Saeglopur (307) - Vienna Woods, - APR 11, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark amber, hazy body, with big, frothy, slightly beige head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, orange, grass, hay. Taste starts sweet, with yeast, orange, honey and grains and quickly merges into a strong, dry bitterness, of lemon zest, herbs and grass. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes long, strong bitter, dry, with not many aromas. Really an uncommon IPA, that isn’t bad, but just unbalalanced in my opinion. Especially the bitterness is much too dominant, while the fruit notes that could balance this are hidden behind yeast and grain notes. Too weird for my liking.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a short and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly bready cara-malty aroma with moderately fruity and delicately woody hoppy notes. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, rather light bodied with a tame carbonation. Slim malty start with hints of caramel and shy crusty feel, accompanied by mildly fruity, herbal and woody hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with sprucy and slightly woody hops. Lacks body and a bit character. 21.IV.14

jfb (3796) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
(bottle) pours a murky slightly ruby-amber colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of honey melon, grainy roasted malts and powdered sugar, with a hint of grape juice, some bubble gum and alcohol. flavour is more grainy pale malts, with notes of milk chocolate, herbal hops, some apricots and a heavy-bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

bartlebier (1645) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
33cl bottle, bb 01/2015 from webshop. Pours copper with soapy cathedral windows. Aromatic caramalty and orange zest nose, including a whiff of some harshness to come in taste: very caramalty, with hops fighting for balance of the orange marmelade-spruce mix on a roughish palate. Excellent hop aromatics somewhat overshadowed by overcooked dimensions and residual yeastiness not tied in, but remains drinkable. Thin-medium malt base, typical for many a DE-/AT IPA.

bastarda (66) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Courtesy of and shared with bartlebier, thanks! Pours a nice orange-amber, synaestetically pleasing, since the Amarillo hops orange aroma makes quite a shiny appearance nose- and tastewise. Absolutely fitting: the bitter finish.

dnicolaescu (736) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 3, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL from BeerHunter111. Thanks, Hans Peter! Look: clear (with yeast sediment) dark amber-copper with a light beige head. Aroma: fruity, caramel, fruit marmalade, yeast, something mineral, not much hops. Taste: sweet and fruity fruity, with a very harsh burn-cooking oil-like bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (3920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
Ordentliches und vernünftiges IPA, das aber schon sehr "belgisch" daherkommt. Etwas zu viel Hefe, etwas zu viel Getreide, aber die Nase, die ist schön hopfig-vanillin.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
The beer pours out of the bottle in a hazy light amber-golden colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and hops. Taste of mild hops, dust, nuts, basement, oranges and spruce. Light Belgian finish - something I clearly dislike in an IPA. Okay, but very average and boring.
