beerbaaron (1997) - Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Amber with a white head. Very Floral forward. Dry. Moderate bitterness. It’s fine.

Headbanger (4023) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2018
Old Rating Draft-Pours golden with a small head. Aroma of hops and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is nothing to write home about.

4.2
Esarsh (12) - HUDSON, New Hampshire, USA - APR 7, 2018
UPDATED: APR 7, 2018 Perfect Amber color straight from the bottle. Minimal lacing after pour. Smooth start with a gentle hoppy note. Would rank this is middle of all IPAs. I've had better but definitely have had worse.

3.3
BlackHaddock (8217) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2018
12oz bottle, poured into straight sided 16oz glass from Good People brewing Co, Alabama at home on 15th March 2018. Golden/light amber body, slight haze, wispy white head, even though I poured it robustly. Malty lead in the nose, some light floral notes mingle in there too. The taste is again malt led, semi-sweet molasses blending nicely with the Cascade hops. Decent enough.

3.2
Turtles (3308) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2018
Keg @ Bishops Arms, Hornsgatan. Clear golden, medium size white head, rich lacing. Malty aroma, caramel, bread and peppery notes. Smooth and mid-dry mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Malty taste profile, caramel, crisp bread, hay, bubblegum, herbal, floral and peppery. Pleasant bitter bite in the finish. Old school stuff!

SONOFWODEN (78) - New York, USA - DEC 30, 2017
Drinkable but otherwise unremarkable. Smells like, pours like, looks like and tastes like a straight up undistinguished IPA that in a blind taste taste you would assume was pumped out by a macro, non-craft brewer.

LED40 (125) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 12 fl oz bottle on Xmas Eve. Pours hazy golden with a thick fluffy white head that sticks to the side of the glass with a medium carbonation. On the aroma I'm instantly hit with notes of freshly cut grass and grapefruit juice. The taste is quite rich and slightly chewy with a hop forward backbone and slightly tart finish. The palate is rich and velvety. Overall, this is a very good representation of the style and while not outstanding is one that I would return to.

2.7
ochniczek (384) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2017
Bottle enjoyed during at Fenway Park in Boston. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring.
