wedgie9 (2652) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tasted on 3/31/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at (had this one several times, but this one was purchased at) Frugal MacDoogal. Pours hazy bright orange with a thick white head that slowly settles into thick lace, leaving residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is earthy and spicy hops with just enough dark bread malt to provide backbone. The flavor is the same, really focused on the earthy and spicy hops with the addition of some orange peel, and the malt showing a bit more caramel. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nicely bitter earthy, spicy, and orange peel hops.

Homer Holland (3) - Amsterdam (Holland), NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2016 does not count
Meantime Brewing Company, Londen, India Pale Ale, IPA - 7,4 % Abv - barley and wheat - 75 cl - tht op glas onleesbaar ! - wat licht in alle opzichten en met een frisdrankachtig licht zuur prikkeltje (wel vrij kleine bubbels) ipv. echte, mooie, lekkere, fijne mousse - verder niet onaardig of fouten - voor een IPA redelijk, bijna pilsachtig, mild in de bitters (hops) - niet slecht, maar ook niet opwindend - goede dorstlesser, is ook geen compliment

AssKicker (265) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
Blonde lgrement ambre trs limpide la mousse gnreuse qui tient pas trop mal. Au nez cest le malt qui domine clairement. En bouche, cest lgrement sirupeux, la carbo est moyenne. Amertume assez franche, notes de malt et de rsineux. Une IPA clairement type langlaise. Pas mauvaise en soi, mais de nos jours on trouve bien mieux dans le genre.

LazyPyro (662) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy orange colour with a one-two finger off-white head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is malty, fruity, pine, hoppy. Taste of sweetish malt, fruit, light bitter hops. Not a big fan of English style IPAs but this one was quite nice.

Gangstergafje (741) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
The beer looks quite nice. The color of the brew is an nice dark amber, with a beautiful relish glow. The beer is very cloudy and has a lovely satin aspect. On top of the beer, a nice layer of soft foam is formed. The foam is white, with a tiny yellow tint. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a nice drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell is nice. Its not like the IPAs of nowadays. This beer is more malty and less hoppy. I do smell some citrusy hops, and some floral aromas. I also smell some red suits, like cherries, and some oakwood. There is also a nice malty aroma, with a little roasty touch. It isnt like the IPAs of today, but it is very good. I also smell some licorice and some spices. The taste is also very nice. It has the same licorice and spice touches, and the little toasty malt flavor. I also taste some lovely delicate hops. The beer has a nice fresh feeling. The palate is very good. The beer has a nice amount of gas in it and a nice bitterness that tingles the tongue very nicely.

guzgorog (750) - FRANCE - JUN 1, 2016
Robe blonde dore, limpide, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Les zenteurs sont trs citronnes, et lgrement maltes. Bouche agrable, galement sur le citron, un poil pice, amertume moyenne, faible pour le style. Longueur moyenne, corps moyen, carbo faible. Une "IPA" plutt de style anglaise, agrable sans tre exceptionnelle.

josanguapo (1228) - SPAIN - MAY 14, 2016
From Club del Gourmet of Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not bad, but traditional english hops arent as tasty nor aromatic as modern ones from usa, new zealand, etc.
