fantti (889) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja sameana, vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja vahvaa pitsiä jättävä. Pieniä hiivapartikkeleita leijailee myös oluen joukossa. Hajussa on pääasiassa karamellista ja vohvelimaista maltaisuutta, sitrusta, mutta myös tiettyä ruohomaisuutta, joka osuu hyvin yhteen greippisyyden kanssa. Makunsa puolesta tämä DIPA tuntuu olevan karamellisuuden puolelle kääntyvä humaloinnin ollessa taaempana. Vohvelimaisuutta, maamaisuutta ja greippiä löytyy, mutta nyt taustalla on jotain keksimäisyyden, pähkinän ja sitruunan sekoitusta. Mielenkiintoinen yhdistelmä. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, vaikka maussa on karamellia, niin loppujen lopuksi tämä on kuivahko olut. Katkerokin iskee loppuvaiheessa melko hyvin. Hyvä DIPA, joka kääntyy hieman karamellisen puolelle, muttei ole ällömakea. Erottuu hieman massasta, mikä on tässä tapauksessa positiivista.

freretoc (1519) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Très bonne, caractéristique des IPA fruitée et houblonnées, maison ne sent absolument pas l’alcool et donc cette bière est ultra piègeuse. Dégusté une deuxième fois en bouteille de 33cl, couleur dorée et une belle mousse qui tient longtemps, nez complexe sur les houblons citronnés. En bouche explosion de saveur, ça commence avec le pruneau et ça continue avec les fruits secs, ça commence avec le raison, puis l’abricot et la figue. Excellent !

CacheManyHose (543) - HONG KONG - OCT 22, 2013
Tasty beer. Smells very strongly of tropical fruits, pineapple and banana. Some hops and malty breadiness to the aroma, and you can smell the alcohol (9.2%). Tastes of citrus and malt, very bitter. Oily with a full body.

Bamsen78 (4810) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy amber woth airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with a subtle malty note. Intense, bitter flavour of hops with regular notes of citrus and grass. Discernible but unobtrusive alcohol presence. Rather rough aftertaste. A very nice DIPA.

ABS (830) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. No sound when opened. Pours copper, with almost no head. Some carbonation, so it isn’t a bad bottle, luckily. Lots of grapefruit and alcohol nose. Sticky mouth feel. Thick. Bitter, but surprisingly sweet as well. Grapefruit, malt, honey, sugar, hop aroma. This isn’t the worst way to Amarillo:)

visionthing (4482) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours pretty clear deep golden to amber, with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, tropical fruits, caramel, malt and hints of citrus and dried fruits. Quite sweet and a bit like hop juice, noticable alcohol, but quite well balanced. Not as good as I remember it from some years ago, but still a decent DIPA. Medium+ body with average carbonation. Bitter aftertaste with notes of pine and hints of citrus.

maekchu (3267) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Soured fruit and caramel nose, grain, molasses, hay, rabbit pellets. Pretty orange/amber color. Medium caramel initial, juicy fruit and grass. Medium-heavy body. Tasty, but also fairly one dimensional. The Amarillo complements the caramel nicely. More like a barley wine than an imp IPA.

Majek (648) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Little hazy, orange colour with medium and quite stable head. Intensive aroma of grapefruit peel, piney and some alcohol. Taste is well balanced, some resin and caramel sweetness and lots of bitterness (citrus peel, pine). Medium carbonation and full body. Finish is warming and long. Another good one from De Molen!

Nordcore (1246) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Amber, hazy with a offwhite head. Lots of hoppy aroma with some sence of grapes and yeast. Nice medium Bittersweet taste with a hoppy end.
