olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2013
On tap at Man in the Moon in Stockholm (during the IPA festival). Fruity smell with hops, melon, fresh and flowery. Taste of British yeast aromas and fruity hops, fresh. Very easy to drink.

danlo (1840) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Cask at Tanners Hall JDW Darlington. Clear golden amber colour, creamy white head with lots of lacing and a malty sour mash aroma. Taste is malt, biscuit, citrus hops with some bitterness. Smooth, medium body, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Slightly hazy orange colour, mediumsized beige head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is grassy, herbal, hayish and mild bready maltyness. Flavour is bigtime bitterness with mild yeasty and malty notes along with some grass and mild earthyness as well. Rather bitter finish.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Slightly weak appearance but a fine creamy head hides an extremely hopped ale, especially in its taste.

foxo82 (815) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Pale yellow/amber with virtually no head. Faint floral, hoppy aroma. Tastes full bodied, very dry and very bitter so it won’t win any prizes for drinkability. Grapefruit, grassy, citrus, just not one ounce of sweetness. It’s like drinking sandpaper but I think I like it - it’s just not quite to my taste.

delnoche (484) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JUN 13, 2012
50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Hazy gold with one finger white head. Aroma is grassy hops. A resiny hops flavor that goes slightly sour at the end. A full-bodied ale that leaves a lasting hops finish. Nice.

Martin243 (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Pint at the Boathouse in Wylam. Poured slightly hazy golden colour with a grapefruit aroma. Loads of sharp fruit flavour, refreshing, with a pleasantly astringent finish. A truly lovely beer.
