bastarda (395) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 3.7.15:nice IPA. Needs some imagination, though, to let the usual tropical/citrus/pine aromas display their blueberry components; taste has some toasted grain quality to it, seems to be quite typical for what the Comet hops does in the secondary. 12.5.16: kindly shared by Andrea, thanks a lot. Imho Hallertauer Comet hops has a dank quality to it that really morphs into fresh blueberry fruits and brush and as such is one of the most interesting new hops from Germany. In this case, the nose is displaying that love-at-second-sight aromas in an intense and well done way. Underneath, there is some orange-marmelade stickiness of nearly a dipa quality that - for me - spoils the fun a bit. Taste brings more Comet dankness in this well-done, layered way, also backed up by a huge sticky orange marmelade sweetness. On the one hand, it is astonishing that the brewmaster could get all those aromas out of Saphir, Taurus and Comet, on the other hand, it’s a bit too much of everything, almost like two beers in one.

330ml bottle poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, no head, minimal lacing, lots of floaters. S: Grapefruit and citrus hops. T: Followed the nose and added a hint of cork, sharp hit of booze at the finish. M: Slightly thick texture, minimal carbonation, went down pretty well. O: A typical American IPA, pleasant and balanced.

King_Alex_II (1140) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Amber clear color. Hoppy and malty smell. The taste is insanely sweet and boozy. Round hoppy bitter and tart, but a little too heavy on the sweet boozy side. Dry sweetish aftertaste.

CacheManyHose (561) - HONG KONG - MAY 5, 2015
From Brewcraft, drank after TAP. Pours cloudy straw-copper with a massive, thick foamy head. Tonnes of spotty foamy legs. Smells of concentrated musty peach/lemon/lime hop - almost like a cleaning product or a tennis court - with some booze, bready malt sweetness, and hint of clove/pepper. (Sounds like that'd be terrible and overly big but it's not.) Tastes of lemon/lime, floral hop, ends on a sweet lightly spiced malty (like a sweet Pils, very German) note. Decent; somehow looks (even the label!) and tastes like a home brew.
