Draft at Rattle n Hum West. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is killer, grapefruit, sweet tanger and nectar ines, pine. Juicy, citrus, pine flavor, some sweetness, decent bitterness. Medium body, great rough feel. Nice!

Iznogud (5000) - CROATIA - DEC 30, 2017
On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Pours hazy orange with medium whitehead. Nice, hoppy, tropical fruit, mango, juicy, soft texture, maybe even a bit warming. Some sweetness in the middle. Lasting bitterness in finish. Medium bodied.

Pours hazy bright gold. Tropical fruit hop aroma. Strong hop bomb taste of citrus, fruit and pine. Lingering citrus, candied and bitter hop aftertaste.

16 oz. can from Steve - thanks again for the bonus, Steve! Pours a hazy orange with a small white head that settles into a ring and wispy film, leaving a rope or two of lace in the glass. Notes of tangerine, grapefruit zest, passion fruit, pineapple, stone fruits, light florals, sweet malts, grass, tea, nectarine, and lemon. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a sweet, citrusy, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Good double IPA. Doesn’t drink so much like the other hazy stuff lately. A little more traditional.

PotjeBier (3917) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2017
Draft @ Rattle n Hum East (as part of a flight). Yellow golden color, slightly hazy. Dense white head, not much. Aroma's: nice juicy fruity, tropical fruit. Retronasal there's something off though, there's dried dark fruit, but also something toasted or nutty, weird. Flavor is above moderate bitter with light fruity sourness. Medium bodied. Finish is bitter with that nuttiness. Not entirely convincing.

sinfull (1876) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Cloudy, golden color. Medium sized, white head. Fruity explosion in aroma (citrus, mango , pineapple...). Juicy, refreshing taste with strong but not sharp hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The spicy cereals taste slow down the enthusiasm I got from the super juicy tropical fruits aroma (which is also in taste but share the spotlight with spicy cereals). It's good nonetheless but it fall in the category of IIPA which I think are just a tad too strong and heavy to be highly enjoyable.

Canette (473 ml) à la maison, partagée à deux. Merci à Benjamin! Apparence plutôt trouble, couleur orangée avec une tête blanche moyenne qui s'estompe lentement et laisse un peu de dentelle sur les parois. Au nez, c'est très juteux avec des fruits tropicaux à l'avant-plan accompagné d'oranges, de résine, de pamplemousse et de notes épicées. Au goût, c'est encore assez juteux, mais les céréales épicées sont plus présentes et prennent presque autant de place que les oranges, le pamplemousse et la résine. L'amertume est modérée à moyenne. Corps moyen. Carbonatation modérée. Texture huileuse. Finale sèche avec un arrière-goût de pamplemousse. Léger réchauffement en provenance de l'alcool. Le goût céréalier et épicé vient un peu freiner l'ardeur à boire cette bière que l'arôme juteux et tropical avait donné. C'est quand même plutôt bien, mais ça entre dans la catégorie des IIPA juste un peu trop lourdes à mon goût.

Can pour. Subtle grass and hops on the nose. Medium bodied with solid bitterness. Pours a cloudy amber. Interesting hop bite, something like enigma. Pretty good.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Can at a hotel room in Boston during the CBC. Stone- and tropical fruits dominate the aroma. Very chewy mouthfeel. Somewhat slightly sticky but still very juicy. I liked this one very much.
