Stracey (39) - Pelham, Alabama, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours golden with white head that hangs around. Slightly floural aroma. Taste is a little odd. Maybe poor ageing. An almost stale taste. Still ok and not sure it is any faulty of the beer itself.

Piana trwała zdobi szkło. Kolor złoty klarowny, Aromat ubogi ale piwo pite po terminie lekka owocowość, kwiatowy, przyjemny. Smak średnia słodycz, karmel chmielenie cytrusy i kwiaty, goryczka wyraźna ale nie wysoka. Bardzo dobre piwo szkoda ze piłem po terminie świeże dało by więcej.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Review from memory. Many bottles drank in Wetherspoon over the years they carried it. Will hopefully return to this one day and give it a proper review.

ZodiacM (1350) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2017
LCI. Van de tap @Robuust IJsselstein. Aardige IPA, niets bijzonders: bitter, hoppig, niet zo fruitig als de Amerikaanse IPA's

Hopverdju (1642) - BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2017
Helder amberkleurig bier met ecru kleurige schuimkraag. Geur: wat brood, hoppig, fruitig, sinaasappel, licht alcoholisch. Smaak: licht bitter, hoppig, fruitig. Fris mondgevoel. Dunne body. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter, licht alcoholische gloed, ietwat kruidig.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Londen IPA. behoorlijk 13 in een dozijn. Relatief bitter zonder wrang te zijn. prima, niets mis mee, maar ook weinig goeds eigenlijk.

SimonBlok (864) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: hazy light amber with medium, white head. Aroma: candied sugar, resin, plant material and some zest. Taste: fairly high sweetness and pretty high bitterness. Notes of earthy yeast, candied sugar, some citrus. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and lively carbonation. A bit harsh in the finish. Don’t like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Jun 2006 Poured from corked and caged 750ml bottle a hazy reddish gold with light carbonation and a medium sized head of foam that sticks around forever and has nice lacing. The smell has a nice grassy hoppy nose to it but I also get a good wiff of caramel malt. The taste is big and bold! Huge sweet caramel malt up front with a bit of grassy and citrusy hops(love them Fuggles and Goldings) right behind it and man, after a few sips, you get the feeling that this is gonna balance out but...it doesn't. Make no mistake aboot it, this is a malt dominated IPA and it works so darn well! My hat's off to Meantime! Bottom line: Best example of an English IPA I've ever tasted and I hope to buy more on my next visit to Colorado. Folks, this is a winner!!
