Saeglopur (1663) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 17, 2016
500 ml bottle, bb 10 Nov 2016. Courtesy of Werckmeister, thanks!
Golden, amber, clear body, with a medium, fluffy, moderately lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, grass, flowers, some herbs, some passion fruit, candy.
Taste follows this, with some more pine and more fresh floral and herbal hemp like notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, lingering piney, zesty, floral, herbal.

Very nice. Interesting mix of citric notes, with floral and fresh herbal aromas. Very crisp and refreshing, with a lovely piney finish. Quite unique style example, but a really enjoyable one I would drink again.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Tap at brewery Pours bright orange hue with a small fizzy white head and some decent lacing. Nose is dank c hops all the way big citrus and pine. Undertones of honeysuckle and spice. Flavors are all big piney c hops resinous and somewhat dank. Big dry finish nothing left on the palate. Quite a nice ipa for sure. Maybe a bit less boil hops would benefit the harsh resin. Overall a very clean and well made brew.

JackMandarin (185) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from local Home Bargains (!) store for £1.19 (!)(!) Pours pretty clear. Just off-white head leaving some good lacing. Aroma is great! Sweetly perfumed with candied orange. Over-ripe mango. Juicy pineapple galore. Godd dankness. A whiff of something resinous clinging to the glass. Fresh hutch hay from the malt. Medium body. Sticky and sweet. Marmalade citrus . A growing bitterness coats the mouth. Great balance. Mouth watering finish. Need another sip! Medium to light carbonation. Solid stuff from a brewery that showed me how good beer could be back in the day!....and a complete and utter Bargain at Home!

AntonyWilson (112) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 1, 2016
500ml bottle: Pours a clear golden with a decent white head that persists. Aroma of citrus and pine. A nice resinous taste, not overpowering at all. Medium body with medium carbonation. Bitterness enhances the flavours of the hops. A decent maltiness, despite the colour. Overall a very pleasant IPA.

jerama (50) - SLOVENIA - APR 26, 2016
Pours a dark golden color with a white minimal head. Aroma of citrus, bread, malt with floral notes. Taste of citrus, pine, floral hints and a bit tropical fruit and honey. Tastes different than the previous time we tried it. Bitterness is sharp and below average, but lasts long. Medium body with a bit thicker texture and average carbonation. It may need an update

CacheManyHose (575) - HONG KONG - APR 10, 2016
Drank w Matt before first rehearsal for Payal's wedding dance. Translucent gold with big frothy white head. A lot of honey malt, esp. in the nose. Sweet without being cloying. Some breadiness present but still crisp. Taste has bitter resinous hop bite and lemony lightly spicy grassy finish. Hop character is quite English (very bitter without as much obvious flavour) but this is very good. Especially like the aroma.

HKdIPA (658) - HONG KONG - APR 10, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft at home on a rainy Sunday. Mostly clear golden-amber pour with white dense head. Aroma is juicy fruit hops balanced by honey malt. Taste is hoppier than the Oakham Citra - still a lot of malt that dulls the bitterness, but nicely bittered with some pine/citrus peel. Smooth soft palate. Lingering effervescent bitterness. Exceeded expectations - would get again for sure.
