Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle. Copper pour with a big white head. Sweat, caramel, pine, citrus. No so pleasant aroma. Medium body. Sweet body. Not impressed.

1.5
MacBoost (1963) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Holy shit this is an abomination of a beer. Sticky bitter malt juice. Tylenol. Sickly sweet. Tastes like a 10 year old recipe. Jesus fuck no.

3.7
Sebilinz (2724) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with large lasting tan head. Aroma is malts, caramel some hints of fruits and pines. Taste is malts with some honey and caramel. Aftertaste is malty sweetness nicely balanced by some hops bitterness. Nice one but it has more of a barly wine.

3.6
joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear amber. Two finger off white head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of caramel and faint whiskey. Taste is really earthy bitter and malty sweet, a little too sweet for the style. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of Belgian sugar, caramel, dates, pine resin, alcohol. This drinks almost like a barley wine that’s over hopped. Not bad beer just another curve ball from Shipyard.

3.6
jaghana (6366) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle 355 ml, a copper amber beer with good head. Nose is on toasted malt, hop resin, almond, floral. Aroma is on caramel, sugar, almond, biscuit, vanilla, sweet, berries, complex, good bitterness and body, quince.

2.3
VGdogy (20) - Velika Gorica, CROATIA - JUN 27, 2015
Dark orange to copper colour, medium carbonation, thin head which gone in 10-15 sec. Aroma of nothing specific, presence of alcohol tough and unpleasent. Flavor for an DIPA is very bad. Alcohol, alcohol an nothing else. Afteertaste is bitter but harsh bitter. Not a good stuff I’m afraid.

3.7
Iznogud (4730) - CROATIA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle, 355 ml at O’hara, Zagreb. shared with JFK10000. Pours dark orange, off white head. Hoppy aroma and flavor. Caramel, spicy note, fruity. Bitter finish.

2.8
Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Keg at Spacebar, 4/6/15. Clear golden, thin fizzy off-white head, poor retention. Aroma of floral and mild piney hops. The taste is resin, melon hops, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

3.9
Trolleo (1838) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 12, 2015
Hazy to cloudy brown color, small white head which disappeared quickly. Biscuity aroma, a bit boozy. Taste is pleasantly hoppy, medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Boozy yet refreshing.

4.3
tekstr1der (507) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Surprised by the "low" ratings on this one. Glad I finally tried it. Pour is clear, golden-amber with thin, clingy top. Aroma is other-worldly, one of the most fantastic smells I’ve encountered - bready malt with wild berry and citrus. I spent most of my time with this thing with my nose in the glass! Flavor has malty start, a nice bitter bite in the middle, finishing pretty clean with a nice semi-sweet linger. Good stuff, this!
