Brilliant golden. Super intense hop aroma. Exotic fruity hop aroma--apricot, mango some sprucy hints. This smells delicious. Medium-light body. Bright clean bitterness, shines right through. More exotic hop flavors. This is truly delicious. Big thanks to my buddy Matt for sending this along to me.

Hopmaestro (1097) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2016
You know, sometimes expectations is no good for you? Aroma is sweeter malts, light bread notes and hops with a resinous touch. Taste is pretty solid maltjuice with pine, citrus and resin. I got an almost soapy touch in the aftertaste? Just bordering soapy, but never really tripping over. Solid bitterness.

Bottle share at Cotteridge II as Russian River Blind Pig. Many thanks to Cloin for bringing this hard-to-find IPA back fresh from the US of A. Clear orange, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, floral, celery, herbal hops. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is floral, powdery, toffee, salty, tangy, light fruits with a dry finish. A nice clean IPA. (3.8)

Pyrmir (5198) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2016
Bottle, from backlog. Golden with white head. Aroma has lot of sweet clean malts, bread, biscuit with loads of pine hops. Taste is similar, a clean sturdy malt backbona with a metric shitton of citrus, pine and resin.

On tap, super local. As described, quite hoppy, moderate lacing, low foam. Bitter taste lingers on the tongue, not unpleasantly. Nice surprise, good

JohnGalt1 (1391) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2016
1" bubbly head.. nice cap and a surprising ring of lace.. the brew is only slightly hop-hazed pretty clear honey.. nose is lemon and tangerine zest dominated by pineapple hoppiness.. some grapefruit.. and just enough pale malts. Mirrors the smell identically... huge fruity hop flavors... Kaffir lime leaves.. clean.. yet oily.. just enough pale malt goodness to bring the hops to their full glory... never ever goes over to the bitter side.. just very very drinkable.. body is fairly lite.
