yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2006
Tasted 21/12/2006. Happy birthday Shona. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s latest shipment. Deepish end of pale gold, with a touch of haze from the dash of yeast I let through. Soft airy white head Strong esters on the nose, hints of pear and pollen, and a huge minerally dry-hop aroma. Lolly-like malts and old oranges also make an appearance. Then in the mouth its all pithy bitter oranges and burtonised water... very pithy, very minerally, very hoppy... until an extremely long, long, lingering bitter finish. Not harsh bitterness but pretty strong. A touch of yeast astringency in the mix too. Yum. Headstrong IPA, in the Burton Bridge mould.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2006
Bottled at Plain Kitchen, Gothenburg. Pours clear, golden-orange, with a small, off-white head. Fruity hops, pine, resin and tropical fruits in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy and fruity, with mango, hops and pine. Slightly astringent, medium body. For a English ESB, it is very well hopped. Almost too hop-dominated. (060824)
