Boutip (4699) - 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.

McNeillR (1140) - SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Slight dark golden. Foamy ringed head. Creamy peaches and cream hop. Fairly plain Jane bitterness, nothing problematic but foamy and peppery enough to carry through. Biscuit, honks of sweetness and a smooth finish and tense cloying finish. Sweet malt linger.

Bottle, Gunnar Tasting, Thanks to Karol!

Countbeer (4391) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle: Thanks to Cuso: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium to more smaller sized, vast thick and slowly changing creamy snowy soapy white foamy head on top of a hazy beautiful orange colored beer. Looks nice. Aroma is a floral mix of crispy malts, hops, hop fruits like peach and grapefruit, some light flower tones, some herbs and crispy smooth plant/floral tones and some creamy soap. Flavours of hops, soap, bitters, hop fruits, citrus, grapefruit, blood orange, malts, floral and just a good hop fruit floral bitterness. Aftertaste is good bitter, floral, some hops, bitter fruit and light dry. Low carbo, soft creamy smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and creamy light oily ish texture. Very nice: crisp and refreshing with a strong bitterness. Reminds me a bit of the classic English IPA.
