Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2012
330ml bottle. Hazy orange color. Medium white head, stays. Dry hops, grapefruit, papery, malty aroma. Malty, hops, citrus, sweet in flavor. Bit over medium bitterness. Quite short melon in aftertaste.

pivnizub (8765) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle: Deep golden, bit unclear, large off-white and stable fluffy head, fruity flowery nose, pears and tangerines detectable; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; dry - but still a bit sweetish - fruity-hoppy finish. Not bad at all, but the fruitiness is really a bit strange…

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2012
330 ml bottle. Crystal clear sparkling amber colour. There’s a little yeast in the bottom of the bottle, so the second glass was slightly hazy. Small off-white head that clings to the glass. Bold fruity resiny hop aroma. Tropical fruit. Nice malty flavours. Lots of caramel, much enhanced by the resiny hops. Honey and apricots. Love the hop.

Theydon_Bois (8084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle share with JF on Southampton beer up - 09/09/12. Slightly hazy golden amber with a big frothy off-white head. Fruit forward nose dominated by ripe grapefruit and bitter orange. Caramel malt, pine, grapefruit, hops and bitter orange in the taste. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation leading to a bitter-sweet finish. My favourite from of this 4 bottle series of single hop beers from Brew Dog.

Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours deep amber with a large head. Very fruity aroma, with tangerine, peach, orange blossom and pineapple along with a lot of sweet-smelling crystal malt and cookie dough characters. Very similar flavours in terms of fruity hops, but some pine is added to the mix. Again, a fair bit of sweet malt too. Perhaps a little over-carbonated.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 12, 2012
A négyes összeállítás ezüstérmese nálam. Ez már igazán férfias IPA, ami rendkívül fenyőgyantás, borókás, gyógynövényes és keserű. A vége szinte harapja a nyelvünket, száraz és megalkuvás nélkül keserű. A színe és állaga is ennek eddig a legjobb és a szénsav is szépen elvan találva. Brutális egy darab!

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottled@Brewdog Camden, London. Deep orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet fruity notes along with caramel and crystal with some slight grapefruit. Flavour is quite similar in a rather bitter way. Quite mouthdrying as well.

Vaiz (3317) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is very fruity fresh hops, somewhat floral and slightly spicy. Flavor is bitter and very fruity. Almost suggesting sweetness. Very clean and a lovely hop variety.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 10, 2012
4x0,33l bottle, IPA Is Dead four-pack from Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, orange color with medium, white head. At the beginning a piney odor catch my nose, than fresh berries appers. The aroma is herbal, piney, berry and a light resin flavour also appears. Intensive, heavy bitter taste. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Piney, grassy finish. Very delicious one, the piney hoppy plays the main role from the beginning to the end. This hop is awesome, piney and berries, especially blueberry and mulberry.

Bottle from Voldby. Clear dark orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and tropical fruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 050812
