Snegurochka's rating

Snegurochka (341) - Tromsø, - JUL 25, 2012
500ml bottle, 3.Mar.2012 Slightly hazy amber body, with small head that rapidly diminishes and leaves patchwork on top and glass. Very pleasant and rich aroma, sea, citrus black elder flowers, buttercup, chervil and wet grass after rain. This impression is mirrored also in taste. Very smooth and well balanced. With grilled stockfish dinner @ Arctandria, Tromsø.

Pours classic yellow with thin head. Strong pine hoppy aroma. Nice balance of malts, alcohol and hops. Hard to believe this comes in at 100 IBUs. Very refined and easy to drink.

allmyvinyl (2175) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper, thin white head. Massive hop aromas, orange, grapefruit, pine and resin all there. Taste is bitter, resinous, light caramel sweetness coming through. Good.

Karol (508) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2014
Bottled. Bitter floral alcohol aroma, no citurs or any exotic fruit. Color is clear copper. Taste is good. Bitter hops, alcohol warming, hoppy longlasting finish. Initial sweet malt transforms to bitterness. Nice, I like this change. Overall good, but I prefer BrewDog’s hardcore IPA.

dreamflower (479) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle shared with northropfrye. I’m not feeling this beer. Lovely apricot appearance. But the aroma, taste and palate all are falling flat for me. There’s a bitterness there but it’s not an interesting refreshing bitterness it’s more of a dull flat bitterness. I guess me and this beer are not meant to be.

northropfrye (1946) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Dark orange/peach body, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Nice grainy malt aroma. Taste is iced tea, hops and malts. Nice double IPA.

Rich malt body, hard-hitting hop’s aroma, I think Nøgne Ø is very favorite beer of Japanese !!!

boxofrane (1878) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2014
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours fairly clear orange with a small white head. The aroma has big grapefruit, rind, some piney notes. The taste is very sweet orange and grapefruit, slight bitterness.

DialSquare (2311) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
500ml bottle from Proof. Hazy orange pour with a big off-white head and strong retention. Aroma is warm fruit, apricot, resin, caramel. Tastes are floral, peach, nutty, earthy, grapefruit, wood, little toasty. Creamy medium palate. Even bitterness. English ale tea vibe. Very well constructed, but more of a one time sipper for my tastes.

MichaelAwesome (2982) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Unausgewogen und nicht gerade ausbalanciert. Etwas derb in der Bitterkeit, dazu grasig mit Limetten und etwas Mango. Irgendwie nicht so richtig, aber dennoch mit Ansätzen.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Deutlich fruchtiger Hopfenantrunk, im dem vor allem Mango- und Limettennoten vorhanden sind. Grasig süß, weiterhin sehr hopfig. Herb bitter, klebrig, nicht ganz ausgewogen. 9/12/7/10/11/11
