tomer (2060) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 3, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, smallish head, cloudy palish orange color, aroma of citrus and flowers with a hint of orange blossom and maltiness, flavor of orange marmalade, peanuts, citrusy bitterness and just a malty touch. Nice but a bit off balance.

mcberko (8544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at Micro Bar, pours a cloudy dirty orange with a large white head. Nose brings out tangy citrus notes and dry biscuity malt to back. Flavour is similar, revealing notes of tangy citrus hops, pine, resin and just enough biscuity malt. Dry, tangy, hoppy and impeccably balanced. Excellent stuff.

shoulderbroken (2476) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is good, tropical fruit as expected, mango, booze, bit of cat pee, bit of resin. Taste is good too. Initial hop bitterness then fades into long tropical fruit finish, pineapple and mango. Can’t feel the alcohol so much. Nice.

Mesjasz (167) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Piana: bia?a, drobna, g?sta, wygl?da wspania?e i wolno opada. Kolor: ciemny pomara?cz, lekko m?tne. Zapach: S?odki. S? grapefruty, ananas, mango, karmel, s?ód. Jak na taki poziom alkoholu(8,9%) bardzo orze?wiaj?cy, ?wie?y. Smak: Idealne zbalansowanie goryczki i s?odyczy, wydaje si? jakby istnia?y w tej samej chwili. Bardzo pe?ne, wszystko jest wype?nione jakim? smakiem. Dominuj? oczywi?cie cytrusy, troche ?ywicy, lekko przebija si? ananas i pomara?cza. W posmaku goryczka, nast?pnie alkoholowa s?odycz i na samym ko?cu pomara?cza. Intryguj?ce piwo. Ogólnie: Baaardzo dobre piwo. Lubi? tyle wra?e? przy jednej ma?ej butelce. Z ch?ci? sprobuje reszty IIPA z tej serii.

Kauge (567) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Sip (€ 5.30). BB 10/2016. Hazy amber colour. Creamy white top with excellent retention and lacing. Nose... like someone had an accident... I wouldn’t say it’s like white wine, rather like green veggies... (in a fart)... grassy, almost cannabis-like... by no means I can say this is any good. I do like beers that use NS but this showcase here is fckn mad. I just don’t like it. The pissy NS mellows when warmer, almost making it seem ok. Taste has more of a white wine character. Quite sweet, fruity, and fairly bitter. Kind of a raspberry and cherry moment there. Some enjoyable spiciness. Nice balance. Body is on lighter side of medium, whereas carbonation is near flat. It’s soft and creamy on the palate. Overall? I don’t like NS. So in the aroma department I consider this horrible. Yet it tastes and feels nice. Will try another NS showcase in a mo.

Bontus (666) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours hazy yellow to light orange. Creamy head. Grape bitter nose. Not as oily/aromatic as the Citra one. Medium to low carbonation. Alcohol very hidden. Great drinkability. Nelson Sauvin lacks punch to carry the aroma on its own, pale ale body leaves all for the hops.

Zwiebel88 (461) - GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
Zitrus, Trauben, helle Früchte. Wunderbare Balance am Gaumen, schöner Malzkörper, angenehm bitter. Top.
