TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2012
Can from World Beers. Hazy gold pour with a lot of sediment at the finish. Short white head with decent retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is balanced: citrus and malty light fruits – very pleasant. Medium-heavy body and moderate carbonation. Oranges, apricots, tea, biscuit and pine. It has characteristics of some of my favorite IPAs, but in small amounts. Finish is quite bitter, which may be a function of age or distance or storage conditions. Surprisingly good and well-balanced. If I could get this at a decent price it would be in regular rotation.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Can (sampled in Kyoto)
Hazy orange color, medium-sized white head. Gooseberries, overriped mango in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of gooseberry bushes in the flavor, nice piney-fruityness. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice strong ipa from can.

Amber orange pour. Big off white head. Lacing. Aroma of melon and roses. A little of the flowers come through strong with some pepper.

Kauge (67) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2014
Can from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department. BB was due in June which explains the € 1,60 price tag (I think I did buy it on the last day of June). Pours a clear, light amber with huge, frothy, white head - retains nicely, good lacing. Aroma is a pungent mix of citrusy and resinous, floral, and slightly biscuity (is that Simcoe in there?). Taste... well, it’s a (grapefruit seed) bitter hop bomb. Also a bit biscuity and yeasty. Light to medium body. Soft to medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Stong, long lasting bitter finish, slightly spicy. Pretty good!

StilleStorm (672) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
DWG; Pours hazy golden orange with a fading off-white head. Nose is light malt and soap, add light useal. Taste is moderate sweet, bitter and somewhat lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

KeefOz (854) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Tasted 7/6/2014. Poured a cloudy golden honey colour with a few millimetres of white froth that diminished quickly to a collar. Laced poorly. Carbonation low with medium sized bubbles. Aroma dominated by sweet fruity hops; very nice. Taste defined by a very strong hops bitterness which was quite biting/sharp up front. Light to medium body. Lingering bitterness with a bit of a tart finish.

skortila (4435) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Canned. 5cl sample. The aroma has little citrus, sweat and is mostly a bit undefined. Bit hazy, amber coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter and then, not much there, perhaps some grass, sweat.

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
Can at tasting. Aroma is fruity, somewhat sweaty, some cream, buttery, floral and slightly messy. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly creamy and a bit strange.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Kveldens tredje japanske boksøl på Mandag i annen denne nydelige maikvelden: en ipa på 7% er kanskje i overkant for stilen. Det virker som de har brukt mye bitterhumle men lite aromahumle. Kvass i smaken, mye gress. En 50-50 blanding med den foregående (Yona Yona) var et vellykket privat ekseperiment.
