Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 27, 2013
A gentle haze punctuate this straight golden ale which develops a towering frothy, dense white foam. Resinous and fairly green, herbal nose delves into the spicy, bready yeastiness to raise up a chivey, accentuated spicy profile. Not as fresh as I should have drank it, but I can see how the mostly faded dry-hopping must have been strongly flowery and resinous earlier on. At this mature stage (probably closing on 1-yr old), the yeast is fairly present though fortunately not stealing the show from the hops and the malt remains just gently cerealic and on the pale, bready side of the spectrum. This makes for a straightforward oiffering that does not necessarily strive for balance, but rather focuses on hops and I can see how enjoyable that must be for variety’s sake in Belgium. Fairly dry, yet convincingly warm and bold for a 6% offering, offering a relatively dense texture presumably thanks to the non-filtration and smallish, tighter than average bubbles. Hop-forward indeed despite having several months under its belt (BB Apr. 2014). Pretty good, though at this stage, it’s stronger on bitterness than aromas.

alteregoo (710) - POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Piana drobna i średnia, obfita, długo się utrzymuje i nieźle oblepia szkło. Barwa złota, opalizująca. Aromat świeży, przede wszystkim cytrusowy i lekko świerkowy. W smaku wytrawne, lekkie, bardzo orzeźwiające - tu króluje żywica, grejpfrut, cytryna oraz odrobina kwiatowo ziołowych nutek. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, przyjemna, aczkolwiek odrobinę trawiasta. Wysycenie średnie, drobne.
Przyjemne, lekkie IPA o bardzo czystym, wręcz pilsowym profilu słodowym. W aromacie i smaku dominacja chmielu Citra, choć warto byłoby nieco zintensyfikować zapach...

Bottle at Brewdog Brussels. Pours a deep brownish caramel amber. Hoppy and dark caramel. Flavour is mainly bitter, some sweetness also. Medium body. Lovely beer.

This is a dry-hopped beer, pours dark gold with a nice white foam. Taste is obviously pure hop, like the label says. Bitter and fruity yet very soft and balanced.

ALIBALI (283) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 14, 2016
Ein wahnwitziger Sud befindetet sich in der ungeöffneten Flasche. Wir haben uns dazu entschieden, diesen durch mehrfaches Schütteln in der 0,66l Flasche zu verteilen. Keine schlechte Entscheidung wie ich denke. Heraus kam ein optisch perfektes Bier und auch alle anderen Kriterien für ein IPA werden überdurchschnittlich erfüllt. Fruchtigkeit/Hoppiness/Ausgewogenheit. Alles da. Wundervoll!!! Aus den Micra Store Eindhoven für ca.6 Euro.

Kauge (1323) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle from Sip in Tallinn. BB 02.2017. Pours slightly hazy amber with a huge creamy white head. Retention and lace very good. The aroma’s sugary and flowery sweet with notes of bitter citrus, and tingling spiciness of Belgian yeast. Tastes more bitter than sweet, flavour of citrus and malts, yeast and resiny notes. Unfortunately rather dull and flat on the palate, oily slick with faint if any carbonation (would almost rate it 2/5). Pretty good nonetheless.

Bottle from Willems. It pours clear amber with a medium off white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with light spicy notes. Citrus hoppy flavor with sweet malty and bready notes.

Bottle, orange and nice foam. It's a bit harsh to start with, but gets a bit better and smoother. Would drink it again, wouldn't recommend directly ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
