Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Sampled at the London Craft Beer Festival. Pours cloudy, golden-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Bready stuff with some orange, mild pine. Pretty sweet. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. A bit of juicy citrus to finish, with more bready malts. Decent.

Zer0 (1133) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers The Hague. Pours clear copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, soap and floral. Taste is.... odd. Bitter, but some sourness aswell. Could be infected. Weird funky soapy flavour. Not good at all. Some peach is there aswell, but yeah, peach is not my favourite fruit... ahem. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Maakun (808) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2013
Hazy copper. Soapy, lightly roasted malts, some lychee, lime, perfume, flowery. Taste is sweet with better kicks at start and finish. Bit wild. Fizzy carbonation. Overall not bad, but slightly too soapy and chemical tasting for me.

deanso (5685) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2013
33cl bottle from ABCbeers. Thick white head. Hoppy aroma. Hazy light amber pour. refreshing bitterness but not hoppy enough. Nice and drinkable though.

kermis (5686) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to deanso. Aroma is malty, caramel, light grapefruit and grassy but I think it’s past it’s best and not fresh enough. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

andrewturba (1070) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Pours a murky brownish copper with massive off white head a moderate amount of lace. Aroma is citrus, orange, tangerine, and caramel. Flavour is grapefruit, resin, a medium bitterness that lingers into the after taste, sweet caramel malts that try to balance the high alpha acids of the summit hops(kinda works) and a bit tropical fruity though not very distinctive. Enjoyable and a good showcasing of the hop!

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2013
33cl bottle @ Il Pretesto, Bologna partagée avec Giorgio. Cuivrée trouble, col beige. Garde un bouquet légèrement renfermé, houblonné vert sur des pointes fruitées. Palais est houblonné, fruité modéré orangée et citronné assez sec en fin de bouche, et herbacé. Le tout présente un léger côté levure renfermé en fin de bouche qui accompagne bien le houblon.

reebtogi (4360) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
330ml bottle pours a murky brown color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and herbs with some light chocolate. Taste is a light chocolate malty sweetness with a bold citrus and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the palate. A decent IPA that I recommend others to try.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2013
It’s with a heavy heart that I score this way. Seems to me that the hops are oxidized. Served at a good temperature with a giant, cream colored, foamy, frothy, very long lasting head and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber copper. Aroma is malt, oak, caramel, wet cardboard? Flavor’s are similar to nose with cashed hop up front, followed by sweet malt. Hop isn’t totally gone, still has a bit of freshness. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, short lived, leaves me yearning for a fresh one.

Countbeer (4709) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass: Medium sized fluffy but vast and slowly changing off white foamy head on top of a hazy amber colored beer with some red ish tints. Aromas of hops, hop fruits, citrus, pine, apricot, resin, some grapes, some manure, floral tones, some malts and a sprinkle of yeast. Lovely aroma of hop fruits some hop flowers and a lighter makty backbone. Very nice! Flavour is a bit more floral with lesser fruity tones: lot of herbs, bitters, hop herbs, some grass and hay, spices, grapefruit, citrus, malts, light hints of grains and chalk, some herbal spices, yeast and plant tones. Aftertaste is bitter with hops, herbs, floral tomes, some grapefruit, grass and citrus. Medium carbo, creamy ligtly blown mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a creamy texture.
