Sjohnh (105) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Good points: refreshing fruit salad aroma - I got apple, kiwi, grapefruit, citrus. Pine also in the nose and taste. Punchy flavour with a strong bitter finish. Golden orange colour. Weak points: watery body. Where’s the head?

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Fra håndpumpe på Charlie’s Bar, København juli-14: lys, med kort skum. Duft av stikkelsbær og kiwi. Smaken har i tillegg litt furunål. Frisk og god, og den slanke kroppen gjør det enkelt å slurpe i vei. Lang, frisk middels bitter ettersmak.

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fading, white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma takes the British road, crossing (or passing) gooseberry, kiwi, woodruff, biscuit malt, American detour via pine. Taste is mild bitter hoppy, minimally tart, fruity-spicy, gooseberry, woodruff, slightly grassy, herbal and piney. Relatively light body, not much of a finish. Faint DIPA.

rok1024 (1031) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUN 23, 2014
Clear deep orange towards amber appearance, medium head. Very hoppy citrus - grapefruit aroma. Medium bodied, strong taste with intense but rounded bitterness. Good Double IPA.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. clear pale golden pour with a small white head, some retention and lacing. spicy mangoes, perfume, whtie wine, booze, tingling pine, some danky notes, candy-like tropical borderline artificial flavour, doughy pale maltiness. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, balanced spicy-grassy-citrusy finish. interesting english touch to this english interpretation of a dipa.

gildnerk (126) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep gold with a thin, bubbly crown that dissipates into a ring. Somewhat weaker aromas than its little brother (Proper Job), mostly in the citrus direction. Taste is big and sour-hoppy with a nice big mouthfeel, dry finish and very little alcoholic aftertaste. Very decent double IPA.

lesifflebiere (1188) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Bière limpide, mince, et de couleur cuivre vieilli ; la mousse est rare. En nez, ce sont de puissantes notes fruitées qui nous envahit, surtout du melon et de l’ananas. Ces notes se retrouvent aussi en bouche. Petite tendance à être aqueuse, mais assez juste dans l’ensemble ; on l’aurait aussi aimé un peu plus amère. Agréable breuvage estival.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle - 500ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Golden body with a thin white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with flowery and woody hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish.
