Travlr (21167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle from the source. Murky chestnut color, huge, thick tan head with good retention. I can smell this baby from across the room - lots of citrus and floral notes going on, and some rising bread dough. Taste is light pine resin, grapefruit rind, lime, nice malt balance. Good stuff.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark, hazy orange with a large, frothy offwhite head, which clings to the glass like its electrostatic. Massive fresh fruity hop aroma. Man these guys knows how to hop a beer. Big on citrus, apricots, some resinous and spicy notes. Some malt sweetness in here too, not caramelly but not far from it. More burnt sugar, but it’s fairly faint. As expected, a hefty hop punch, but it’s not extreme. The sweetness balances it out nicely. Dry finish though. Doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Medium bodied, carbonation is pretty mellow. Solid, drinkable IPA.

2theraise (7) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 14, 2011 does not count
Aroma: floral and yeast. After a bit great floral herbs hops Wonderful. Appearence: amber, orange, cloudy. Frothy white head. Taste: At first light sweet, but soon after heavy bitter, but really weel balacend. Palate: medium to full body, nice carbonation, bitter finish. Really enjoyed, as soon as you finish the first glass you want another one, and then again. The label says "with uncontrolled use of american hops" and at first let me think it was the usual italian microbrewers experiment. I fear it because micro italian brewers usually exaggerate in strange aromas and tastes. But not this, it’s great, very balanced.

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
Au fût @ Moeder Lambic. Ambre claire, mousse blanche. Arôme houblonné/citron et résineux de pins avec un clin d’œil aux IPA américaines. Au palais, cette bière est légèrement houblonnée allant sur le pin et le citron, on y note aussi cette balance de malt/caramel qui tend à prendre un peu le dessus. Le fini reste sec et finement amer tout en conservant cet aspect citronné.

Forcina (52) - Bellinzona, Rome, Brussels, SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2011
Andrò contro il giudizio comune, ma a me non è piaciuta affatto. L’ho trovata estremamente piatta, banale e insignificante. La riassaggerò.

JorisPPattyn (9379) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2011
Very good, cream-yellow head, slowly collapsing over hazed amber beer. Fruity hops, cakey malts, aromas of lytchee, orange, rosewater, pink grapefruit and rhubarb. Bitter, near-metallic, but yet fruity hopflavours & -oils. Grapefruit, orangepeel, but also slightly peanuts or Brazil nuts. Gets quite a bit earthy, later, even a bit of cacaopowder - melanoidins? Medium bodied, quite slick. Really nice, but not spectacular.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
Un pronunciato profumo di agrumi, molto piacevole. Un bel colore ambrato-aranciato e un cappello di schiuma beige che lascia tracce sul bicchiere mano a mano che diminuisce. All’assaggio è subito preponderante l’amaro dei luppoli. Ma è un amaro piacevole che non disturba. E’ molto beverina e spinge a berne subito ancora. Poco frizzante e con un finale in cui resta la piacevolezza dell’amaro e poco alcool.

caesar (6600) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled. Clear ruby color, short head. Nice hoppy aroma, bit piney, hint of grapefruit. Decent bitter taste, hint of rye, caramel.
