3.1
Panzuriel (2389) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Appearance: Median amber. Slightly hazy. Firm head of small white bubbles.
Nose: Citrus with some tropical fruit and maybe a smidge of herbal hops.
Taste: Melon, citrus and pine. Trending a bit resinous and grassy. Decent bitters throughout
Body: medium with good carbonation.
Parting thoughts: Solid, above average IPA from champion. No surprise.

orbit (262) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2017
Taste is way too chemical for a nice craftbeer, it seems some toxic got lost in the water supply

3.3
Braudog (6852) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2017
Can. Pour with a thin body, little-to-no head. It also drinks with a surprisingly slim mouthfeel. But this has a nice, dry, cloying, earthen hoppy character. Hides its 9% quite well. (#6824, 11/6/2017)

3.6
tricksta_p (5223) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2017
Can at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Fruity and malty aroma with orange and some pine resin. Flavour is above moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Not a great IIPA, but still a fine and easy hoppy citrussy beer. Not bad.

3.4
thegreenrooster (4585) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pour is a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is a fruity and floral hop. Flavor is a melon hop with a little honey malt sweetness. A little sweetness and a little bitterness but just enough hop characteristics to make this palatable. Decent beer but not a huge hop to make this more than a above par DIPA.

3.7
Inoven (987) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Blik gedeeld door Benzai. Goudgeel helder bier. Aroma is hoppig. Smaak is zoet en ietsje kruidig. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

Benzai (16758) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017

TomHendriksen (881) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Blik gedeeld door Benzai, geprobeerd met Inoven. Het is een helder geel bier met een dunne witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een hoppige dennenachtige geur. De smaak is vol, hoppig en dennenachtig. Erg lekker!

3.4
olio (10592) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2017
355 ml can.

Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Citric fruity aroma, orange, piney notes, hops and resin. Flavor is bitter and oily hoppy, orange and citrus, subtle caramel and malts. Slightly watery feel overall, good bitterness and fairly fruity though. Some alcohol comes through too. Not as bad as the score gave impression of, but not great.
