DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 330ml. Burnished bronze with a slender white foam. Unusual and enticing aroma like Fruit Salad chews, shiny red apple, grenadine syrup and hop pollen. Flavour floral and stewed with hints of peach, pine, papaya and fizzing pineapple moving into a mellow smoked husk finish. Smoked almond linger. Decent. Good malts. Reminds me of a 3.8% Mallinsons single hop YPA. But not as good.

HampshirePhil (138) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
330 ml bottle - Darkish orange appearance with little to no head upon pouring. Very little carbonation upon drinking either. Strong hop aromas which are replicated precisely on the tongue. Very bitter aftertaste.

jamestulloch (1316) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle from Sourced Market. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. No carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of metal and orange. Flavour of blood orange, rust and sour pear. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Lacking in punchy flavour and drinkability. Not great.

abemorsten (2682) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Small bottle kindly preserved by the RBHD tasting party on Fridtjoffen. Clear nut golden body with a white, short lived rim. Caramel and over-ripe banana on the nose. Taste is sweet and salty with fruity hints. Full bodied.

Sigmund (5007) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. LThe aroma has loads of caramel and hints of diacetyl and dust, nothing IPAish about it at all. The flavour is very sweet and dull, some caramel. No IPA, and not a good beer regardless of style.

Holmen1 (2337) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Fra flaske på RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen mai-14: kort filmskum, klar ravgylden. Mye aroma av karamell, nesten som en lett barleywine. Lett vinøs, sherryaktig smak som minner om krokanis.Ingen ipa etter min oppfatning av stilen, men har ingen problemer med å drikke glasset til bunns.
