westler (76) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Nice, deep, clear golden color (I left the thick yeast depot in the bottle). Fine, but quickly disappearing head. Full aroma in the nose, lots of fruit and a hint of honey. Rich, fruity taste, changing to a remarkable bitterness and a long finish. Good stuff.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
330ml bottle from Bier-deluxe

BBE 05/2014 - Pours clear yellow with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of earthy notes, bready malts, crisp grassy hops and hints of exotic fruits. Taste is grainy, earthy and bready with some grassy hoppiness and exotic fruity notes. Finish is bready, hoppy and grassy with some citrusy notes. Quite untypical but tasty, feels like a kellerbier with loads of crisp hoppiness.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
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.

2013-10-03, bottle from Rudat, Dortmund; bb 14.03.14, 8-4-7-4-16=39
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.
Excellent.

33 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear pale golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma of hops, citric fruits, pale malts and goose berry bush. Flavor of citric fruits, goose berries, hay, pine, resinous hops and some distant wood. Crisp and refreshing bitter fruity palate.

ruigo (1270) - PORTUGAL - NOV 6, 2013
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).
