Rune (8180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
Small glass, draught at Bishops Arms in Luleå. Low, white patchy surface. Spotty lacing down the glass. Unclear golden coloured body. Sweaty hops on the nose. Prominent hop driven flavours of peach, pine, grass and semi-dry malts. Bitter finish. Nice, a bit heavy to dink though (24.05.2014).

djoeye (1572) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Draught: Hazy golden yellowish body, light off white head. Spruce, pine, fruit-peel-malts to the nose. Strong fruity hops to the tongue, roasted fruity malts, wood, ash, resin, ananas (pineapple). As a solid IPA, I assume. Well bodied the IPA hoppy way, ok carbonation. Finishes heavy bitter, but solid, and lingering. (On Tap@The Bishops Arms (Luleå) Sat24May2014)

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy golden-yellow coloured with citrus and tropical fruit flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and bitter pine on the finish. Bottle Conditioned.

Ragnampiza (493) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 14, 2014
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons, served in a nonic pint glass. Bottled on 28-01-2014. Pale sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a small, creamy, persistent white head. Good lacing. On the nose tropical fruits, citrus, pine resin, a hint of caramel malts, slightly earthy. Big astringency during the first sip, not too heavy on the bitterness side, very fruity and citrusy. Again quite resinous in the aftertaste, with just a little hint of the alchool. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Clearly not extremely fresh being 4+ month old, but it’s still a pretty solid IPA.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 28 March 2014) Golden amber colour, hazy, with frothy white head. Fruit, malty nose with notes of citrus, peaches and tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, passion-fruit, peaches and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. Another rock solid IPA from Kernel, quite fruity this one. Very nice.

JanEric (1016) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Tap at bierfestival Groningen 2014. Earthy aroma’s, urine-ilke. Fortunately it drinks a lot betterf than the smell. Nice taste, refreshening, not too bitter. Good one.

JohnCook101 (330) - - APR 4, 2014
Another great IPA from The Kernel. Slightly earthy, plenty of citrus, some mango, a little pine. Sweetness and bitterness well balanced. Medium bodied, slightly slick. Great.

danlo (1216) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
330ml bottle. Orange amber colour, foamy white head leaving some lacing and aroma of woody hop, floral citrus, pine. Taste is malt caramel along with spicy, woody notes and some tangy grapefruit & pine bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry earthy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

rlgk (11026) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Somewhat hazy pale golden beer eith a nice offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, yeasty notes, cream, citrus, grapes, some pine. Hoppy floral flavor, pine, herbal, earthy notes, grassy, some nettles. A bit strange, below par for this brewery.

Lowenbrau (1982) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 28, 2014
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 28-03-2014.
In short: a fruity bitter ale.
Pours hazy orange-dark gold with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Fruity, peachy aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitterm fruity, peachy, mango, some citrusy. Very enjoyable.
