mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical - floral fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and some floral fruitiness, light piney - citrus hoppyness. Fruity IPA - could use more bitterness (and less caramel).

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 2, 2014
The head is medium. It smells fruity, peach, melon, hoppy, honey, great. The taste is more boring, flat-malty, hoppy, watery, bit bitter. Aroma top, taste flop.

RexTalionis (3233) - 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.

culchiem (3148) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold with a thin head. Aroma is fruity hop. Flavour is a nice mix of fruity sweet and bitterness, peach and apricot with a growing bitter palate.

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.

ALLOVATE (2719) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, pastel yellow and still. Head off the pour holds; snow-white and daubs the glass well. Strong, dried herb and butter note atop hints of fresh baked bread, honey and almonds. Bready, sweet and a little cloying on the palate - OK itís over date, but this drinks like itís a year over date. Light bitterness is overdone by the yeasty notes. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach. Not much else. Forgettable. (33cL, BBE 04/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)
