Knockout for sure. My seasonal allergies are kicking my ass and I can still get an awesome dank tropical hop aroma. Looks perfect golden body with a creamy head. The palate is just wicked, taste aside for a minute, creamy head in to the medium body and the perfect amount of dryness. Flavor is pineapple, orange, other citrus galore. With a pleasant bitterness that lingers. I’ll admit I shared none of this and regret nothing.

Speko (209) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Can 0,5 thanks to Slacker. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Flowers, grape, citrus, mild pine, a bit dusty, hops and some sweetness from the malts. Full body and average carbonation. Excellent beer.

SlackerMads (2824) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Can, no date. Hazy golden, medium sized off white head with good retention. Citrus, minerals, light cheese and flowers in the nose. Flavour follows. Not that bright, but mellow and filling. White bread, cheese, citrus, sugar, mild alcohol. Medium body, fine balance between sweet and bitter. No unpleasantries except for cheesy hops, but overall not that exiting.

Alengrin (4453) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2016
From a 50 cl can at Uncle Babe’s in Ghent, shared with Ster. Frothy, thick, egg-white, moussy head, cloudy straw blonde colour with peachy hue. Fragrant New World hops bouquet of mushy mango, passion fruit, kiwi, yellow grapefruit, white bread, strawberry, pine resin, wormwood, lime blossom. Soft fruity onset, mango, lychee and green banana hints, sourish plum or kiwi accent, pineapple touch, medium carbo, ’fluffy’ mouthfeel, sweetish malts supporting a mile-long, resinous, spicy, very citrusy and lightly piney hop bitterness, utterly aromatic and at the same time halting all malt and fruit sweetness; alcohol remains fairly well hidden. Very tasty DIPA, worth the hype.

16 oz can, poured. Huge thanks to Tcon for the can. This is one of those beers that I didn’t think I would run into without putting in a serious effort to do so. Canning date was cut off by the can shape, but I know it’s fresh. Canned on the 6th of one of the months this year. Hop heavy aroma, and inviting for sure. Flavor is super juicy, tangerine, super citrus, almost tart, with a juicy, massive citrus finish. This is what an imperial IPA should be. Could drink this all day, which is easy to say after just one. Amazing.

wlajwl (5677) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Aroma is a mix of strong piney hops, fruit/citrus and spicy. The flavor is a mix of grapefruit, malts, spices and slight sourness/bitterness in the finish.

Swaroga (2070) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Beautiful 50cl can. Batch 3/15/16. Beer is hazy orange with huge, white head. First aroma strike from can is fresh freaking hops. Like when you open a fresh bag of US hops. Quite overwhelming hops have notes of typical tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, watermelon, passion fruit, pomelo plus some resin. On the malt side the aroma is cupcake and some cheese cake but those are completely dominated by hop notes. The beer is creamy, medium thick body with very delicate carbonation. Taste is off balance with huge bitter hop bite that lasts a while. Still it has a juicy malt background with medium sweetness. The hop bite is resinous and if yo bit through a pomelo peel. There is some little alcohol but way back. The resinous/peel/alcohol bitterness is a bit tiring after a while. Extra points for an amazing hop aroma and great design.
