craftyrocker (3) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2017 Schooner on tap in a straight beer glass at Beer Deluxe, Sydney. Appearance: Clear amber with a decent white head. Laces well. Aroma: Potent tropical fruits including passionfruit, floral notes. Taste: Fruity tropical hops upfront, caramel. Nutty malt finish. Very fresh. Light-medium sweetness ending in lasting medium bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high prickly carbonation near the beginning. Overall: Not a distinguished stand in the style, but a very well made Australian IPA. As a bonus, a schooner here was only $5!

floydian1 (1448) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 30, 2016
330ml bottle. Appears dark amber with a slight haziness and a decent white head that settles to a stable film. Nose offers mellow hoppy notes of citrus fruits (tangerines mainly), tropical fruits (mango, passionfruit), pine resin and caramel malts. Taste is medium sweet with a solid citrusy and resinous hop bitterness. Nice juicy medium-bodied palate with creamy texture. Better than expected.

Pusblud (8) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2016 does not count
Bottle, Dan Murphys. Good beer. A restrained IPA, not a hop bomb. Pineapple and other tropical fruits on the nose. At 5.8 can drink a few and still walk. Would definitely buy again.

Grumbo (2558) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle bought online from Saveur Biere. Pours a hazy golden brown with a quite firm and lasting off white head, leaving good lacing. Delicious fresh, hoppy aroma with notes of caramel, light malt and vanilla. Sweetness is light/medium, with medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body, texture creamy/oily, average carbonation. Long bitter finish, slight sherbet mouthfeel feel, with a light but lasting sensation of chocolate. A very very good IPA.

Zilb (294) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Bue 4 mois avant DLC avec Pap et Emilien en Bretagne. Bue apres la Mac Vadish qui etait tres orientee houblons americains. Biere ambree avec tres fin col de mousse stable a 3mm. Carbonation tres importante. Arome de malt toaste et de fruits tropicaux/agrumes. Final sur le malt legerement grille et orange amere. Amertume moyenne. Interessant mais presque "fade" apres la Mac Vadish qui netait pourtant pas une ipa et plus faible en alcool.

Lore (2626) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 14, 2016
hazy orange colour, medium sized dense off-white hed with yellowish notes; aroma of tropical fruits, floral notes, biscuits, some toast, hints of pine resins, grapefruits and orange zest; taste is basically the same with less intensity; really good IPA

Renobob (2026) - Besanon, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde effervescente. Grosse attaque amère, nez floral. Pas de sucre, bel équilibre. Finale courte et sèche.
