Garrold (1332) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, orangey amber. Film of white head. Thick, banana toffee sweetness. Greasy, hoppy, chewy, herbal and a bit mucky. Love DIPA beers like this. Obviously this is nothing like it could be fresh, but still liked this a lot. Marked it down due to the topdollarishness.

Fantastic aroma! Lemon and grapefruit. The taste is similar. Dry and bitter finish. Maybe just a little bit more carbonation.

dresden (845) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
500ml bottle best before January....which i dont get. If it was brewed 3 months from now it might be best before January. Fruity hop nose, grapefruit, some perfume. Grapefruity taste, not harshly bitter but still quite bitter. Tropical fruit. It’s good.

Idiosynkrasie (3804) - 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.

Marduk (2718) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 23, 2014
500ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Clear amber color. Medium size, off-white head, stays. Fruity, sweet, malty, hops, red currant in aroma. Fruity, delicate hops, herbal notes in taste. Alcohol is very well hidden. Dry aftertaste. Beautiful beer.

pintbypint (2603) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
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 (9346) - 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.
