fidelis83 (2441) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Slightly hazy, dark gold pour with a creamy, slightly soapy off white head. Aroma is loaded with pine and citrus, dark toast/light roast and a failry big helping of grassy and garlicky hops. Flavor is loaded with caramel and cereal up front, light toast, mineral notes and tree and berry fruit soon after finished by milds citrus, pine, lots of grass, light perfumey citrus and salty garlic butter and toffee to the finish. Medium body with a soapy, syrupy entry, oily and slightly astringent finish, light, but somewhat sharp carbonation and a pretty strong alcohol burn. Overall it’s a decent IIPA (TIPA?), but after the first few sips the grassy, garlicky hops take over completely and probably ruin the deal for anybody who doesn’t like grassy hops. I don’t mind grassy hops and love garlic, though not in my beer, so... It works out decently for me, still too much garlic, but it seems like a nice beer to accompany a nice, spicy, hot garlicky meal.

Bottled (backlog). Deep orangeish amber colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, grassy and some resiny and wooden notes to it. Flavour is sweet malts, some honey, floral and fruity notes with a nice zesty and quite bitter finish.

Guruhso (604) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber golden with white head. Heavy malty and heavy hoppy. Aroma of citrus, resin/wooden notes, floral, herbal, dried fruit - and toasted, caramel and hay. First try with NZ’s "Green-bullet" and "Pacific gem" hops, which seems spicy and piney. Starts light heavy sweet and finish heavy bitter. Quite alcoholic. Light body and oily texture. A nice one.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, orange, honing. Smaakt fruitig, zoetig, honing, orange. Droge afdronk. Lekker.

hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Draft... Pours clear and amber with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose is crazy-spicy. Too spicy and nearly medicinal. The aroma also features light rations of American biscuits, crackers and overall graininess. Ultra full-bodied and velvety with stinging carbonation. The flavor is harshly bitter and tongue-numbing. The malt bill presents light notes of caramel and English biscuits. Wow - a bit excessive. Not flawed, but not my thing at all.

Very nice beer. Pushing heavier on the barley wine side rather than the hoppy IPA.

Near clear orange pour. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is floral, sweet and bitter finish. Blah blah blah, I hate the character count requirement.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

Pours copper with a big foamy head. A really strong malty aroma. A huge malty kick in the teeth! Amazing.
