SimplySike (875) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2013
33cl. Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma citrus, floral, fruits, hops. Taste bitter, some sweet, really bitter finish. Mouth-feel bit oily, dry. Great IPA!

CanCrusher (642) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy amber colour with small beige head that falls down into a perfect crown. I would expect stronger aroma, as it’s IPA. Aroma of hoppy flowers, sweetness, smoke and grapefruit. Taste is heavy bitter, so is the aftertaste and the bitterness stil increases even after you swallow the beer.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is a nice piney, and floral hoppiness, with mild alcohol. Taste is pine with mild alcohol, mild bitterness.

Pyrmir (3351) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013
330 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Aroma is citrus, fruit, caramel and hints of wood. Tastes of fruit, caramel and fruity hoppiness

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
mcberko (6420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
On tap at Birmingham Brewdog, pours a clear golden / copper with a small beige head. Aroma of English hops, biscuity malts, and some vegetal notes. Flavour is chaotic as the name suggests, with abrasive zesty hops, some resin and wood. Very harsh hops on this, not blended or balanced well. Finishes absurdly astringent. I am a huge hophead as usually love nelson sauvin hops, but this recipe didn’t do it for me.

allmyvinyl (3345) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2013
2013 batch very disappointing compared with previous years. Should be all about the hops, instead this year they’ve brewed a strong English ale, with little hop character to speak of.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
mR_fr0g (3108) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
Bottle at home from Brewdog online shop. Burnt nelson hop aroma. Some caramel nose as well. Dark golden loose thin white head. Crisp dry finish. Flavour is nelson sauvin dominant burnt cluthplate. Very palete.

Nische (703) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Deep amber color with light creamy head. Malty, grassy and spicy aroma. Light sweet taste with spicy flavour and finish in dry bitterness.

maekchu (2127) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Winey, yeasty, cherries, and deep caramel nose. Dark straw, small head. Harsh, rude hops in initial / scratchy sort of rye notes in mid / some weird prune and medicinal flavors in final. Medium-heavy body. Not as bad as it sounds, really. Not entirely pleasant, but drinkable.
