33cl Amber copper with white persistent foam. Nose is fruity and floral, very aromatic. Medium to full body, a bit syrupy. Taste is hoppy, fruity, with an herbal spicy long end and aftertaste.very alchoolic however.

Habanero (2500) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with an average, lacing, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and vanillanotes.Sweei flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice DIPA.

Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little dry. Sweetish malts, dry cream. Little alcohol spice. Mildly spicy orange hops. Light dry finish. Pretty clunky for a dipa but a passable beer.

MartinT (7760) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This muddled Double IPA manages to share oranges and resins through caramelized sweetness in an otherwise hot and yeasty profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam tops the opaque amber.
-The finish is surprisingly not excessively bitter.
-Alcohol warmth is not necessary in here, in my opinion.
-This may be flavourful, but the execution is too unrefined to showcase all these characterful hops.
-This is the type of Double IPA which is common in countries where the style is quite new. More hops, more malt, more alcohol, yes, but the result doesnít necessarily yield more flavour or more pleasure.

Bottle.

Kauge (73) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Bergamo airport (Ä 6) in June 2014. Pours a deep copperish amber with a tan, retaining head. The aroma jumps out of the bottle straight into the brain - itís terrific! A tropical fruit cocktail. Sweet caramel there, too, with some spicy tones. Taste is more malty - itís a sweet caramelly-biscuity base with a big tropical hoppy bitterness on top of that. A medium body, soft carbonation, silky smooth mouthfeel, and a massive bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, too. Perfect to end a hot, tiring midsummerís workday.

Countbeer (4327) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Small creamy foamy head on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer. Aroma has lots of tropical fruit, some hop flowers, some herbs and light spicy tone and a carbo gass sprinkle. Flavours of exotic fruits, bitters, hops, flowers, cream, malts, grass, herbs and some corn. Aftertaste is bitter, malty, grassy and some hops with a fruity edge. Low carbo, oily silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light oily texture.

Idiosynkrasie (3641) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, copper colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Citrusy, minimally sweaty, piney hop aroma, hints of orange and lemon, a touch of pineapple, biscuity caramel malty basis. Taste is crisp bitter hoppy, citrusy, notes of lemon, orange, a touch of pine, caramel malty backbone. Quite standard in a sense (or to put it this way, following a distinguishable ideal), but exactly the standard that took great efforts for the precursors to develope it over years, and therefore exactly the level of artisanship you have to reach as a brewer before you seriously should think about setting new standards, about improvement and variation of a style; hence not avant-garde, but a really nice DIPA.

Dark amber orange coloured brew. Sweet and grassy bitterness combined decent. Not bad at all.

Hazy golden with small head. Apricot, mango, honey with a long bitter aftertaste. High alcohol quite well hidden.

Ragnampiza (350) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - APR 18, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Dark sunrise orange/light amber, pretty hazy, with a tiny, frothy yellow-ish head. Not much one the nose, moderate citrusy hops, slightly floral, perhaps some red fruits (berries), burnt caramel and toffee, but quite fruity all around. Nice balance in the mouth between a resiny and piney hoppyness and a warming, sweet caramel stickyness. Very mild bitterness, light boozy finish. Soft carbonation, on the higher side of medium body, slightly oily texture. The alchool could be more hidden, but overall itís a well crafted DIPA. Very nice indeed.
