Clear beer with a color of loght orange, delicate but interesting aroma of new zealand hops: white fruits and citrus (aroma could be stronger). Very nice taste with great bitterness, like a light IPA, very drinkable. Its a pity that the aroma is not stronger but still if You are a fan of NZ hops I strongly reccomend it

Benzai (8092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle [thanks John!] @ home shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy a bit pale orange color, medium to full sized off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is decently malty, decently hoppy and decently fruity. Tastes about the same. Quite decent on all aspects without standing out.

ComradeK (1006) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a murky chestnut, with a medium off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves a little lacing. Strong resin and grapefruit hops mix with a little caramel malt to create the aroma. Strong resin and spice hops up front give way to smooth caramel in the mid-palate, with grapefruit hops coming through in the finish. Despite being very hoppy, this is not the most complex APA around. It is pleasant enough, but I think it could do with a little more breadth of flavour.

dEnk (3773) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ home,thanks John! Aroma is citrus and aother fruity hops, some yeasty notes, hint of caramel and bready malt. Flavour is medium hop bitterness, fruity earthy and light floral, some malty notes. All a bit clouded by the yeast, while it’s been resting for days in the fridge. Still nice though.

500ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Murky amber brown, reasonable head. resin hop aroma. Biscuit, glue hop flavour, bitter aftertaste. Not the best looking beer, maybe that’s where the name comes from, but it tastes OK.

wimpyjoe (3706) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Amber with a smooth head. Boiled vegetables are abundant in its aroma with citrus orange as a afterthought, in its taste. A touch tangy in the palate.
