WillemsUrenkel (314) - 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!

tiong (3073) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Berlin Bier Shop

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.

VsXsV (1896) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden liqujid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon peel, pine, flowers, light earth, pineapple and bread. Some very light fruity yeast esters. Taste is very light sweet and medium bitter with notes of pineapple, bubble gum, citrus, bread, banana and lemon peel. More estery in the taste. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent IPA.

kingstoni (1345) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with a medium thick foamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange and raspberry. Sweet taste with some bitterness. Medium thin body. Too sweet for me but definitely well done.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a gold body that has a slight haze and supports a nice white head. The aroma offers up malt sweetened hard orange candy, a sweet earthy lime hard candy and a light floral hop note. Interesting, it is on the light side but the various facets are intriguing. Wow, the flavor is malt sweetened juicy citrus goodness that has a great load of flavor and only a moderate level of hop bitterness. It seems to have a mix of clementine, tangerine and orange with a light degree of malt sweetness and a thin ribbon of slightly roasted malts well off in the background. These flavors go very well together. Yet another great tasting brew from this brewery. Yes!

turbothy (1055) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2013
Pours medium golden with a creamy white head. Nice hop aroma - you wouldn’t think this was a German beer. Pleasantly bitter, would drink again.

Case (151) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
Pours light golden color with large white head. Grassy aroma. Taste is very citrusy with grapefruit and lemon. It’s hoppy alright, but there’s no variation in the flavours, it’s just citrus. Would really benefit from a different mix of hop varieties. Good carbonation.

Grima (2041) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours cloudy pale amber colored with huge creamy white head. Smells deliciously hoppy and fruity, with lots of grapefruit and citrus. Starts with citrussy hops, paired with lots of pine wood, spruce and caramel malts. Middle part is still citrus fruity, grassy, with spruce and resin. Goes into a floral hoppy, fruity and caramelly finish with some pine wood. Outstanding german IPA!!

Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bb 14/03/14
Hazy blond color with medium sized head. Strong aroma, earthy, manure, pungent. Smooth mouthfeel; clean flavor, with strong bitterness, and strong manure character, a bit grassy; balanced overall, and very thirstquenching. Very fresh too.

Citrus hop nose. Caramel malt flavor, blueberry, hoppy bitter finish. Nice crispy German IPA.
