Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2010
On tap. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head leaving laces. Fresh and flowery hops in the nose. Medium body, very fruity and flowery with an extremely hoppy and dry finish. Bitter indeed. The driness makes this beer highly drinkable. 200910

Zymurgeist2 (1104) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Out of the cask at Gourmet Haus in Redwood City. Pours a brilliant sunset orange with a slightly taupe head that is slightly rocky yet also cloud-like. Citrusy hops surprisingly jump off the nose with undertones of earth permeating - a lot of well balanced hops here. Taste predominates with malt backbone, the bitterness of the hops follows through the mid-to-late palate. The bold hop aroma shows itself more through bitterness than flavour. Taste is less balanced than the aroma let on. Mouthfeel is high alcohol and coating, with some chewy bread at the end.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Tap @ Pikkulintu.
Pours a hazy dark amber colour with a small natural white head. Aroma of raw hops and pine needles. Flavour of pine needles, grapefruit, raw floral hops with some sweet caramel notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel. Dry, raw hoppy finish. Pretty straightforward but lacks character.

gyllenbock (5022) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2011
Bottle in Copenhagen, April 2011. Hazy orange with a large white head. Citrus, grass, light spices and some malt. Good balance on this one, bitter but not brutally bitter. The bottle was quite old so it would be nice to try a fresh one.
