WillemsUrenkel (488) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2013
0,33 l bottle. Pours hazy pale orange, mighty fine white head. Surprisingly more soft on the nose, no dominating grapefruit and hop, more earthy nearby eggs. Starts zippy bitter herb. Behind the wall of bitterness, pepper and hints of walnut. Later more citrus with a light sweetness. In my opinion too much of the hops side.

Ibrew2or3 (6861) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a nearly clear deep gold body that supports a tall dirty white head of foam that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The modest aroma offers up some tart lemon and earthy malt sweetened lemon grass as well as faint candied tropical fruit. Decent. The taste has a quick hit of lemon tartness before fuller and rounder notes of mango, malt sweetened lemon grass and grapefruit take over. This has a thick malt sweetened citrusy and fruity hop flavor layers that get mowed over by a firm degree of citrus hop bitterness.

Case (239) - GERMANY - AUG 24, 2013
Pours light yellow with big white head. Aroma is grass and tropical fruits. Taste is very bitter and hoppy and seems to not be striving for balance on purpose. Ends on a vaguely sweet fruity note. Crisp mouthfeel and strongly carbonated. Decent IPA, I quite prefer it to their Comet IPA.

Grima (2091) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours cloudy yellow with high, very fine, creamy white head. Smell has lots of citrussy hops, some grapefruit, tropical fruits and some spruce. Starts very fruity-hoppy, slight sweetish with lots of tropical fruit and some tart grapefruit and citrus. The middle part has still lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits, paired with some pine woods and a slight bready note. Goes into a fruity-tart finish with tropical fruits, some pineapple, hay and spruce. Great german IPA!!!

sebletitje (6648) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2013
Bouteille 33cl courtesy of Tomaz. BB 28-9-2013. Trouble paille-doré, col crémeux épais blanc. Arôme offre des notes de grains/levure fermentés, le tout gardant ce côté concassé entrecoupé de pointes d’herbes coupées. Note rappelant les bourgeons avec un fleuri moyen. Palais est houblonné amer légèrement collant aux lèvres, note douce rappelant presque le miel. Pointe d’ananas, sec léger citronné, note herbacée entre pétale et camomille. Le tout est épais avec pour moi un côté grains dominant qui enlève un peu des caractéristiques de certains houblons. Pas mal de houblons s’entrechoquent ce qui peu aussi amener à moins distinguer certaines propriétés. Reste solide.

Martinus (2800) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Slightly hazy pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, quite some melon, pineapple, fruity. Quite sweet flavour, light bitter, light sour touch, some wheat? Lots of carbo, bitter hoppy finish, malts. Decent brew.
(From 33cL bottle @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting, De Molen. Thanks for sharing, jfb!)
