pintbypint (3481) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
500ml brown bottle. The pour is golden. clear. The head is small, white, a bit of lacing, an average appearance overall. Orange hops in the nose, zest/peel, but light. Taste has some light floral hints, orange peels. Quick and dry finish, trace bitterness. Aftertaste has a bit of citrus. Average carbonation, lightish body. Usually I like Fuller’s products, but this does nothing for me.

ClubGonzo (5646) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Nordstan, Gothenburg. Pours a clear deep golden body with a small white head. Nose is nutty malts, hints of red berries and almonds. Taste is grassy hay notes, pale malts, nuts and almond-like tones. Hints of sawdust and faint caramel. Soft carbonation, medium body. Decent enough, but the label is kinda misleading so my expectations were higher; I forgot the British element...

Cantabrian (1100) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 9, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2012 Considering that some IPAs are among my least favourite beers (the West Coast versions), this was quite a remarkably good experience. Very mellow, seductive, sweet aroma, nothing of the pungent fruitiness one would expect from an IPA. I’ve no idea whether the Griffin Brewery uses copper kettles, but at least in appearance the copper/amber colour does indicate that this would be a faithful version of a true India Pale Ale. Flavours are crisp, a bit more fruity, with citrus and raspberry - yes, I could taste it: raspberries! This ale is another good example of an intelligent use of hops (as opposed to the London Pride). Even if it’s not a true IPA as per the American school, it’s great beer.

Bov (12543) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2012
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - clear amber-blond beer under a long lasting white and creamy foam; very flowery hoppiness with notes of caramel, earthy notes, medium-bodied; a decent bitterness and a moderate carbonation; quite dry and long flowery hoppy finish with lingering notes of caramel

Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
Mild aroma is fresh and fruity with toffee caramel and some nuts. Very good aroma. Pours light amber, clear. Short staying head, some lacing. Taste is dryer than aroma. Still fruityness. Maltiness is nice and diverse. Dries in long finish. Medium body. Light carbonation. Bitterish. Liked a lot. Fuller’s makes such nice beers.

elosop (384) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Rödblond, lite skum, tämligen bitter. Gör att vara 5,3% ganska svag eftersmak. På det stora hela en medelgod IPA. Re-rate 17/1 -14. Inte alls så besk som de flesta IPA man provsmakat de senaste åren! I övrigt samma betyg.

Hogfather (69) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle from Bierzwerg: One of the first IPAs I tried, and I can still remember it. Golden colour wit small white head. Aromas of citrus, grass, herbs. Nice hoppy taste. Medium body with average to high carbonation. Overall, a nice IPA.

mzaar (3265) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2012
Härligt ljusorange skum, som varar länge. Doftar mycket beska. Har också fin beska i smaken, men också en viss vattnighet. Detta gör att ölen känns lite tunn... lite avslagen. Men på det stora hela; helt okey.

Eirikur (386) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 18, 2012
Overall a very nice IPA. Mild and not too hoppy for some. A good middle of the road IPA
