SlovakSniper (4617) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Une blonde embrouillée à souhait. Une mousse qui s’efface très rapidement en laissant derrière elle une fine dentelle. Un nez de pin, de résine, de malts, d’orange et de zestes d’agrumes. Un goût de fruits ronds et jaunes, de savon et d’huiles de conifères. Une bouche huileuse et modérément pétillante. Une finale fruitée et forestière avec une touche de poudre ou de poussière. Best Before 31.08.16. 50 cl. Amusante.

alteregoo (668) - POLAND - APR 1, 2016
Piana obfita, niezbyt ładna, szybko opada przypominając przy tym "mydliny".Barwa złota, opalizująca. Aromat nie jest intensywny, odrobina cytrusów, ananasa, moreli, białego winogrona i ziół. W smaku wytrawne, jest może delikatna słodycz białych owoców (liczi, winogrono, jabłko), mineralność i nafta w afterteasie. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, dość "tępa", w typie mniszka pospolitego. Wysycenie średnie, lekkie w odbiorze, chwilę po połknięciu sprawia wrażenie, jak by na języku pozostał wosk...
Przeciętne IPA, nie do końca w deklarowanym stylu West Coast głównie za sprawą nikłego zapachu. Również goryczka nie powala, jedynie dość wytrawny charakter pozostaje w zgodzie ze stylem.

ciocanelu (835) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 31, 2016
Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is juicy and fruity with overripe peach, apricot and even a bit of banana. Taste starts fruity and balanced but gets bitter on the finish with earthy, resiny flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Indeed, it’s a true west coast style IPA, a really good one.

Sjohnh (636) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Light gold, plenty of white head and lacing. Aroma has passion fruit, some caramel, mint and something vegetal. Medium body, oily, medium carb. Fruit salad taste, bitter finish, decent malt body inbetween.
