0.33L bottle, snifter. Pours deep orange/amber with great, creamy head, but is also heavily hazy and unclear. Aroma is very fresh, mostly grapefruit, some lemon peels, mandarines, grapes (probably from NS), peaches and slightly flowery. Contrary to aroma, there is some maltiness in flavour, but not too much, its rather domintated by bitterness. Finish is quite long and definitely hoppy. Lightly carbonated and medium-bodied, great example of IPA, but not too session.

Pours a clear deep golden with a creamy and semi-fluffy head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with caramel and pale malts. Taste is bitter with a slight herbal touch. Body and co2 is medium.

2014-07-02. Hazy bright orange body small white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, oranges, orange peel, tangerines. 7++ Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, lovely orange hoppy citrus. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Fantastic. Likely benefited from being the hoppiest thing we have had in a while, but also good on it’s own merits! Bottle from Alesela

Zoret (113) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 17, 2014
Aromes fruitats i resinosos, també amargs i citrics com pell de taronja. En boca trobo aspectes similars amb un final molt amarg/resinos que no em desagrada. tot el contrari!

ClubGonzo (4163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange body with small white head. Nose is a complex herbal mix of grass, peppery herbs, nettles, spinach, mint, hints of red berries and alcohol. Taste is red berries, mint, herbal grassy tones and hints of green pepper and hay. Medium body and carbonation. Not too impressive, but not bad either. However, it makes me wonder how come so many Brit IPAs come across as grassy-herbal instead of the regular fruity/piny IPAs in the American tradition? Like this one, for example: even though the hop bill is all New World, it still tastes pretty much as a noble-hopped version. So strange.

Keg at the hanging bat in Edinburgh. I asked for a taster to see if I wanted it, I said yes as soon as my tongue hit the beer. This thing is very balanced for a 6.8 percenter. I was expecting the usual resiny/bitter/syrupy IPA around this alcohol %. I was surprised. Medium pineapple fruity aromas give way to crisp hoppiness and bitterness that doesn’t overwhelm. Well made.

Finn (4331) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonpolet Tromsø Langnes. Lys aprikosfarget. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som holder seg bra. Litt lacing. God fruktaktig humlearoma. Plommer. Smaken er syrlig frukt. God men litt uvariert. Litt sedimenter igjen i flaska. Avslutter tørt.

Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white to light beige head. The aroma of hop pellets escaped the bottle immediately after cracking the bottle, and is reinforced when poured into the glass. Lemon peel and some pine cones, quite resiny, with some flowery hints and peaches. Not much maltyness in the aroma. The flavor is more on the malty side though, but far from malt dominated. Could perhaps be a tad more bitter to deal with the malty sweetness, but it’s far from bad. Citrus peel, pine cones and resins, some grass and peaches, notes of flowery perfume too. Lasting hop dominated finish, where it dries up a bit. Pleasant carbonation level, medium to full-bodied. Sure a nice one, a beer I could drink loads of. 140713
