thewolf (11552) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours muddy brown with a small, creamy, film head. Aroma is lovely hoppy, very fruit, melons, apricot and grapefruit. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely hoppy, though never overly bitter. Apricot dominating over a fair caramel malt base. Really a nice IIPA.

TBone (14258) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Dark ruby-hazelnut brown color, not much head. Strong hop juice aroma. A bit sweet, extremely hoppy with licorice-malty flavors. Hops and malts both in extreme, a bit similar to Nøgne ø #100. Good beer when sampled in small quantities.

JorisPPattyn (8562) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Little head left, red-hazy amber beer. Extremely dry-hoppy nose. Caramel, fruit cake. Bitter-hoppy, near metallic, but balanced by good cakey malts. Some fruityness, bit oily from the hops, vinous. Impressive IIPA, and essentialy American - including in the never-ending name.

Grovlam (4167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2008
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Small foamy white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Hazy brown color. Aroma of heavy bitter floral notes with a mix of fruity apricot and grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. Over the palate came good counter sweetness from the caramel, toasted malt. Almost full bodied with a soft carbonation and heavy dry texture. Strong bitter flavor with some counter sweetness. Oily and at the same time very dry fruity/floral bitter finish.
