Charlieboy (62) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 Tried from bottle, pours very pale and looks good, aroma is neutral not as hoppy as I would think it would be. Tastes sweet and a little empty, not much bitterness. Thought it would be hoppier

Radek Kliber (7239) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 24, 2012
On tap at Ginger Man NY
Aroma: highly aromatic, grapefruit, pineapple. Fresh, clean cut hop aroma! 8+
Appearance: hazed amber with medium plus creamy top (off white).
Palate / Taste: medium bodied. Mild texture, even creamy with long lasting spread of grapefruit like hop notes. Aroma was great , due to texture rest suffered a bit.

CraftBeerNick (2123) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Keg at PSBH, 12th April 2012. Nice beer, kind of refreshing which is weird for the ABV, this comes from a great balance of the bittering. not bad

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2012
66cl bottle - pours bright loght straw yellow with a tiny white head (for an imperial IPA? - wow). Nose is floral with some grassy notes - makes me think of a noble Loire wine with Sauvignon grapes (a bit of cats pee - which is actually a recognised odeur in such wines - I am not kidding). Light body with nice carbonation and medium bitterness... This is easy drinkable but I doubt if this really an imperial IPA. In any case, it is well hidden and very balanced. Like it a lot!!!

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2012
Tap at Churchkey in November with Gene, Gt, Carl, and Whitney. Golden orange with a small white head. This was really tasty and a nice surprise for a European IPA. Very fresh, tropical, some pine and citrus. Smooth caramel malt backbone with little sweetness. Nicely dry and tasty.
