Luppolo, Luppolo, Luppolo! Il migliore che si possa trovare in una bottiglia. Per gli amanti dell’amaro!

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear rich copper with a foamy thick off-white head. The nose is kinda earthy bitter with some grapefruit rind and earthy pine, and a touch of sweet yeasty funk. Smooth yet bitter flavor with some orange and grapefruit rind, a touch of bright leafy pine hops and a mellowing undertone of pale ale malt and sweet semitropical note. Kinda standard overall but still very well made.

I bought this without know how (potentially) old it was - it was on sale, so that should have tipped me off - I went back and forth on whether to even rate it and decided I would because 1. It’s actually in pretty good shape and 2. I still see it on shelves in quite a few local stores, so it’s definitely still on the market - anyway - there’s certainly a touch of oxidation and a slight staleness to some of the malt character, but it is very minor, and the hops are still spicy, zesty, peppery, with complex floral and fruity characteristics - the overall malt structure is still firm, crackery - the carbonation is tight and frothy - finish is still pretty juicy - just a solid IPA that is showing slight signs of age - the strengths still overshadow/wash out the slight signs of degradation - given the price I got it for (one buck a bottle), I might actually go back and buy the rest.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2014
American-inspired Brussels IPA, apparently a collaboration. Stable, off-white head, peach blond colour. Aroma dominated by grassy and peppery hops, grapefruit, orange zest, bitter honey, unripe peach, spiciness. Citrussy onset, fruity, honeyish malt sweetishness, hearty and spicy in the middle and long, dry, peppery and citrussy hop bitterness in the finish.

nuplastikk (4665) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Tap at Maxs. Unfiltered, deep orange-brown. Not that impressive. Malty and thick, with a noble hop balance. Doesn’t really have any of the fruity esters you might expect from a Belgian IPA. Leaning way into the toffee, caramel malt. OK, sort of uninspired, not much of an IPA.

Habanero (2721) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a lalge, lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, orange, peach, grapefruit and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. An excellent IPA.

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Une collaboration entre De la Senne, Pizza Port et Lost Abbey. Aucune date ne figure sur cette bouteille de 33 cl. Au versement, le liquide est un peu rouillé et sa tête est une montagne beige. Au nez, c’est tout à fait fruité et floral, assez doux en malts roux, boisé, visiblement fromagé et même poivré. Unique ou singulier ou tout simplement efficace mais cohésif pour mes narines et pour la partie de mon cerveau qui se rattache au plaisir simple. Au goût, ce sont des fleurs d’abricots ou de pêches avec du pamplemousse ou des kumquats et des herbes qui poussent sur une base toastée légèrement sucrée. En bouche, le corps reste souple et crémeux tandis que ses bulles adoptent un comportement normal. En finale, les saveurs boisées et poivrées tirent une délicate amertume qui reste courte mais agréable et surprenante. Belle découverte que je m’offre pour le début de mes vacances dans ma verte campagne.

Bottle. Pous a cloudy gold with small frothy off white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a nice fruity hop and resin. Medium mouthfeel with light fruity hop with lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink, good.

Ipa dall’amaro non entusiasmante ma molto saporita, di frutta, agrumi, malto caramellato, con una sfumatura citrica piacevole nel finale. De la senne sa sempre il fatto suo!!

EddyBeer1 (919) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2014
Ambrée opaque, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc crémeux et onctueux, assez épais. Amertume fruitée bien présenté dès les départ avec des notes fruitées de melon, de pamplemousse et d’écorces d’oranges. Une fois de plus, merci De la Senne!

theisti (3270) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 24, 2013
11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a 3 inch loose light tan head. The aroma is caramel malt, lightly toasted and a citrus apricot behind. There is also a bit of mineral and a hint of yeast in the back. The taste is bitter citrus peel up front followed by the toasted malt behind. The bitter mineral earth carries finish. The palate is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and dry earth bitter mineral finish. No bottle date, this may have been a bit past it.
