This has the WOW factor for me - glorious sweet concentrated peachy flavour with great lick of bitterness afterwards - very low malt impact which suits me - soooo easy to smash down it’s dangerous - if the aroma was more prominent I’d mark it even higher - my favourite of the single hop release. Bloody fantastic. Like this? Try Garage Project Angry Peaches.

Hm, har lite svårt att bestämma mig om denna. Den har lite skum bismak men totalt hyfsat trevlig. Lite av en dubbelnatur.

ALLOVATE (2591) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2015
Bit over the consume-by, but what the heck!
Pastel orange and slightly misted with a foamy, rocky white head. Rich, resinous and fruity, clean hops on the nose that are seemingly drenched in grapefruit concentrate, peach and apricots. The palate emulates the aroma displaying a bitter, sharp grapefruit base lifted by notes of pale stonefruit, tangerine and sweet cantaloupe. Carbonation is low. There is a subtle minty note late. Quite light in body with not much to say of malt flavour. This is solid fruit juice pale ale. Very tangy, almost tart in the finish. I love this one. This is a fun beer to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Sessionable stuff despite the strength!! (33cL, BB 17/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours orange-gold, single finger white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, light malts, pineapple, melon. Taste of light grainy malts, then orange, lemon and pinapple with some melon. Very nice.

martjoobolut (1458) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
0,33L bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, fruits, and tangerines. Flavor follows the nose. Body is somewhat watery. Overall: good. It reminds me mandarina hops, which is one of my favorites.

330ml bottle (?)
Sweet sticky aroma. Even the top pour was cloudy, but this should not be a cloudy beer. Actually has quitean american aroma. Rough taste,so freaking soapy. Ugh, soapy finish. Nope.

Saeglopur (952) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 18, 2015
330 ml bottle, bb 17/3/15, shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Bright orange, hazy body, with a small, creamy, off white head.
Aroma of glue, but not in an unpleasant way, also apricot, citrus, resin, mild grapefruit, some stone fruits, peeled orange, sweet malts.
Tastes of sweet malts, like candy, citrus, orange, some resin, some pine, alcohol.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, fruity, sweet malty.

Although past the best before date, still very fresh, fruity and pleasant. Drinks very easy, ABV is well hidden. This must have been great fresh!

bottle at home shared with Saeglopur. orange, quite hazy / light cloudy color. small off-white head. smells grass, pines, some sweetness, mango, lightly resin, orange. overall quite nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, quite sweet, melon, honey, orange, peach, light astringent, light alcoholic, pines. light sweet / light fruity bitter finish. quite good, a bit on the sweet side, unfortunatly the bottle was over the BB-date, so not so fresh anymore. I am sure this would be great fresh.

nihtila (1600) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
20.4.2014. Clear pale colour. Aroma is fruity, has pine but also some almost metallic, caramel. Taste is sweetish, resinous, piny, grapefruity. Longish finish is bitter with pine and some tangerish or sth I cannot describe, maybe characteristic for Comet? At least the sweet resin seems to be. Tasting with Kohatu, they have different characteristics and Im not sure if I like this that much.
