ogivlado (5723) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottled 330ml. -Pale amber coloured, small off-white head, citrusy hoppy nose. Moderate malty, citrusy hoppy and light caramel with notes of spices in rather short dry finish. Not much to say about but to be honest this one is pretty boring brew. Pitty, expected better.

tfredvik (1128) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Quite dark amber to orange body that is clear, with an average-sized, light tan head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma of sweet caramel, lots of citrus and tropical fruits. A good dose of sweet caramel in the flavour as well, also some tropical fruits, grapefruit and pine. A bit fainter hoppy contribution than I had expected from the aroma. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied with a moderate carbonation. A tasty brew, but it wouldn’t hurt with even more hops.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

VastActiv (2846) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014

Andy_ (689) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Rockmore Pub, Viking Grace
Clear copper colored beer with little blonde head. Aroma has pineapple, tropical fruits and resin. Flavor is resiny, fruity and toffeey sweet. Palate is medium full with a quite low carbonation. Finishes with only mild bitterness. I would have guessed this was out of date but the BBE was 7 months ahead. Aroma was good but everything from that on just got worse in the flavor, palate and finish.

SimonTja (267) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2014
Has an awful lot of special malts in this one, for me the malt base makes this really bad, it overtakes the hop presence and just hides it... Let the hops speak in an IPA, this one has weird leathery undertones and as in many of their beers has this cereal feel to it, which I personally don’t like much.

ramboraffe (452) - SWEDEN - APR 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear amber with white head. Aroma is very light. Some sweet tones and some yeast. Taste has a mellow hop bitterness at start, then some almost roasted barley tones and then a striking bitterness with no real carachter but bitter. This is more of an english ipa than american as the brewery describes. And not a particullary good one.

JeyAre (214) - - MAR 13, 2014
Nice slightly hoppy smell and very softly hopped. The color is really nice, maybe missing. Bit of head on top but this is what you usually get with IPAs.. . Right refreshing taste and palate. Could be a very good summer IPA! The bottle was also particularly good looking

Kahuna1337 (41) - Mariehamn, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Amber colour with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet malts and hops. The taste is a little sweet, medium bitterness. Medium body with a nice bitter finish.

aleigator (225) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle from rlgk. Reddish brown color, with a decent white head. Floral, hoppy, refreshing aroma of, lime, grass and hints of malt. Hoppy, wheaty flavor, followed by an uprising bitterness. Bitterness stays in balance with the malts, to overpower them in the end, leaving a long lasting bitterness. Lovely wheat-based beginning reminds me of a fresh "Pilsener", then hoppy limes come up revealing the IPA character of the beer, resulting in an enjoyable bitterness.

Gorgosh (256) - - MAR 1, 2014
Det är glest mellan ljusglimtarna i den svenska ölkultur som stavas massproduktion. St Erik (vem det nu är?) tycks dock vara så pass senil, eller möjligtvis vänligt sinnad, att han inte hoppat på skräplagertåget utan gör i stället briljant öl i stora mängder. Det kommer att löna sig i längden. Ha tålamod i sisådär 200 år till så kommer pöbeln en vacker dag känna igen en bra öl när de ser den.
