Huhzubendah (2823) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
The beer is golden colored and fairly hazy with a small white head. The aroma brings fruit, malt, sweetness, floral notes. A bit out of character for an IPA. Too sweet and lacking big hop chareacter. Overall, this was mediocre. English IPAs just don’t measure up. There, I said it.

Koelschtrinker (12180) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 30, 2012
Weicher, hell hopfiger Antrunk. Die Hopfennoten sind dabei eher gering und steigern sich nicht mehr. Trocken, OK - aber nicht sonderlich interessant. 8/8/11/9/9/8

KyotoLefty (7335) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Bottle at home, thanks to Alex. Very green, very grassy hops in the nose, minerals. Dark gold to pale amber, medium, fine head. Sweet malts, light honey, with huge lemony, grassy, green hops. Sweet orange. Interesting balance arising out of contrast. Smooth, oily body. Slight booze. Good stuff, got better after a couple weeks of mellowing.

EdKing (2095) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle care of beersiveknown. Colour is touch hazy amber, white head. Nose is really soapy. Soap suds soapy. with some grainy, bit of tropical fruit, pine, some green leafy hops. Taste is again very soapy, hop bitter, tropical fruit. Soap taste is a bit overwhelming in this one.

Theydon_Bois (12082) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle at pre Xmas tasting thanks to Steve/BIK - 21/12/12. Hazed light amber with a thin white head that retains well. Nose is soapy, pine, hops, tropical fruit notes. Taste follows nose, grass, tropical fruits, a little over soapy. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. OK - a little over soapy in both nose and taste.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Aroma is mild and the hopping isn’t so noticeable. Dark golden-brown color. Hops hit hard in initial; some honey and malt in mid; deep green citrusy notes in final. Thin-medium body. Well-balanced and solid.

Travlr (15097) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Alex420, grazie a te! Shared with staff and the RB crew at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown. Everyone really liked the label on this one, Nintendo style. The aroma reminded some of Mary Janes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Jane_(candy& others thought of Skittles or Smarties. People liked the flavor better than the aroma, but overall a very drinkable beer..
