Scopey (15690) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Ken at a pre-Sour & Bitter hotel tasting. It pours golden orange, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet orange, tangerine, mango, floral, spice and herbal notes (Yerba Mate?). The taste is floral, citrus pith, straw and herbal notes akin to matcha tea, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Doesn’t do much for me.... anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2012

Dry hoppy finish. Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Clear golden with an off-white head. Spicy aroma - quite exotic. Medium-bodied, sweetish fruit and again these fairly exotic flavours - must be the Yerba Maté. The finish is dry. Interesting. 280412 dnstone (3524) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Very crytal-malty aroma. Hazy golden-yellow in color. Not much interesteing to note.
Notes: GABF ’09 Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle pours very hazy gold, thin head. Aroma of pear, apple, some oregano, light floral hop, kind of buttery. Taste of sweet juicy fruit, not very enjoyable. The hops don’t taste old, but I just don’t think this was ever a very good IPA. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
I sort of presumed I wouldnt like this at all, and its better than I expected.
Inch of fluffy head on the pour that disappears quickly. Cloudy rusty colour. The taste is pretty citrusy, but it almost tastes like kombhucha. I think more hops would really help this out. Decent.
