TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
A fresh fruity smell of citrus and grapefruit, some hidden sweetness of malt. The small white foamy-creamy head has a normal duration, the body is cloudy and orange. A bitter and fruity taste, the finish is long and bitter. The body is light, dry and creamy with a normal carbonation.

Bottle, BBE 14/09/14. Pours orange with a good, fairly sizable, whiet head. Aroma is citrus, orange, mandarin, some resin and caramel. Taste is passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus as well. Not much of a trace of maltiness. Some grass. Light with decent carbonation. Pretty enjoyable.

330ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe

Cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Fresh aroma. Best of hopfenstopfer beer so far (3). It seems that in these hopfenstopfers is some "housetaste" what bothers me because every beer has the same feature. Like dry tart citric liquid pee? Can’t invent better description..

Drank with Thijs 04-05-2014. Okay beer. Nice IPA. Hops are present but the taste is not ’grabbing’, not strong enough. Also too little carbonation. Okay beer, not too god but also not bad.

Hermod (3005) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
33cl bottle from Bier-deluxe. Bb 07/14. Hazy dark orange, thick white head. Aroma heas wheaty, yeasty notes, some nutty and sweet mango notes. Flavor is yeasty with notes of wheat, oranges, dough and spicy notes. I like the spicy notes, but overall not very pleased. Just enjoyed a Comet IPA, single hop, and this one does not come even close. Ok, this has other hops as well but still, it is called Comet IPA. Drinkability ok, but got this lager wibe over it.

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Big white head, vaporates rather quickly. Yellow-brown, foggy and yammy. Aroma has pine, soap, citrus and fruit. Taste has fruit, some pine and fruit. Lacks the bitter IPA punch, more like a pale ale. Ok at that though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (13119) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A dense, finger-thick off-white to light beige head forms over a lightly hazy golden body. The aroma reminds me of blackcurrant bushes, with grass, citrus peel, lemon and some resin notes. Not much maltyness, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor. Balancing bitterness, grass, citrus and lemon in the flavor, with the malts in the far back. A quite straightforward one, but a tad too boring. 140418
