puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bottled. Gorgeous pour, big rocky white head. Aroma is very dry, wheaty, horse blanket, bitter hop, perhaps some tomahawk, some British stuff. Light, fruity flavor, some yogurt, cucumber, a bit lactic. Pretty weak for a Belgian IPA.

Pours gold into a snifter. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to island surface. Orange peel and yeast aromas. Sweet yeast upfront turning to a tangy orange middle and onto a lasting bitter pith finish.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - MAR 16, 2010
(swing top bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and blond, slowly lacing foamy head. Sweet and slightly yeasty, cara-malty and slightly grainy aroma. Sweet flavour, full bodied with a crisp carbonation. Cara-malty, bready and slightly fruity taste; sweet and slightly bitter finish with an obvious presence of alcohol. Despite the name of the beer, there are not much hops in here. 16.III.10

GT2 (9265) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
This is like one of the "craft beers" we get in the states that actually suck but since they are marketed as being not mass produced, people who know little about beer buy them and think they are high end. Flying Dog for instance or Dogfish Head. This pours a glowing clear yellow that becomes a light hazy with the yeast added. The head towers like ice cream and sits there almost indefinitely. Aroma is lemon zest. Taste is meh. Palate is meh. Light bodied- a bit contrived.

Pinball (11140) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2010
swingtop bottle. clear to slightly hazy orange, large collapsing smooth and fluffy white head. aroma is slightly citrussy or sour, light-sweet malty, strangely enough aroma reminds me of pilsener???. flavor is quite sweet, malty, alc can be tasted, lots of bitterness especially in the end, the sweetness is quite sugary, but also ever so slightly fruity. the total flavor profile is a bit weird.

Bottled. Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Bruges. Light cloudy pale golden with big, cottony head. Airy and dewy in the nose with citric suggestions. Dry feel here. Flavour is elegant, light malty with a light-ish body and bitter, almondy alcohol, that is a bit too clear due to a high attenuation rate. A raised saccharification temp is adviced, or use less fermentable sugars to give it a more balanced sweetness. Medium bitter overall.
