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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska från SB. Bärnstenfärgad med smutsvit skumkrona. Stor doft av passionsfrukt, ananas och citrusfrukter. Mediumfyllig söt kropp. Smak av torkad aprikos, torkad ananas, citrus och honung. Besk och bitter avrundning. Lite obalanserad smak i mitt tycke.
