DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
£2 bottle. Ribbed plastic beaker in a Travelodge. Aroma of vomited Southern Comfort. Dark orange gold thickly capped with white mousse. Bile and orange, dense tinned peachy iced tea, incongruously bitter fake US flavour with a waft of turmeric powder. No thanks- need a Brew By Numbers to take the taste away.

Golden honey appearance. Strange mix of fruity and creamy aroma. Quite bitter with a raspy flavour. Quite tangy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Alla spina. Nebuloso color giallo paglierino con un soffice cappello di schiuma biancastra molto persistente. Birra fresca, profumata, fruttata e luppolata, dal gusto mediamente amaro e con un bel finale persistente. Classico esempio di APA, setosa nella struttura e dall’effervescenza gentile.

rosenbergh (7423) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Draught at the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Clear amber colour with a small white head. Floral and fruity hops, mild bitterness and mild herbs in the aroma. The flavour is darkish hops, moderate bitterness and dark malt. Not so fresh. Very soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HKdIPA (300) - HONG KONG - AUG 14, 2014
Tap from Taps Beer Bar in KL during layover. Translucent - almost opaque - orange amber pour. Frothy head. Aroma is sweet fruit and hops. Taste is sweet and fruity hops with a good amount of bitterness and a tiny bit of sour/funk. Crisp finish. Quite drinkable.
