4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Maker: BrauKunstKeller, Michelstadt, Germany ***
Beer: Amarsi Strong IPA (bottled, unfiltered, 330ml) ***
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) ***
ALC.VOL.: 7.1% ***
"Fruity and fresh IPA with Amarillo and Simcoe hops." [brewery note, my translation] ***
Colour: Deep hazy amber, small off-white head. ***
Nose: Strong, slightly sweetish grapefruit with herbs, hint of pinewood. ***
Texture: Medium body, slightly oily, medium carbonation. ***
Taste: Some sweetish grapefruit and alcohol at first, with bitter herbs and pinewood kicking in soon. Medicinal notes. Towards the middle the bitterness increases significantly; now fresh and dry, appealingly resinous. More resin and hoppy bitterness in the finale, with a grapefruit note that is carried over into the aftertaste. Lasting hoppy bitterness, with expressive resin. ***
Impressions: Excellent stronger IPA (though not quite the "Imperial" variety), moves ever closer to the hard-edged, resinous APA style. Good fruitiness and herbal notes add to the appeal of this multi level IPA.
