_angst_ (2616) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours murky orangish brown with a small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small sticky trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, grapes, overripe gooseberries, moist grass, pine needles, orange zest, lemon zest, alcohol and diesel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, grapes, diesel, gooseberries, resin, pine needles, moist grass, orange zest, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky sweet, oily bitter, slightly astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, pineapple, grapes, diesel, chives, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and alcohol. Better hop profile than the rest in this series but the base beer is still too sticky for me...

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy amber/orange body with a good off-white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with mango, yeasty, and malty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, grainy, coriander, and some subtle woody notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very well done.

Gurthnar (1568) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Aroma strong hoppy. Fruity, citrus, sauvin. Clear orange colour. Taste is hammering you with hops right from beginning. Resiny, citrus, orange zest. At the same time strong sweet maltiness. Very good, but for me this hops just does not strike the right notes in this intensity.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Let uklar orangegylden, fingertykt hvidt skum. Masser af alphasyre i næsen. Græs, sved, hyldeblomst, kattetis, overmodne eksotiske frugter. Virker sødere og tungete end Citra’en i samme serie

thirstyrabbit (1079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Golden orange body, medium head. Aroma has strange hops with dill, mango and overripe sweet fruits. Sweet syrupy taste with mango and other ripe tropical fruits. A bit cloying finish but the alcohol is well covered. It’s a strange but not a bad DIPA.
