Frovigalning (2720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2013
On tap or bottle at Bishops Arms Örebro. Grassy smell with some grapefruit. Very bitter taste with grapefruit peel, grass and citrus. A bit too unbalanced for my taste.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows spicy, herbal and earthy hops aplenty along with some sweet-smelling cookie dough-like malt. Flavours retain the cookie dough characters and herbal, earthy hops. Finishes with an assertive, tongue-coating bitterness. Carbonation could be perhaps a little higher.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours light cloudy golden with a small white head and a slight citrus aroma with a hint of skunk. The skunk has also infested the flavour although i do get hints of a hoppy resinous grapefruit/grass. Would like to try this fresh.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2013
Drucken på cask på Bishop Gustav. Den bästa IPA jag druckigt på cask. Mycket fruktig, främst passion, citron och tropisk fukt. Lite sträv rejäl citrusbeska + fenoler. En riktig utmaning för tungan utan att alls bli för mycket. Bra balans och ren och fin.

Niall73 (1056) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Keg at Pelt Trader. Pours a cloudy straw colour. Nice fresh, grassy, nettle, pine aromas with some tropical fruitiness there too. Light to medium body, quite fizzy/foamy. It's quite sweet and maintains the piney, nettle thing but a caramel sweetness is there too as is a slight citrus bitterness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (8636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2013
330ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Aggressively hopped, quite pungent. Pale, viscosity makes the settling of the head most pretty. Slightly plasticky mashy taste, not quite to brewdog levels, but I’m sure there’s crystal malt stodging this up. Finish is sticky and resiny from the hops, a bit too crystal malty still. This is closer to the APA side of the Pale Ale family. A bit too plasticky and sticky. But drinkable.
