bottled, big thanks to adam. hazy burnt oragne colour with a lingering uneven head; aroma if somewhat musty, hints of white grapeskin and pine; somewhat chalky, out-of-kilter bitterness, peachy malt, lightly gluggy; doesn’t quite work for me

Pours hazy orange/amber with a large, creamy head. Nose shows lots of resinous, piney hops, citrus, orange blossom, grapefruit and some peach. Also plenty of caramel malts to back it up. Lots of resinous pine upon tasting, too bad the fruit aspect doesn’t transfer through quite as well. Lots of big caramel malts come in as well. Does have a medicinal/astringent herbal character to it. Overall its pretty good. not a big fan of over malted IIPA’s but this one kinda works out.

Ysok02 (418) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
Robe ambre, belle mousse. Nez typé sur des notes d’écorces d’agrumes, houblon, pointe pétrolée. Bouche à l’attaque ample, superbe fruit, très bel équilibre et longue finale à la fois complexe et rafffraîchissante. Une très belle IPA à déguster en fin de soirée

Piwo dostarczył... oczywiście Hopester. Kolor ciemnomiedziany, z fantastyczną, kremową, długo utrzymującą się pianą. Aromat bardzo intensywny - tropikalne owoce, głównie mango. W smaku spora goryczka, ale pozostawiająca przyjemny posmak w ustach. Do tego tropiki i moc przypraw. Mocy nie czuć zupełnie. Bardzo dobrze skomponowane i ułożone piwo. Super!

solidfunk (5476) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Some citrus and a little smoke bin this. Lots of resin. Hazy amber pour. Some caramelized malt. Bittersweet finish. A little odd. Tap at Churchkey.

rouhlas (1347) - GREECE - JUN 20, 2015
From tap. Hazy amber orange color with off white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, pine, some citrus fruity notes and caramel. Sweet and heavy bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2015
A little murky looking. A very interesting beer, way outside of the style that it says on the bottle. A thick, muted, herbal hop character. In the mouth it has major sugar going on. A pretty good bitterness in the finish. Weird.

Acid303 (496) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUN 19, 2015
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours dark orange with medium white frothy head..."be careful with the sediments". Intense hoppy aroma, mostly on the tropical fruit side. The flavour is really balanced, as well as the palate. One gets malts and hops over and over until the end. No alcohol notes at all, very good carbonation. Cheap and fantastic, just the sediment detail needs to be fixed (depends on the bottle I guess).

Torrefacto (960) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
color melocotón turbio con espuma canela compacta. Aromas, algo débiles, de fruta naranja, herbáceos y pino. Cuerpo medio, maltoso. Sabor de mandarina y final de amargor intenso, herbáceo y seco.
