oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2010
Cask@GBBF2010. Hazy orange colour, not much head. Aroma is pleasantly balanced hops, very fruity and wooden, along with some sweet maltyness. Flavour is fruity and floral hops along with some bready malts and caramel malts, biscuits as well as some slight grass in the finish. Pleasant and actually for once a refreshing IIPA.

GBBF. Clear amber beer - no real head. Light dry palate. Bitter peach and tea flavoured malt. Finishes dry. Not hating it but can’t get excited either. 3.0

Black Country Beano. Outbound train tasting! Light haze on this amber beer, big pale cream coloured head. Softish airy palate, dry. Somewhat spicy hops with lesser pine and marmalade. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle from QFC - Seattle (Ballard)
Hazy amber color, with creamy head. Mild manure aroma at first, followed by some malt and caramel. Lean mouthfeel, a bit oily, with good caramel flavor, but without vibe; strong hopping, carrying some chewy resin and not much fruitiness; long final.
Powerful but not much elegant.
