floydian1 (1414) - 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 (2000) - 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 (233) - 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.

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 (1917) - 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.

330ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Hazy orange amber colour with a thick white foam head leaving lacing. Aroma of mango, orange, mellow hoppy. Taste is malt caramel with juicy mango, floral citrus and pine, hop resins and tangy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry dusty bitter finish. Nicely drinkable IPA.

cervmagpt (734) - PORTUGAL - JUN 17, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 12C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: moderate hop aroma with citrus notes. background of an almost neutral slightly sweet malty background. APPEARANCE: golden ambar color and hazy. medium light ivory head with moderate persistance. TASTE: similar to the aroma with moderate hop flavor (citric, some pine, slightly grassy). medium-low to low malt background, slightly sweet and a faint toffee note. medium-high bitterness that endures after an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body and slight creamy. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average IPA.

erickok (5686) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Better than expected aroma, well hopped and balanced. Simpler taste profile, drinkable but to short aftertaste. Still a great BBQ beer I reckon. Much better than expected. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)
