Pours haze golden amber color, with unstable foamy white head. They used 5 american hops, 4 of them for aroma: and it is strong, without note of an alcohol, just gentle hints of mango, papaya, lychee, grapefruit and red orange. Similar is flavor: without note of an alcohol, but with fruity notes of hops: grapefruit, lychee, mango, etc. Sweetness of malts is discrete hidden behind fruity esters of hops, but still you can detect biscuit like sweetness of malt. It is medium, also hop biterness. Carbonation is low, body is soft, texture is gentle smoothy.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2015
33cl bb02/2016, Maruhn. - Boozy quasi-DIPA without the booziness and a German grainy body makes for a confusingly clean, lean high-octane EU-IPA. Greenish honey pour, smells sweetish of fresh tangerine, caramalt, some chlorophyl and treesap. Taste upfront sweet, then resinous like reduced quince marmelade, with a distinct German graininess (Pilsner malt?) at its core. Oily but clean sticky mouthfeel, candied pine nectar with a lingering bitter finish. - - Considering the 8% there is not as much expression in aroma or evolution in the taste as you’d expect. - - Interesting how both this beer and my palate have evolved since this was still one of Germany’s only IPAs called "Eric’s IPA"...

GoufCustom (1158) - HONG KONG - SEP 4, 2015

330 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Translucent straw amber with no yeast sediments; Less than one-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and zero carbonation.

Aroma: Lightly fragrant Ale malt, with orange, floral, light honey, faint mango, very light pine, light lemon and very light grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet moderate Ale malt, with grains, grapefruit extracts, light orange, sugar, moderate pine, strong resin strong spices, light biscuits, strong lime, quite strong bitter hops and fair grass.

Body: Medium body. Thick, slick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Moderate Ale maltyness in a thick background. Grainy taste is evident. Hops tastes like grapefruits and orange are subtle at first but come on strong as beer warms. Strong non-cloying sweetness. Strong ooze and moderate pine. Very spicy; Booze can be felt throughout but not that strong. Limey hops to round. Strange but alright.

Hoppiness: Light scent of orange, floral, light honey, faint mango, very light pine in nose. Grapefruit, orange, pine, strong ooze, strong spices, strong lime and grass in taste; Bitterness is fairly sharp and increasingly strong for a lasting, moderate to high astringent finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Oozy and sharp bitter to mouth.

Comments: All the nice West Coast hops are featured, but the result is very underwhelming: the fruity aroma is very low-fi, and taste-wise, while getting stronger with further sips, are really not up to the expectation. At 8% abv this may suggest a quasi-IIPA, but the end result is no better than an average APA. Disappointing.

BeerViking (3332) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle, pours deep amber-brown with a fluffy head. Tropical fruit and toffee nose with hints of resin and toasted tangerine, reminiscent of Cointreau. Palate is rich and honeyed, almost syrupy, and dry-fruity, with an orange and grapefruit marmalade bitterness. Excellent.

mateuszk (1115) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Draught. Pours light amber with solid white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, caramel in the back. In taste medium sweet, this has some body, it is not dry. Lot of piney and citrusy notes in flavour. Solid bitterness in the finish. Solid IPA from the sweeter and stronger side.

Cloudy Amber with a medium white head. Aroma had grassy and piney hints. Flavor likewise. Felt like the hops weren’t in best shape.
