JohnnyJ (4411) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Brown pour with an off white head. Lots of pine, roast, notes of chocolate, fruity sweetness, grapefruit, and moderate bitterness. My bottle says 5.8% abv. Good.

Sevenlee (1351) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours very dark with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, caramel, chocolate, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish. Nice.

Scopey (7097) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Keg at the Well & Bucket, during the London Bimble. It pours cloudy ruby with a thick beige head. The nose is earthy, toasty, rich roast and charred earth. The taste is bitter, roasty, toast, earth, charred wood and peppery grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good flavour for the abv. Nice stuff.

daje (2602) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body, big creamy offwhite head. Aroma of grapefruit, licorice, roast. Taste of caramel, pine, citrus, heavy bitterness, though a very short bitter fruity aftertaste. I feel it’s missing that final hop punch, but a bad beer it surely isn’t.

wyzzywyz22 (1976) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Piney hop, citrus, choc and a hint of roast present in the beak. A similar yarn unfolded in the sweetish flavour with some very tidy hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable and moreish. Great stuff. Meow.

skoisirius (1717) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tap at Mikkeller BKK in mid-March. An interesting Italian take on the IPA. More sour hop notes than you’d be used to drinking an American or English IPA. Still hoppy, but with sour grass. Good, not my favorite.

varanid99 (537) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
Cola-like pour with thin, quickly fading pale brown head. Slightly floral, slightly soapy aroma. Sweet, caramel, chocolate, a little aniseed, fairly strong bitterness. Interesting

hawthorne00 (2481) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2014
Growler. Amber with a modest pale beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, toast, a hint of chocolate. Truly bittersweet - no separate sweetness and bitterness, but lingering grapefruit and pine after sticky breadcrust and a little chocolate depart. Chirpy and engaging.
