Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2012
330 ml bottle. A clear orange golden body with a decent off-white head. Very nice aroma mainly of citric fruity with some caramel malt. Not particular strong in the nose, but pleasant. Flavor is sweet and fruity with moderate bitterness. Medium body and an aftertaste where the bitterness becomes a bit more pronounced. Maybe not the best IPA in this series, but a very pleasant and balanced session beer anyway.

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
Orange öl med vitt skum. Melon, röda bär och blommighet i aromen. En fräsch sötma, med grapebeska, i smaken. Ananas och citrus hittas där. En trevlig ipa.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Golden pour with a middling off white head. Fragrant grassy hop and tropical fruits were present in the nose. Sweet malts mingled with further fruits and grassy/straw hop notes. Decent but probably not podium material.

VsXsV (2235) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of red berries, tangerine, light hay/vegetal, biscuit, tropical fruit and light mint. Taste is dry to very light sweet and medium bitter with tangerine and light biscuit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite all right.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It pours a thin, off-white head over a clear, golden body. The aroma is a bit weak I think, with citrus fruit dominating. Some caramel maltyness and biscuits. More rounded in the flavor too, soft carbonation, full body. Citrus peel, pineapple notes and pale malts in the flavor, some caramel. Lasting bitternes in the swallow. A pleasant and well tasting beer, but a bit boring. 121017

jookos (2059) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Amber, clear. Nose has the usual clean caramel, malts. Hop-wise a bit more on the grassy side. I actually found it a bit buttery, which, combined with the hoppy notes, made me think of coconuts and overripe mango. As always, a nice brew but the worst of these ipa is deads.

Birra fantastica, luppolo interessante! Odore e sapore molto particolari, decisamente di mio gradimento!
