gildnerk (127) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
Flasche. Gießt ziemlich hellgelb für ein IPA ein mit einer dünnen weißen Schaumkrone. Ziemlich trüb mit einigen Heferesten. Aromas von Zitrusfrucht und Tanne. Geschmack ist erstmal säuerlich-hopfig und lässt allmählich nach, etwas wenig Hopfen im Abgang für meinen Geschmack. Aber trotzdem lecker.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle nr. 301 from Bierzwerg. Golden blonde, hazy. Grapefruit, melon, plastic and oily hops in the aroma. Thin. Earthy floral hopbitter flavor, with grapefruit, lemon and mango. The hops have slightly faded. Still a good beer.

pivnizub (8745) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle (kindly delivered by Quack-Duck!): Cloudy, golden with an orangey sheen, stable white foamy layer, moderate to solid grapefruity and herbal hoppy nose; moderate to strong bitter-sweet flavour, soft to creamy, light to medium bodied; bitter-grapefruity finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The right stuff....

olio (5931) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33 cl bottle. Bottle no. 297.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, exotic fruits, grass and citrus fruits. Flavor of goose berries, hops, grass and some toffee notes. Nice aroma but the taste isn’t as good. Decent anyway.

laiti (5550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33 cl bottle @ olio. Bottle #297, BBE 31.03.2013
Aroma is rather nice with fruity hops, pineapple, resin and hints of nettles. Flavour has goosebery bush, some caramel, pineapple and hints of resin. Slightly unpleasantly lingering hops in the aftertaste. Good.

I thought I bought the final version but it seems that I got this. I’m okay with that though.

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is rather strong of floral hops and pungent citrus. A bit stuffy flavour of pale malts, strong floral hops, gooseberries, grass and juicy citrus. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a floral, lingering bitter and citrusy finish. NIce one.

tiong (3672) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
330ml bottle

Bottle #297 - Pours dark yellowish with a bubbly white head. Aroma of exotic fruity hops, hints of grass, resin and malts. Taste is fruity, bitter and malty with hints of gooseberries, resin and grassy hops. Finish is dry and bitter with some fruitness and resiny notes. Okay, quite tasty, although a bit dry and musty IPA.

Kristall-König (2191) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2013
Zitrusmäßiger Geruch, Grapefruit und Mandarine. Beginnt sehr zitrusdominiert. Mittelteil Grapefruitnoten, leichte Säure. Klingt würzigbitter aus, überlagert von Grapefruitaromen/Mandarine. Schön.
