Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. Sweetish aroma with caramelly and resiny hops, biscuity maltiness, esters with exotic fruits and perhaps some sulphur. Sweetish and malty flavor with some caramel, rich herbal-fruity hop flavor and some metallic taste. Fairly strong fruity esters as well. Oily and butterly palate with soft carbonation. Fairly good ESB.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2007
(Bottled) Slightly hazy, deep golden color with a medium, fluffy and lacy head. Toffee-malty aroma with lemon-lime-piney, reasonably crisp but one-dimensional hops. Flavor of smooth, toffee-buttery-woody malt and underlying, distinctive, lemony hoppiness, and a long, bitter-lemony, even astringent finish. Lacks complexity, but still pleasant and quite balanced. Medium-bodied, silky smooth, yet pretty foamy-carbonated palate. The palate is very nice: somewhat like in the Very Bad Elf - with less alcohol, of course. Good balance and enjoyable - yet a bit one-dimensional - flavor. Still it always sucks when you buy an IPA, and only get a slightly more hoppy bitter...

Nice proper pint. SLight protein haze to it, very little head retention, good mouth feel, Fuggles very present on the palate, some nice fruity esters in the back groud, with a touc of malt just peaking through. Well balanced

entropy1049 (40) - Oxford, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Hazy gold to orange color. Nice white head demonstrating mild tenacity. Good hoppy aroma with some citrus. Nice and dry with good strong citrus flavor; hops nicely balenced with sweet malt. A little tame, but inspite of its gentility I really like this one...always tastes good to me.

As written many times before, this beer has a hazy orange/gold body and a thin head. Some cobweb-like lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus, but theres some malt lurking in the background, too. Flavor profile is made up largely of grapefruit rind and dried apricots. Very nice malt and hop balance, actually. With so many good IPAs on the market, itll probably be a while before I get back to this one; however, I will welcome it when the time comes.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2007
Hazy orange beer with thin but firm white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of acid and spices. Bitter flavour with notes of fresh hops and citrus. Sweet and fruity. Then comes the bitterness from hell. Ooooh I love it. This is a real IPA, the english way.

MiP (15328) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 Bottle, SBWF 06. OK hop aroma. Hazy golden colour. Hoppy flavour rounded off by maltiness. Well-balanced.

Nate (4246) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Nice hoppy aroma. Apricot and grapefruit and some resin. Fruity. Mild malt sweetness. Clean but mild. Golden amber hazy with thin white head. Medium-light watery body with medium-light carbonation. Starts with mildly sweet malts. Fruity notes, like apricot and orange peels. Bitter hoppy notes come into the finish, almost harsh. Bitterness lasts into the after, leaving a fruity bitter residue on the tongue. Slightly chalky. A bit weak but a decent quaff.

Lubiere (13061) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2006
A golden ale with a thin white head. An herbaceaous hops aroma, with light caramel notes, and some light gin alcohol. In mouth, a light malt with british hopping, very classy, herbaceous. A tad on the lighter side, but overall pleasant. Bought at BOTW in Feb. 2006.
