skins, funky, full-bodied. Interesting and very enjoyable.
