4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taster at Bavarian Lodge. It starts off looking like any IPA; a coppery malt body with a tinge of red, under a bubbly head. This beer was focused on Citra hops, which gave my nose impressions of mostly sweet grapefruit, but a bit of flower and pine needles. The first sip, though, is thick with malts. After a few sips, the hop taste settles more toward orange flowers or peel. There’s a touch of sweetness like a creme candy, too. The alcoholic this brews 10% above, but it stays nice and warm, and gently cleanses the thick malt so it doesn’t stick in my mouth. It definitely has hophead appeal, but its taste is finely tuned.

6 oz pour from chilled bottle into sniffer glass. Mildly dry, but not too much, and fruity. Not too sweet, full body and dry. Good balance. Honey finish, sweetness throughout.

Zarówno w smaku jak i w aromacie niestety utlenione. Czuc jednak spore ilosci chmielu które w świeżym piwie muszą robić robote. Na plus swietnie ukryty alkohol

Bit strong for me. And way overpriced. Brewer seems to he growing in respect however. $18 a bottle.

Flaska från Best of Beer, Ålborg.
Dimmig mörkare bärnsten, svagt skum.
Doftar sur disktrasa och lätt av blomster.
Väldigt söt, kännetecken hos Evil Twin? För sliskig, beskan väger inte upp.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Pours an orange copper with a small off-white head that leaves a nice film througout. Floral hop and resin aromas stand out with strong bready, caramel malt aromas present. Taste is more of the same, nice bitterness and medium sweet on the palate. Quite sticky and rich. Gets a little boozy as it warms up on the finish. Solid.

A pretty solid, big IPA. Kind of similar to Stone IPA hop profile, not as citrusy, but more floral, piney, and earthy. Good hop bitterness, with a bit more malt strength and sweetness than a West Coast IPA, more similar to Dogfish Head 90 Minute. Quite solid, also goes good with Yin.
