Many thanks to andrew_drinks for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Wonderful hoppy aroma. Starts fine hoppy, modest sweet, more and more spicy notes. Light dry-woody background. Well balanced dry hoppy finish. A good one!

_angst_ (2622) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2014
Bottle shared at the Colin and the Vinings tasting. Pours hazy reddish orange with a small fraothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty and tiny fruity with dark bread, biscuits, freshly cut grass, honey, pine needles, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, lemon hard candy and peaches. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter and slightly fruity with biscuits, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, red apples, lemon zest, orange zest, passionfruit, peaches and soil. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny fruity with toasted cereal, biscuits, grapefruit rinds, unripe tropical fruits, apple skins, grass, pine and soil. Simple yet quite good...

Theydon_Bois (7959) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, from Ales By Mail, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white swirl atop the glass. Nose is orange pith, light honey, straw, toasty malt. Taste comprises much the same, sweetish tones, mandarin, bread dough, light honeycomb, hop notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok, kind of like a not too hoppy APA with a glob of bee jizz thrown in!
