Countbeer (5728) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, vast and slowly changing, beige creamy colored foamy head on top of a deep dark red beer, when hold in the light it appears to be an almost clear deep ruby colored beer. The aroma is nothing like an IPA, a thin mix of caramel, autumnal herbs, brown sugars/molasses, grains, a hint of sharp hop citrus and stingy herbs. The flavours are like the aroma nothing like an IPA: yeast, sharper herbs, hint of hops, bitter, sharper herbs, stingy hops, malts, nuts, caramel, meal, porridge and dusty malts. Aftertaste is bitter with herbs, yeast, wood, malts and (sharper) herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. I hope I had a wrong bottle, if not, this is not a good IPA, while I had other IPA’s from this brewery that were pretty ok, this beer does not come close to those beers, let alone IPA’s in general. Pity!

Zlotta (836) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2016
From bottle at Winterbierfestival Gouda 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, brown sugar, raisins and honey. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, honey, apricot jam and some pine, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Franksv6 (700) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2016
Red brown beer with a good white head. Taste likes a IPA with extra hurbs. Taste is bitter hops, fruity, citrus and a lot of hurbs.

tricksta_p (2679) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, fruits, red berries, herbal notes, hops. Flavour is medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Solid body. IPA is a bit of a stretch, more like a hoppy winter ale.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s May 2014 tasting - London. Pours clear, rich amber with a white cream head. Tangy and meaty fruits on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, tangy, with bread, berries, some leaves and earth. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet to finish with light tangy and leathery fruits. Not too bad.

Tasted in bottle. Lots of malt and not very hoppy. Does not smell like much. Tastes a bit sweet and rounded. It gained some points after being out of the fridge for a while.
