JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottled. Hoppy and malty nose. Pale fast disappearing head. Golden colour. Malty and hoppy taste. More than average hops. Too hoppy for my taste. Erasmus_ro (3237) - Alabama, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a small, off-white head. Smells and tastes like an IPA. Pine and pith, some grapefruit. Nothing special. kryon (3930) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2012
Pours dark amber low head.
Were are the aromas? Can’t really find them.
Body and palate is low. Medium bitterness and a bit too bready and malty. A bit metallic AndySnow (8306) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Amber orange colour with a medium sized white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy bitter flavour. jookos (7160) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Low carb. Orange amber. Malty nose, caramel, some citrus, apricot. A bit light on taste w/malty caramel, bitterness. Feels more like a gb ipa than us. Except for the citrusy hops. Ok. Average, i suppose. A bit unimaginative but well made. Oh, and the metallic flavor present in all st eriks greets you in this one as well.
stouby (4859) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2012
Draught at City Pub.
Slight hazy dark orange with a white head. Aroma medium malty (caramel), heavy hoppy (citrus). Flavor light to medium sweet, medium+ bitter, light spicy. Medium body. Quite nice. iumentum (8) - Blaker, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2012 does not count
Almost no aroma. Pours golden brown with little head. A little over medium bitter. Overall a below average IPA Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Clear deep golden pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is buttery and somewhat of cheesy hops. Flavor is bitter and with some sweaty hops. Quite decent malt backbone. Simple but decent brew. ElDesmadre (3984) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a small head. Aroma is American hops - citrus, apricot, some less grapefruit and even less pine. Some bready malt, raisins, toffee and apples. Not bad but a bit tame - the composition is balanced but somehow restrained. Medium carbonation, rather light body. Disappointingly hollow in terms of flavour, it is fruity-hoppy and malty but makes again a tame, restrained impression. As if all the edges have been cut off, by which the beer became quite polished but devoid of character. I’d say, a politically-correct IPA, and that means boring. Cunningham (8528) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Strømstad, Sweden. Orange colour with a small white head. Lots of grape in the aroma, toghether with some fruitiness. Very moderate flavour, with some hoppy grape and light fruitiness.
