COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das Kult-Bier der Nordamerikanischen Micro Brewer. Stärker und mit deutlich mehr Hopfen hat das Bier seinen Ursprung in England, wo es für die Kolonien in Indien gebraut wurde, um den langen Seeweg zu überstehen. Der amerikanische Typ besticht durch den Einsatz von Cascade-Hopfen, der angenehm blumig und würzig im Aroma sich entfaltet, ein unverwechselbares Geruchs- und Geschmacksprofil nach Citrusfrüchten. Hat man diese Biersorte einmal für sich entdeckt, lässt sie einen nicht mehr los. Aber Vorsicht: Amerikanische Brauer beschreiben dieses Bier schon mal folgendermaßen: Das ist ein sehr hopfiges Bier ? Dein Gaumen ist an so etwas nicht gewöhnt ? lass die Finger davon. Das ist nichts für Warmduscher!

Unfiltriertes dunkeloranges Alebier
Rein obergärige Bierhefe kräftige, blumige Hopfen-Noten
Hauptgärung im offenen Gärbottich; Reifung in liegenden Lagertanks
Gebraut nach dem Rezept des Braumeisters Eric Toft von der Schönramer Brauerei
8,0% vol. alc, Stammwürze 17,8%

new 33cl bottles (50cl before), same green design, this time labeled as Camba IPA (Eric is mentioned on the back, though) - This must be hands-down the most authentic IPA brewed on German soil at the moment. It is true to the style, from the full, round and nearly chewable malt base to the bitter but harmonious hop profile, and leaves behind all those others jumping on the IPA-train by creating slightly exotically hopped Keller&Vollbiere (usual suspects) as entry-level Pilsners. Even by US standards, this is a great bitter-hopped IPA with a tasty malt profile. My only quarrel with it is that is rather a DIPA, clocking in at 8 ABV, which makes it slightly alcoholic and less easy to drink with a meal than a normal IPA. Lower the ABV below 7 and this becomes scary teutonic IPA perfection - just don’t tell the Bavarians! (they invited a US brewer anyway, so I guess they cheated)?

I have tasted the beer twice. Once at the Camba Bavaria, which was a perfect drinking experience. Second time in a bottel, which was obviously stored wrongly and the beer was too old. So I try to find some average. Eric’s IPA is, fresh from Tap, probably the best IPA from Germany. Incredible, very American style (no wonder, Eric is a American brewmaster brewing in Bavaria). But is also seems to be a beer that does not like to travel. Drink it where it is brewed! That’s perfect!

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Had a light, sweet, flowery smell with a nice golden color. As India Pale Ale’s go, I was hoping for more of a hop/bitter taste. Light bitterness on the tongue, but not what is expected in an IPA. For the style, it was good, but not great.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Nice looking swing top 50cl bottle pours with a slightly hazy copper body with gold hues and supporting a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up some yeastiness and mineral notes for a brief moment before malt sweetened mango and cantaloupe take over with a slight resiny pine note in the background. The taste is like drinking a cup of malt sweetened mango and grapefruit juice. Behind juicy hop flavor notes is a bit of resiny hop bitterness that seems a little pine like and than a light mineral and yeasty note. Pretty darn rich and tasty IPA.

Nice aroma and mouthfeel but way too sweet for the lack of bitterness. I think it needs more tinkering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slighty sweet. Could use more bitter. Drink cold & fast. Probably again but not necessarily.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Crazy thing drinking the best IPAs in my life from german brewers, isn´t it ? Fruits and hops all the way from start to the end. Quaffy, drinkable, addictive. Would love to drink a second or third one.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2013
So I ordered quite some IPAs online and I must admit quite a few of the American ones were a little bit disappointing. So I had some thoughts before opening this bottle but got quickly really happy. This one is a real fine IPA with no real bitterness at all. It has got a milky amber-orange colour with steady head and crisp body. Nose is little bit too weak but still full IPA-ish. Taste of strong hops, pepper, coriander, cardamom, mild chili and red rice. Really delicious and easy to drink. Great one.

Kristall-König (2102) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2013
Geruch eher leichte Zitrusnote, vornehmlich Erdbeere, Sahne. Antrunk zitrusartig. Mitte würzig, erdbeerbetont. Malzwürziger Abgang, moderat bitter und etwas alkoholisch, fruchtige Erdbeeraromen. Schmackhaft, könnte jedoch markanter sein.

inbirraveritas (1196) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 11, 2013
Bottled. Unclear orange golden colour with a whipped creamy and slowly diminishing off-white head on its top. Low-keyed grapefruity nose. Aroma is ruled by honey and florals underpainted by resin and gentle alcohol. Texture is slick, syrupy. Long grapefruity finish with herbs and somewhat warming alcohol. Nice, enjoyable.

Ködös borostyán színű ser egy krémes kétujjnyi vastag piszkosfehér habgallérral a tetején. Az élénken pezsgő főzet malátás, mustot idéző aromájában fanyar grépfrút, gyanta és (virág)méz tűnik fel, melyet alkoholos hatások festenek alá. A szirupos testességű nedű befejezése keserédes és melengető, amely egy hosszan tartó fanyar utóízt hagy maga után.
