Bouteille 33cl, thanks Tomaz. BB 26.02.2014. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux épais laissant une belle dentelle sur les rebords du verre. Arôme rappelle ce côté vert houblonné avec pas mal d’alpha qui se rapproche du sac de houblons frais avec pas mal de notes très envoûtante d’agrumes. Palais de pin, huileux, frais avec ici encore ce côté très vert des houblons frais. Note citronnelle et pamplemousse, pointe d’épice. Bière intéressante sous tous les angles accompagnée d’une très belle balance des malts et houblons. Le tout reste très désaltérant et mettant bien à profit les houblons.

Bottle 0.33l from P&M Bonn. Pours cloudy dark yellow with firm white head. Feel is soft with medium to low carbonation. Taste is fruity. Grapefruit, apples and a good bitterness for 55 IBU. Alcohol is not present at 6.8 ABV. Overall a very good balanced IPA which is very refreshing and easy to drink. Well done.

KnutAlbert (6071) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle from Getränke Oase. Hazy yellow. Nice hoppy IPA, a good showcase where the Hallentauer hops are allowed to shine. It’s a matter of enough and at the right time. Flowery, crisp, yet there is still this bready German village brewery feel, these hops have made their signature on so many beers that there is an imprint of the beers where they have been involved. I look forward to many Hopfenstopfer IPAs!

kappldav123 (4883) - GERMANY - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts strong-hoppy, grasy, quite dry. Sourish-fruity notes of grapefruit. Finish quite dry, a bit unbalanced but still okay.

(Flasche) Es hat eine orangegelbe Farbe, ist leicht hefetrüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, fruchtig und honigartig, mit einer Pfirsichnote und ein kleines bisschen Zartbitterschokolade im Hintergrund. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, samtig mit einer etwas stärkeren Bittere und mandarinig im Abgang.

I love the new German IPA-generation and was so looking forward to this one (ordered it online back in March). It has got a light cloudy deep golden / light orange-amber colour with low creamy head and medium body. Nose of aromatic, spicy hops. Taste of these gorgeous aromatic hops as well, grapefruit, white pepper, mint, grass and light sour apples. So easy and nice to drink with a deep and complex body. Enjoyed it a lot.
