beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2012
Bright orange colour with big white head. Mild hop aroma. Hop resin mouthfeel with mild hop flavour, I say mild as Luke normally loves hops, so this is very tame for him.

ALLOVATE (2353) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle; into a snifter. Fleeting white cap atop an effervescent, sparkling medium gold body. First whiff is clean cut, resinous, tropical fruit punch hops with an edge of cotton candy and pear drops. Second whiff and there on in it offers up a medicinal, plastic and rubbery phenolic note that is tarnishing. Doughy in the mouth with a lot of ripe tropical adding a debting sweetness to it. Light bodied but oddly filling in the stomach. The alcohol is ’hot’, chemical and there is a rubbery phenolic linger. Dominant honeydew, pineapple and passionfruit notes just continue to sweeten as it warms. Awkward lasting bitterness adds to the furore; just too rough for enjoyment. Had high hopes but they were quashed quickly. Too many jagged edges to this one! (50cL, BB 05/12/12, Freo Doctor, Fremantle)

marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from Corti Brothers, Sacramento. Pours yellow with a fluffy off-white head and a banana and toffee aroma. There is a hearty, slightly harsh pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon and citrus hops, sweet grainy and cracker malts, and some floral hops. T - Starts off with grainy and cracker malts with some lemon and citrus hops and a bit of bitterness. Through the middle, some pine and floral come through with some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of bready and grainy malts with some lemon, citrus, and piney hops and some bitterness and lager esters. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a grainy and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice imperial pilsner with good overall malt and hop balance.

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 28, 2012
A strange beer this, promise of a big hoppy pils descends into burning alcohol, phenolic, band aids with an unpleasant bitter after taste. Not sure if my 500ml bottle is off or what

Ernest (6159) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of diesel fuel, plastic, pears. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Phew. They tried to cover up the nasty fusels and phenols with a lot of hops, but the flaws still shine through! Horrible aftertaste. Strike three from Epic, the worst one I’ve had yet.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bomber from Pangaea. Pours gold with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is mildly bready with citrus and grass. Med body. Flavor is fairly bready with a lot of noble hop spice. It’s pretty happy. Definitely bitter, and drinks nicely.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with white head that doesn’t really last. Smells of marshmallow, citrusy hops. Light on the palate with a big hoppiness that seems oddly out of place. Fairly bitter but so very light in body. Burns a little. An interesting attempt.

Bendrixian (1071) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
clear colour, golden colour. aromas are tropical fruit, some hoppy note, very nice considering it’s a pils. somewhat nutty and malted. big bitter notes, very boozy burn, dry hopped bitterness flavour, which i find weird. finishes slightly malted. it is almost salty!. strange but interesting.

bmeup (509) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2012
Clear golden colour and tight white head. Grassy, citrus and sweet berry aromas. Some grain and herbal character. Quite bitter, heavy and full bodied with a boozy lengthy finish.
