Lekkere IPA. Mooi goud-brons achtige kleur met kleine schuimkraag. Drinkt lekker weg met hoppige droge afdronk.

Zlotta (2270) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Biermuda’, best before June 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, creamy, stable, white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity and a bit resiny aroma of mango, orange jam, some honey and a bit of pine. Rather sweet and malty, almost cloying, a bit juicy, moderately fruity and a little resiny taste of mango, orange, tangerine, honey and hints of pine, followed by a long, quite bitter, dry and moderately resiny finish. Full body, very creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite tasty although too sweet and malty. Mouthfeel is very good, lacks maybe a bit of carbonation. Overall very nice!

ardeo (179) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle 33. Belle rousse à tête blanche. Nez floral et fruité agrumes (plutôt orange), caramel, houblon. Bouche : l’amertume apparait tout de suite mais sans agresser le palais. Je goûte : orange amère, épices pimentés, résine de pins, caramel, d’autres choses encore ... très bonnes ! Enorme longueur en une amertume surprenante. Et une superbe production NL !

kaserov (227) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 28, 2016
Color ámbar oscuro, tirando a marrón, con capa de espuma de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Aroma complejo, como de mermelada envasada hace siglos, con un toque de resina y mucha humedad. Interesante mientras está fría, pero cuando va atemperando se pierde la humedad y pasa a ser mermelada envasada hace siglos con un toque de alcohol. Al paladar es también una Imperial IPA compleja. Muy maltosa. El lúpulo llega al momento de tragarla. Y después llega un amargor potente que pierde gracia cuando la cerveza va atemperando porque se convierte en amargor alcohólico. Como digo, rara, pero no floja. Los IBUs son reales por una vez, seguro.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 03/17 Pours a big rocky white head holding strong on a hazy copper body. Punchy hop nose - cooked citrus, glace orange, leafy resin, green melon/mango sort of thing happening with a caramel malt presence. Full body, oily texture, creamy sort of carbonation. Packs plenty of character - leafy, woody, citrus hops, unripe tropicals, resiny, lingering with a big wallop of bitterness lingering on the finish. Hefty double IPA, plenty of bitterness!

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle shared by Jan, thanks. Lightly lacing, snow white, medium thick, stable head over a hazy orange blonde beer. Aroma of toasted onion or even garlic, grapefruit peel, old cheese, dried mango, paprika-flavored potato chips, orange, gin, toasted bread. Clean fruity onset with hints of green banana and passion fruit, medium carbo, smooth but ’full’, bit oily mouthfeel, pleasantly biscuity and lightly caramelly malt core, long resinous and aromatic hop finish, bittering in a gentle but effective way, piney and toasted sweet onion-like, grapefruity as well, paired with a hint of warming, gin-like alcohol. Excellent Dutch craft beer and excellent example of this style, even from this somewhat older bottle.

jinroh (1242) - ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours golden side of amber, decent foam. Aroma has some hop character but its mainly just sweet. Malt sweetness with a touch of herbal hops. Taste has these two sensations even more pronounced. Really sweet, even sickly sweet body, herbal bitterness wrapping up everything you can find here. Decent DIPA, not amazing but well, if it wasn’t that sweet I would probably drink this again.
