Bottle, many thanks Cuso, stable bubbley head, clear deep orange colour, aroma of citrus and peach with some fruit drops in the back, flavour of grapefruit and herbs with a malty backbone, strong mellow bitterness that lasts to a long pleasant bitter aftertaste. Very good balanced IPA.

Palme (3385) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2013
0.33l bottle from trade with Misow. This is a cloudy deep almost copper orange one with a medium sized off-white head and tons of beige particles and sediments. Not my definition of an IPA on the nose as it’s quite earth and toned down. An English style perhaps? Unfortunately there is lots of papery tones in the aroma. That combined with a earthy almost soily base it’s quite a far way from being fruity or hoppy. Malt sweetness also found here. In the taste however there is a strong and pleasant bitterness. Was expecting a dull sweet malt bomb, but this is actually somewhat pleasant. Almost a little bit soapy bitter with a good amount of near mind wrenching grapefruit zest, grapefruit and some corn. It has a mild only mouthfeel and a below average, almost soft carbonation level. Lingering bitter flavors that’s not letting go in the mouth. Only wish it had a bit more fruity character. That combined with the strong bitter base could have been a nice combo. 30.08.2013

Jamedra (480) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je znát po kvásku s nádechem ovoce a chmelu. Pěna je středně vysoká, jemná, bílé barvy a nedržící. Barva je oranžová a kalná. Chuť má nádech ořechovice s jemným pomerančovým okrajem, finiš je středně hořký a držící. Celkově se jedná o chutné pivo které i přes svojí robustní chuť je dobře pitelné.

Douberd (2304) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
330 ml bottle at home, thanks to MisoW! Into a tulip glass. ABV 5.8% Deep copper orange to light red ruby colour on the body, quite clear. Thin off white head on top, with thick lacing left behind. Aroma is quite malty, caramel. Faint citrus hops. Taste is very malty too, but turns quite fast to a very bitter one, with some citrus and even more floral notes. The malts are sneacking back in on the aftertaste. Long duration on the bitterness, not bad. Medium thin body, good amount of carbonation and a pleasant dryness on the palate. Overall okay IPA, maybe I left it too long waiting, but it’s still very drinkable.
