Evilman (199) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 8, 2017
Pleasantly surprised by the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, I obviously chose this one with some expectations. Well, its a good IPA indeed, but this is not my favorite style to begin with. A fresh and hoppy taste, not way different from the best IPAs on the market but still enjoyable. Some bitterness quickly dissipated and a pretty correct aftertaste in mouth. Not my usual cup of tea but good enough to be APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Cybion (170) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle, 12 FL. OZ. Pours very cloudy deep amber/orange with half a finger of soapy off-white head which doesnt stick around long. Patchy lacing, moderate amount of visible carb; small bubbles. Nose is malty, sweet, fruity. Strong caramel, sourdough bread, candied pineapple and orange/blood orange, other tropical fruits around the edges and nicely balanced out by fresh, floral, citrus-y hops. Taste is similarly fruity and sweet, but also with a noticeably sharp grapefruit-y sourness as it hits the tongue. Turns sweeter and slightly syrupy towards the finish with some more juicy fruit (orange, mango) and sourdough malt. Some chalk/mineral bitters right at the end. Finish is long and wet a moderate lingering hoppy bitterness, with some cereal, light spice and white pepper. Body is solid medium and despite the slight syrupy character this doesnt seem as sticky as some claim, instead going down super smoothly for me. Moderate carbonation adds a bit of extra refreshing sharpness. Great stuff with an excellent sweet/sour/bitter balance; not quite the juice monsters of your Cloudwater and "New England style" fare but a fine fruity IPA.

JuanCC (58) - Valencia, SPAIN - FEB 17, 2017
Botella en 99Cervezas. Color dorado-mbar, muy brillante y perfectamente transparente. Buena espuma ligeramente tintada, bastante cremosa con burbuja de diversos tamaos y muy adherente, aunque de persistencia media. En este caso no es un problema, porque permite ver casi enseguida un bonito encaje de Bruselas. Una preciosidad de cerveza. En nariz intensidad media y complejidad media-alta. Lo primero que viene es el lpulo, acompaado de notas frutales, como de ciruela blanca no demasiado madura. Notas florales suaves pero presentes. Tambin encontramos notas tnues especiadas, como de pimienta, as como el picor de la de hierba recin cortada. Muy ligeros toques de caramelo. El amargo y el luce compiten como sabor principal, ambos suaves pero muy expresivos y muy muy bien equilibrados. En cuanto a la sensacin en boca, es de peso medio-ligero, suavemente frizante y con gran carcter refrescante. El fantstico equilibrio entre dulce y amargo se mantiene conforme evoluciona en boca. En el dulce, salen notas ligeramente amisteladas. El amargo por su parte, conjunta delicadeza y expresividad. El final en boca mantiene el equilibrio dulce-amargo, Sin que el primero resulte empalagoso en absoluto ni el segundo cargante. Un portento de equilibrio. Una cerveza maravillosa. De trago largo y extrema bebestibilidad. Tan slo le cambiara el nombre, ya que con el ttulo de Brutal" quiz muchos amantes del lpulo extremo esperarn encontrar un fuerte carcter lupulado (an mejor si es de lpulo viejo), y no es el caso en absoluto.
