MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2011
(bottle, 75cl) Cloudy, orange-amber colour with a huge and slightly off-white foamy head. Intensively fruity, piney and spicy hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, oranges, pineapples and juniper/gin, backed by a hearty and mildly sweet malt-character. Sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied with an almost crisp carbonation. Initially very fruity hoppy and rounded malty taste with orange zests and rising piney and herbal spicy notes, reminding me of juniper-berries and laurel; mildly bitter and sweet malty finish with very long lasting and assertive aftertaste. Very complex and tasty IIPA. 18.V.11

Vignale (3369) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2011
Massor av skum som sprutar ur flaskan. Mycket stickig kolsyra. Annars stor C-humle doft och bra balans på malten. En stabil D-IPA.

Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Very high carbonation! Pours light murky orange-amber with a giant, frothy, off-white head. Nice aroma with good fruit. Grapefruit, peach, light winegum, mildly vinious, sweet fat doughy malts. High spritzy carbonation, creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet hops resins, grapefruit, pine, apricot. Fairly warming vinious. Rather mild in bitterness actually. Okay, but "Sorachi" is again a bit lost on me.

JorisPPattyn (9510) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2011
Continuous gushing stream of off-white foam over overcarbonated dirty amber beer with a mossy sheen. Yeast all in suspension. Aromatic C-hops, jumping out of the bottle a mile around; lunaria, grapefruit, green sultanas and superb hops’ aroma; dry hopbales in Hessian sacks. Sharp, lively malts with green, fresh C-hops, citrus, grapefruit, lytchee & mint. Not balanced, but excellent flavour to my taste. Suggestion at malt sweetness backthroat. Medium bodied, overcarbonated, head drying out faster than turning into beer. I love the beer, but... the bottle conditioning is utterly out of control. Lost nearly a third of the bottle.

Plovmand (7879) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours bit hazy deep golden with a huge fluffy off white head. The aroma is fruity and floral hoppy with notes of citrus, grape fruit, pine and peaches. Some sweetness from the caramel malt. The flavour is bready and very bitter hoppy. The chinook bitterness kicks in and the simcoe adds some floral and peachy notes. Pine, citrus and grass as well. Quite hoppy brew indeed.

Bottle shared my yesper at Papsø tasting, thanks. It pours a hazy golden with a white head. It has a fresh and hoppy aroma with notes of peach, citrus and pine. Flavour is very bitter with loads of peach, pine, grass and citrus. Its very foamy with a bitter end.
