MichaelAwesome (2963) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Not how I think an IPA should be. A bit too much in the sweetish region with belgian style hops. More of a Duvel - but maybe that ´s the good Point about it. Quaffy, nice, warming.

Douberd (1690) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2014
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, poured into a big tulip at home. ABV 6.5% Dark orange golden colour on the body, with a huge white head on top that keeps rising and rising. Lots of activity in there. The head has a great retention. Thick lacing left on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, grassy hops, nutty but fruity too, some floral notes. Taste follows the aroma, grassy fresh hops, grapefruit and citrusy notes, some flowers. Mildly bitter with good bitterness duration. Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Very good IPA.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks :) The beer pours out in a cloudy orange-amber colour with steady big head and medium body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and hops. Taste of ripe hops, Belgian yeast, malt, flowers and apples. Light sour hints and a mild, yeasty finish. It lacks definitely some hops and character when it comes down to this beer being an IPA - but otherwise it ain’t that bad.

mile (2730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Golden, hazy, large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus and light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint tropical fruitiness, piney and some citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, faint caramel, lots of citrus - piney fruitiness. Well hopped IPA, but finish lacks fruitiness - also bitterness gets bit soapy and harsh.

SimonBeer (61) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2014
It pours a layer of frothy foam of one finger thick. The foam disappears quickly, it leaves a small layer of foam. The beer looks clear, golden/orange. Aroma’s of tropical fruit, grass, banana, a bit soapy, and a bit of lemon. The taste is really delicious, with a light to medium sweet taste, and a medium to heavy bitter aftertaste, which is quite long lasting. The aftertaste is even a bit medicine-bitterness, which is less nice. In this beer you can also taste a bit of citrus/orange. I really like it! The texture is thin (which isreally like for this type of beer), with a really good carbonation, an almost heavy sparkling carbonation. Overall I really enjoyed this beer, but the medicine-bitterness in the aftertaste is something that I don’t really like. But the sweet, tropical-taste start, which changes to a good bitterness. So only the long-lasting aftertaste is something I don’t like. But overall I really enjoyed this beer, it is a beer that I would like to drink more, and so it gets the total score of 4.

Idiosynkrasie (3232) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with very huge, foamy,fluffy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Floral hoppy aroma, somehow perfumed character, minimally soapy, a touch of red berries. Taste is minimally biting bitter hoppy, floral, minimally piney, fruity hints of red berries; really bitter hoppy, minimally chalky finish. Relatively light body, crude carbonation is too prickling-lively.

Maakun (319) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
cloudy golden color with big fluffy head. Big grapefruit smell, some grass, lemon, malts. Quite bitter, with just enought sweet maltiness to balance it. Slightly sour lemon/berries. Medium body, slightly sticky and lively carbonation. Would expect this to be dry, but it isn’t at all. Really like this.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2013
Orange amber colour, white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, honey. Bitter taste, hops, sweet malts. Quite sweet, bit bitter finish. Quite OK, but somehow this beer is not really coming together for me.
(From 33cL bottle @ Gents Bier Festival)
