Borresteijn (5180) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
33cl Can from De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy orang colour, white head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruits, resin, oranges, caramel, sweet and hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, mostly fruity though, orange, citrus, tropical fruit like mango, resin, nice but mellow bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied, soft but suitable carbonation. Really nice IPA IMHO.

This is a decent IPA but not really a standout. It’s a bright orange color with a foamy white head of mixed bubbles. It smells of sweet orange peel and woody pine. It is on the thick side for the style and overall has a sweet juiciness which is not entirely unpleasant. It finishes with a sticky resinous bitterness and some lingering honey-like sweetness. This stuff is good enough but I don’t see myself seeking out this again.

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
A hazed golden amber ipa with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with nice floral hops, grapefruit pulp, classic and resinous. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with light floral hops, pink grapefruit, light treacle, pleasant.

steview (1035) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 21, 2014
A little darker and maltier in what I like for an IPA. The malts really shine with the hops. I would prefer the hops to completely takeover otherwise I am expecting a stronger pale ale.

fkoolen (469) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2014
Can at home. Slightly hazy orange colour, off-white creamy head. Crisp, piny, tropical fruity and bitter hops with grainy, creamy and sweet malts. Iron in the nose. Lingering piny aftertaste, dry too. Good body, refreshing but oily mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation.

Fatehunter (1518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours three fingers of foamy head on a clear straw body. The aroma has pine and lemon, then a bright spot of mango and pineapple. The taste has moderate pine and lemon bitterness, balanced by big malt. Short bitter finish. The texture is crisp. Really enjoyable.

Caldera IPA pours garnet-amber into the tulip, aroma of muted hops coming through the mouth of the can. The head is frothy, off-white with a dense stickiness on the glass. Aromas of caramel and pine resin lightly glaze my olfactory senses; the sips that follow confirm and carry along a sensation that presents less flavor than bitter. The warmer it gets, the less aromatic, the more bitter; and the carbonation, although quite good at the beginning, has dropped significantly. The finish is extremely dry and long. Where I enjoy a high IBU, this is more IBU and less flavor than I prefer. There could be a better balance. My thoughts? I like it cold, but this is meant to be imbibed quickly. Don’t sit around and savor it, because it does change quite a bit in a short while.

Svesse (6735) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2014
(Can, Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 24 Aug 2014) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, resin and caramel. Malty, hoppy taste with grapefruit, resin, orange peel, caramel and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh, tasty and solid IPA. Despite the impressive hop presence still in excellent balance. Very nice.
