Grapefruit, orange in the nose with something else that’s great but I can’t put my finger on it. Taste is also very citrusy with stoutish overtones that work remarkably well together. Yeah, definitely grapefruit in the flavour, lovely ! Mild carbonation and good, tight palate make this a winner.

spacecube (1222) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
330ml bottle, pours black with a white head. Aroma is very hoppy, passion fruit and mango over roasted malt. Medium bodied with a rich malt backbone. Oily texture with a fine carbonation. Medium sweetness combines with juicy fruit hoppiness, finishing lightly bitter with a tropical fruit aftertaste.

Moravius (756) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Grebhan’s, Bremen. - Tiefstes Schwarzbraun, üppiger dunkelbeigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase feinste Nadelwaldaromen, Mokka, etwas Karamel, ein wenig Grapefruit. - Im Antrunk enorm schwer, mit wuchtigen, fast verbrannten Röstaromen (ungezuckerter Espresso), Kiefernnadeln und strenger, holziger Herbe. Malzsüße kommt kaum vor. Mild rezent, fast dickflüssig. Im Abgang kräftige Bittere mit holzig-harzigen Zügen. Enorm langer Nachtrunk von heftiger Bittere. - Wuchtig-strenges IPA, in dem kräftiges Röstmalz und eine Überdosis Aromahopfen einander erschlagen. Ist mir etwas zu heftig.

Lodgewick (29) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Almoust black drink with longlasting thick beige head. Coffee and citrus are main factors in aroma. Some notes of tropical fruit and spruce as well. Aroma is well balanced but surprisingly mild. Coffee is rounded by white chocolate in the taste. Grapefruit is the main hop flavour, but some woody touch as well. A note of alcohol when the drink warms. Palate is dry and full. Great beer to enjoy.
