ThirstyBird (1454) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a golden color with a hint of haze and a cream colored head. The smell is floral with citrus and honey. The taste is honey, ripe melon, citrus with a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body, slick with average and tight carbonation. An interesting and very tasty brew!

aleigator (173) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from P&m-Getränke. Epic big, foamy head, with cloudy, yellow color. Bursting with lovely aromas, of apricot, peach, kiwi, grapes and honey, which go along exeptional well - smells great. Unusual complexity coming from a noticable taste of berries, merging well with fruity, and hoppy impressions. Taste gets even better, when the malt body becomes recognizable, adding a decent body to the beer. The emerging taste stays long on the palate, without getting washed away by the usual IPA bitterness, with is hardly perceptible at all. In this particual case I do not really miss it, because the decent bitterness adds a refreshing note to the beer, just as the vell balances carbonation, which creates a enjoyable finish. It is easy to drink, because of the restrained bitterness and the well hidden alcohol, but never gets boring thanks to the inclusion of comet hops and an overall well balanced body.

Secondo me il comet non è così saporito e caratteristico da poter essere usato "in singolata", e la birra ne risente con una deriva del suo carattere in un grigio anonimato. Amara, fruttata, buona base maltata, ma da una ipa io mi aspetterei qualcosa di più intenso e intrigante. Per il resto, piacevole e beverina.

WillemsUrenkel (415) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2013
0,33 l bottle, with clear labeling. Pours hazy flat orange, mighty white head. The nose ist sweet hopy with grapefruit. Starts not so hopy bitter as expected. More moderate with a malty background, caramell, earthy and citrus on a very complex base. Later combined with koriander and nuts. A little bit sweet at the end but very drinkable. Recommended!

Pours yellowish orange with a massive foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, zesty fruits, citrus and orange peel. Taste is grassy, bready and malty with notes of earthy fruity notes and citrus. Finish is zesty, stingy and hoppy with grassy and earthy notes. Nice IPA with German hops.
