kaser (3691) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Wow. Amazing. Perfect looking orange pour with thin white head. Citrus and grapefruit nose. The taste is exactly my wheelhouse IPA. Fruity, big, floral, perfect amount of hops. Up there with my favorites ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2012
On tap at Ridgewood Wine & Beer, Raleigh. Deep, potent-looking amber pour, almost with a hint of menace about it. Slightly cloudy, foamy head and sticky lacing. Aroma is initially a tad off-putting with its blend of soapiness and harsh hops. But the strong ale character emerges as the beer settles down and the suffusing bitterness comes to seem more organic. That was more or less the case with the flavors, which were aggressive as hell (an apt name, for sure) but fresh and ripe enough not to seem overdone.

boxofrane (2332) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy copper with a pretty aggressive head and decent lacing. Aroma is floral, citrus, and a little bit of caramel malt. Taste is very bitter but goes down very smoothly. There is no alcohol present in the mix which is stellar for a 10% brew. The palate is full with some stickiness on the finish. This is a very strong DIPA; however, it’s a bit pricey in PA ($7/btl)

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2012
Hazy yellow, strong hoppy aroma. Apricots, oranges, mint. The herbal element grows in the mouth until it is almost burning.

Habanero (3045) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2012
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy and orangey amber with a huge off-white head leaving an exellent lacing on the glass.Nose of citrus and pine needles. Sweet flavor of lemon peel, pine needles and grape fruit. Medium bodied, ceamy texture and soft carbonation. More dry and markekdly bitter finish.The alcohol is well hidddn and once again a very nice 2xIPA from Mikkeller.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2012
On cask at The Holyrood 9A. Pours a slightly hazy light amber colour with a fair white head. A lovely aroma of pine, pineapple, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering pineapple and quite bitter. Alcohol is very present with a warming hum.

Pours deep amber with big pine notes. Huge body of hops that drive spice, pine, and a deep long finish.

On tap at Amundsen Golden hazy color Full body & high complexity Distinct, but a little bit more integrated then Brother Low Extremely long aftertaste A bit heavy for my liking, but still very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyllenbock (5431) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2012
Bottle at Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö, April 2012. Hazy orange with a large white head. A lot of hops both in the aroma and taste. Citrus, tropical fruits and some notes of "rubber". Long bitter aftertaste. Good but not excellent.
