Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 20, 2011
Süß-klebriger Hopfenantrunk, disharmonisch. Der Hopfen beruhigt sich dann etwas und wird angenehmer, das Bier bleibt aber uneinheitlich und nicht sonderlich gelungen. /8/8/9//9

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Cask on my English stag, 15/10/11. Pops MacDrunkeasy was tucking into this one for breakfast. Aroma a 9 of Tropical Starburst, blackcurrant, mango strawberry chew etc.....with something weightier, possibly malty in the background; butter biscuit and ginger. Light alcohol warm overpowered by fresh, filthy, citrusy, blackcurrant-sodden hops. Beer of The Day, obviously.

Jaksmart (357) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2011
Tap @ BBF. Beautiful clear amber color, tiny white head. Aromo is quite hoppy with lots of delicious fruits: peach, pineapple and some syrup. Taste is very sweet in the first notes. Pineapple, apples, orange and peach. Pretty good balance, could use some more bitterness, if you ask me.

Cask at CASK. Sweet and herby hops on nose. Spicy with citrus and fruit cake notes. Warming and chewy.

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2011
5L party keg (RBESG2011, Saturday)
7 fruity hoppy aroma
3 Cloudy flat orange, no head
6 Dull sweet body, sweet malts, sweet fruity hops. Underattenuated.
3 Sweet and flat. Pleasant fresh shpopy finish, but also a bit sickly.
11 Underwhelmed. Flat and ticky. I have to ask either what’s happened to Thornbridge, or what’s happened to this fass?

spkevin (371) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2011
Tap @ BBF ’11. Very intense IIPA. Amber/brown pour. Very bitter with a lot of hops (which is great!). Hints of grapefruit, lemon and other fruits in the taste. And again, very hoppy! It was nice to drink an IIPA at the festival after all the stouts!

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2011
Hazy amber golden beer, cream white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus, grapefruit, pine and apricot. Some caramel and malts. Bitter hoppy flavour, quite a hop bite. Resinous, fruity, pine, citrus. Slight sweetness, some caramel. Finish dry and bitter. Nice.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours hazy light amber, with a decent white head. The nose is sweet citrus, pine, earth and caramel. The taste is pine, resin, big hop bite, oily, leather, underlying caramel sweetness, orange pith, light spice, earth, playdough and alcohol warmth, with a long warming bitter finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Flavoursome and well balanced. A great beer.
