That1Guy (1934) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Clear golden pour with a white head. Definitely hop-forward. Get a lot of orange gatorade powder, almost smells artificial. Get a bit of acetaldehyde creeping through as the taster warms up. Still pretty decent.

Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is a little airy and slightly crisp. Light semi sweet malts, touch of cream. Good hops - nice balance of floral pine and fresh orange. Good tangerine streak runs throughout. Traces of lemon and citric peel. Light finish. Fresh orange and marmalade linger on. Nice one, very tasty and by far the best hop led beer I’ve had from this brewery.

Bottle from Biernavigatie, large sample, served in a shaker. Almost clear golden color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, some cookie, bit grassy, some sweet candy, some mango. Medium bitter in taste, quite some malt. Bit one-dimensional. Slight sharpish in the finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. Average IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (3796) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2014
355ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit, biscuity malt basis, hints of almond, sugar powder, marzipan, also a touch of ’Sauerkraut’. Taste is initially simply bitter hoppy, later citrusy with lemon notes, minimally sweet biscuity malt basis, hints of lemon biscuit; bitter finish with almond touch. Second class IPA.

Bottle. Golden color. Grapefruit, mango and grassy notes in the aroma and flavor. Piney notes. Some earthiness in the finish. Malty sweetish. Delicious!
