Rune (11987) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2017
330ml can from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Near-clear orange-gold body. Firm white head leaving lacing rings down the glass. Tropical fruity nose. mid-dry. Rather solid taste profile of citrus drops and passion fruits. Well hopped tail, warming. Full bodied. Good drinking on a Friday eve (Troms 10.03.2017).

77ships (8945) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2017
330 ml. can. BBF 15/11/17. Near clear bright orange, creamy nearly off-white head. Nose is creamy base, some yeast with pine resin, caramel, lightly herbal, yeasty grapefruit peal. Taste is yeasty upfront; caramel, malty onion, grapefruit peel, orange peel, mandarin, sugar, interesting as others of the series, malty oily caramel, mandarin, malt mix with thick grapefruit peel, some slightly sweet apricot, dried stone fruit, interesting malt + hop combo, slightly herbal, exotic sugar, faint dried kiwi, herbal pine, faint leaf hops, raisin, sweet red grape,... Body is thicker than usual malt, creamy yeast, hop milkshake,... Interesting but tasty brew, unusual but intriguing. Very thick brew, interesting mix of big malt, yeast with lots of hops, interplay of near sweetness & USA hops (Simcoe I presume). Really grew on me, classy very nice, very thick brew.

bartlebier (3767) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2017
Fresh bb11/2017, Geers beeline from Proef without a DK detour I presume. Any case: still radiant. Probably the smoothest IIPA Ive had the pleasure of solo-enjoying in scarily few gulps. Including Heady Topper. Was never a hardcore Simcoe fan, finding it catty like old lemongrass, but seeing it in such splendorous Single Hop action, maybe some revisiting is in order. -nose of ripe actual mango&passionfruits swearing through their skins, invitingly sweet. Ideally matched by a touch of oats for full, pre-NEIPA "cloudy"-yet-smooth mouthfeel. Basically drinks like fresh exotic fruit pulp&peel juice, freshly infused for balance with pine tree sap. Just the slightest hint of abv to make you question how that can went down so fast. "Product of Belgium"...- keep mailing them in, Mikkel!

ogniskowicz (789) - POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Tym razem bardziej żywiczno-grejfprutowo, z zestową goryczką i słodkimi akcentami owocw tropikalnych. Jest świetnie, ale o dziwo lepiej wypadło Cascade i Mosaic.

Holmen2 (3346) - NORWAY - FEB 16, 2017
Can shared with JMD at HNB 16.02.17. Hazy orange. Dense off-white head and lacing. Aroma of oranges, bitter orange marmalade, fresh pine and bitter grapefruit. Similar taste, balanced with pale malt, bitterness and alcohol. Citrus bitterness is lingering on.

Holmen1 (5474) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2017
0,33 boks fra helsekosten p Kvadd (den andre av fire i denne serien), delt med Ovesen under tapping av vr kaffestout "Sykt travelt": ogs denne er lett uklar gylden med et hjt og eksemplarisk skum som varer helt til bunns. Deilig citrusaroma med innslag av bringebr. Myke og braktige fraspark ogs i smaken med flott balanse (ikke for st). Lang ettersmak med lekker bitterhet. Dette er allerede blitt en fin kveld!

sunevdj (4035) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2017
Can at home. Pours a clearish golden with an off-white head. Quite sweet with a high bitterness, especially towards the end. Aromas of sprucey hops with hints of alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Long very bitter finish.

Cloudy bronze. Big, fluffy head. Piney aroma. Taste is grass, malt, marmalade, but overall imbalanced.
