CacheManyHose (354) - HONG KONG - MAY 5, 2015
From Brewcraft, drank after TAP. Pours cloudy straw-copper with a massive, thick foamy head. Tonnes of spotty foamy legs. Smells of concentrated musty peach/lemon/lime hop - almost like a cleaning product or a tennis court - with some booze, bready malt sweetness, and hint of clove/pepper. (Sounds like that'd be terrible and overly big but it's not.) Tastes of lemon/lime, floral hop, ends on a sweet lightly spiced malty (like a sweet Pils, very German) note. Decent; somehow looks (even the label!) and tastes like a home brew.

HKdIPA (405) - HONG KONG - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Very hazy - off-puttingly so - peach gold pour with big big head. Aroma is German (but maybe because I know it's German) bready malts - like a pilsner - and some faint wet hop. Taste is a bit muddied - wet fruity hops with lots of bread/cereal malt. Has a bit of Pilsner-y crispness to it. Not that great but maybe not so fresh.

mkam (322) - POLAND - APR 20, 2015
From bottle. Pours clean golden with a white head. An average IPA, not very bad, but the hop aroma and taste could be stronger.

Beer4000 (4981) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2015
330 ml bottle sampled April 2014. Slightly cloudy orange body with a nice off-white head. Aroma is refreshing fruity with some berries like blackcurrant as well. A bit unusually combination in the nose, but not bad. Flavor is mild, sweetish malt, some fruit and berries, light bitterness. Medium body and average aftertaste. Nothing extreme, not very complex, slightly unusually, mostly smooth and but not bad at all.

jookos (3219) - FINLAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle (bbe 11/14, ie. old). Pale golden clear, huge head. Very interesting nose. Isn’t IPA- ish at all, rather champagne-y- breakfast toast, bready yeast, white winey soft buttery, light woody. Med bodied, soft bitters, some herbs. Cream buttery malts. Hope I’ll get to try a fresher bottle at some point.

Grumbo (809) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle from bierpost.com. Pours a cloudy orange yellow colour with a big frothy off white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with a sherbet nose. Medium sweet, with a light sourness. Body is medium, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. Very nice.

nihtila (1466) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
5.9.2014. Aroma is fruits, hops, sweet notes. Taste is malty, grassy, quite sweet, hops. A bit unbalanced.

ElDesmadre (2129) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Very yeasty aroma, really over the top. Some hoppy notes (e.g. mandarine) as well, but yeast for the most part. The flavour is luckily more hoppy, citrusy, grassy. Yeasty finish with a subtle currant note. Too much yeast in the aroma, carbonation is a bit too high and the bitterness is not enough to balance the sweetness. Otherwise ok.
