pityu (483) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle - Cloudy deep golden colour, thin off-white head, fair retention, lacing. Tropical fruity nose with some biscuit and carame, pineapple, tangerine. Taste is bread, toffee, pineapple, some passion fruit, grapes. Medium body and carbonation, a bit watery body. Light hop bitterness in the end. More strudy hopping would be better. But its still nice.

pivnizub (9863) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2015
Fles: Hazy, deep golden to light amber coloured, pretty slowly diminishing loose ’n lacy off-white head; mild to moderate exotic-fruity nose (peaches, pineapple), backed by caramalt and a tinge of turpentine; quite solid dryish bitter flavour not without a delicate balancing sweetness, quite soft and medium bodied; lingering dry piney and pale-malty finish. Yes, good…

MichaelAwesome (6290) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Angenehm im Hopfen mit klassischen Anklängen von Schweiß, Zitrone und Grapefruit. Dahinter etwas vanillin und getreidig. Absolut in Ordnung, wenn auch kein Klassiker.

tomekk1978 (1241) - Z±bki, POLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Barwa: złocista / jasno bursztynowa, lekko zamglona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: słodowy (zboże z lekkim karmelem) oraz łagodnie chmielowy (głównie cytrusowy) oraz trochę alkoholowy. Niestety również nuty nieco papierowe, co sugeruje utlenienie. Smak: słodowy, raczej pełny, umiarkowanie słodki z chmielową kontrą, ale goryczka (owocowa) niezbyt wysoka i raczej łagodna. Następne IPA z De Molena, tym razem nie zachwyca. Jest poprawnym piwem, ale niezbyt wyrazistym. Trzeba jednak obiektywnie przyznać, że jest ono ponad 10 miesięcy od rozlewu, zatem aromat chmielu mógł się nieco ulotnić i efekt nie jest już tak ciekawy na początku. Na minus także wyraźnie krzywo przyklejana etykieta. Na degustację czeka na szczęście jeszcze nieco świeższe Rye IPA...
