ACHops (1362) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2013
On tap @ Whisky Bar. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet. Pours medium golden with thin lingering head. Aroma is sweet citrus and fresh hops. Taste is clean crisp malt with a big juicy hoppy finish. Citrus, grapefruit, and pine notes in the hops. At 7.5%, one of the bigger single IPAs, and one of the best.

martjoobolut (3012) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle, bottled 11.02.2016 (from beergium). Pours amber with small whiteish head. The head stays for some moments. Aroma is sweet, caramel, pine, some fruits, alcohol. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel sugar, fruits, pine, citrus, malt. Finish is sweet with some pine bitterness. Covers alcohol rather well and drinkability is excellent for the ABV. Overall: good one - well balanced and easy to drink.

canary dog (743) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
The body on this one is not as complex as on other IPAs I like more. The finish has almost a touch of mint to it. An average GOOD IPA....but nothing terrific.

Zlotta (2199) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
0.355 l bottle at ’Food Lovers’ (Dortmund), best before June 2017. Sweetish, very fruity, resiny and slightly grassy aroma of orange, grapefruit, tangerine and some pine. A bit sweetish, slightly bitter, very fruity and a bit resiny taste of mango, orange, grapefruit and some pine, followed by a medium long, rather bitter, resiny and dry finish. Medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Very nice!
