Gachupines (954) - USA - MAR 5, 2014
Amber with a decently thick white head. Aroma is strong pine with a touch of resin. Flavor is bright pine well balanced with a pleasant malty sweetness. Finishes clean with a bit of bright citrus. Nice flavors, very well balanced and incredibly easy to drink. Wife: 3.75

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2014
Tap at Craft Cafe Imazato. Sweet caramel nose, overun by a blend of citrus hopping (several of these hop varieties are unfamiliar). Pretty light hazy copper color. Substantial caramel throughout, with a good balance from the bright savory hopping. Medium body, with a rich hop texture. A bit sweetish, but very pleasant. Complex hopping.

Draught pint at Smith Street Taps in Singapore. Slightly cloudy orange amber colour. Medium head, which dissipates slowly. Hoppy pine aroma. Medium carbonation. Citrus fruit flavours - grapefruit, lemon peel, and sweet caramel malt. Medium bitterness. An excellent Double IPA.

esp0r (2135) - NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours redly hazy with a big tanned head. Smell of pine, resins, spice and hints of grapefruit - quite refreshing and inviting. Moderate to medium sweet, distinct pine, woody and spice flavors, juicy tendensies, complex fruity hops and ends off with a heavy piny bitter tail with lots and lots of resins. This is very good stuff

puboflyons (2233) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 19, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle. Copper-amber pour with lingering, foamy cream, colored head. Some haze. Aroma of resin, floral, and roasted malts. As expected hops are more forward. The body is medium to full. The taste is a hop utopia with a lot of resiny and floral characters intermixing with the malts. Big bitter bite to finish and even a hint of fruitiness.

fkoolen (363) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
650ml bottle at home. Beautiful orange, slightly cloudy colour, off-white creamy head. Impressive hoppy nose: green/grassy, floral, citrus and tropical fruits and pine. Big bitter punch in the taste, firm fruity tones with mango, peach, grapefruit and herbal hoppiness. Caramel and toffee sweet, grainy malty backbone. Warming alcoholic burn. Lingering sweet, fruity and bitter aftertaste, dry like an English tea too. Medium carbonation, big body and flavours, oily almost sticky mouthfeel. Very well executed imperial IPA.

ALLOVATE (2476) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2014
At just on chilled and into a chalice. Sparkling, deep amber to copper in body with no visible life. Head builds off the pour to a messy half inch but fades rapidly. Initial honey whiff melts, and I mean melts, into an all hoppy, vinous, lemongrass, camphorous, ’knock your socks off and dig in’ humulus lupulus excursion. There is malt in there but fades and is like the ignored cousin in the corner of a pumping wedding. Eucalypt, bay leaf, Vietnamese mint, lemon peel, slight pine, slight parsley, slight inkling of freshly mown grass and then the tight, bitter fruit coming through like peach, honeydew, guava and Sauvignon grapes. On the palate is it quite medicinal, herbal; bordering a chilled Chinese tea, with minty notes freshening the breath. Quite dry; every part of that aroma grips the palate like a hop soup. Residual, this one dwells long time. Bitter, but not assertive, but this nasty ass IPA lingers way beyond bed time. Body is medial with low, spritzy effervescence. Fruit or any esters are well subdued under the raw hopping. Sour, bitter, tight and tidy. Refreshing? No!, Hoppy? Yes master! Quaffable...., well I am impressed. A Rogue I can drink.., no offence Rogue. Raw, rough and loveable. (65,cL, BB 30/08/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

ChrisFields (79) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours a nice amber gold. Aromas of pine, apricot and citrus. Taste is aspirin, pine comb and behind it all, toasty malt. Bitterness is milder than expected. Full body with mild carbonation. Overall good. I would probably drink it again.
