erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 6, 2014
Very misty golden greenish body and small bubbly yet stable head. Very fresh hops, mint almost. Fresh mandarin zest, mango and a hay like underpinning that give this beer the actual edge over so many other hoppy brews nowadays. Full bodied mouth feel, original zesty bitterness and even lemony. Almost lime pale ale like, however with a spot on malt base and characterful yeast presence. Lager light cleanness even in the start of the taste, but a lasting bitterness profile. Very good, very fresh, moderate abv and great summer beer. Best from the brewery so far, I think! (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles, thanks for the import ;)

aleigator (89) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Slightly saturated yellow, cloudy, citraic, with an enormous head. First impression is this being a pils, course of the german hops, but cascade turns the image around, adds floral, hoppy aromas, making this actual an IPA. Wheat and hints of pine are still stronger than the usual fruity aromas, I would expect of a beer like this. Actually, at first glance I got the feeling of drinking a "Pils", but after a short while the aroma hop bitterness kicks in. Wheat freshness turns into a wet hoppiness, with a decent malt backbone. Flavors of mango and orange are recognizable, going along with rich wheat impressions, getting overwhelmed by an upcoming hop-bitterness in the end. Carbonation is pretty present, adding a metallic flavor to the beer, without being distractive, but adding a metallic flavor to the beer. The problem I got with this beer is, that both flavors, wheat and bitterness, do not go well within this beer, it creates a contrast which isn’t balanced by blending together.

Erzengel (1904) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2014
Pale cloudy in the glass, thick white head. The nose is extremely grassy and floral. The beer starts grassy, floral and only slightly malty. Slightly sourish - probably due to the extreme hop-blast. The bitterness is moderate, in the end nicely dryer, but still floral and fresh!
--> Great hoppy Pale Ale! I like it! --> 13/12/13/13

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl, købt i Craft Beer Store, Hamburg. Uklar lys gylden med et lavt hvidt skum. Sødladen humle-aroma. Citrus. Græs. Savner lidt krop. Citronvand. Syrlig. Men for sød. God bitterhed. Ikke ligefrem incredible.

rosenbergh (6072) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 7/7/14. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. The aroma is pineapple, tropical fruits, some sweetness, hops and a tiny bit of bitterness. Absolutely delicious. The flavour is very tasty with tropical fruits, pine and mild resin... and some bitterness, sweetness and some malty sweetness. I’m in paradise... wait... no... I’m not... it’s watery...

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 9, 2014
IPA davvero incredibile, caratterizzata da un’aroma intensissimo di luppoli fruttati, soprattutto pompelmo. Idem per quanto riguarda il gusto: frutta tropicale, pompelmo, con un retrogusto floreale e un amaro degno di questo nome, sia all’impatto che nella persistenza sul palato.

Beuatifull amber / orange colour, nice head. Smelling grapefruit / orange. Nice carbonation, tasting lots of grapefruit, nice finish with a longlasting bitter taste. The best german IPA so far
