JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2011
Fully hazy amber-orange beer under fluffy, dense, dirty cream-coloured beer; shards of lace. Horrible basement smell, mushrooms, sulphur or/and saltpetre, cat’s pee, ureum, valerian and old, oxydized oatmeal (I was going to write ’socks’...) Again ureum to the fore, the smell of lilies, or cut lilies in a watervase. Retronasal, the basement aroma, with meaty and mouldy notes return. Rather well-bodied, thick and creamy MF. But that smell... Yikes. That one (catty) hop can change so much. Agreed, there is some amount of fleetingness, the intensity of this off-smell diminishes somewhat warming up. Yet, another Sorachi Ace for me, please.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2011
On tap. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Weird skunky aroma - there’s some cats pee here AND fried onions and rubberbands. Medium-bodied with a light fruit sweetness, a vague whiff of peaches and then again these notes of pee and fart. The finish is dry but not overly bitter. Not really a hop that is easy to appreciate. 261011

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. A dense, beige head sits on top of a more or less clear, golden body. Piney, peachy nose with resins and orange peel. Not much room left for the maltyness. A bit catpee like in the mouth, full-bodied and smooth, a nice malty sweetness blending in and also a fine bitterness. The latter especially in the end. A tasteful and pleasant IPA, although a bit on the cat pee side. Could easily drink a few of this. 111105
