MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 (35.5cl bottle) Almost clear, amber colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet malty and sourish fruity nose with a touch of dust and lemon-fruity hops. Moderately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a crispy mf. Soft malty base with light notes of licorice and a good dash of (grape-)fruity hops. Dry and moderately bitter and fruity finish. Surely a drinkable brew, but also almost a bit disappointing by FD standards (19.II.08).

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2009
355 ml bottle. Clear, golden orange body with a dense off-white head. Sweet and heavy hoppy/citrus + hay aroma. Flavor has a sharp, prompt bitterness, giving a dry feeling even realizing this is a quite sweet beer. Balanced but not much malt flavor here.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 12oz bottle from 2007. pours an off-white head with a clover honey color body. Smells of honey, pine and apricot. Tastes of pineapple, apricot, and honey. Nice bitter finish. All-around good IPA. 01/05/11 As a note, just drank one from the same brood and it was a malt bomb with a dog food finish...not very pleasing at all. Actually, just tried another quaff, and it wanted to come back on up on me the old musty malt being as in my face as it is. It’s going down the drain. Just wanted to let that be known, not going to change my original rating tho. This bottle was marked with 500 7FX.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured an orange amber with a soapy off white head and minimal carbonation. Head leaves bits of lace. Smells of Citrus and pine with a whiff of caramel. Taste has a nice malt that leans toward a caramel sweetness. Hop level seems pretty light for this style. Lemon and grapefruit are the dominant hops flavors. Finishes with a mild bitterness

Aroma is full of hops, mostly floral and some citrus. Flavor is hoppy, citrus, some malt and a taste of honey. Has a fairly bitter finish. not bad at all.
