solidfunk (4326) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours clear blond. Very bitter. There’s not much here besides bitterness though. Hops profile doesn’t have a lot of body other than the bitter. Palate is pretty simple. Not bad.

3fourths (8219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2014
From bottle at Brasserie de la Senne, Brussels. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head.
Straight up American hops in the nose show a strong grapefruit and pine resin core with minor apricot and orange accents. Malt is pale and cara, lightly toasty, somewhat bready. Fine natural carbonation with soft malt, that’s the highlight. Medium body, semi-sweet, finish is appropriately bitter and a little resinous. It’s certainly well-made, but the ingredients limit the appeal. Yvan’s noble-hopped beers are some of the best in the world, he doesn’t need to be making the prototypical western resin/grapefruit IPA.

mile (3093) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty – faintly wheaty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness with some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty – faintly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Nicely hopped Belgian ale. Bit too sweet/too much caramel for me. In the finish bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy.
