Christian (11282) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
World Cup Tasting. Amber with a lasting off-white head. Malty aroma with weak grassy hops and a soapy note. Sweetish malty flavour with bread and caramel, some earthy hops and a nice bitter finish.

MSBrindbergs (443) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2014
Flaska från SB. Dimmig mörk bärnsten med noll skum. Här blir man lurad av den fina doften av amarillo och centennial för sen kraschar allt. Mycket klen i smaken, ingen kolsyra och det händer liksom ingenting. Stor besvikelse!

belgis (170) - LATVIA - JUN 11, 2014
Full body toasty taste. Surprising color for IPA. Unique idea about IPA. Dark amber color. Intense maltines almost chocolate.

Stuu666 (3570) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours copper, a bit metallic, toffee, sweet, thin, floral.

abemorsten (2923) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Strömstad. Pours a sparkling copper orange body with a small tanned head. Boiled leaves and pinewood dominate the nose with notes of dried fruit. Sweet, cloying caramel with a stale and lasting bitterness, leaving a heavy and unfresh impression. Best before date is 2014-12-01, but I guess I missed peak.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
ogivlado (5908) - 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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
tfredvik (1208) - 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 (3084) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014

Andy_ (779) - 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.

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.
