UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Pint from tap at the Gladstone Arms. Aromatic flotal IPA, very hoppy and slightly bitter with a dry finish.

Lane. Ciemnozłote, klarowne, z szybko opadającą pianą. Aromat cytrusowo-kwiatowy. W smaku cytrusowo, z kontrą słodowo-karmelową. Raczej mało przyjemna, średnia goryczka. Tego dnia piłem już lepsze.

PABen (30) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2017
330ml bottle @ 5.2% from whole foods. Pours Amber with little to no head. Lovely citrus aromas. Taste is a little underwhelming. Overall pleasant and enjoyable.

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
I usually like these medium strength IPA/APAs but the accent on the highly citrusy hops put this one out of balance for me. Usual rider that it’s probably somebody’s thing but ’tain’t mine .

jjsint (3518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle from the Station Tavern, Cambridge. Brownish gold with a small amount of off-white head on top - bit of visible carbonation. Gooey resin in the aroma, with some hay, roasted nut and earthy yeast. The sweet and gummy taste is pleasant but not a patch on the smell. Clean refreshing finish with more bitterness in the finish. A tasty APA, nice to make its acquaintance.

chimpgibbon (560) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle from Draft House Hammersmith as "N7 IPA". Slightly hazy darkish orange with small head. Quite pronounced spritz. Aroma is oranges and vegetal hop funk. Nice balance of sweetness and medium bitterness. Citrus rind, a touch of minerals. Tight carbonation. Very nice brew indeed.

olio (10593) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 12/2016.

Pours clear golden color with a very large white head. Strong herbal and mineral aroma, mild zesty tones, hops. Flavor is slightly wheaty, some herbs, citric, grassy, orange. Harsh carbonation pretty much ruins this.
