GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 21, 2014
Grifo en L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Vaso Shaker. Color naranja profundo y apariencia nublada. Esponjosa espuma blanca y cremosa corona con bastante buena retención. Intensas notas de pino, resinas, fruta tropical –pomelo y piña- y aromas de maltas moderadamente tostadas. Sabores herbales, de granos dulces y picantes al primer sorbo que son barridos por agudos toques de piel cítrica y resinas. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Textura densa. El amargor lo inunda todo aunque las maltas – como sutiles trazos de galleta- afloran en el intermedio para frenarlo. Final seco y sensación reseca en el retrogusto. Buena cerveza aunque peligrosamente cerca de resultar desequilibrada. On-tap @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Shaker glass. Dark orange color, cloudy appearance. White foam & creamy crown showing fairly good retention. Intense pine, resinous, tropical fruit –grapefruit & pineapple- notes & mild toasted malt aromas. Herbal, sweet grain & spicy flavors at first sip are blown up by sharp citric zest & resinous touches. Medium body. Moderately high carbonation. Dense texture. Bitterness flows all over but malts –as subtle biscuit hues- arise in the middle to tie it. Dry finish & dried aftertaste. Nice beer but dangerously close of being unbalanced.

Beersiveknown (2979) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at home from Redmonds
mid hazy amber with thin white lacing. Pithy orange hops on nose, fairly prickly carbonation, big lupulin bitter hit, full bodied, slightly chalky and plenty of grapefruit pithiness. Punchy but more brash than balanced, like some of the less enjoyable kernels.

Jur (299) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014

mcberko (6439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours a clear golden / copper with a small white head. Nose is fruity, with light piney floral hops and biscuity notes. Flavour is very fruity, with piney and floral hops, biscuity notes, and light fruitiness. Finishes on a dry, astringent hoppiness. Very well-constructed. Enjoyable stuff.
