Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity hops with slight malt. Bad deScription for the nice aroma. Flavour is the same, in a boring yet fulfilling way.

Benzai (11052) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle shared with dEnk at his place. Opaque hazy orange color, full sized long lasting, creamy white to off-white head that leaves a fair lacing. Smell lightly malts, very fruity, hops. Taste lightly malts, lots of fruit, hops, decently bitter. Very nice IPA. Medium body and carbonation.

Very nice IPA, quite alike to the other 2012 edition. Grassy, hoppy and fruity. Good one.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 As the other praotnat version, hazy dark amber with a very nice head. Aroma is less fruity and flowery, it seems to have something dusty instead. Hoppy taste again with some dry bitter dustiness.

Countbeer (5509) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Maarten: Medium sized head, vast and thicker in structure, creamy in color. The head changes slowly into a closed lacing. The beer has a hazy to murky deep orange to amber color. Smell creamy peach, some vanilla, hint of nettle, gass, some yeast, apricot and some sour fruit tones (think berries and lemon). Taste is a mix of hops and sour, strange, but actually works out pretty fine: sour fruit, tart, yeasty, than there comes some hops, hop fruits and hop bitters with less to no floral hop tones. Aftertaste is more bitter than sour with some floral tones and yeast. Low to medium carbo, soft light creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. There is this tart ish something in this beer, an infection? Lactic sour? Does taste like it. Not bad, I quite like it. This beer is nothing really more than a mix of hops (fruits and bitters) and the sour lactic thing. Strange for an IPA, but this would make an interesting sour ale.

Borresteijn (5577) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of fruity hops, tangerine, earth, a little liquorice, caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, floral, earthy hops, oranges, nice fruity hoppy bitter finish with a little earth. Light-bodied, just a touch overcarbonated. Tasty.

erickok (4344) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2012
This Willamette version looks similar, with frothy big light tan head. This is also very fruity in aroma, bit more peach and sticky than the tropical fruits of the Cascade only version. Taste is somewhat richer. A hop showcase, but that doesn’t necessarily make a kick ass beer. (33cl bottle traded with Maarten, thanks!)

Idiosynkrasie (5171) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orangey golden colour with huge, frothy, lasting, lacing, off-white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of tangerine, grapefruit, resin. Taste is initially citrusy sourish, biting bitter hoppy with notes of tannic acid, later flat dry grassy; lively carbonated.
