MotherBrother (692) - Aalborg, - NOV 17, 2012
Tap @ John Bull, provided by ma mommy;) Pour hazy dark yellow, with a small white head. Aroma of pine, apricot, grapefruit, hop-juice. Slight Christmas spices in this one. The taste is slightly sweet upfront, with a rather bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, with a slightly fizzy carb.

Kissé halványabb színű, opálosan fakó, annál élénkebb aromákat bocsát viszont ki magából. Mesterien olvadnak össze a fenyős és gyümölcsös jellemvonások, kettejük kapcsolatát pedig egy fantasztikusan eltalált, tejszínes, krémes háttér egyengeti, mely által az összkép simább, süteményes jellegűvé is válik a karcosabb jegyek jelenléte mellett. Mazsolás, aszalt gyümölcsös összetevők kedveskednek bevezetésképpen, hogy némiképp tompítsák a vad gyantás, komlóolajos arculat kiteljesedésének hatását. Változatos, szinte megfoghatatlanul sokszínű, izgalmas karakterű ital, mely szintén jól sikerült példával szolgál a karácsonyi sörök újabb felfogás alapján kivitelezett darabjainak területén.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Better than the bottle. Lovely pine and ginger flavour coming through, sweet malty taste.

minutemat (1502) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Keg @ Brewdog Sheffield. Pours hazy gold with off-white head and a hoppy orange and caramel aroma. Taste is fruity tropical orange punch with a pine bitterness and slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Decent.

gEUS (1022) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2014
330 ml bottle. Aroma is much on the green & pine characteristics of the hops. Sweet bitter aroma, increasingly bitter towards the end. Medium dry finish. A tad too hoppy for my liking, and the taste is somewhat bland...

HKdIPA (226) - HONG KONG - APR 21, 2014
Bottle from Kaohsiung HSR station. Aroma is grassy hops. Taste is bitter at first, bit of orange and then only slightly detectable ginger bite (may not know it if it didn't say on the bottle). Has that hops - is it chinook? - that I don't like, tastes a bit plasticky and empty. Mostly just bitter. With a dry and slightly boozy finish. Not bad but wouldn't get again.

ALLOVATE (2381) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Pour’s all foam and frustration. Two thirds of head with a little beer underneath. Hazy, dull amber with a bad case of the floaties. Head does eventually subside. after mucking up the glass well. Resinous, sweet, citrus dowsed nose. Doughy and thick like caramelised orange, banoffee pie, and toffee’d apple. Straightforward, citrus and tropical fruit dominated palate. Light burn on the finish. Hops are flooded by the esters. Ginger has a sideline role. Yeasty, muddled malt mid-palate. Quite lean in body, almost watery in approach. Carbonation is soft given the heady explosion on the pour. Vinous more than beer like. Refreshing but forgettable to be blatantly honest. Nothing strikingly unique here. Cool label!! (33cL, BB 06/03/14, The Liquor Barn, Jandakot)
