Bathory (458) - Bryne, - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma of peach and pine foremost, but also some notes of caramel. The aroma are exactly the same as I can tell by the nose acutally. Would expect more from this one to be fair.

Bottle. Hazy dark orange pour with offwhite head. Aroma has lots of flowers and apricot. Taste has plesent bitterness on a full body. The bitter notes are long lasting. Medium carbonation.

Aprikose, leicht tropisch, Malz. Etwas alte Flasche. Am Gaumen direkte Bitterkeit, leicht alkoholisch, Malzkörper da. Gut.

chimpgibbon (385) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Keg at BD Shep Bush. Super fresh and super tasty. Oddly malty for a mikkeller ipa but the fruit just rides it out and keeps on ridin’. Grapefruits on holiday in the tropics with tangerine jousting with marmalade. Top.

evergreen0199 (2222) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Keg at Brewdog in Shepherd’s Bush, London. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, grapefruit, pine, caramel aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, pine, grapefruit, caramel, slightly dry and bitter. A quality IPA.

Unde (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Orange cloudy colour, ok head on top which dissolves quite fast. Aroma is really nice, there is tropical fruits, citrus and lemon and some mango. Taste is quite bitter, with sweet fruits and citrus. Medium body with medium carbonation. Simcoe is a nice hop variety, but single hop IPAs are rarely past the ’nice beer’ point.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Cloudy, copper colour. Thick, bubbly, dense on top, lasting, cream coloured head. Bitter orange. Fusty, overripe mandarin. Some mineral. I do like Simcoe, but I’m not sure I’d have clocked it in this if I didn’t know. Drinks fresh, light, soft sweet, with a little resin bitterness. Towards the end, the bitterness rises, and lingers. Lacks the skunky hop I expected, but it’s still pretty good.

bytemesis (3979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle, thanks to bursprak! Pours hazy burnt umber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is windex, citrus, grapefruit, pine, garlic. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, pine, grapefruit, a bit harsh. Medium body. Meh.

Citrusy, soapy aromas. Heavy lacing. Some good body. Refreshing, bitter taste. Overall quite good

JonMoore (1960) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog on-line. Hazy golden amber with large white head, visibly carbonated. Aroma of tropical fruit and pine. Taste is grapefruit, pine. Nicely dry and bitter. Good IPA.

allmyvinyl (5176) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2015
330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours clear golden amber, long-lasting white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon end of citrus, light pine. Taste has a good malt backbone to match the orange bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, full-mouth bitterness coating at the end. Just the ticket!
