Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2015
650ml bottle. Barely clear, deep golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, notes of orange, tangerin, some pine. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, citrusy hoppy overtones, mild bitterness, a minimally soapy touch, some orange, tangerine, a zesty touch; almost a bit watery (especially considering it being an IIPA). Flawless, but rather boring. (and btw, quite horrible "artwork").

BlazerT (248) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Teku glass. Golden, hazy with medium to big, semi-densed, white head. Good lacing. Medicore head retention. Strong piney and citrus (grapefruit) aroma, also some medium earthy notes, light floral notes. Malty profile is not so distinguishable - some light caramel and grainy notes. The taste is medium to high bitter, but at first you fell some semi-sweet grainy notes. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is dry and bitter. In overall potent IIPA in terms of hops, but not in terms of malts. Something between high malty and hoppy IIPA and super dry, highly armoatic, almostly perfume-like IIPA.

Vili (146) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
66cl bottle. Cloudy golden pour with medium thick white head, nice lacing. Aromas of fresh spruce, bread and citrus. Taste is very bitter, dry and sour. Low carbonation, slightly oily palate. Aftertaste is long and dry, hoppy ride with mouth-drying finish. Textbook DIPA, but boring.

tomekk1978 (889) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Aromat: wyraźna nuta słodowa charakterystyczna dla amerykańskich piw w tym gatunku (zbożowo - ciastkowa). Chmiel pod postacią owoców tropikalnych i cytrusów, ale niezbyt wyrazisty. Do tego spora dawka alkoholu. Barwa: złota, wyraźnie zamglona. Piana w kolorze ecru, początkowo zbita, po pewnym czasie drobno pęcherzykowa. Dość obfita, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Smak: lekka słodycz z bardzo wyraźną nutą zbożową i ciaskową, skontrowana słodycz. Goryczka owocowo - żywiczna, umiarkowana do wysokiej, ale raczej delikatna i niezbyt długa. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i wytrawna oraz alkoholowa końcówka. Kolejne IIPA, które nie wywarło na mnie specjalnego wrażenia, zapewne przez brak świeżości.

Can. Hazy gold amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts. Hops are orange and grapefruit with lesser grapefruit marmalade. Mild hop spice. Trace of tropical fruits. Finishes smooth and semi dry with a hop spice linger. Pretty drinkable.

JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Can - cloudy orange with slim white head. Huge aroma, fresh floral, citrus and pine aroma. Similar in the taste, nicely balanced, medium bodied, soft carbonation. Nice long bitter finish.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Tap. A: Cloudy gold with a thin white head. N: Grapefruit, pine, earth, lemon, peppercorn, some hemp. T: Quite bitter, light crackery sweetness. M: Medium body, very dry, no alcohol, crisp carbonation. O: Good DIPA. More IPA in my opinion and I would like more dry hopping so it’s middle tier for style.

Fashawn (430) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAY 29, 2015
Aroma of peach, resin, a little bit of mango, passion fruit, a lot of pine needles. Taste of caramel, peach, and pine neadles. A little bit of orange peal, very solid bitternes. Caramel and malt at the finish, with the resin. Light to medium body, thiny texiture. Good overal IPA

mjik83 (969) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
35,5cl blikje via Hoppy Brothers, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8,2% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: oranjekleurig, flinke schuimkraag al trekt die snel weg Aroma en smaak: heeft een mooie pijnboom geur van Amerikaanse hop, smaak is fruitig als grapefruit, hoppig, bloemig, redelijk flinke bitter Conclusie: ondanks uit blik wel een lekkere IPA, smaak mag wat langer blijven hangen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
