3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
redish hazy color, fruits smell, light grassy, fresh, some flowers and also light smell of spices (chili). full bodied, light fruity taste but the brew turns very bitter very quickly. Bitterness seems to be a combination of malt and hop bitterness. bitterness tastes also a bit smokey / burned. overall very dry finish. bitterness is long lasting. Uncommon / a bit unbalanced IPA but not unpleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(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

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
