javiercrasher (703) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 25, 2015
Anaranjada, turbia, con una buena capa de espuma compacta. Aromas a pino y resina, con fondo cítrico (Tomahawk y Simcoe). En boca amarga y resinosa, caramelo, ligeramente especiada. Ni rastro del alcohol. Final seco y con amargor persistente. Un cervezón!

zimbo (979) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Firm palate, russet appearance, bitter rough apple quality. Light carbonation. Firm densish off white head. Quick finish. Not bad but doesn’t get the heart really going.

Zlotta (4129) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 0.33 l bottle from Firma Bier, best before 8/4/2017. Clear, orangeish amber with a huge, creamy, stable, tan head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, pine, honey and orange. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, orange, pine and honey, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Good, but probably too old for a more prominent hop character. Also a bit too sticky for my liking. Liked the Master IPA better.

3.4
Tide (4564) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle from Beergium. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, pine, resin, hops and earthy notes. Bitter finish with grapefruit, resin, pine, hops and a bit of grass. Solid imperial IPA.

Grzesiek79 (4480) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 16, 2015
Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piekna barwa, miedziano bursztynowa, metna i piekna czapowata piana gwaltownie rosnaca ze az trzeba uwazac przy nalewaniu. Piwo smaczne tresciwe wytrawne i bardzo gozkie. Zaskakujace i umilajace wieczorek. Gorycz wyczuwalna i lekko drazniaca podniebienie, lekka jablkowa slodowosc, wytrawnosc podczas picia dominujaca jednak. Jak na Belgie bardzo gozkie piwo, a alkohol wogole nie wyczuwalny, to standard wsrod dobrych belgijskich piw. Polecam.

4.1
jesperhammer (5017) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
11-SEP-2015, draft @Delirum Basement, with Ulkløbben. Hazy amber with a creamy, off-white, lasting, lacing head. Grape fruit and pine and very malty as well with toast, bread and caramel. Red ale like. Sweet and bitter, clearly dry hopped. Nice.

4.3
jamestulloch (4414) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden/amber body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of resin, boozy orange and toffee. Flavour of pine needles, peppery spice and flowery hops. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Reminds me of Lagunitas’ Maximus. Very good.

4.5
Lore (2989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 6, 2015
beautiful appearnce of hazy amber colour and huge, creamy, stable yellowish off-white head; aroma of citruses, caramel, pine resin, hints of tagerine, maybe some grape/raisin; bittersweet taste with caramel, pine resin, less intensive citruses than in the aroma, some bread and overripe tropicl fruits; excellent IIPA

3.6
ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 1, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2016 Hazy golden with a huge creamy head, persistent and leaving sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity hops, pine resin and caramelish malts. Medium sweet, leathery, astringent and with a medium to high bitter finish.
