JorisPPattyn (8331) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2015
Towering, dense off-white head, slowly receding with lacerings over clear amber beer. Bit milky, sweet tubers; bit soupy nose. Not much in the way of hops... Again soupy, spicy. It’s bitter, but not hoppy in my book. Some background sweet malts. Metallic-bitter finish; acquiring a bitter almond flavour. Astringent, medium bodied, slick. Pfui..

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Hazy orange beer with nice fluffy head. Aroma has tropical sweet fruits, citrus fruits, lemon and grapefruit. Really nice citrus notes, tropical fruits are well present. Maybe some sweet berries. Really high carbonation and medium carbonation.

jzi (48) - POLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Wygląd: Puszysta, lekka i drobno ziarnista piana. Bardzo obfita. Utrzymuje się do końca. Barwa piwa - bursztynowa, lekko zmętnione. Aromat: mango, pomarańcza, cytrusy, słód, lekka żywica. Smak: Średnia goryczka o żywicznym/leśnym charakterze. Pod koniec zamienia się w słodycz. Cytrusy, słodowa pełnia. Piwo dość treściwe, raczej słabo wysycone.

Holmen2 (1653) - NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 17.05.15. Unclear pale orange. Uneven, off-white head. Powerful aroma and taste of bitter citrus. Some marmelade and tropical fruits. Also a hint of bitter pine shoots. High bitterness.

Holmen1 (3288) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Flaske (batch 0154) fra Holmens importkoffert, delt med Ovesen 17.5.: lett uklar kobber med film/gardinskum. Intens humlearoma med massevis av citrus, furunål, tropiske frukter og malt. Smaken følger opp - dette er en meget kompetent american ipa, og du trenger slett ikke ha hatt en tøff dag på jobben for å nyte denne i små slurker. Bitterhet som minner om engelsk marmelade i den lange avslutningen, og i de siste slurkene var det gress som domminerte .

Bottle from Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Bright gold pour with a white head. Aromas of pineapple, nectarine, bags of tropical fruit. Long, intense fruit infusion up the old nasal passage. Fruit laden flavours of pineapple, mango and tangerine. Long, sweet fruit linger. Good stuff.
