There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isn’t there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just don’t call it "too bookoo!"

lusikka (5993) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma is rather strong with herbs, weed, pine and fruitiness. Rich and floral flavour with strong bitterness, sweet orange juice, pils malt, strong herbal notes and some mild graininess. Medium bodied and a big, dry, very bitter finish. I just love Mosaic hops, but somehow pils malt is a bit too dominant here malt-wise. Maybe this just isn’t as fresh as it should be. Still enjoyable.

olio (5896) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
65 cl bottle. No freshness info.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Nice fruity and hoppy on the nose, floral notes, pine needles and some grass. Caramel malts on the flavor, citric fruits with oily and resinous hops. Slick bitter palate. Nice, refreshing and balanced, nothing special though.

Une bouteille brune qui ne porte aucune date. Petite trouvaille bien intéressante dans cet état du sud des États-Unis. Une belle robe orangée habite dans mon verre. La mousse s’installe pour ne jamais mourir. Une dentelle est complètement déroulée. Quelle prestation! Le nez est frais, très frais et bien parfumé par des ananas, des oranges, des pamplemousses et des melons mûrs. Wow! Au goût, les agrumes acidulés sont fiers et forts. Quel délice! Les malts pâles (pils, avoine, seigle?) comprennent leur rôle. D’autres fruits récompensent mes papilles. En bouche, un liquide au corps-moyen faible avec un pétillement vif et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une sensation en bouche qui me rappelle certaines pales ales brassées au Vermont. Une finale fruitée avec du pamplemousse et florale avec des relents de conifères. Délicieuse sur toute la ligne. Une IPA comme on peut en trouver à Greensboro. J’écrirais Hill Farmstead sur cette bouteille et il n’y aurait aucune note inférieure à 4 sur 5. Tchin tchin du bord de la piscine!

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
Golden yellow with a slight haze, off-white head and ok lace. Aromas of citrus hops, pine, passion fruit, pineapple and kiwi, with a modest barnyard smell as well. Flavor includes grapefruit, tangerine and light floral hops with an earthy malt backbone, and rye-like spices. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp finish.

Tmoney99 (10444) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex sour citrus earthy hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

bhensonb (10731) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma is an amazing medley of fruits. Some quite unusual. Med + body. Flavor is earthy hop with a lot of New Zealand suggestions. Quite fruity after the earth passes by. It’s finishing pretty dry and very bitter. Highly recommended.

Ontape (215) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bomber. A nice looking beer. Simcoe and Mosaic dominate. Seems out of balance, the bitterness is a touch aggressive. Abrupt finish, maybe a bit tannic? There are things I like in here but others that aren’t working. No bottle date that I can see, doesn’t taste stale but I wonder how fresh.
