smroush (67) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Color is a clear light yellow; head is an off-white and sparse. Aroma is all hops; very much spruce. Body is medium; carbonation average; bitter finish. Finish is long and all hops - pretty bitter. Overall a reasonable IPA, though fairly one dimensional with dominating spruce hops.

Saeglopur (536) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by MisoW. Thanks!
Dark golden, hazy body, with a small, white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, grass, some peach, some dark fruits.
Taste follows this, with some more caramel.
Medium mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, grassy.

Good, but nothing special. An average IPA, with the expectable aromas, presented in a well balance and good drinkability. There are much better IPAs though.
