L’IPA più buona mai sentita, sia nell’aroma che nel gusto! Ottimo aroma prolungato!

Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. Amber coloured with tropical and juicy fruit flavours, notes of orange marmalade and a sweet followed by a bitter finish. Superb!

Koelschtrinker (17676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 2, 2012
Grasig hopfiger Beginn, der zudem äußerst fruchtig ist: Passionsfrucht, Mango, süße Traube. Das Bier bleibt auf dem fruchtigen Hopfentrip, dabei bleiben bittere Noten weitestgehend aus, selbst im Abgang sind nur Spuren davon vorhanden. Trotz der hohen Intensität weich, vollmundig, zum Ende blumiger. Beeindruckend! 11/13/14/13/11/13

Golden amber color with little head. Funky pine needle aroma. Sour fruit taste with a bit of bread. Medium to weak body. Tried with Paul in a’dam in 2012.

Vaiz (4327) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is very fruity fresh hops, somewhat floral and slightly spicy. Flavor is bitter and very fruity. Almost suggesting sweetness. Very clean and a lovely hop variety.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012
Riktigt frisk och fin IPA. Smak och doft av ananas, mandarin och humle med en angenäm grapebeska som ligger kvar i munnen.

Cunningham (7048) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
Light hazy golden dark orange colour with a white head. Moderate sweet aroma with a rich citric hoppy nose. A fine malty background and a balanced sweetness in the flavour. Very fruity and citric. More over to the orange side. Feels more like mandarin. Anyway a lovely tasty and refreshing ale!
[Bottle from Systembolaget in Uddevalla, Sweden]

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
2012-06-06, bottle at Ørsted, Copenhagen, bb 13-03-13, batch 071, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Bright copper-amber color, with a haze, and compact head. The aroma is strong and persistent, very strong manure. Good caramel flavor, some pleasing residual sweetness, the hopping provides a nice fruity side, while the bitterness is well managed, never excessive.
Great sessionable, balanced beer.

2012-04-11, bottle from Birratrovo, Como, bb 12.03.13, batch 071, 9-4-8-4-17=42
Beautiful amber color, the head disappears quickly. Wonderful aroma of tropical fruits and passion fruit, pungent, with a trace of manure. Good caramel flavor, some malt and toffee; it seems drier than the other beers of this last series; there is some yellow fruit jam, and powerful hopping, carrying some resins and fruits.
Dynamic, fresh, excellent; wonderful fruity character, but lower final than the Motueka.

A really good IPA that. Very fruity taste and smell and very well. However, I miss a little taste. Do hardly any taste at all. When I would drink this I did not think it would be so good. This beer, I would easily buy again. Raw beer this is.
