Grumbo (1518) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle bought online from Saveur Biere. Pours a hazy golden brown with a quite firm and lasting off white head, leaving good lacing. Delicious fresh, hoppy aroma with notes of caramel, light malt and vanilla. Sweetness is light/medium, with medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body, texture creamy/oily, average carbonation. Long bitter finish, slight sherbet mouthfeel feel, with a light but lasting sensation of chocolate. A very very good IPA.

Zilb (181) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Bue 4 mois avant DLC avec Pap et Emilien en Bretagne. Bue apres la Mac Vadish qui etait tres orientee houblons americains. Biere ambree avec tres fin col de mousse stable a 3mm. Carbonation tres importante. Arome de malt toaste et de fruits tropicaux/agrumes. Final sur le malt legerement grille et orange amere. Amertume moyenne. Interessant mais presque "fade" apres la Mac Vadish qui n’etait pourtant pas une ipa et plus faible en alcool.

hazy orange colour, medium sized dense off-white hed with yellowish notes; aroma of tropical fruits, floral notes, biscuits, some toast, hints of pine resins, grapefruits and orange zest; taste is basically the same with less intensity; really good IPA

APPEARANCE: golden ambar color and hazy. medium light ivory head with moderate persistance. TASTE: similar to the aroma with moderate hop flavor (citric, some pine, slightly grassy). medium-low to low malt background, slightly sweet and a faint toffee note. medium-high bitterness that endures after an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body and slight creamy. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average IPA.

erickok (5462) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Better than expected aroma, well hopped and balanced. Simpler taste profile, drinkable but to short aftertaste. Still a great BBQ beer I reckon. Much better than expected. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

SinH4 (3191) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Amber color with small white head. Aroma is piney hops, forestfloor, toffee, caramel. Taste is piney, caramel, hints of butter and old hops (won’t blame that on the beer, after all it’s from the other side of the world. Bittersweet finish. Quite full-bodied for just 5.8%. Not bad.
