Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from La Atlántica bottle shop, Santiago de Compostela consumed at Frank (camper) at Camping As Cancelas a campsite in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain, Saturday 21st June 2014 Mid amber with a slight orange hue, mid sized white head atop. Aroma is fairly typically American style, crystal malt coming across a little too much and hops worryingly absent. A little sweet and chewy in the mouth the hops once again failing miserably to assert themselves, I really wouldn’t know if this was Citra or Fuggles (it is an unfiltered IPA with Citra) I have to say I am little disappointed. Actually I am getting a little perfume, but that could be me going a bit OTT with the Farenheit in a shop in town. Btw Loz thinks its nice and quite hoppy, clearly we are at odds here.

Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a near clear pale orange amber with a white head that lasts and laces. Aroma has a note of grapefruit, dank grass and marijuana with underlying sweet grains. Flavor has more grapefruit up front with a dank pine note that comes out in the finish.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Musty nose, slightly dank, faint citrus aspects.   As it warms it gets a little sweaty.   Soft sweet citrus aspects up front, pale mustiness, a touch sweaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dank sweaty finish.   While a touch sweeter than the FF variety, the sweat aspect detracts a bit.   Not bright at all, but thankfully not overly bitter either.   Thanks Kevin!

DrSilverworm (6022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to Casey. Poured into my IPA glass. Half hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Good mountains of lace. Nice citrusy lightly piney nose. Kind of spicy in the taste. Lightly resiny. Moderate bitterness. Medium to bigger body. Good smooth lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Solid IPA, great aroma. Kind of an unnecessary bite in the finish, though. The fascinating citra hop really carries this.

Horizontal throw down between siblings: Dark Horse Artic Dekoorc Eert (Citra), F.F. Dekoorc Eert (Falconer’s Flight), Edacsac Dekoorc Eert (Cascade)... and Crooked Tree are a base reference (and re-rate):

Appearance Served in Duval snifters: As expected all the same with a golden hue, clean, fading frothy head, spotty lace. FF seemed to have slightly better head retention, and the CT best head retention of all (All four get a 3)

Aroma: Artic has moderate tropical character with some light catty dank notes, biscuity and yeast esters. The most forceful of the aromas but the dankness is what puts it behind the Cascade driven Edacsac (7). FF has juicy fruit gum note along with some herbal overtones, bready and slightly peppery. Sort of weak nose and nondescript (6). Edacsac has moderate citric overtones with grassy notes along with displaying more pale grains than the other two. (8) Crooked Tree has more straightforward bitter with a hint of citrus and tropical notes along with a hint of metallic vapours. (7)

Taste: Artic is oniony and alpha acid driven with some mango, peach and grains of paradise. (6) FF is twangy pear and apple like fruit notes with a lovely grassy and herbal center. Get a bit more malty notes with the FF than the Artic. (7) Edacsac is grapefruit rind, dragonfruit and moderate pepper with a slight metallic earthy finish. (8) The CT is more like the Edacsac than the other two, PNW citrus, some white pepper, garlic and onion is there too but much less than the Citra hopped. (7)

Palate: The differences are slight with the finishes being the only noticeable thing, Has mentioned above the Cascade Edacsac is slightly metallic (3), the Citra Artic is slightly astringent and more spicy (3), the Falconer’s Flight FF is cleaner and dryer (4) and the base Crooked Tree is quite metallic and even minerally (3).

Overall Interesting but as I expected I like the Edacsac the most, more balance profile and I liked the FF the least with a muddled hop profile... just like when I have used these hops when I homebrewed. I unlike most am not a fanboi of single hopped Citra beers and this reinforced that. (Artic 13, FF 11, Edacsac 14, CT 13)
