PalCabral (162) - - JAN 11, 2013
75cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy light orange, with a layer of foam that sets as a thin vail on the beer. The consistency makes it look like a belgian wit beer in haziness. The aroma is breathtaking, citrus like you sometimes get from a really stronglyl late hopped american beer. The taste is a great balance between the yeast, bringing in fruity tunes, and the hops with their citrusy and piney bitterness. It is a great beer, this one. Contreras makes good beers, this is almost at the level with the Mars beer. Lovely.

Bontus (793) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle 33cl at "streekbieren" event. Not really from my area, but definitely my style of beer. Pours golden, aromatic hopnose, not a true exotic explosion but still nice. Clean bitter palate, nothing harsh, long finish. Good IPA.

minutemat (5134) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours misty gold, overly large white head. Aroma is fresh and floral. Taste is clean, smooth, lightly sweet Belgian blonde yeast, bready with a light fruity hop edge. Easy-going.

Iznogud (3599) - CROATIA - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle, 750 ml from Beergium. Shared with rest at the grand tasting 11/2016. Pours cloudy yellow with medium creamy white head. Malty, light fruit, average yeast, bit spicy. Light to moderate sweetness, thin. Havent expected much, but still a bit of disappointment.

janubio (770) - SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
Pours a deep orange-amber colour, with medium head and good retention. Sediment is present. It keeps a layer and a compact lace. Lots of bubble exploding. Aroma of tropi9cal fruits, clove, oranges, chocolate. Medium t light body, cider like palate, good carbonation. Taste of chocolate, oranges, vanilla, spices. Strange, kind of a cross between an IPA and an Weissbier.

mateuszk (2668) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Draught. More blond to me than ipa. Golden in colour, clear with solid head. Aroma of malt, caramel, flowers and light spiciness. In taste malty sweet, floral with no sign of bitterness. Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Overall it was pleasant drink.

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2016
Oranjegeel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht friszuur en fruitig en licht hoppig bitter met iets van sinaasappel en grapefruit. Mooi in balans.

Bottle. Pours light golden with a thick white head which is pretty solid. Quite some malty caramel in aroma along with floral aroma, some orange and tart. Decent palate, though somewhat thin. Medium carbonation, bitter finish, not very long. Flavour is flowers, tart and orange. Quite good.
