Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
50cl bottle. Amber color with a medium sized white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with orange, pine and malt. Flavor is quite bitter with orange, pine, grapefruit, sweetish malt and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, bitter aftertaste.

Nice palate. Taste is pretty deep. Really fuity aroma. Thick mouth feeling. Like a peachy nectar but with a ton of hops. It takes some time to swallow down. If one likes a fruity IPA with a full-blown aroma-hop-blowjob, with a Belgian yeast-twist, this is the one.

Belle bière couleur de miel, voilée et où flotte un col mousseux laissant une fine dentelle au verre. Des arôme de caramel, de biscuit et de résine. Moyennement amère avec un peu de sucres résiduels. Elle est crémeuse, de corps robuste, doucement effervescente et se termine sur d’interminables arômes et une belle amertume.

Vighals (3744) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Uklar, lys brun. Grape og en anelse fersken i lukten. Mineralsk, litt tobakk. Bare noen få dråper gir masse smak. Bitter lang ettersmak. Smakt igjen 27.12. 2013 (2009 årgang) Brunorange med tynt hvitt skum. Moden stenfruk og grape. Fyldig, bitter litt søtlig smak. Medium kullsyre behagelig fyldig og bitter ettersmak ( første rating 3.3 )

zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 10, 2013
bottled, batch 937, brewed 12.03.2013. Pours intense light amber to orange, clear one with white-off medium top, light lasing, average duration foam, frothy one. Aroma - first was dominant hops, but later became more malty, light spicy, mild pungent, ... hmm a bit boiled vegetables as well, hops are mostly herbal-spicy, malt sweetness. Taste - malt sweetness plus good bitter from hopping, also some notes of roasted or toasted malt bitter reminds me of nutty flavor notes. Palate - medium to full body, thick, slick-oily texture, soft carbonation, long, bitter finish, pleasant herbal bitter aftertaste. To me this brew is interesting in two things. First it has nutty flavor what is something new to me in this style and second is that I actually can’t say exact what this is DIPA or IIPA, cause malt profile is enough to confuse to say it is or not Imperial IPA. Some critics in aroma. Overall - liked, but this is mostly due to IBU.

Kaksi kapteenia kaatuu lasiin kuparisen oranssisena nesteenä muodostaen vaalean ja kestävän vaahdon. Tuoksusta pistää ensimmäisenä esiin eksoottinen hedelmäisyys ja aromaattinen humalointi. Ainakin greippi ja veriappelsiini tulevat mieleen hedelmistä. Alta pilkistää karamellinen maltaisuus ja Sellainen on tuoksusta vastaava kapteeni. Mausta vastaava kapteeni taasen on katkeran, mutta kuitenkin hillityn humaloitu (tai humalassa?). Greippinen hedelmäisyys melkein muistuttaa saman panimon perusipaa, joka onkin tyylinsä parhaimmistoa varsinkin tuoreena. Alta pilkistää taas karamellisuutta. Ei ollenkaan ällömakea tuplaipa. Kapteenien ulkonäköä en viitsi tässä sen kummemmin kehuskella, mutta suussa he tuntuvat varsin runsailta ja jollottelevat merimieslaulujaan varsin iloisesti. Varsin onnistunut tuplaipa, joka ei kuitenkaan mitenkään erityisesti erotu massasta.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Hazy red/orange colour with a thin white head. Quite a bit of sediment- maybe I was too cavalier when pouring... Aroma of toffee, caramel, malt, some hops, alcohol. Taste is sweet with a long duration. Thick oily texture, light carbonation. Ok.

Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of malt, rich fruity hops, peach, citrus, pine. Flavor is malt, peach, bitter fruity hops, grapefruit, resin, pine, some alcohol. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, dry and bitter finish with some alcohol. 210713

A rather mild double IPA with a smooth and mildly bitter taste and a nice, bitter finish. It has a full body as the finnish stays long in your mouth. A really enjoyable beer for a night.
