oh6gdx (23917) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled. More or less black colour, with a off-white mediumsized head, that leaves lace. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild liquorice as well as some toasted notes. Flavour is mild toffee, chocolate, some toasted notes as well as liquorice and a quite rich floral and fruity hop profile. Nice bitterness, and actually the balance is rather ok in this beer.

mgajdaczewa (1233) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 17, 2015
W aromacie chmielowa świeżość, owoce tropikalne plus sporo ciasteczkowej słodowośći wpadającej w karmel, nadzienie różane, liczi, czyli na słodko. W smaku za to wytrawnie, lekko karmelowe ciało z wyraźnym słodkim owocowym posmakiem, nieco brakuje goryczki, jest lekko ziołowa, lekko żywiczna. Kolor nie wskazuje na CDA (ciemny brąz), ale piwo fajne.

Dogbrick (10418) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruby around the edges and a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and pine. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. I was honestly skeptical about an Italian Cascadian Dark Ale but I was pleasantly surprised with this above average brew.

Iphonephan (5280) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
On draft at Rustico Arlington. Pours a clear cola brown with a thick tan head. Grassy nose. Flavors of leather and light citrus notes. Moderately bitter finish.

Beersiveknown (4664) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 13, 2014
Keg@against the grain
Deep ruby amber with dense foamy beige head. Berry fruits and yoghurt on the nose, sherbet, sharp, perhaps kiwi hops, pithy dry finish. Decent but not really a BIPA.

teorn88 (5144) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at Kings Arms tap takeover, London. It pours a hazy dark brown color with ruby edges and a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and dried fruits, toffee. Taste is quite harsh roasty and bitter with notes of coffee, earth, cocoa, tangy red berries and piny hops. Finishes resinous and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent BIPA, not the freshest hops

trapped (1782) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 25, 2014
Draught. Dark brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, floral hos aroma, medium carbonation, pine and lavender flavored balanced hoppy taste, medium finish with slight bitterness at the very end. Quite a complex and interesting beer, loved it.

radzik5555 (635) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Ciemny miedziany/jasny brunatny, lekko mętne. Piana jasno beżowa.
Aromat: Intensywny, słodki chmielowy, głównie marakuja, melon, mango, ananas, żywica. Prażone bakalie, przypalony cukier, lekko tytoniowy. Świetny!
Odczucie: Wysycenie niskie, ciało średnie, faktura gładka, kremowo-oleista.
Smak: Lekko słodkie, zupełnie inaczej smakuje niż pachnie. Ma nuty palonych słodów, których w aromacie nie ma prawie wcale. Goryczka niska grejpfrutowa.
Całość: Nie wygląda jak BIPA ale poza tym świetne, genialnie nachmielone na zimno.

gianthogweed (55) - Cracow, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isn’t black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. It’s really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ’full’ body. a bit soury too, but it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.
