4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-11-05, bottle from Rudat, Dortmund; bb 14.03.14, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Cloudy even after sitting in the cupboard for a month, with large and steady head. The aroma starts picking some rassy side, along with the light fruity and tropical presence, and a very light yeast pungency. I always love the lean mouthfeel of the Hopfenstopfer beers; delicate maltiness, with some cereals flavor; strong but balanced bitterness, with moderate citrusy and fruity character.
Very nice beer, easy to drink in every occasion, for an unbeatable price.

Hazy to cloudy deep blond color with a light green hue; large and persistent head. Very nice aroma, fresh and fruity; hint of spicy yeast. The body is lean, the mouthfeel is dry, strong carbonation, with a strong spicy yeast character, citrusy hop resins, and final astringency.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared a 33cl from Maruhn (Darmstadt). Pours a lightly hazy pale golden colour with some white head. Aroma is light malt and heavy hoppy. Medium carbonation and light body. Flavour is like a kick of bitterness followed by a dry end and a pleasant sensation... Overall, a very good IPA (that tastes more like a APA).

Aprikosenfarbenes PA, leicht milchig-trüb mit Bergen von Schaum. Aromatischer Citrus-Hopfen mit einem Hauch von Kiefer. Semi-trockener Antrunk, relativ geringe Karbonisierung. Neben dem herben Obstsalat kommt diese leichte Holzigkeit angenehm wieder. Hinterlässt Eindruck!

Had this at Cafe Brecht, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Monday 30th September 2013 So chuffed with this place it is a bloody great little cafe, with a small but well chosen beer list, in fact really well chosen and changing weekly as well I’m told. Soft, slightly prickly hoppiness in mouth, bloody lovely, only 55 IBU which is fairly modest these days but its just right. Soft squishy citrus nicely bittersweet finish is quite long slowly drying towards end. Little pithiness, its a really, really nice beer. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov17 4.1
