Bulk_Carrier (5043) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a golden bronzed to semi-muddy burnt orange sort of color. Thin cap of a white foamy head. Stringy lace. The aroma had a semi-sweet grassy to bitter burst of citrusy to earthy hoppiness. Somewhat dirty, but an ample caramel/toffee malt backbone comes in for balancing. Light spicy effect from the fuggles hops. The flavor yields to the dirty earthy hops. Citrusy bitterness seems a bit in the background. Pleasant earthy to citrusy to malty sort of aftertaste. Seems to pitch some dirt in the finish, left me scratching my beard. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fair sessionability to it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt good as suspected. Overall, English IPA is what this is supposed to be and for the most part it is, but I would rather have one with more of a clean earthiness, less "dirt" or no "dirt" really. I could name a bunch of other English styled IPAs even in the American market that I would much rather have than this.

From old backlog. Orangey golden with foamy head. Dried crandberries, spice, lemon, bread- all very faint. Lightly hoppy and dry. Medium bodied.

Leighton (20596) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at GBBF 2013, day 3 - London. Pours deep gold with a light cream head. The nose holds cedar, dry citrus, pine. Light sweet flavor with hints of brown sugar, dry wood, spruce. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish with more spruce, pine, cedar wood, dried orange. Meh, kind of odd. A little too woody.

tnkw01 (1747) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Clear, light orange-copper. Medium head. Aroma is light hoppy spiciness with hints of citrus and pine. Taste is a tad sweet up front but with a hoppy-bitter finish.

Maxbier (941) - Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Pale slightly hazy copper color with dissipating white head. Musty lemon citrus and malt crackers aroma. Taste; first thing is big lemon citrus bitter. Malt feel is biscuity ESB type palate, hop is earthy English hint of lemon in the finish. This brew is as described on the label. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2929) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Nearly clear copper-orange with a 3-finger off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, earthy hops and pine. Rather bitter taste of grass, tobacco, pine, bread, earthy hops, mild citrus soap and caramel. More bitter than balanced. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe the bottle was spoiled, but this is the most overly effervescent beer I've ever drank. While I suspect here are some good flavors in there somewhere, they're hidden in some extreme bubbles ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
