Swaroga (2165) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
33cl can. Amber with medium head. Because of this label I was expecting AIPA but its far from one. I mean its an ugly cousin. Long and herbal bitterness with roots and earth in the aroma. There are scents of US hops but the malts are more oriented English toasted bread then a nice muffin.

Fatehunter (2449) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is a clean grain and lemon zest smell. Taste is dank lemon and pine bitterness with a bit malt background. Texture is thicker.

malushky (119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours clear amber with small, off-white head. Hoppy aroma, mostly resin, hint of blackcurrant and cherries. Similar taste, blackcurrant and resin, slightly bitter finish. High carbonation, slightly watery but refreshing. Disappointingly low bitterness for an IPA.

I_LUV_BEER (223) - - NOV 2, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours copper-bronze colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, grass, caramel. Taste is caramel, molasses, grass, grapefruit. Medium body with medium carbonation. Simply WOW! Wonderful beer with clear and intriguing notes of hops and caramel.

pivnizub (10367) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle: Deep golden with a reddish sheen,stable creamy off-white head; moderate fruity and pale-malty nose with distinctive piney-hoppy aromas and a tinge of soy-sauce; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering malty and solid bitter-hoppy finish with hops sticking to the palate without being agressive. A very reasonable and well balanced english IPA...

Banzale (191) - FRANCE - OCT 20, 2016
Acheter terre de boissons dans la cit europe Calais. Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur, cuivre, superbe intensit , pas trop trouble. Peu de mousse. Au nez, cest fruite (mandarine ?), sucre, orange gorge de soleil, un peu de pche. En bouche, la pche et la mandarine sont l en premire note ! trs fin ! un coeur intense mais plutot sec, un peu de caramel mais cest leger. lamertume est discrte mais pas assez presente et persistante pour tre parfaite ! super trouvaille!

Antzrhere (141) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 330ml can, Booths; cask No.4 Pub Blackpool, England. I had this several times on cask, bottle and can and I feel the quality and hop taste/aroma is quite variable - sometimes fantastic, other times lacking quite a bit. Ive had to down-rate it in reflection of this. Poors a gold/orange with white head that disappears. Decent aroma of orange and pear. First taste is of caramel and slight metal followed by flavours of orange, tropicalfruit and pear. A bit of a muddled hop flavour but well balanced. A sweet beer with a short bitter aftertaste. Well balaced makes this a good session IPA.
