Cuso (5988) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark amber colored beer with thick persistent off-white head. Strong citrus hoppy aroma with caramel. Fruity hoppy taste with caramel and solid malty backbone. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

Vignale (2540) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Disig, bärnstensfärgad, stort bestående smutsvitt skum. Stor grapehumledoft och tropisk frukt, men också något muggigt beskunket i bakgrunden. Väldigt kraftigt humlat med beskunkna bismaker som resultat. Dessa försvinner till stor del vid lite luftning. Kex, kolakakor, karamell, grapeskal, apelsinsaft, metall, fruktcocktail. Riktigt kraftig beska. En relativt stiltypisk tung amerikansk DIPA. Maffig men också med störande bismaker. Godkänd men sknar en hel del för att vara riktigt bra.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
Dark hoppy taste (as Nelsom hops) Delicious creamy. Imagine Belgians can make such a hoppy beer.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Citrus, tropical fuit and a suggestion of sourness are the initial aromas. A clear mahogny pour with a rapidly disappearing white head and no lacing. The taste is overall bitter, almost astringent, with hints of fruit sweetness mid-palate with an almost pepper like finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, meh. After the promise of aroma, the taste is somewhat disappointing. P

uckelman (393) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Pours hazy amber, medium off-white head. Aroma is piney, peppery, and alcoholic. Bitter, but really dominated by the alcohol. Heavy body. Dry finish.

sarauckelman (267) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Hazy, muddy peach color, with creamy head; bubbles are of disparate sizes. Aroma of citrus (especially lemmon), then hops -- very pleasant. Taste starts very caramelly, almost cloying, leading to the bitterness of an IPA but ending again on a caramlized sugar note. Strange for an IPA. Main flavors on the tongue are bitter and alcohol.
