laiti (5667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home
Aroma is somewhat heavy and sweet with malty tones, fruits and some pineapple juice. Also hints of glue and grain. Flavour has pineapple juice, berries, some heavy and sweet malt, gluey tones and hints of alcohol. Also some minerals. Too much alcohol and glue, but not bad still. Not the most typical APA – this is more heavy than others in this style.

tiong (3752) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
650ml bottle from Bierkompass

Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, caramel, grassy hops and fruits. Taste is juicy, stuffy and sweetish with loads of malts, caramel, grass and gooseberries. Finish is stuffy, crisp and malty with some grassy hoppiness and berries. A bit strange hop profile, and quite malt heavy for an APA.

Aroma is tropical fruit and orange with floral notes and some sweet toasted bread. Hazy deep golden with medium white head. Taste is sweet caramel notes upfront that fade into light tropical and floral hops mid-palate. Finish is lingering resinous bitter pine. Palate is medium with light carbonation noticeable. Overall this is a solid pale ale that tastes more like an IPA. Good balance between the sweet malts and the hoppiness.

Idiosynkrasie (3804) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
650ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Cleaned and engineered hoppy aroma has piney notes, some orange, mandarine, pineapple. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, bitter and piney hoppy, notes of pineapple, mandarine and orange; very soft palate. IPA-like in sterile Californian mode, technical sophistication eradicated any vitiation/contamination by natural processes left to to their own resources. The immaculacy of digital sounds is impressive and intriguing, but I still prefer the rude and pristine, analogue sound of vinyl.

650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small frothy head. Aroma of fresh hops, orange, freshly cut grass and citrus. Flavour of aggressive grassy bitterness, kiwi sweetness, floral notes, strong chewy citrus and orange. Medium bodied. Strong, dry, bitter finish. Very refreshing.

BuckeyeBoy (2709) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap at 30th street. Pours out a copper color topped with a small head. Nose is pine citrus and some cereal malts. Taste is more of the nice pine and grapefruit hops along with a solid malt bill to balance it out.
