TET (1578) - 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.

Schönes Triple Hop. Gute Nase, reißt mich nicht ganz vom Hocker. Die Flasche könnte schöner gestaltet sein.

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.

c0fein (180) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
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..
