fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
2014-02-04, bottle from Pibar, Lausanne, 6-5-6-2-11=30
bottled Aug 23rd 2013, hence a bit old

Light amber color, bright and clean, with generous frothy head. The aroma is hoppy, continental, a bit grassy and nutty, also lightly funky. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; there was probably some extra refermentation in the bottle; malt flavor, some caramel, and a strong wood bitterness, a bit tannic; the hops seem old.
Average beer.

2014-01-22, bottle at På Besök, Malmö, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Deep blond color. The aroma is a bit stale, also hoppy and fruity, maybe they didn’t pour yet today. The flavor is very spicy, with light residual sugars, strong bitterness, late hop resins and some citrusy/orange bitterness.
Good.

ippopotamo36 (367) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 2, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased at the Hoppy imp. in Greece and consumed in Kosovo. Bottle is produced 21/08/2013 (15 months old). Pours a reddish amber colour, oily texture, cloudy and with a huge and compact off-white head. Nose: very mild (the age?) feel of citrusy hops, grapefruit basically, a hint of honey. Mouth: not much to report (sadly), only some residual bitterness. It stays decent but I assume it was far better when bottled. My rating refers to this beer 15 months old then.

Tap@haket. Orange hazy. Somewhat yeasty messy nose. Stone fruits, ripe oranges. Med full bodied. De molen- like rawness, sweet stone fruits. Malts. Very flavourful, but just chaotic. Sweet malty fruity ipa. Too sweet for my liking.

A really nice IPA as De Molen usually does. Dry and bitter ending. Full bodied.

Svesse (6297) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
(Bottle, Jemten, Duved, Sweden, 15 Aug 2014) Hazy amber colour with big, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, orange peel, dried apricots and floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, dried apricots, orange peel and slightly resinous hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Well made and tasty IPA. Nice one.

kraddel (3630) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle at gainsbar . Pours clear amberblonde . huge and fluffy white head . Smell is - for the first time ever - soapy in a good way . Fruity , summer-ish . Taste is bitter , grainy , way less fruity than the scent gives away , yet it has a nice , perfumy touch ( again , in a good way ) . Nice , balanced ipa . Just misses that little extra something ...
