Bigespen (19) - Bagn, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2007
This beer is great from you buy it untill you finish it, and you just want more of it. A very well made beer, elegantly hopped with a well balanced yeast fruityness. The brewer has probably used a mix of american and english hops, and the palate realy gives us a fresh and bitter fruityness. One of the top IPA.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2007
Bottle, bbe 14,10,09. Hazy peach-amber hue with lots of yeast and a frothy, off-white head. Caramel and bready Maris-Otter is instantly recognizable and followed by strong pine and grapefruit hops. Peaches, grapes and a strong yeasty presence also make themselves known. Flavour starts moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter and finishes lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium bodied, creamy texture and lively carbonation. Not quite the bite I was expecting from this one.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 3, 2007
Bottled at "Plan B", Copenhagen. A cloudy red/amber beer with a big white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of citric fruits. Also the flavour is very hoppy with a good maltiness and the finish is bitter and dry. the bitterness lingers for a long in the aftertaste. Medium body and very drinkable. Nice beer.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2007
50 cl bottle, batch 270. Sunset brown with a beige, slow settling, head. Bready orange, light toffee and chamomile. Soft carb with a buttery, coating mouthfeel. Restrained hopping allows the subtler notes to come out. Tangerine, mango, pineapple, melon and even banana. Airy finish with peel and pith. Excellent IPA.
