DraftDodger (1703) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2017
Copenhagen 1/10 2017. 50 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Pretty simple label saying "Big Job - Massively hopped" with some Hop plants in the background. Just to demonstrate the point. Pours clear yellow with big bubbly white head. Settles as patchy, flimsy, thin layer of foam. Aroma is strong and mostly bitter. Sweet undertones of exotic fruit and prominent boozy notes. Strong slightly fizzy carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is lightly sweet and dominated by strong bitterness. Citric sourness. Aftertaste is quite bitter and a little rough and with healthy boozy streak. Finish is dry. Pretty run of the mill Imperial IPA.

rauchbier (3933) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2017
Bottle, from Morrisons. Orange gold, thin short lived white head and low condition. Solidly hoppy nose with dominant tangy grapefruit and pineapple fruitiness, some slight peppery spiciness and a gentle malty sweetness. In the mouth it is hoppy and bitter with a slight chalkiness, theres some grapefruit citrus and a faint musty note, with a hint of warming alcohol and some sweet malt. Finish is muted but persistent fruitiness with hints of bubblegum and some lingering chalky hop bitterness.

GemmeDeReve (119) - FRANCE - JUL 20, 2017
Bi?re blonde avec une belle mousse blanche et pas mal de carbonation. Une belle amertume au nez, ar?mes de fruits acidul?s, belle p?tillance en bouche, elle a vraiment le go?t du houblon de l’ipa (citrus et cascade) , l’amertume en bouche n’est pas trop persistante, elle est assez claire en bouche, manque un peu de rondeur, mais tr?s rafra?chissante, une belle bi?re ? boire en ?t? avec sa grande capacit? (50cl). La bouteille faisant penser ? une pils allemande elle d?note pas mal des bi?res anglaises.

josanguapo (1920) - SPAIN - JUL 12, 2017
From Labirratorium. In Ikea’s pint glass. Playing Brothers A Tale of Two Sons. Fresh and refreshing, zesty, grassy,with citrusy citra notes standing out but still maintaining an english highly-drinkable character. Some sediments.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle. First can someone that 7.2 per cent is not an Imperial IPA. This certainly does not come into that category. Apart from that it is quite fruity but not packed with hops as the label claims. Trading Standards where are you? Never the less it could have been worse.

DoctorHU (602) - UKRAINE - JUL 1, 2017
500 ml bottle. Clear golden colour and white head. Aroma interesting mix of different hops varieties, citrus some floral and resiny notes along with some sweet malts to it as well. Taste is rich yet smooth, not overly hoppy with a cohesive caramel and tropical fruit blend. Hugely enjoyable and worth the wait.
