Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2013
Dark golden amber, medium white head. Strong resinous hoppy aroma upfront, some malty sweetness behind it. Served way too hot, and not too refreshing.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2013
0,33 l bottle, from a trade with Cuso. Pours a dark gold to amber colored body. Low lacing white head. Nose is sweetish malts up front, offset by a scent of rounded fruity and grassy hops. Light sweet on the tongue. A clean and delicate malt-sweetness. Balancing bitterness; Fruity, light spicy and earthy, with a touch of evergreen. Good body, soft and slick in the mouth. Balaced malty/bitter ending. Likeable. Malt driven, and quite similar to English type IPA.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle before the Zizkov v Horni Mecholupy game (7-2). Hazy clear Amber with a good White head that fades to lacing. Grassy citrus hops with a solid bitterness leading to an abrupt dry finish. Slight burning rubber vibe to the hops. Nice enough.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 25, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to Cuso! Pours a clear orange with some spitty, whote head. Nose is a little weird, orange and cigarette ash, stale malt, honey. Flavor is better, malty, orange, a little cardboard, honey, pine, metal. Sticky finish.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear light amber color ale with a small foamy head with good retention and limited lacing. Aroma consists of grassy hops with dry notes. Taste is super dry with some non-descript malt and solid dry and grassy hops notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. The grassy hops are quite nice but the surprising factor is the fact that this is the most dry IPA I have ever tasted which is welcome after so many sweet caramel malt based IPA.

50cl bottle, thanks nimbleprop. Cloudy amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grass, roange, some honey. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some grassy, light bread. Medium body, light acidity.

gunnar (5290) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2013
Shared bottle at Edinburgh tasting. Pours almost clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is pretty good hoppy. Taste is resiny and citrussy hops, good malty base, dry and smooth mouthfeel.
