yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. Some floaties in this one, else it’s hazy, golden-orange and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Fluor, something dusty, citrus peel and a touch of maltyness in the aroma. The flavor is on the citrus peel side, with resins and something malty in the back. Full-bodied, pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with bitterness and flavors of citrus peel and pine cones. A quite nice one, nothing more. 120817

BucannonXC5 (746) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on July 31, 2012 (picked it up for $4.99 at KnB Wine Cellars in San Diego, Calif., on July 28, 2012). Lots of head, maybe 3-4 fingers. Hazy, caramel, toffee color. Lots of thick, frothy, foamy, white lacing on the top. Great retention (foamy) on the sides and the top. Smelled wet (cascade?) hops. Soap, poor man’s pine, lime. Got a little mint in there as well. Taste wasn’t much better than the smell. Really bland. Got some pepper spices, which I didn’t smell. Also light pine and soapy notes. Bitter on tongue after. Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt bitter finish. Just didn’t think this beer was anything special at all. Skip it!

zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. Cloudy orange amber coloured with bitter orange marmalade and tropical fruit flavours and a sweet red fruity and grapefruit finish. Excellent!

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy amber color with generous head. The aroma has both a very nice hop (fruits and resins), and dust. Dry toffee flavor, followed by an extreme resiny hopping, leading to an equally powerful and long final.
This is one of the few American beer with quite some sediment, but controlled.
Straight bold IPA, but without the freshness that it should have.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Nice slightly hazy copper coloured body with a large, soapy off-white head that sticks up nicely, around three centimetres. Aroma of fresh herbal and slightly earthy hops with a touch of pine in the mix and a solid base of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong, grassy, herbal and piney hops at the front end with a good malt balance and a slight bitter and metallic note near the end. Aftertaste is nice with a lot of hops, some pine, a bit of grapefruit all meshed around the light alcohol flavour and a stronger malt backbone. Overall, a rather nice IPA - showing a ton of hop characteristics, a lot of bitterness all with a solid backbone of malt. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Super Jr Market (BestDamnBeer Store) in San Diego, California on 06-May-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2012.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2012
66 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy amber with some sediment and a decent off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity and piney hops as well as some malt. Taste is fruity and piney hops and some malt.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Resinous, nutty, green, earthy. Malts are wholesome, bready and doughy, with a graham-cracker-like sweetness. Lots of hop flavors. Aromas are somewhat muted and bitterness is on the mild-to-moderate side. Nothing necessarily bad; just some subjective notes. Tastes more like a fresh hop pale ale than an IPA.
