mkel07 (4541) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2012
330ml bottle. Like the rest of the beers in the Mikkeller single hop series this one is a cracker with a big fluffy head of sand coloured foam that refuses to fade. Base colour of the beer is sunset orange with a light haze. The aroma packs a passion fruit punch and is pleasing to the nose. Full mouthfeel and a resinousy lingering aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Blind tasting at the Penguin. Clear bronze with a high, sculpted white foam. Humming, florid, tropical fruit (lychee, mango) aroma with peach and blackcurrant back notes. Less expressive on the flavour front with a lean grapefruit bitterness leading to an abrupt, un-aromatic finish. Some peach, chlorophyll and warming alcohol. Tasty enough, but missing that certain something (another hop?)...

Draft at gingerman. Pours an amber body with light white lacing. Aroma is sweet grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium starts off creamy but ends short with notes of citrus hops, grapefruit, and light onions.

Terminus (3409) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2012
tap at Jester king brewery Austin, TX March 2012-pours lightly hazy orange with a rocky off-white head. nose is leafy, almost tobbaco-like hop nose, lite spice and lite herbal quality as an almost dank shoveled earth kind of quality. . flavors exhibit the mentioned leafy herbal qualities of this hop-doesnt come across as a very good hop for ipas, this would be good for esb’s, session ales and maybe even some belgians. Not very bitter, but has some definate spicy hop qualities. For what it is, its definately decent however, i do not think this is a very good hop for IPA’s. A well crafted beer however.

ClubGonzo (4904) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 6, 2012
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Dark hazy near-brown orange body, medium creamy off-white head. Nose is earthy leafy tones, hints of pine, wood and herbs. Nougat-like grassy herbal tones, hints of earth, potatoes and parsley. Weird, but not as weird as the Summit and considerably more drinkable.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 6, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Slightly hazy red-orange beer with a huge off-white head of good duration. Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus and pineapple. The flavor is medium sweet and moderately bitter in taste and aftertaste

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2012
Tap at Ginger Man. Deep amber pour. The aroma is softly malty with an unusual sweet estery yeast component. A bit of odd kind of dank character. Peachy and oddly hoppy. Meh - I don’t really care for this.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2012
330 ml bottle. Copenhagen, Denmark.
Cloudy amber colour with average size off-white head. Resiny hops, mild sweetness and malt in aroma. Flavour is... the hoppiness is quite mild with resin and fruits. No real bitterness. Apollo is not my new favourite hop. It’s not bad.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2012
On tap @ Henrik. A bronze cloudy body, small lacing and sidesticking off-white. Smells like a sweet old, near rotten and wet yeast infused trunk. Flavor: Not horrible, but most likely, no, make that definitely not how it’s suppose to taste. Same in the flavor, strange woody old berries and fungi. Strange. Have to re rate this one I think. A shame, clearly infected. 15.03.2012
