jkwood04 (3785) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2014
500ml bottle in a glass. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops, some pale malts, light spices, light wheat, and some hints of grains. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Davros (1866) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows sweet grainy and hay-like malt, some soft Belgian phenols and sweet confectionery notes. A little subtle. More sweet hay notes as a flavour. Some spicy and floral hops as well as a little honey. An assertive bitterness round things out. Carbonation is much too high.

mile (2874) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - faint wheat and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and light fruitiness with faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - faint wheat and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Nice hoppy aroma. For "IPA" flavor could really use more bitterness. Nice head though.

TBone (12425) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 29, 2014
Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Clear orange color, good white head, lace. Tropical fruits, gooseberry bushes, citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity, a good amount of grapefruits, lime. Kind of woody, even smokey (?) touch in the finish. Hop oriented IPA.

hawthorne00 (2363) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle, thought about gushing. Lots of sediment left in the bottle, but pours clear pale amber with a large white head. Aroma of bitter oranges, grapefruit, pine, grass, light dough. A touch grapey too. Creamy textured, moderate carbonation. Nice hops with the oranges seeming quite Belgian, moderately sweet hayish pale malt, but a distracting cheese rind note doesn’t fit for me but bothers me less after a while. Dry finish with lingering oranges is bitter but less so than expected.

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid golden with frothy, well-retained white head. Nose is yeasty, candi sugary malt, earthy, hoppy. Tastes very earthy, somewhat funky, with a dry hop flavor similar to the La Chouffe Houbllon. This is a true Belgian IPA, and it strikes me that in a side by side pairing with just about any American "Belgian IPA", this one would fly the Belgian characteristic flag much higher. Finishes complex, hoppy, dry, and funky.

laidbackbloke (58) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, Delirium Cafe, Brussels Feb 2014. Aroma: overshadowed by strong fruity notes: mango, orange, citrus etc. Appearance: gold, hazy, huge rocky head Taste: fruit, hops, resin Palate: medium body, not lingering, rather abrupt, yet bitter finish Overall: while not being a hop-head, I really appreciated this beer. What especially speaks to me is the fruitiness which has a truly enlivening effect.

At BBF. Golden-orange colour with white head. Hoppy, grape and pineapple aroma. Sweet, grape and pineapple taste. Medium body.
