Leighton (18034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Red Session. Pours clear, rich gold with a frothy, off-white head. Good pissy hops on the nose, with faint bread, tangerine. Medium sweet flavour, nicely resinous, with notes of ripe citrus and dank edge. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Resinous at the close, with some nice grapefruit, light bitter pine, subtle sugary bread. Solid. Very drinkable, nicely balanced.

M_Sack (605) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Drunk in a flight with four IPA Is Dead beers. Aromas of Passionfruit, mango, apricot purée and earthy elements. Quite bitter with resinous first half, slightly earthy notes and good malt integration. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Biroholik (764) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
IBU : 75
Chmiele : Comet
Kolor : Dojrzała, soczysta pomarańcza. Mętne. <br//> Piana: Gęsta, twarda. Bieluteńka. Drobnooczkowa.
Zapach: Herbaciany. Ziołowy. Owocowy.
Smak: Dominuje smak pysznej białej herbaty. Piwo jest lekko ziołowe. Pojawiają się nuty przyprawowe. Goryczka ma również ziołowy charakter. Jest ona mocna, ale nie jest zalegająca. W smaku przeplata się cała masa przeróżnych ciekawych składników. W zależności od etapu picia piwa uaktywniają się kolejne a poprzednie zanikają. Nuty słodkie: Szczypta miodu i karmelu. Nuty kwaśne i półsłodkie : sugestie owoców cytrusowych - mandarynka, grejpfrut, pomarańcza. Nuty sosnowe i żywiczne także się przewijają
Wysycenie : Niskie
Podsumowanie:
Comet - strasznie fajny chmiel z którym spotykam się po raz pierwszy. Charakter tego chmielu jest mniej owocowy i cytrusowy, niż tych które do tej pory poznawałem. Dominują nuty ziołowe, leśne a nawet przyprawowe. Bardzo urzekł mnie ten smak herbaty lipton i białej herbaty. Ciekawa opcja. Doskonały balans podstawy słodowej z konkretną goryczką. Piwo warte polecenia!

Bottled (backlog). Ambery orange colour with a small creamy head. Aroma is zest, herbs, some avocado and mild sweet maltiness. Flavour is sweet malts, some herbs, mild avocado and melon as well as some zestiness. Smooth, and quite a "session" feeling over this one.

BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with thick white foam head.. Sweet tropical, fruity hops, sweet candy (chewing gum) on the nose.. Real sweet hops & a sherbet vibe upfront.. Going to melon & hoppy middle finishing with sticky fruity hops.. Lots going on.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel
