Bottle. Pours clear golden with a creamy finger thick off white head. Aroma is hoppy with bitter with citrusy orange peel, and grapefruit, spruce, blackcurrant and elderberries, and some tropical whiffs, as well as a nice malty back with mango and apricots. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with pine and resin, lemon peel and grapefruit, as well as some malty toffee, honey and some butterscotch. Lingering citrusy bitter finish with orange peel, lemon and grapefruit.

UXO (996) - CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with minimal head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, low piney and floral hops, caramel malt. Taste leads with sweet caramel malt, giving way to a lingering hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body, slick, with low sustained carbonation. This seems to be my third stale IPA of the evening. No buttered popcorn, but the hops in the nose were quite muted. The taste is pleasantly bitter, though. Not convinced it was all that fresh, but not bad.

Mondial 2014, mon coup de cśur du festival, une double IPA franche, houblon tranchant et hyper present, un peu de caramel, délicieux (et tres amer)

Splitenz (338) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Hop galore. Both aroma and taste is one of well balanced ingridience. Love the pines and citrus which tignled my nose. Good strength ABV and the thirst quenching pilsner malts. A real treat from way down under. Bottle, Grünerlřkka Brygghus.

jmgreenuk (6189) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 6, 2014
Tap at the Mikkeller Bar, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium to light amber with a super thin whispy head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a big alcoholic resin spice hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. The hop bucket really fell into this brew. Well controlled alcohol and nice and smooth. Lots of flavour and nothing dominates.

elbernays (995) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 31, 2014
500ml Bottle at home from drinkstore. Grass, pine, alcohol aroma. Sweet malt flavour medicinal like. Bitter finish and dry aftertaste. Alcohol not managed well and comes through strong. Not sure this travelled well.

Sigmund (5965) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
500 ml bottle, as 8 Wired Super Conductor Double IPA, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 8.8%. Crystal clear golden colour, apparently filtered. Moderate white head. Intense aroma of fruity NZ and US hops, a remarkable blend of lychee and other tropical fruits, citrus and white grapes. Also hints of spruce and caramel. The flavour is very hoppy, fruity, resinous and bitter, but also quite sweet. Far from "perfectly balanced", but still damned good and tasty.
