MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
(bottle, 33cl, slightly gushing) Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with a big and off-white foamy head. Yeasty, deep hoppy aroma with notes of mango, pineapple and grapefruit, as well as mildly flowery and spicy accents. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a modest carbonation. Fruity and slightly floral hoppy taste with funky yeasty notes and a sweet malty and delicately caramelly background; moderately bitter hoppy spicy and slightly fruity finish with a balancing malty sweetness. Nice little Belgian Farmhouse IPA from Holland. 20.VI.15

Piwko kupione w Gliwickiej Tabakierze. Po przelaniu do tulipa piana puszta. Mocno wyczuwalna goryczka pozostawiająca ładny bukiet owocowych aromatów.

Przylus (380) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Aromat przez chwilę tropikalny, ale potem przemrożona włoszczyzna i kukurydza z puszki. Barwa złota, mętne. Poana ładna, drobna. Smak kwaśny, kukurydziany. Goryczka średnia, nieprzyjemna.

2014-02-04, bottle from Pibar, Lausanne, 6-5-6-2-11=30
bottled Aug 23rd 2013, hence a bit old

Light amber color, bright and clean, with generous frothy head. The aroma is hoppy, continental, a bit grassy and nutty, also lightly funky. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; there was probably some extra refermentation in the bottle; malt flavor, some caramel, and a strong wood bitterness, a bit tannic; the hops seem old.
Average beer.

2014-01-22, bottle at På Besök, Malmö, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Deep blond color. The aroma is a bit stale, also hoppy and fruity, maybe they didn’t pour yet today. The flavor is very spicy, with light residual sugars, strong bitterness, late hop resins and some citrusy/orange bitterness.

ippopotamo36 (871) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 2, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased at the Hoppy imp. in Greece and consumed in Kosovo. Bottle is produced 21/08/2013 (15 months old). Pours a reddish amber colour, oily texture, cloudy and with a huge and compact off-white head. Nose: very mild (the age?) feel of citrusy hops, grapefruit basically, a hint of honey. Mouth: not much to report (sadly), only some residual bitterness. It stays decent but I assume it was far better when bottled. My rating refers to this beer 15 months old then.
