Migmar (252) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Copper brown, some sticky foam. Citrus, spruce, grass. Pretty heavy hoppy bitterness. It’s a strong APA for sure.

gegwilson (1801) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Cask at the Beamish beer festival. An amber ale with a white head. Lots of tropical flavours, especially pineapple. The finish is dry and bitter with pine. Very nice.

Turboninja (168) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bit bitter smell with fruits. Bronze yellow color with light white head. Stony taste, organic fruitiness. Some bitterness with some hops. Medium taste spectrum and hoppy, medium aftertaste. Adequate, medium carbonation.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in July 2013 - Orangey Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and grassy hops. Very Fruity; grapefruit citrus and tropical fruits. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Assertive hop bite. Quite bitter. Bitter hoppy citrus fruity throughout balanced by sweet malts. Long dry bitter finish. Nice APA!

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Huge zesty/tang both on the nose and on the tongue. Fruity, nutty then this sherbet dib-dabs flavour kicks in. Great body, excellent beer.

Cask @Beer Hunters
Clear amber color, good creamy white head. Goodm piney resiny aroma. Medium-bodied. Lots of pine needles and resin in the flavor. Decent malt profile too. Quite aggressive hoppyness.

Very light pale ale (almost like a lager) that gives a burst of aromatic hops in the mouth but is in no way over powering. A strong beer that goes down easy - your have been warned! Rated by BrewTom

Not crazy about this one. Like a couple of other Dark Star IPAs I’ve tried it comes out a bit thin and sweet with tastes of honey rather like Belgian IPAs and doesn’t deliver the sharp bitterness I’d expect from the ops - particularly Citra. They’ve done better.

Idiosynkrasie (4589) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, mioderately lacing, white head. Minimally piney and slightly floral hoppy aroma, a touch of gooseberry, caramel malty background. Taste is dry hoppy, some gooseberry, a strawy-spicy-peppery touch.
