Rough day at work? Crack open a Five O’clock Shadow and be at one with your stubble. This American IPA is the real Desperate Dan of the beer world, hoppy uncompromising and goes well with a cow pie. Embrace your inner cowboy. Yee Ha!

British IPAs are definitely catching up. Nice hop hit and bitterness, deliberately unbalanced, tons of flavour. Slightly watery mouthfeel for me but still a really nice IPA.

JackMandarin (214) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from Drinksmonger, Bruntsfield. Pours hazy. Burnt orange in colour. Aroma is a little muted. Bit of straw. Jammy. Orange musk. Taste has caramel and bread notes but is quickly overtaken by a drying bitterness that comes on strong. Good length of finish with juicy citrus that comes out dry. Creamy carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Quite sticky. Alcohol is present but works. Good.

77ships (7830) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
330 ml. bottle drank @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria. Bottled on 03/15. Batch 0171. Pours very hazy orange, big white head. Nose is very murky orange peel, very dry, dry fruits bitter with lots of yeast. Taste is harsh bitter with no balance & plenty of yeast, raw bitterness almost reminiscent of quinine tonic, very bitter dry aspirin, dried peel & big yeast. Just harsh & overly yeasty really. Dough. Body is overly bitter & dry + overly yeast. Heavy yeast, gives it yoghurt-like yeast. Not sure if age plays a big role or it just wasn’t my thing. It still had a long way away from the BBF date.

dnicolaescu (1972) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Hazy golden with a white head. Sweet citrus aroma with some strange smoky notes. The taste is rather dry, very little malts, the resiny zesty bitterness takes over right from the beginning. Simple.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2015 Od razu czuć, kto robił to piwo. Porządnie nachmielone, pięknie rozchodzi się po kubkach smakowych. Chce się więcej. Kolejny kufel. Nie zmieniam zdania.
