skoisirius (1565) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle few years back from a shop in Seattle. Big malty nose. Good overall DIPA, bit louder than some, but not too standoutish.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2013
Great nose of purest hops you can imagine. Bit sweetish with even some nutty aromas. Has a lot of malt sweetness to offer which is more of a Bockbier-style with lots of alcohol. Nice one.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
I am a big fan of IPAs, especially since this style isn’t that much available in Germany. This one has got a clear deep amber colour with low creamy head and medium body. Nose of spicy hops. Taste of grass, ripe aromatic hops, coriander greens and pink pepper seeds. The finish is quite dry and light bitter. This clearly is no beer of pure refreshness, but more of enjoy and taste. Enjoyed it a lot.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
330 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Golden body with a decent off-white head. Hoppy aroma with peach, grapefruit and pine with caramel malt. Flavor is caramel malty with a dominating citric fruity bitterness. Straight forward tasty double IPA.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Bottled, 330ml aged 3.5yrs from Sainsbury’s, Banbury. Amber with white head. Fuller bodied IPA, nicely roasted fruity malts, some alcohol, some plummyness. The hops have become less sharp and more integrated, smooth and orange like. Some sweetness. A very decent beer aged well, good stuff.
