Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
Frisch hopfiger Antrunk, hell getreidig, Der Alkohol ist erkennbar aber nicht störend, Im Vordergrund steht zu jedem Zeitpunkt der Hopfen, der neben der Grasigkeit nussige Noten abgibt. Frischer und intensiver hopfiger Nachhall mit vergleichsweise geringer Bitterkeit. 12/12/13/13/12/13

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!

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.

Idiosynkrasie (3269) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2013
330ml botle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Intense fruity hoppy aroma with a herbal touch, grapefruit, tangerine and orange zest notes. Taste is citrusy hoppy, tangerine, orange, orange zest, a grassy touch, minimally to moderately sweet pale malty background. Superbly balanced, straight, clear, absolutely successful. A further improvement compared to - and surely resulting from the experiences with - the previously released Hopfenstopfer ales.

hobsch (373) - Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2013
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.

Bottle at home from mctapps, cheers Sabine!
fresh gooseberry like nz hop aromas...but theyre German! US like resin, a herbal nettley noble hop note. Juicy hops, well balanced by light malt with gentle bitterness. Excellent stuff.

McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 5, 2014
Deep golden light opalescent colour with a large fading white head. Noses of citrus, maracuja, gooseberry, lemon and hints of grapefruit and exotic fruit salad. A soft carbonation with a medium-full body and a harmonic slick texture. Tastes sweet with a faint sour note. Well balanced offering a fruity fading into light dry soft finish. Harmonic beer!

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2013
bottle from the brewery. Hazy pale golden colour, white head which is very persistant. Lovely hop aroma. Full-bodied, the intensive malty base balances the lovely hop character very well. Delicious!

McTapps (3022) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2013
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.
