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.

Beer5000 (5062) - 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 (3495) - 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 (875) - 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 (1734) - 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 (2279) - 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.

Skinnyviking (7788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle at Braukunst Live München 2015. Medium high lasting white head. Cloudy orange body. Dry apple pear peach aroma. Relatively sweet fruity flavor with a dry note and a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long dry finish.

rosenbergh (8578) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 14/1/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy golden colour with a big foamy white head. Quite mild hoppy and malty aroma with airy and piney notes. The flavour is dry hops, pine, mild bitterness and dry malt. Naja... a bit of a disappointment. Probably the fresher the better.

NierBier (9) - GERMANY - JAN 7, 2015 does not count
0.33 l bottle. Hazy golden color with thick white head that dissipates slowly. Hop aroma is strong. Great taste followed by strong bitterness. Very drinkable for me.

Psytron (1585) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Smell of mango, citrus. Muddy colour, extreme white head. Aroma of alcohol, sugar, overripe fruit. Surprisingly strong alcohol sweetness for this abv. Flat carbon, very oily texture. Sweet.
