Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2012
On cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of passion fruit, caramel, a little grapefruit and alcohol. Similar flavours with lots of passion fruit again. Nicely bitter with mild carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel.

RexTalionis (2777) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 03/2014. Pours clear golden in color with a thin white head. Grassy bitter hops, sharp piney notes and forrest in aroma. Sneezing effect here in this. Bitter grassy hops in taste, some sweet maltyness as well. Buttery and notes of hay also. A bit like a hybrid between an IPA and Dortmunder Helles. Grassy, sweet buttery finish. Okay, perhaps more grassy though, but with that slight burnt grainy feeling though.

BenH (2737) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden worth decent white head. Big pungent hoppy aroma, lots of grapefruit, citrus, mango (nelson?). Taste has lots of fruity hop flavours, orange, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, some caramel and biscuit. Decent body with a mildly bitter finish. I like this

Gurthnar (2362) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Aroma hoppy, fruity, earthy. Light caramel. Clear golden to orange colour. Rather short lasting head. Taste is quite surprising with its up front hoppiness. Almost no balancing malt, which also results in a thin body. Fruity, zesty, earthy, moderate bitterness with a definite touch of sourness in the very beginning. Might just be a good beer in some way, but does not fit me at all.

Ktwse (2286) - SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of malts, light citrus, mellow pine. Taste is malty and sweet, light bitterness. Light, smooth body. Not an IPA.
