Sohvilla 1/2017. Quite easy, not very aggressively hoppy pale ale. Well balanced anyway.

Nice clear gold color with good head. Aroma of grapefruit rinds and some oxidation. Taste fairly bitter, clean, grapefruit notes all around. Too bad my sample was clearly oxidized, because I got the sense this would be quite good fresh.

lello4ever (923) - ITALY - MAR 24, 2017
Biondo chiara con schiuma evanescente e vaporosa. Aroma piuttosto dimesso erbe e fiori. Una discreta amarezza dei luppoli con punte di agrumi migliora la bevuta. Ben carbonata. Accettabile.

bartlebier (3819) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2017
500ml bbOct2017, kindly double-dispatched by BeardedAvenger, merci! - Short: interestingly conflicted UK bitter/APA crossover that injects dramaqueen pineapple, lime and wet pine US hop oils into an earthy British cereal biscuit body. - enticing sweet ice tea aroma, candied lime and ice tea granules with a distinct cereal sulphuriness of a (floor?)-malted rich UK pale malt. Tastes like lemonade mixed with an English bitter, bitter with citrus pith and dry grain hulls. Also: ginger lemon jelly on digestive biscuits. - Big fan of UK bitters under 5%, and the extra allochthonous hoppiness doesn’t hurt.

rand (1660) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle 500 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Golden blonde, poor in foam and sparkling. Hopped aromas, grapefruit, floral note, zest and tangerine. Like the taste, citrus and zest, pineapple, floal notes and pine. A beer dry and fresh, nothing else.

Nikokaoja (183) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - JAN 29, 2017
29. 1. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Clear IPA with extra hoppiness for the bitterness kick in the aftertaste. Aroma very subdued, probably because of filtration. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus, pine, hops dominate both aroma and taste, but less intense than expected. Good, but less than I expected.
