Ferris (16067) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Candy floss, some resin and sweet malts. Pale gold with a thick bubbly head. Grassy and resin, but very light and refreshing. Medium bitterness and a clean finish. Great flavourful session beer.

Curiously strange beer, but oddly drinkable. Malty-fruity nose. Spicy, floral and grassy hops with hints of tropical fruit, pepper, perfume and hay. Earthy and somewhat funky as well (possibly from the yeast; or maybe from the long voyage the beer took). Malt side has a slightly cloying sweetness at its core (like rock candy), but it’s not overbearing.

Much better than I expected. "Mash Up" kinda suggests "confused" to me, but this beer is anything but. It is a quintessential Epic beer. Floral, citrusy, tropical NZ hops on a light sweet, and perfectly appropriate malt base. After drinking dank and heavy for the last couple of weeks, this light and zesty ale really cuts through. Nice one.

Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Light coloured body with small lasting head. Mildly funky lagerish taste, with some heads. More of a blonde, bit of a dirty blonde. Bottle from FlandersNed.

Light haze on this gold beer. Short pale cream coloured head. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Mild minerals. Nice hops on a fresh tasting pale malt base. A little orange marmalade, tropical fruits, peach. Semi dry finish with a mild bitter linger and a touch of mint.

fiulijn (20938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle from Central City Liquors, Surrey, BC
It says 2011 on the label, I hope it’s not so old. It pours a golden hazy color with medium sized head. The hop aroma is dry, a bit fruity (peach and apricot) and herbaceous, with a sweaty hint in the end. Dry and lean mouthfeel; light malt flavor, with a strong grassy presence; strong bitterness, with soft piney resins and some citrusy fruitiness (oranges mainly).
A good beer, but without the fresh touch.

lupulist (348) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a golden, lightly amber colour with a dense white head. Aromas of earthy, herbal hops and of sweet malts. Tastes of earthy hops, with a malty sweetness that rounds it off. Finish is long and bitter-sweet. Very tasty and sessionable.

Bottle drunk in hotel bought from Regional Wines & Spirits, Wellington
pale amber blonde with resinous grapefruit nose. fairly high carbonation, sweet with lime peel and pineapple in finish. has aged well

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a light golden. Strong aroma of floral hops. The flavour is very earthy hops and has a caramel sweetness mixed in and a little light on the bitterness.
