bartlebier (2683) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2015
33cl bottles, several batches sampled from its introduction to batch bb12/2015. This early-adopted German IPA was once a gateway beer to exotic floral goodness coming from an unassuming Kellerbier-derived style, succesfully pairing earthy Hallertaus with sprinkles of citrus-forward US hops. (Not sure when more mellow Nelson Sauvin was introduced to the recipe...). The aroma is still lovely, whereas comparing it now with ubiquitous European IPAs from Portugal to Slovakia, the thin and fizzy pilsner/crystal body is what first marks its age. The focused monopurpose Citra Ale does a better job of imparting pillowy, sweet ale qualities than this fair enough vehicle for mixed dryhopping on a rather simplistic Germanic malt base.

Maker: Häffner Bräu, Bad Rappenau, Germany *** Beer: Hopfenstopfer Incredible Pale Ale (bottled, unfiltered, 330ml) *** Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) *** ALC.VOL.: 6.1% *** "The Final Edition of our IPA. Hops are: Hallertauer Taurus, Hallertauer Saphir, Nelson Sauvin and Cascade. Beware, you may become a addicted to this stuff!" [brewery note] *** Colour: Bright yellow golden, slightly hazy; medium, creamy white head. *** Nose: Modest aroma of tangerines, roses, grass. *** Texture: Medium to full body, a bit oily. Mild carbonation. *** Taste: Grain, some nondescript citrus notes, herbs, pinewood, yeast at the start. Not very fruity. Floral notes in the middle, along with grain and mild herbs, milder pinewood. A wee bit resinous. Finish is more lemony than before, with mild hoppy bitterness, some perfume, Lasting aftertaste of floral hops, a hint of lemon, yeast. *** Impressions: Wee heavy IPA with muted fruit notes, grain and perfume are dominant. Non-mainstream. Noit bad, and certainly different.

olsvammel (4249) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle from a bottle shop in Bamberg (think it was Bierothek). Fruity and hoppy smell with citrus and nettles. Hoppy taste, a bit wineous and yeasty. Medium bitterness. Pour with care it had allot of bottom sediment and I think thats the yeasty wineous aroma I got (I was being careful though).

greks (138) - GERMANY - JUL 18, 2015
0,33 Flasche von bier-deluxe. Orange-gelbe Farbe, trüb, kaum Kohlensäure, kaum Schaum. Riecht sehr fruchtig-süß, erinnert mich an Kirmes! Minimal wässrig, fruchtig, süß, floral, bitter, hopfig. Danach kommt der bittere Nachgeschmack der sich in Grenzen hält. Sehr gelungen!
