77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2012
Sample from a screwtop 1 littre bottle @ WoSF 2012 // awesome craft beer in a PET bottle, my first one, I love it // thx a lot to Diabel for this one // (a) slightly hazy golden with little head // (s) sweet, flower, lavender (I am getting it), touch nectar, melon, fruits, underriding herbs // (t) this one is pretty odd in a nice way, cough drops sweetness, very strongly herbal, like field of herbs, plenty of floral hops, touch pale malts, lavender soap detergent, touch flowers & grapes // very, very special & unique // touch out of my interest zone but I am quite digging the uniqueness of this, never had an IPA like this before & it comes in a PET bottle // nicely well carbonated, easy to drink but it is quite a lot to take in

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2012
on tap at klub malych pivovaru on numerous occasions. enticing shade of golden, light haze and indefatigable head; aroma of pine forest after rain; juicy texture with wrigley juicy fruit chewiness, menthol and plenty of citric bitterness. somehow i get the feeling this beer has become a little toned down recently with a less boisterous aroma but itís still a delight

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
draft at prague beer museum. fruity apple and grassy American hop nose; strong pear and fruit cocktail character. high bitterness, pasty and rough everywhere, over-estery, waxy and fruity, and comes across like an American-stye pale ale with citrus rind and kiwi lingering. medium body, moderately chewy, and a bit too sweet.
