Przylus (50) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Z butelki wyczuwalny grejpfrut. Po przelaniu do szlanki, uderzenie żółtego, bliżej nieokreślonego, soczystego owocu tropikalnego oraz dobrej herbaty (białej lub zielonej jaśminowej). Po ogrzaniu wyczuwalne aromaty pitnego miodu oraz drzewne. Barwa złot, lekko mętne. Piana niska, ale drobna i długa. W smaku głównie cukierki prawoślazowe albo herbaciane. Goryczka niska, prawie niewyczuwalna.

Vighals (1394) - Sřrumsand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Brun klar med hřyt tykt beige skum. Havre og lukt av sydhavsfrukter. Litt lett men bitterheten kommer ettervert. Medium kullsyre

visionthing (2977) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Storo. Pours slightly hazy golden to amber, with an off-white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with mild citrus notes and hints of red berries, pine and caramel. Medium sweet with balanced hoppy flavours and mild caramel with a fairly bitter finish. Medium+ body with fairly average carbonation. Easy drinking and quite refreshing IPA.

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-hued straw yellow body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is grass, citric peel, grapefruit, pine, red fruits and hints of bread, melon and herbs. Taste is pine, spruce, grass, grapefruit, red fruits and hints of wet grass, herbs and mild caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a lovely, balanced and refreshing IPA from the latest of these boxed set series; I like it a lot.

Zekada (266) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma has some grapefruit, citrus and hops. Pours deep orange with a medium white head. Taste is a bit bland, with a deep after taste of hops. Palate is thin and leaves more to wish. Overall a beer which is boring taste-wise. It really has more aroma than taste.

Tiszta borostyán.Fanyar édeskés, szénsavas, közepesen keser?. Illata mandarinos. Kicsit sok nekem az édesség. Különben jól kiegyensúlyozott. Jó.

lobs_ols (155) - LATVIA - NOV 14, 2014
Transparent amber, strong white head. Refreshing fruitiness on the nose. Bittersweet with a lasting bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit and... pine? Is that pine? Am I mad? Yes, but still. Slightly watery bitter finish. Nice, and interesting to experience a new hop, but I doubt I’ll seek this out in the future.

zenkis (598) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours pale amber to with orange tones, beige medium froth top stays as thin layer enough long leaving nice spotty lasing. Aroma- dominant fruity, sweet apricots, kind of tropical fruits and minimal greipfruity bitter, caramel malts but.. to me there is no hoppiness. It just not there. And by flavor it is also far from IPA in my oppinion- pure caramel-amber ale, in balance between malts//hops more towars caramel, malt sweetness with light hoppy sweet fruityness. Ladies brew with 7.2%. Pleasant, sweet with tiny to light bitter, nice rich mouthfeel, but lacks hoppiness. Short aftertaste with some hints of sour-sweet maltiness/simple sugars. Interesting but dissapointed me cause was looking for IPA.
