RedhawkFIN (52) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
330ml bottle@home (from Bier-Deluxe) hazy deep golden colour with plentiful rocky white head. Aroma has lots of citrus and pineapple with some mandarine and grass innthe background. Taste is lightly sour and bitter but mostly quite sweet and fresh. Palate is medium bodied and little sticky with crispy and lively carbonation. Hopfenstopher Comet IPA is not really an IPA as the hops are very much in the background and sweet but fresh tropical fruitiness is on the front. Easily drinkable but could really have used a lot more hops.

(Bottle, Vagabund Brauerei, Berlin, 23 July 2014) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with tropical fruit, mango, citrus, peaches and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of tropical fruit, mango, citrus and a fairly dry finish with a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty IPA. Nice one.

TET (1642) - FINLAND - JUL 30, 2014
A yellow beer with a very big and blond head. The nose is strongly citrusfruity, mandarin, grapefruits, oranges, mangos and some pine. Taste has also lots of citrusfruits, oranges, grapefruits, medium bitterness that evolves slowly. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, could be smoother. Exotic hops are used (Hallertauer Comet, Hallertauer Saphir and Hallertauer Taurus) for this strongly citrusfruity IPA. Good.
