MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Bready toast-malty aroma with caramel, peppery spice and delicately fruity hoppy notes. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Hearty toasted malt character with notes of bread crusts, caramel on a delicately fruity hoppy background; bitter-sweet toasty malty finish with a rising hops profile towards the aftertaste, containing mildly fruity and spicy notes. Heavily malty IPA, reminding me more of a dark Bock, nevertheless a likeable brew. 20.X.12

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Cloudy amber colour with tiny, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits and orange. Taste starts sweet with dark fruits and toasted malts, while finish become moderate bitter. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not typical IPA...

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy amber brown color with small, creamy, fully diminishing off-white head and poor lacing. Aroma is caremelly, nutty, moderate yeasty and fruity with orange peel notes. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and toasted malt, following is fresh fruity, while finish is quite bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. It’s good, but seems to me so uncommon IPA, maybe because I prefer American aromatic hops...

hrabren (23) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle 0.33 from Julius Meinl, Vienna. Red copper murky color, off-white frothy short lasting head. Strong aroma of hops and spices, some alkohol notes, red fruits. Tastes bitter, but pleasant, could be even more bitter. Full body, medium carbonation, nice aftertaste. Nothing wrong with this IPA.

hub66 (82) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Belle couleur brune; arômes et goût maltés; texture un peu crémeuse; ressemble plus à une stout qu’à une IPA; manque d’amertume; j’enlève 0.5 points car il y tromperie sur le style (ça n’est pas une IPA)

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours clear, dark red chestnut with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts, biscuity, chewy, some strawberry, peach, light caramel. Medium carbonation, dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, quite malty sweet, some old cheese, light floral and fruity bitterness. Light strawberry. A bit dull.

Saeglopur (156) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle from Merkur Hoher Markt, Vienna. Beatiful appearance: Amber/brown clear body with massive, long-lasting, frothy, beige head with all kinds of differently sized bubbles. Foam leaves a lot of lacing. Wonderful fruit aroma of grapefruit, peach, pine, citrus, litchi and also dark fruits, side by side with a determined caramel, cocoa and malt roastyness. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t really keep what the aroma promises, only light tropical fruit notes, caramel, cocoa and roasted malt. Medium to thin body with a long bitter, roasty and slightly dry, slightly spicy finish. Overall a bit unbalanced. What a pity! As long as you look at it and smell it, this seems like a top class IPA, but the taste doesn’t live up to the aroma and the mouthfeel isn’t satisfying enough. At least it is somehow unique, because of the strong roasted malt presence and still one of the best IPAs from Austria.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle from Marhun, Darmstad, bb 29.04.14
Amber color, dark, hazy, with creamy head. This IPA focuses on the caramel, mellow, rather than the hops; bitter enough, without defined hop traits, although there are some resins; the final is also malty.
Very good.

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle 0,33 l from Amstein - St Légier (CH). Muddy and dark orange beer, nice beige foam, lasting and drawing laces on the glass. Aromas of caramel, jam, apricot-orange, earthy and zesty bitter. The taste is soft, unctuous, fruity-marmelade, caramel with a bitterness without excess, pine, resin, citrus. Finale with zest and gerapefruit, rounded off by caramel. Moderate IPA, there are quite enough excessive.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 15, 2013
from Erzbierschof - pretty clear ruby-amber beer with a little foam left; hints of earth and caramel; fair flowery hoppiness, a well-present malt sweetness, velvety palate and with a moderate bitterness; residual sweetness and long flowery finish with metallic notes
