3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
21/11 0.5 l bottle, thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured orange and very hazy body with medium sized head. Orange hop aroma, sourish in a deteriorated way. Flavor was not so sour though, too yeasty, chalky, little bit of hops. Another one that is not a true IPA. Medium bodied with longer, again yeasty finish. I reckon it was not in very fresh state when we tasted it, but I doubt it would be much better anyway.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, brought from Berlin. Pours a musty orange color with a very stable, white head. Old dusty and faint hoppy aroma with also some metallic notes. Flavor is light bitter worth even some sweety malty notes. Not really like any IPA I know, more like a bitter lager..

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
January 2013: Tap at the brewpub. Had this before, and itís really getting better. The aroma could do with some work: itís quite aanonymous. Taste is fruity, some apples and citrus. Quite bitter - not for the faint hearted. Enjoyed it with some locale cheese. Nice location with lots of local food available, btw.

Hazy golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of sauerkraut, white wine, sour, rather sweet, light fruity, some soap. Sour flavour, light malts, some sweaty hops, yeast, bitter grapefruit. Quite dry. Light hoppy finish, light bitter.
Overall quite fresh and different. But definitely no IPA. Infection, Iím guessing?
