TEJA (1300) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Big white head with strange big bubbles that makes it almost lika deturgent! Light amber color and a bit opaque. Nice aroma from tangerines. Fine malt base with some caramell but only enough to balance the bitterness and to make it enoyable.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Clear golden/orange, strong grassy/piney/resiney hop aroma, solid bitterness, citrus/grapefruit/pine flavours. Very nice.

Clear amber beer with a decent pale cream coloured head. Palate is semi soft and semi dry. A little hop skunk and bitter pine and then great fruits. Mango and fruit salad sweets - slightly sharp. Smooth finish with a mellow bitter linger. This is the flavour I heard described the first time I heard about Galaxy hops - but none of the beers really delivered it until now. Nice one Brewdog!

Second time I tried this one and its actually a lot better than I remember. Pours a dark copper orange. Very smooth fruity aroma. Very balanced hoppiness. Good beer.

Hansen (6653) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2013
Light amber coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Hoppy aroma, notes of citrus and herbs, faint metallic notes. Flavor starts sweet, finish heavy bitter. Creamy, dry texture and soft carbonation.

mzaar (1614) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Mycket fruktiga dofter i den här ölen: ananas, persika och citrus. Samt tallbar. Rejäl beska möter gommen, mycket grape. Också ananas och blommighet. Men beskan är lite solo här, det finns inte så mycket utrymme för annat.

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl med tjockt gulvitt skum. Doftar citrus, mest lime, exotiska frukter och viss maltighet. Beskan är väldigt komplex för att bara vare en humlesort. Citrus, persika, blommighet, karamell och lite tallbarr i smaken.

lord_totenkopf (310) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 8, 2012
[Notes got mixed somewhere so this one is from memory.] Golden yellow liquid. Aroma is strong with hops and pines, some hidden fruitness. Taste is bitter and dry. Nothing surprising, a well made single hop IPA.
