Idiosynkrasie (6396) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, orangey, deep golden colour with firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Room-filling, resinous hop aroma, sweaty, citrusy fruit notes are concentrated to a honey-like aggregate, lemongrass overtones. Taste is biting bitter hoppy, concentrated bitterness, resin, citrus, a touch of orange zest. Too dense, narrow, hop concentration and intensity at the expense of breadth and variety of flavours.

500ml brown bottle. Gold-orange colour, some haze. Fat and creamy white cap, very sudsy lacing. Nose has orange peel and grapefruit with background malt sweetness. Taste has grapefruit and some tropical fruit, decent hop bitterness. Drier in the finish with some late alcohol and back of the throat hops. Solid double IPA.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2014
500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Right from the pour, the aroma is lovely expressive fruity hop mix - zingy and spicy. Smooth sweet palate, gentle carbonation. Nice biscuity malts, almost flapjacky graininess. Sweetish, but not sugary. Good balance, rich malts, fruity aromatic hops, and bitter finish. In contrast to the ratatosk, this is DIPA done right. Still a bit too sweet.

Flaska. Behaglig frisk doft med lagårdstoner. Lättdrucken med en otrolig behaglig munkänsla. Man får lite rye tankar. En mycket bra dipa.
