Bottle - hazy orange beer with a nice white head. Strong citrus and hay aroma. Flavour has a lot ob hoppy bitterness. Long lasting. A little bit more maltiness would make the beer even better. Medium carbonation.

ElDesmadre (1923) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Very yeasty aroma, really over the top. Some hoppy notes (e.g. mandarine) as well, but yeast for the most part. The flavour is luckily more hoppy, citrusy, grassy. Yeasty finish with a subtle currant note. Too much yeast in the aroma, carbonation is a bit too high and the bitterness is not enough to balance the sweetness. Otherwise ok.

Bottle at Braukunst Live München 2015. Medium high lasting white head. Cloudy orange body. Dry apple pear peach aroma. Relatively sweet fruity flavor with a dry note and a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long dry finish.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 14/1/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy golden colour with a big foamy white head. Quite mild hoppy and malty aroma with airy and piney notes. The flavour is dry hops, pine, mild bitterness and dry malt. Naja... a bit of a disappointment. Probably the fresher the better.

NierBier (9) - GERMANY - JAN 7, 2015 does not count
0.33 l bottle. Hazy golden color with thick white head that dissipates slowly. Hop aroma is strong. Great taste followed by strong bitterness. Very drinkable for me.

Psytron (1463) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Smell of mango, citrus. Muddy colour, extreme white head. Aroma of alcohol, sugar, overripe fruit. Surprisingly strong alcohol sweetness for this abv. Flat carbon, very oily texture. Sweet.

guzgorog (398) - FRANCE - NOV 10, 2014
Blonde dorée légèrement trouble, mousse abondante qui se tient fort bien et laisse doucement une grosse dentelle sur le verre. Nez de levures, abricot, pêche, banane, céréales. Bouche sur la levure également, légère fin de bouche sur les agrumes. Belle texture crémeuse, amertume moyenne (où sont les 55 IBU ?). Bonne bière mais ressemble vraiment plus à une ale belge (triple) qu’à une IPA, tant à l’aspect qu’au nez et à la bouche ! Déçu, la Citra IPA de la même brasserie est bien au dessus !
