Gachupines (1251) - USA - OCT 15, 2012
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is hops, mild pine and citrus. Flavor is intensely hopped but with a strong fruitiness. Definitely a strain of hop Iím not familiar with, very interesting though. Finish is a little dry, could be a little rounder and better balanced. Other than that this is a fantastic beer.

Keg at the Bottle Shop, Bermondsey. Nelson Sauvin version. It pours a clean golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet biscuity and fruity with notes of honey melon and caramel. Taste is also sweet and fruity with more caramel, honey melon and light citrus peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Rating #1208 - Bottle opened with Stephen at Sherbrooke. Genuinely excited as I love Hopwired. A slightly hazy amber beer with a huge white head. Aroma is even more fruit-salady than the original passion fruit, mango, sauvignon blanc, abound. The flavor is sweet pastry shop malt, tempered with the sweetness of tangerine, passionfruit, limey notes, and a bitter sticky hoppy note that lingers through the finish. Outstanding.

AgentAle (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma is earthiness, roasted malts, clove, citrus, very faint funk, caramel and yeast. Taste is a well balanced deep maltiness and hop profile. Very pleasant. The bitterness fades surprisingly fast. Appearance is a hazy orange with a medium head that retains very well.

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle just bought today at Value On Liquor Store, Vancouver; unfortunately it says Feb 2014, so this beer is at least 1Ĺ years old; batch 124
It pours a beautiful amber color, hazy, with medium sized head. As now itís expected, from the color we get that the flavor indeed rests on cereals and caramel, from the date that the hop aromatic components are lost. Good beer, obviously not what it was supposed to be though.

This bottle has a BBE label on the bottom of the bottle; itís not the worst solution, some put it on the cap, some with unreadable ink on brown glass, but itís also not the first place to look for; take example from Stone Enjoy By, the date is the most visible thing on the label!
