Vignale (1992) - 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 (1386) - 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 (9152) - 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.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a golden yellow with no head. Dunno what happened there. Nose has a hoppy sweetness about it. Taste is quite sweet and has a chewy caramel maltiness about it. Not much fruitiness about this one. Not too bad but overall a quaffer at best.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. This one didn’t work. Very sweet and unbalanced. Too sweet. Some dried fruits are washed over and it’s too muddled. Average
