Vili (245) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear golden pour with minimal white head, average lacing. Aroma is fresh spruce, resin and bread. Taste is heavily bitter, fresh with full body. Aftertaste is quite short, but nicely balanced to the bitter, hoppy finish. Really nice and well-made beer.

TheFoamhead (261) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2015
The name should normally the programme - high on hops. Its a hopped beer and you could call it an IPA. But you could also call it a Pisener - tastewise. In terms of alcohol percentage its further away from a Pisener But thats the dilemma with this beer. Its not meat, its not fish. Its hop character is somehow castrated. Its bitter but it lacks the fruity freshness of a classic N.A. IPA and the bitter ease of a classic Pilsener. I hope its dry hopped - but I cant taste it. And then there is this little jelly bean taste. Not very present, but irritating. Remember your fist Red Bull sip - you got it! Bah! Ok, this is a bit exagerated, but still not my choice! Its an overall ok beer. But its not a true style IPA. Maybe you could call it an IPA for Pilsener lovers!

Alengrin (4895) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 My first beer from this new Utrecht brewery, an American-style India pale ale. Egg-white, moussy, stable head of medium thickness, supported by strong sparkling; colour a warm pinkish orange, slightly hazy, reminding me of a sunrise in September... Lovely aroma of citrussy hops and tons of fruit, forwarding impressions of fresh orange and mandarin, pink grapefruit, honey, banana, caramel candy, sweet white grapes, fresh mango, strawberries, vanilla extract, apple cake, fruit yoghurt, burnt wood, roasted peanuts, pine needles, toasted bread... Vividly fruity onset, mango, persimmon and dried apricot, sharp and minerally carbonation, hop bitterness setting in almost immediately (i.e. sooner than expected), only to increase towards the finish, over a backbone of nutty, subtly toasted and lightly bready malts, smooth and light on the tongue but not lacking in body; some spicy yeastiness accentuates the long, bone dry, peppery and floral, tonic water- and grapefruit-like hop bitterness which will stick with you for a long time. Both florally aromatic hops and the deep, leafy background bittering hops are there and in perfect balance. Totally quenching and elegant. But then, Im a sucker for IPAs...

skortila (5504) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
On tap @ Maximus. The aroma has lychee, grapefruit, some grass, little biscuit malts. Bit hazy, golden-copper coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter and has tropical fruits, biscuit malts, hint of caramel. Almost clean and quite dry in the finish. Good.

rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 23/06/16. At the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small foamy off-white. Fruity, candy and sweet hops, mild bitterness and some sweet maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is candies, metsamansikka, fruits, sweetness, mild bitterness and some sweetish malt. Quite balanced but sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
