reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a 3 finger white head that has good retention and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some earthy notes and light toasted grains. Taste is grapefruit and pine up front fading to a heavy maltiness and an earthy finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Even though this IPA is a little heavy on the malts, I still found this to be a tasty and enjoyable brew.

Davros (2029) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2012
Pours dark amber with a lasting head. Nose shows piny and grapefruit hops, along with a resinous note. Also a fair whack of rich sweet caramel. Flavours follow along those lines; lots of sweet, syrupy crystal malt, resinous hops and soft grapefruit/pine. Finishes with an assertive bitterness, but the malt wins out in the end. Body feels a bit too syrupy. Too much malt in my opinion, almost cloying.

robinvboyer (3264) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
Dark hazy amber pour, small beige head. Earthy, citrus, soapy pine aroma with a good dose of caramel malts. Solid carb, meium, almost viscous mouthfeel. Finish is medium on the bitterness, but finishes quite sweet.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of earthy hops with light citrus undertones and dry caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by a nice dose of earthy hops with some citrus undertones and a light bitter finish. Body is full with good carbonation. Not my favourite hops varietal but still very enjoyable nonetheless.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle at Craigs. Clear Orange with a lively White head. Aroma of toffee malt. Hops are tropical fruits and a little sherbet. It’s well balanced and has a pleasant bitterness to finish. Drunk side by side with the ’Summit’ .Very nice.

In bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit and caramel. Similar flavours and nicely bitter. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

SlovakSniper (3369) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
Une bouteille de 33 cl. Sur la capsule blanche, on peut lire la date suivante: 11/10/13. Une robe cuivrée ou orangée, c’est selon. Une tête élégante et durable. Une dentelle éparse. Un nez qui s’associe au caramel et qui flirte avec des houblons herbeux. Des fruits? Sans doute cachés derrière les malts. Un goût qui offre une éclosion florale qui intéresse mes papilles. Des céréales sucrées qui viennent polir ces flaveurs houblonnées qui vivent dans la simplicité. Une belle bouche de moyenne dimension avec un apport de bulles convenable et une texture qui se rapproche davantage de l’huile. Une finale qui n’est jamais dominée par l’amertume et le sucré des malts. Une bière certainement facile à boire mais nullement portée vers l’idée de dépassement.

hawthorne00 (2549) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a large off-white head that collapses to an inch. Aroma of grapefruit, orange blossoms, some lychees, toffee. A little bit leafy. A little caramel sweetness then it’s mostly citrus fruits. Bitterness is plain but not harsh. The citrus notes are fine, but there’s no tenor notes there and the beer seems a little thin.

Beer4000 (4615) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2012
330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Hazy orange body with a fine off-white head. Relativly mild aroma of citric fruit, tropical fruit and caramel. Flavor has caramel malt, moderate fruity and a fine, sharp bitterness. Medium body and a fine bitter aftertaste that almost feels a bit dry. One of the few single hop beers that actually works.
