_angst_ (2369) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2012
Draught @ The rover. Pours hazy golden with a creamy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity and herbal with lemon grass, grapefruit juice, crackers, dry soil, grass, pineapple, mango, lime leaves and hints of resinous wood. Taste is bitter and slightly fruity with crackers, gooseberries, lemon balm, lemon grass, green grapes, grass, resinous wood, pine needles, grapefruit juice and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, slightly dry and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and herbal with grapefruit rinds, lemon balm, pine needles, grass, gooseberries, grape skins and bergamot oil. Tasty stuff!

VsXsV (1896) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Draught. Hazy light orange liquid with medium off - white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, weed, citrus, lemongrass, light caramel and biscuit/bread. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of citrus, lemongrass and biscuit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice but a bit boring.

peral2 (561) - SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at The Rover Göteborg! Very refreshing! Maybe the best brittish (sorry BrewDog) IPA I ahd so far. Very much American style with a lot of Hops with nottes ogf citrus. Good!!

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
Poured from keg at Euston Tap, half pint shared with Finn. Unclear, apricot coloured body. Firm lacing. Floral hoppy nose with hints of pumpkin. Resin and pumpkin in the taste profile added by a drop of malty sweetness. Dry bitter fruity ending. Has got its moments of joy. Quite heavy to drink, though (London, 05.11.2012).

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2012
On tap at The Rake, London. Nice looking pour, a well carbonated, bright glowing gold. Nose is sweet and hoppy, gives the impression of potency even though it’s not a double IPA. Body is medium, palate a bit slick. Flavors are hardcore pine and hop resin, bitter all the way with just a perfunctory nod to the sweetness in the nose. Not bad.

SaintMatty (4742) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2012
Draught (Stockholm Beer Festival 2012) - Amber in colour. Grapefruit, tangerine and peach in the aroma. Hoppy, tangy an slightly sweet taste with peach, toffee and grapefruit detected.

NordicV (995) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2012
Gyllengul öl med lätt dimmighet. Vitt skum. Mycket citrus i doften tillsammans med lite exotiska frukter. Beskan i smaken något enahanda för ett riktigt toppbetyg. Lite för mycket grape.

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
På fat. Toner av blommor, ananas, citrus och grape i aromen. Och sen smakas ölen och, ja... det är väldigt gott. Där finns grape, mycket grape, röda bär, ananas, päron. God, mycke god!
