Pours clear amber into a glass from a bottle. Offwhite head is three-four fingers high, with big creamy and sticky bubbles. Big chunky lacing left on the sides.

Aroma is very piney, hoppy and has a bit of a malt character. Flavour is very clean, grassy, hoppy and fresh. There is a very good balance to the flavour, nothing apart from the aromatic hop profile, really standing out.

Feel is light-medium bodied, with dy finish.

Quite nice beer, very balanced and drinkable.

Hazy golden color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma is mostly fruity and fresh with pineapple, pomelo and white grapes. Taste starts different as expected, somehow nutty, quite bitter and earthy, but continues with really nice white grape flavors and sweet citrus fruits. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Surprisingly good IPA.

Keg, Moor Brewery, Bristol - Pours hazy amber with white head. Lovely lacing. Smell - lots of hops, grapefruit and malts to the fore. Taste - Fruity, hoppy with a nice bitter finish. Very nice well balanced brew.

Pours a burnished gold colour; clear. Head is off-white, dense, pretty good retention and great lacing. Looks great.

Nose is very fruity and succulent hops: mango and kiwi, pawpaw as well as a cake batter malt base. Could use more grounding, but it's pleasant.

Taste is also very hoppy: plenty of that fruit punch upfront. Mango, touch of guava, yeah sweet stonefruit mostly. Not much of a punch at the end, slight bitterness but it's quite mild, and lets the fruit notes remain dominant. Nice enough, but not really my thing.

Nice body, good presence. Dries up subtly at the back. Great texture.

Easy-drinking hoppy beer. Would like more gravitas though, it's a little too bright and sparkly.

A 660ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. ABV is stated as 6.7%. Picked up a while back from Beeritz. As the label says, Hoppiness = Happiness.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A bright orange-amber hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of faint fruity hops with hints of white fruits, grass, caramel malt, subtle grain and ale yeast. Rather subdued.

Tastes of mildly fruity hops and yeast with a spicy, bitter finish. Notes of faint grapefruit, peel, mild citrus, white grape, grass/hay, a twinge of pine resin, earthy yeast, caramel malt and stewed hops. The booze is nicely hidden. Well-attenuated, followed by a spicy, hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with light carbonation and good body. Hop oils stimulate the palate. Quite astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, earthy yeast and faint caramel.

Not bad, though not as intense as I had anticipated. Perhaps I've hung on to it for longer than I should have. Looks nice, however the aroma is rather ambiguous and lacklustre. The flavour is better; more hop aroma and an assertive bitterness that lingers. Good body. There's a lesson here - drink the hoppy ones first. Goes down nicely, worth sampling if you have the chance (just don't sit on it).
