UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 0,33l - Limited Pre-Edition bottle No. 127. From Bierzwerg. Not to be confused with a real IPA but a pleasant, full and aroma-rich IPA-informed German Zwickl or, as the label says "Quad hop Craft Beer". Beautifully copper golden and cloudy, modest in ABV, brewed for drinkability, very up-front on the aroma hops (grapefruit, honey/peach, some pine) - not as smooth and sturdy as some of its US-examples, as it refuses to all come together in one taste - still somewhat unbalanced regarding the thinnish malt base, but enjoyable in its own right.

ausgewogenes, süffiges IPA, cremiges charmanntes Mundgefühl. Eher flach aber lecker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely golden color, beautiful lasting head. Smells like cut grass. Has very floral first taste, aftertaste like marijuana.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2015
Smooth bitter beginning. Fresh sweetish beginning. Grainy-smooth, fresh. Malty body with nice resin and pine. Nice moderate bitter aftertaste, floral intense sticky. Interesting, but for me a little bit too sweet.

serjaymz (146) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUN 15, 2015
15-06-2015 Stuttgart @ Schlesinger. Bira daha bardağa doldururken şerbetçiotu kokularını yayıyor. Görüntü bulanık sarı, pastörize edilmemiş, filtrelenmemiş bu ilanın beyaz ancak hızlı sönen bir köpüğü var. Koku narenciye, greyfurt, aromatik şerbetçiotları çok baskın, cascade.. Tadım yoğun, şerbetçiotu acılığı vurucu, damakta kalıcı. Double veya imperial ipa kıvamında sert.. Damakta çok kompleks olmaması dışında başarılı..

gildnerk (176) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
Flasche. Gießt ziemlich hellgelb für ein IPA ein mit einer dünnen weißen Schaumkrone. Ziemlich trüb mit einigen Heferesten. Aromas von Zitrusfrucht und Tanne. Geschmack ist erstmal säuerlich-hopfig und lässt allmählich nach, etwas wenig Hopfen im Abgang für meinen Geschmack. Aber trotzdem lecker.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle nr. 301 from Bierzwerg. Golden blonde, hazy. Grapefruit, melon, plastic and oily hops in the aroma. Thin. Earthy floral hopbitter flavor, with grapefruit, lemon and mango. The hops have slightly faded. Still a good beer.

pivnizub (9521) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle (kindly delivered by Quack-Duck!): Cloudy, golden with an orangey sheen, stable white foamy layer, moderate to solid grapefruity and herbal hoppy nose; moderate to strong bitter-sweet flavour, soft to creamy, light to medium bodied; bitter-grapefruity finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The right stuff....

olio (8200) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33 cl bottle. Bottle no. 297.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, exotic fruits, grass and citrus fruits. Flavor of goose berries, hops, grass and some toffee notes. Nice aroma but the taste isn’t as good. Decent anyway.

laiti (7743) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33 cl bottle @ olio. Bottle #297, BBE 31.03.2013
Aroma is rather nice with fruity hops, pineapple, resin and hints of nettles. Flavour has goosebery bush, some caramel, pineapple and hints of resin. Slightly unpleasantly lingering hops in the aftertaste. Good.

I thought I bought the final version but it seems that I got this. I’m okay with that though.
