kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Smells hops from far. Hazy deep orange or very light brown liquid with nice white head. Taste is crisp and hoppy. Quite bitter and dry. Even thou this is not my favorite beer style I find this good, but I must say that I’m not over thrilled.

Absolutely loved this one at TBF ’11. Very strong on hops, bitter, grapefruit notes. Only 4,5% abv.. I’d take this over pilsener all day, every day if i could.

Hazy dark orange color. Fantastic smell, fruits, summer/tropical fruits and hops. Lovely hoppy taste with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Little bit watery. Nice body, nice carbo, vertainly for a 4.5 ABV.

Koelschtrinker (16316) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Hopfiger Geruch, unverkennbar nach amerikanischem Hopfen, daneben leicht holzig. Hopfig-herber Antrunk in vollmundigem Zusammenhalt, mittelintensiv, angenehm aromatisch. Das Bier steigert sich zum Mittelteil leicht, die Hopfigkeit nimmt hierbei ab und macht einer getreidigen Malzigkeit platz, die Ihrerseits auf selber Höhe mit der dumpfen Herbe steht. Im Abgang Dumpf herb, der Hopfen ist in den Hintergrund gerückt, eine leichte Bitternote scheint nebensächlich. Deutlich grasig (dunkel). Der amerikanische Hopfen fällt zwar auf, jedoch weniger als gedacht. 10/10/10/11/10/10 Stark hopfiger, in Teilen brennender Geruch mit aromatischer Pfirsichnote. Wässriger Antrunk, in dem die Hopfenaromen nicht übermäßig stark zum Zug kommen. Im weiteren Verlauf wenig grasig-bitter, etwas langweilig. Schnell abflachend. 11/8/7/8//7

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large, frothy white head. Lots of sweet and sour tones come through. Sour grapefruit and sweet pineapple are present with the addition of dried fruits - mainly apricot. The taste comes through with very strong grapefruit. Leaves a lingering sourness. Very pleasant beer

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2011 Bottle shared with Elena and Gloria in Amsterdam. Pours lightly hazy, rich, red-gold with a strong, white head. Hops on the nose, grapefruit, pineapple, some honey. Pretty sweet flavor, lots of hop character, crispy toast malts, more grapefruit, pineapple, pine tree. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean, semi-sticky hop finish, mild caramel, pine and citrus rind linger. Great beer, smooth drinker. (3.9) Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting, October 2011, thanks to Rene. Spicy nose, orange, faint anise. Medium sweet flavor, good balance, plenty of citrus, some citrus pith, bubblegum. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Clean finish, some sugar, citrus, faint grass and pith, melon big time, some more bubblegum. (3.9)

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - APR 20, 2011
The beer in the glass is bronze-coloredr, something like a dark IPA. The smell directly revealed of one of my favorite hops: Amarillo. It starts very recent, citrusy and spicy bitter hoppy, it also tastes wonderfully after Amarillo. The center part is sligthly dry, the finish is pungent hoppy, very bitter. To finish it gets a little shallow and mild, it remains a pleasant bitterness and Amarillo hops come through still very good.

Martinus (4362) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2011
Light amber, firm, rather well lasting, off-white foam head consisting of fine small bubles. Fruity aroma. Grapefruit, grape, some dried apricot. Fragrant lime (linde) blossom (lindebloesem). All the best of the amarillo hops. Full taste. Some hop bitterness. Malt sweetness. Again the grapefruit, together with candied orange peel. No sence of lack of alcohol, even though it has a relatively low ABV. Dry lingering aftertaste, astringent, the bitterness of the hops comes through in full strenght after a while. Really refreshing and nice beer. (from 33cL bottle)
