Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg. Batch 071!
Pours amber colored with creamy off-white head. Smells slight fruity, with some peaches and pine woods. Starts very fruity and floral, with peach, orange and apricot. Slight pine woods and caramel in the background. Middle part has sweet fruits, paired with some resin and caramel. Goes into a hoppy-fruity finish with lots of orange, grapefruit and apricot. Very interesting hop!

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a nice orange colour with a lasting off white head. Aromas full of citrus, peach and tangerine. Stone fruit coming through in the taste. Loads of fruit in this one. I don't mind my ipas sweet so this one goes down nicely. Nice hop resinous too ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light haze on this amber beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate - silky with a little fine carbonation. Interesting hop! Sweet pine with mildly bitter apricot - peach. A little crystallised tangerine fruit underneath. Whispers of hop skunk and estery banana. Tasty!

mzaar (2844) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
Orangegrumlig öl med stort vitt skum som snart lägger sig. Fruktiga och blommiga dofter. Stram beska, fast lite för stram kanske. Smak av exotiska frukter, karamell och röda bär. En på det stora hela bra IPA.

NordicV (1959) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl med flyktigt vitt skum. Doft av ljust knäckebröd och en lätt parfymig, blommig humledoft. Även smaken är blommig med inslag av frukt- och maltsötma, lätt tvålig munkänsla.
