dnicolaescu (1622) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 19, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks! Look:: hazy amber-red, light tan-orangey frothy to creamy head. Aroma:: strong fruity hops - blackberry, ripe pine-apple, tropical fruit and just a touch of resin, a healthy malt backbone - like a caramel and cream desert. Taste: again, strong sour-and-sweet fruit balanced by rich caramel and a strong but soft bitter finish. Excellent!

Habanero (3694) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, amber with a large, lacing off-white head. Aroma of caramel, orange flowers, apricot, herbal and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up a little more dry and solid bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and average carb. An excellent DIPA.

Vignale (2983) - 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.
