Zlotta (1843) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2016
On tap at ’Hoppy Days’. Clear, brownish amber with a medium large, frothy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity and a little resiny aroma of mango, orange jam and some pine. Sweetish, fruity, slightly resiny taste of mango, orange jam and pine, followed by a rather long, moderately bitter, quite resiny and quite dry finish. Medium to full body, quite creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

77ships (7437) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2016
THANK YOU RB PEOPLE! Sampled draft @ Hoppy Days! Deep amber, creamy white head. Nose is mellow barn hay hop, white pepper, hay, caramel. Taste is mellow caramel, malt, touch complimentary butter, toffee, butterscotch, white pepper & complimentary burlap sack hops,.. body is butterscotch & toffee. Sweeter than it probably should be for the style but the toffee & butterscotch notes are pleasant, drank decently, not bad.

Alengrin (4340) - BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2016
Draught at Hoppy Days during Carnivale Brettanomyces. Creamy, densely moussy, thick, egg-white head over a warm, clear orange blonde to amberish beer with delicate but vivid fizz. Aroma of pink grapefruit, tangering, pine resin, sweet onion, biscuit, some ureum, mandarin peel, dried mango. Crisp, clean fruitiness, mango, kiwi and green banana hints, hop bitterness already popping up at the onset and growing in intensity towards the end, as it ought to be in this style; in the middle, it meets a creamy, supple, softly carbonated, biscuity and lightly toasted malt body. Lovely retronasal grapefruit and piney aromas, very long lasting bitterness but not too harsh, some warming alcohol at the end. Elegant, well-balanced, rich DIPA - just the way I like them. Nice find!

MSBrindbergs (664) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2015
Flaska från De Bierkoning i Amsterdam. Grumlig rödbrun vätska med lättare ljusbrunt skum. Doftar karamell, citrus och disktrasa. Smakar detsamma. Sur i eftersmaken. Inte så rolig, men jävligt cool etikett! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Hoppy Days. Hazy dark orange color, medium sized off-white to beige head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, light to moderately resinous hops, moderately bitter. Medium body and soft yet suitable carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (16467) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerko, 14/07/15. Amber with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, light spice, earthy citrics, peppery notes. Taste comprises bitter orange, caramel malt, bread dough, straw. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Adequate DIPA, hops don’t shine enough for me.
