Cavie (4805) - 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 (3257) - 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 (1042) - 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 (2408) - 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.

3.7
Hopmaestro (1749) - Örebro, 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.

3.8
JorgeLee (2234) - 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.

3.3
Turboninja (849) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2017
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with sweetish, bit sour mango, fruits and hops. Light orange color with small/medium white head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium, balanced taste with overaged mango and hops that makes otherwise sweetish taste drier. Very hoppy. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and long, dry and hoppy aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, American style IIPA with nice twist of dry sourness that makes it more refreshing. Bit simple though.
