Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy copper with millions of tiny floaties and an average size lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, a touch buttery, along with caramel malt. Flavour of hops foremost followed by caramel malt, citrus fruit and a huge bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good.

500ml bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus, courtesy of jerc. Cloudy light orange with a small off-white head - floaties. Mild aroma, leafy, lemon zest, a bit of buttered popcorn. Taste is very bitter, but generic bitter - I swear I got chicken fat. Average body, strong astringency, decent carbonation, weird finish. Not bad, but ... odd.

500ml bottle. Pours a copper orange with an ample off white head. Aroma is complex hops. Taste is dominated by hops. Mostly earthy and grapefruit but a little pine and herbal hops too. Kind of a grainy straw finish after the hops fade. Body is full but crisp, very satisfying. Overall, my only regret is that the nature of the fresh hopping limits how much of this can be made available each year.

2011-12-16. Crisp golden orange body, nice foamy off-white head. 3+ Pleasant hoppy flavour, lightly grassy, nice citrus and lemon touches, straw, light green leafy touches, grapefruit and lemon in the finish grows as you go. 7+ Nice hoppy aroma, interesting, sort of lemony grassy hops. 7+ Smooth average plus palate is fairly effervescent. Rather nice, refreshing. Bottle via trade with OKBeer

RemiVL (2) - Moncton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 5, 2011 does not count
Really enjoyed this one. It’s not sitting in front of me so I may not be able to describe it as well as I should but it has a nice taste with a lasting flavor that is a perfect balanced bitterness.

500ml bottle into a tulip. Clear copper pour with a fluffy eggshell head. Held on to this to see what a little age would do to the fresh character. The few months it was in the cellar gave the malt a chance to come up and dominate the nose with a solid piney hoppiness in the back. The mouth is still solid hops with a good bitter snap.

Had my last one tonight. good stuff. good carbonation and good colour extraction from the malting. slight orange haze but mostly brown in colour. super fresh, has an almost un-pasteurized feel to it. decent hop aromas. the palate is loaded with hoppy pine cones and a decent body. good stuff.
