SaintMatty (7650) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2014
Cask (Devonshire Cat, Sheffield) - Golden in colour. Earthy hops and dried fruit in the aroma. The taste is quite strange with earthy hops and biscuity malt being most noticeable. Am not sure if it’s meant to be like this, but it’s a bit odd.

Very hazy gold beer, good off white head. A few dark particles in the head and the beer. Light semi soft and semi dry palate. Minerally light malt dominates the hops which present mild grapefruit bitterness and a little orange peeping through. Finishes crispy and dry with a mild bitter hop aftertaste. Goes down easy.

TEJA (3392) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle at Monks. Nice big head that lasts. Big english hop taste with a plesent bitterness combined with some maltiness. Little too high carbonation.

3.3
ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2008
Bottled at Monks Cafe, Stockholm. Pours out in a cloudy orange colour with a frothy lasting off white foam. Quite sharp hoppy aroma of mature oranges, lemon-zest and wet grass with sweetish notes of apricots and dust. Medium-bodied with a strong tangy orangey hop flavor with notes of yeast, dust, straw and nectarines. Grainy mouthfeel. Long bitter finish of crackers, nuts, wet grass and orange-peels with acidic undertones of immature nectarines. A robust fruity ale which has signs of infection.

2.4
yngwie (17367) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle, shared by fonefan. A hazy, orange beer with a small beige head. Dusty, citrusy aroma, but with enough malt and hops to save it from being totally off. Some citrusy-sour flavors, with fruity hops and bitterness doing the rest of the job. Malty flavors almost completely hidden by the others. Medium body. Fruity and bitter finish. Sure, it’s a drinkable and quite refreshing beer, but very boring and not very IPA-ish. (080822)
