COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

probstblueribbon (3157) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a creamy orange-light tan head. Aroma: Quite brothy/savoury with an almost barfy note (not a good start!), quite malty – mainly caramel and some melanoidin, smells thick, some citrus and pine/resin. Palate: Medium-full body, full, creamy carbonation, syrupy. Flav.: More citrus, pine and pepper and less brothy/barfy, rich maltiness, a little estery; sweet with big bitterness and a boozy, sweet malty finish with some peppery pine, numbs the mouth.

I hope that Yin is better than Yang.

Nocturne (927) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours out a clear amber shade. Lots of head that shrinks back quickly. Resinous nose with pine and caramel. Fruity, jammy, herbal, winter berry taste. Opening sweet but then turning spicily, fruity bitter. Hides the strength well. Nice attempt at a fruity DIPA.

radzik5555 (465) - Gdynia, POLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Bursztynowe, klarowne z iskrą. Obfita piana w kolorze złamanej bieli. Trwała, głównie drobno pęcherzykowa i bardzo ładnie koronkuje.
Aromat: Słodki, chmielowe, melon dojrzały, marakuja, liczi, miód wielokwiatowy. Alkoholu nie czuć. Ma taką lekka orientalną nutę ale nie wiem co to.
Odczucie: Gładka faktura kremowo-oleista, wysycenie średnie+, ciało średnie.
Smak: Początek słodki, owocowy, po chwili przechodzi w bardziej wytrawne owoce. Na finiszu pojawia się grejpfrutowa średnio intensywna goryczka oraz rozgrzewający alkohol.
Całość: Świetne IIPA, trzeba znaleźć Yinga

Pyobon (1012) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
(Bottle) Slightly hazy amber brown with short-lived loose off-white head. Pleasant aroma with hoppy pine to the fore with pleasant notes of citrus, toffee and maybe floral hints. Lovely palate with a fairly full body and plenty of fine creamy carbonation. Excellent taste too that evolves from a rich smooth sweet malty start to a long assertively bitter finish. In the mid palate the hop flavour steadily develop providing complexity and balance to the malt, but initially little bitterness. Considering the alcohol content it is well hidden - but there’s a lot to hide it under. An excellent beer.

flatmatt (1187) - Northville, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed orange amber, but with lots of small to medium particles, and an off-white head. Very juicy citrus aroma, fruity berry, pine. Flavor is more pine, grassy, and floral hops, still some citrus in there, though. Tastes a bit stale. Still pretty good, though.
