Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2012
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Slightly hazy golden to copper color. Tropical fruity aroma with mango, peach, pine, dank and some nutty malty notes in the background. Dryish bitter flavor, initially with taste of nutty malt backbone and then tropical fruits (grapefruit, mango and pine) towards finish. Medium body with oily mouthfeel. Good drinkable IPA.

hopbomber (109) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Keg@ Euston tap, wow this smells fruity instant whiff of lycees and grapefruit gonna enjoy this very hoppy with sharp pine overtones bit of a pissy yellow colour. Drank 2 half’s of this and couldn’t taste complexity in second the hops perhaps numbed my mouth. Will seek of bottle of this fine ale.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - DEC 8, 2012
Chiara, poca schiuma poco persistente, Aroma intenso di frutti esotici, In bocca tornano i frutti esotici prepotenti molto di più del sentore di caramello presente ma non troppo, quindi un’imperial ipa leggermente atipica ma di gran impatto! Retrogusto lungo ottimo e molto molto persistente!

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2012
50cl bottle, BB 05/05/2013. Dorée, col blanc crémeux. Arôme est fruité et houblonné avec un bouquet tropical très agréable. Palais présent ce profil type de Thornbridge sur un usage très agréable des houblons. Ces derniers oscillent entre résineux, pin, tropical-mangue avec une pointe d’amertume d’agrumes. Le tout conserve juste le niveau idéal de malt entre cara et biscuité léger avec au fini une pointe d’épices houblonnées. Encore une très bonne bière qui avec la Kipling et Jaipur offrent vraiment un bel exemple d’IPAs.

esox (1014) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottled. Yellow beer with a frothy head and some lace. Juicy hop aroma has passion fruit, pineapple, some grape gruits and piney notes. Balancing, biscuity and slighty caramelly malt aroma. Bitter flavor with tasty and well balancing biscuit/caramel sweetness. Long lasting bitter finish with enjoyable biscuit maltiness. Soft and smoot texture. Tasty IPA.
