# 3473 ersma: „quad hop craft beer“ steht im untertitel. da weiß man ja etwa, was auf einen zukommt. und amarillo, citra, cascade und chinook sind auch ne klare ansage. orange-bernsteinfarben, leicht trübe. mittelstabiler schaum. der geruch ist süßlich-fruchtig mit zitrus, mango, etwas tannennadel. dezenter als erwartet. der antrunk ist bitter und ebenfalls fruchtig, zitrus und mango. die mitte wird bitterer und fruchtiger, nun gesellen sich auch beerige aromen hinzu sowie harzige anflüge. der abgang bringt zunehmend malz mit, so dass das ende ausgewochen herkommt mit abnehmender bitterkeit. die flasche - naja. fazit: von den aromen habe ich mir deutlich mehr versprochen. das bier ist zwar einen monat vor mhd, aber die aromen sollten bis dahin ja optimal vorhanden sein. dennoch gut trinkbar, mehr aber nicht. 9, 9, 9, 10, 6, 9 - 9,00

Saeglopur (326) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Amber, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, strawberry, passion fruit, pine, caramel. Taste with about the same aromas, with a biscuit backbone, also some bubblegum. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes a bit flat, bitter-sweet, fruity, malty and with some pine. Nice one. Good aromas and good balance, but overall it lacks the last bit for a great DIPA. A good beer nonetheless.
