77ships (7353) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2016
Draft glass @ Gollem. Deep hazy orange, little white head. Nose is oddly sweet, sugar, sweet paper, neutral with low sweet hops, some fruity tropical qualities are present but basic sugary sweetness drowns them out. Taste is the same, there is pine resin, hay, low mango but neutral sweetness, candy & sweet orange peel drown them out. Neutral candy & sugar body. Too neutral, too sweet, doesn’t pop. Bit of a letdown put okay as neutral easy brew.

drjoeng (701) - SINGAPORE - APR 10, 2016
6.5%ABV.  IPA. Poured out gold.  8ºSRM. Nose has ripe lemons and oranges.  Bright citrus aromas predominate. Some pale malt sweetness in the nose. Mouthfeel is watery.  Palate has pale malt body with some floury, bready flavors.  Hops are lemon zest with the same level of bitterness.   Some spiciness suggesting mint or basil, very much like hyssop.  Finish is medium and on the light end of the bitterness spectrum.   There is another leg at the very very end that blooms Overall impression is that this is a light, easy drinking, pale malt based ale with some citrus, plenty of spice and herbaceously and refreshingly bitter. Goes on Favorites List!

superspak (4403) - Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2016
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 10/28/2017. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and lightly grainy/creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice west coast IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

anstei (977) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from Beers’n’more. A refreshing, slightly tropical IPA. Very well balanced between bitterness, sweetness, hoppy passionfruit and mango aroma. Well done, but not outstanding.

Vierte naranja turbio con media capa de espuma blanca de aspecto jabonoso y buena retención; aromas a uva blanca, miel, fruta tropical y resina; en boca entrada media, maltosa con amargor equilibrado , el trago empieza dulce y acaba ligeramente amargo, acentuándose en el retrogusto, cuerpo y carbónico medios, pos gusto largo, amargo y seco, notas a resina y mango, buena cerveza acorde a su estilo, compleja y equilibrada entre malta y lúpulo.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - FEB 25, 2016
Another IPA from Mikkeller, with a nice name and label. Just tastes like another Mikkeller IPA, nothing less, nothing more. Once a rater tasted a beer, he is done with it? Well I prefer drinking a drinker’s beer than a rater’s beer.
