olio (7508) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Tap @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Hoppy, piney aroma, faint malts with some orange and mango. Fruity flavor with mild resin and hay notes, feels a bit watery, makes it quite sessionable. Good.

Gbgbrouge (339) - SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 Poured from bottle, hazy amber with huge white head that settles quickly. Aroma subtly flowery with notes of citrus, banana and hay. Taste is bitter but well balanced. Notes of banana , citrus and bread with a sweet aftertaste. Starts off like a pale ale but finishes like a hefe weisse. Peculiar...

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Draught at The Euston Tap, London on 4 Aug 2012. Poured a very hazy golden colour, with a halo of white head. Aroma of wet grass, floral hop and satsumas. Citrus hop flavour, with some herbal and mineral notes. Finish was bitter resin, pine and straw.

Przylus (380) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Jeśli spotkałbym autorów tego piwa, to za użycie sformułowania "West Coast" w nazwie, wyśmiałbym ich w twarz. Barwa złocista, piana średnio pęcherzykowa, niska. Aromat typowego lagera. W smaku oprócz dużego nagazowania, nieprzyjemna goryczka. To piwo nigdy nawet nie stało obok IPA!

esox (1187) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Draught. Murky orange pour, minimal white head. Faint grapefruit aroma, more like acidic berries, slight peaches and floral notes, harsh resins. Hints of raisins. Grainy maltiness, resinous and somewhat harsh bitterness. Some fermentation notes, like perry. Light to medium body, slightly soda-like texture. This was the first pour from the tank and I still wonder if or was OK.

mikeyo1 (416) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle att home. Pours orange with a huge white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy and a bit spicy with backing biscuits, toast and some caramel. Similar taste with balanced and lasting bitterness.
