HonkeyBra (4018) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
22 oz bottle. Amber orange color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma of flowers, rich pine and strong citrus. Unsurprising, for a DIPA, but still nice. Flavor is strongly bitter. Strong pine and grapefruit notes. Nice, sure. Very bitter. Some pine, some lemon. Full bodied, heavier carbonation. This is nice, especially in the finish where it is quite bitter. Nice, finishes long a bitter.

Idiosynkrasie (6057) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2016
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and piney, hoppy aroma with a touch of glue, zesty hints of tangerine and grapefruita sugary touch. Taste is bitter and slightly citrusy hoppy, chalky and mineral notes, some lemon, pale malty background with an almond touch, some cardboard; alcoholic finish. Not much hop flavour, quite papery overall. Not worth the transatlantic crossing.

Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light - some caramel and faint bread, light tropical fruitiness, some pineygrapefruit hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Caramel sweetish and bready DIPA - could use more fruitiness and bitterness to balance 8% alcohol. Nothing really special.

Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, semi dry and a mild fine crispness. Light malts, touch of lactose - cream sweetness. Hops are a nice combo of cooling pine, almost minty, hop spice, ripe tropical fruits. Light semi dry finish. Nicely joined up.

Not quite right, this is full of hops, and built on quite a big malt build, but the finish is very harsh , and not just hop bitterness,
