HonusWagner (2191) - Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Has nice tropical fruit note of melon or mango which gives the air of sweetness without actually being sweet. Unfortunately I notice a catty note that makes further consumption a bit difficult. A good enough DIPA, easy to drink for 9%, but yeah the cat piss is hard to ditch entirely.

Nische (2291) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2017
Backlog. Hazy golden with white head. Grapefruit, dough, grass and onion in both aroma and taste. A bit biscuity. Probably better fresh.

(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB 15/11/2017, from Alko, 20170729) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and alcohol. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A boozy hoppy brew.

Marstonlad (908) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours hazy golden with a medium-sized, well lasting head. The aroma is richly hoppy. Citrusy and tropical fruitiness flourish; grapefruit, mango, orange. Taste is heavily bitter; no initial or later malt sweetness, this is pretty much just about the hops. The tropical aspect is fairly prominent. Long slide toward a grapefruit-flavoured, dryish finish. The palate is medium to full bodied and very smooth. Solid DIPA.

jinroh (1698) - ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2017
Pours light golden, not so much foam there. Nose is peachy, some tropical fruits, nice hops. Tastes also fruity, biscuity malt base. In general light feel to it but full of hops. Incredible how light one 9% beer can actually taste!

The family of widow Ellen Brody (Lorraine Gary) has long been plagued by shark attacks, and this unfortunate association continues when her son is the victim of a massive great white. In mourning, Ellen goes to visit her other son, Michael (Lance Guest), in the Bahamas, where she meets the charming Hoagie Newcombe (Michael Caine). As Ellen and Hoagie begin a relationship, a huge shark appears off the coast of the island, and Ellen’s trouble with the great whites begins again.
