Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2013
Goldgelbes DIPA mit mittelprächtig viel Schaum. Intensives Citrus-Hopfenaroma mit Anklängen von anderen tropischen Früchten (Grapefruit, Ananas). Mildwürziger, süßer Beginn, der vom aromatischen Hopfen wunderbar abgelöst wird. Der Alk. ist sehr gut eingebunden und nicht spritig. Tolles Bier!

ElDesmadre (1623) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. The aroma is Citra hop dominance with some notes of caramel shimmering through. Other than the latter, the beer smells of citrus, grapefruit, citrus zest, mango, mandarin, it’s also floral and marginally piney. Thick mouthfeel with a powerful malty base and oily hops. Bitter and warming finish, light sweet and light astringent main part. Powerful and very enjoyable!

Hermod (3338) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2012
33cl bottle fro Bierzwerg. 01/2012. Poured hazy amber with a thick, white head. Aroma is grapefruity, citrusy and light sweet. Flavor has citrus, floral and tropical fruityness. Quite sweet, but high drinkability. Bitter hoppy finish with fruitiness lingering long after. Not the freshest example I think, but still quite drinkable.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, alc. 10.0 %, batch #01/2012)
Slightly hazy amber color, small steady white head. Grass, cat piss and grapefruit in the nose. Medium to full bodied. Quite sweet, tropical fruity-honeyish flavor then citrusy Citra flavors. Lingering bitterness. Sweetness covers alcohol well. Although a bit sticky, quite delicious.
