2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
A truly primitive rendition of an Imperial IPA. Murky, bitter hops, some off caramel notes with a touch of cloying sweetness, light fizzy mouthfeel. Unbalanced, unrewarding, and unnecessary.
It’s beers like this that set the craft beer movement back 25 years.
And I forgot I told myself not to by their beers anymore, because the last one had a capped that leaked a puddle of fluid onto the floor of the bus. This one also started leaking spray all over the rest of the stash I bought, though not as terribly. Still, it was a mess, as is this beer.

17/06/2015 @ Schlesinger Stuttgart. Bulanık kızıl-bronz renkte.. Köpük yumurta kabuğu/kırık beyaz, çok kalıcı değil.. Koku narenciye Bombası, greyfurt önde.. Damakta ise ipa acılığının vuruşu çok net.. Tatlı narenciye tatlarını hemen şerbetçiotu acılığı kapatıyor, damakta oldukça kalıcı ancak çok kompleks değil..

Leuchtend rot-orange trüb mit wenig Schaum. Das Bier ist süßlich mit malzigem, weichem Körper, welcher wunderbare Fruchtaromen aufweist. Hobbytester hat es mit Früchtetee gut auf den Punkt gebracht. Die Bitternote ist nicht übertrieben und bindet sich perfekt ein.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber coloured, a bit of chill haze, full beige head.
Aroma of oranges, tropical fruits, clove, and caramel.
Flavour is well balanced between tropical fruits, fresh hops and caramely malt qualities. Full body, hoppy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 14/7/2015. Clear, orangeish amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Intense, fruity aroma of tangerine, mango, orange and passion fruit, accompanied by piney, resiny notes. Sweetish taste of honey and biscuits, followed by a rich, fruity sensation of passion fruit, mango and tangerine and a resiny note. Short, slightly bitter and grapefruity finish. Medium to full body, smooth and almost oily texture, average carbonation. Nice and tasty, a bit on the sweet site. Very solid!
