ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2012
Can, from Ølbutikken. After all the "Best Performer of the Week"-hype here on Ratebeer I’ve picked up one of these nifty cans out of curiosity. Let’s see what all this is about. Poured into my tulip glass, this one comes out as a slightly hazy, pale yellow beverage with a small white head. Nose is very fruity, with melon, cranberry, strawberry, hints of grass, pine and gooseberry. Very, very nice. Taste is flowery grass tones, lemon touches, grapefruit, hints of grass, earth and lime. Citric bitterness dominates, along with a substantial amount of sweetness at the same time, which doesn’t harmonize in my mouth somehow; where the aroma promised me heaven taste did not quite deliver. Medium carbonation, and very easily drunk for its ABV. All in all an OK DIPA, but nothing more. So what’s with the hype? :-P

Taking the on-can recommendation with this one and drinking it from the can. A bit strange, given that you lose the appearance/aroma qualities, but, hey, brewer’s choice. This is a really nice IPA. Alcohol is high (8%), but hidden, and it really is just all about delicious hop flavor. A bit sticky or resiny. The art is cool, too (I’ll balance the lack of being able to see the beer with the good art and the black tab). Not over bitter. Somehow stays balanced within the realm of the hugely hopped. Nicely done.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2012
Dåse: Gul let orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Dejlig sødlig duft af humle, konen kunne ane kattepis. Jeg havde mest citrus og sød malt. Smagen er igen dejlig humlet med en blød karbonering. Dejlig øl, godt balanceret, men ikke outstanding.

16 ounce can thanks to Dallas. A wonderful presentation. Pours a very cloudy orange color with some particulates floating around and a medium white head. The aroma is big resin and citrus, lemon dominates. A rich brew with grassy and zesty citrus flavors, lighter resin, very zesty and superbly drinkable.

beerbastard (669) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2012
I’ll never forget the first time I tried this. Thanks Dak! Big honey grapefruit nose with a mixture of other tropical fruits. Wonderful flavor of orange and mostly thick oily grapefruit, with a great balance of sweet maltiness to back it up. Low bitterness and great palate. The finish still has citrus, but not too bitter or dry. This beer can take the place of my morning juice and not only a great breakfast drink, but great any time!

Stunmai (4) - USA - MAY 25, 2012 does not count
This is just an awesome beer. The hops are thick and delicious, and with a wonderful taste, even though it comes from a can. I am not even going to try and describe the taste, all I can say is if you are in the area drive over to Waterbury Vermont and give it a try. Its a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Looks like dirty sewer water dumped into a light beer, smaller off white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, marijuana, onions. Similar flavor, lots of onions, garlic, tomato, juicy fruit, papaya, and orange. Bitter finish, pretty dry for the ABV. Reminds me exactly of what Toppling Goliath is doing around here.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 can pour. medium-dark gold body suggests a high pale malt grain bill percentage (encouraging!). pungent and musty fresh hop ones in the nose come across as a mix of C-note fruit, Simcoe-like cattiness and Summit-like vegetables (onion / shallot / garlic). Highly bitter with low relative sweetness results in a wonderfully balanced but brutally bitter IPA in the vein of Pliny the Elder, though more rough and acidic and less fruity. Still, wonderfully flavorful with a vibrant texture front to back.
