Alengrin (4467) - BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2016
My first Eel River beer, a brewery I frankly never heard of before I stumbled upon this bottle. Very thick and frothy, heavily cobweb-lacing, rocky, beaten egg-like, spongy head over a warm orange blonde beer with a feather light haze throughout, as a result of a diffuse suspension of yeast bits, becoming cloudy orange with sediment. Aroma breathes a West Coast IPA character but in a somewhat restrained way, with impressions of orange peel, softly pine-scented air freshener (Chinook!), biscuit, lemon zest, toasted onion (Simcoe!), dried mango, spruce resin, raspberry, some lychee, old cake, hints of hemp, sweet-clover, vanilla sugar, green banana and guave. Crisp, sweetish onset of apricot, dried mango and mandarin with redcurrant sourishness underneath, minerally accents but medium in carbonation, supple mouthfeel with lightly caramelly malt sweetness, biscuity accents and a bittering toasted edge in the end, matching well with a hoppy finish providing a grapefruity, mildly resinous, spicy bitterness along with retronasal floral, citrus peel- and very softly pine-like aromas but at the same time allowing most of the juicy, caramelly malt sweetness to creep through, all going down in a pleasantly aromatic, bittersweet, citrusy way; I also get a hint of warming alcohol, which I think shouldn’t be the case in a beer of less than 7% ABV. Decent IPA, but quite stereotypical and not adding much to an already vast array of West Coast IPAs, bit cliché and unnoticeable, but technically correct and pleasant enough, with an agreeable balance of biscuity malt sweetness and resinous hop bitterness. I guess this is more ’luscious’ when young (and / or from tap), but in this form, I sure enjoyed it and would revisit if given the chance.

Excellent refreshing beer. Lots of floral notes in the nose but a well balanced beer.

larsga (7251) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2016
Huge offwhite head. Clear yellow body with visible particles. Resiny mealy toffee aroma with raisiny citric notes. Dry-sweet resiny mealy toffee taste with sugary spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish wooden spicy toffee aftertaste with sugary mealy notes. Nice. Would probably be fantastic if fresh, which it’s definitely not. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

From a bottle. Big biscuit aroma and lots of malt flavours, heaps of hops to balance it out but still maltier than expected, very nice.

Fra flaske på DØE dag 1, mai-16: lys gylden med fint skum som varer. Herlig humlearoma og -smak med alle de rette ingrediensene, slik skal en apa smake! Tropiske frukter, litt krydder og pepper. Flott kropp.
