rouhlas (1967) - GREECE - FEB 11, 2016
330 ml bottle at home from trade with Douberd! Thanks Christos! Light hazy orange color with white to off white head. Nice hoppy and malty aroma, citrusy fruity, tropical fruity notes, pine, grass, caramel, light alcohol, some yeasty notes. Heavy bitter taste in the beginning, then it becomes more balanced, sweet and bitter like the aroma. Medium oily body with average carbonation.

MarkoNm (1997) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 30, 2016
Pours a hazy, dark orangey-amber color, topped with a gushing big off-white head that goes away relatively fast. Initial fruity nose, followed by much more dominant malty profile - biscuity and resin presence, some dry fruits. Later on a bit unpleasant medicine nose. Malty sweetness upfront, a bit of a fruity feel. Decent hoppy bitterness in the finish. Some alcohol, not too excessive and quite lasting aftertaste and also quite herbaly. Quite strong feel to it.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Tasted at the Nederlandse Bieren Festival Delft Wintereditie. Fruity aroma, floral and smooth. Quickly dissipating flavors full of hops. Very easy drinkable, as if it only has 5% ABV. Dangerous. Lovely.

Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2015
Dutch DIPA shared by Craftmember, cheers! Medium sized, cream white, stable head over a deep amber beer with coppery hue, clear at first but lightly hazy with deposit. Aroma of C-hops and malt, as expected from a DIPA: blood orange, toasted bread, sundried tomato, rosehip, pine needles, earthy accent. Crisp onset, clean fruitiness, redcurrant, orange, hop bitterness already apparent, minerally and salty edge, lovely and supple malt sweetness, caramelly, toasted in the end, where a wave of aromatic, citrusy and at the same time deeply bittering and drying hops brings perfect balance. A beauty.

Fin (8859) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle at Klooster, Netherlands, Thursday 8th October 2015. Tasting like a hoppier version of Orval, this is fruity and with and a nice tang bitter but not massively so. Chatted with the bartender here and gave him a little of this to try we (i.e. - us and bartender) both felt it shouldn’t be like this, however it was really interesting, me and Loz loved it, for those looking out for this it’s batch 317 this isn’t meant to be like this but it works, it’s a sort of ramped up Orval.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A nice hoppy, flowery aroma. The clear orange beer has a medium white head. A great soft bitter taste. What an IPA! Medium carbonated
