COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopfen: Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Citra, Magnum Malz: Pilsener, Wiener, Karamellmalz With Progusta, the types of hops used come to the fore, and harmonize perfectly with the bitter note. The hoppy aroma can be attributed to the American Citra and German Hallertauer Mittelfrüh varieties, which complement each other beautifully. The sweetness remaining after fermentation forms a nice interplay with the bitter note. Progusta betont die Charakteristik der verwendeten Hopfensorten. Die Bitternote ist genau auf diese abgestimmt. Als Hopfensorten für das Hopfenaroma wurde die amerikanische Sorte Citra und die deutsche Sorte Hallertauer Mittelfrüh verwendet. Zwei Sorten, die sich ideal ergänzen. Die nach der Gärung verbleibende Restsüße korrespondiert toll mit der Bitternote.

tmoreau (3703) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 Distributor rep’s contribution to a mini-tasting at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 22 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a soft white layer of foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was earthy and dank, with strong herbal notes, and a late touch of ripe pit fruit. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste added a bit of sweetness, and moderate, earthy bitterness. The initial triple threat in the aroma caught me a little off guard, but finished with fair drinkability.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2016
(Draught at Das Meisterstück, Berlin, 25 Aug 2016) Amber colour with lasting, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, citrus, mandarin and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, treacle-toffee, apricots and a generous citric, resiny bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain caramel sweetness. Tasty and well balanced IPA, with a generous hop character. Nice one.

gyhallmanti (278) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
75cl bottle split with SimonBlok. Pours a hazy orange colour with a decent off white head which diminishes to a thin layer. Aroma of orange, hops, citrus, mango, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter woth a soft bitter finish. Notes of caramel, orange, peach, grass, hops. Texture is oily to watery, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very mild for a ipa in my opinion but very nice

Tjeerd (251) - GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
All there for a good ipa (smell, taste, finish, mouthfeel) but nothing to make it stand out. Love it, will drink it again, but will not go looking for it.

kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Malt bomb of an IPA. East coast made in German. not germany. Cloudy copper with an off-white head. Ifs bitter and malty almost like an ESB. It laces heavily. I guess for an (not a) far east IPA its pretty ok.

As I drank this blind, I’m not actually a blind man, I just didn’t know what this was. How obsurd I would point out I have no vision in a review. Tasted like an older pale, but it didn’t really grab me .. Hay and malt, some German hops . Nothing to this yet still decent.
I’m not blind!
