fantti (986) - FINLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu IPA-lasiin vaalenkullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin 2,5 sormen pumpulisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksu on humaloinnin osalta hyvin kukkainen, sitruksinen ja suht havuinen, kukkaisuuden (amarillo?) ollessa selvsti vahvimpana. Maltaisuus tuntuu lievn viljaisuutena, muttei ole kovin makean oloinen. Maku jatkaa kukkaisen sitruksisella linjalla, jotain sitruksen kuortakin tuntuu joukossa. Havua iskee loppumaussa runsaasti joukkoon. Maltaisuus on hieman makea, mutta ei karamellinen. Suutuntuma on hkkvn humaloitu, tuntuu yllttvn tuoreelta tavaralta. Muuten tuntuma on hieman makea ja melko tytelinen, lopussa kuivattava. Veikkaisin ainakin amarilloa (nkjn ei) kytetyn thn humalankeruuolueen, niin vahvaa oli kukkaisuus lpi tuoksun ja maun. Katkeron puraisu ovn todella napakka, ja maltaisuus on kaukana makean karamellisesta, tmn kaltainen DIPAn pit ollakin.

Cavie (4552) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2017
Growler from Kool Keg, freshly filled and opened. Clear. Golden yellow color, rocky head. Big dank, grassy hops. Some BO notes. Musty. Flavor is not over the top hoppy but it is certainly present. Bready backbone. Citrus and musty dank hops. Grassy. Fairly bitter finish but not too crazy. Nice.

TEJA (2797) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Huge and lasting off white head. Intense and fresh grapefruit hop aroma. The citrus hop caracter also dominate the taste and give a hard, lasting and astringent bitterness. Mild maltiness and no balancing sweetness.

HourGlass13 (755) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2017
One trick pony here. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is all hops. Slight tropical fruits in the background. Medium body and carbonation. Very abrasive long bitter finish. A real hop bomb.

freekyp (2083) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2017
A really good example of an Imperial IPA that is waaaay out of balance. Grapefruit and cat box aroma. Lots of mango. The finish is overly intense with the bitterness. Brutal. Danger zone.

Hopmaestro (1539) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2017
Aroma is quite intense grassy hops with some floral notes and an somewhat piney approach. Taste is pretty crisp and dry, which is enhanced by the soft sweetness and herbal touch. Strong, lingering bitterness with maybe a little bit of alcohol bite. This is a strong solid and classic Imperial IPA.

JorgeLee (1978) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2017
On tap, Randolph NYC. Hazy light amber colour. Solid malts, not cloying. Very hoppy but only medium bitterness, fruity citrus and slightly tropical but a floral note. Drinks easily. Very nice.
