Refreshing fragrances of mango and grape- fruit, with hints of pine. Caressing the palate. The dominant bitterness is backed by the malt body’s strong notes of caramel and bread crust. Hop aromas balance out the bitterness on the pallet. Besides the exotic fruity notes, resinous tones gain more prominence. The mouthfeel is juicy and cooling. Long bitter-grapefruity nale. Hoppy-aromatic, fruity-bitter, intense.

SinH4 (3082) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Tap sampler tray at the Brewpub Hackescher Markt. Glowing copper-amber color with eggshell head. Aroma is mango, resinous, caramel, toasted malts, some earthy-herbal hop characteristics. Taste is more mango, resinous, nice residual sweetness, bittersweet finish. Oily mouthfeel. Very nice, this one at last stands out in the sampler tray where no beer was bad, but also none was particularly memorable.

Belle robe russe et rondelles de mousse persistante. Goût puissant qui reste longtemps en bouche après la déglutition.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottled. Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with a rather big foamy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet malts, some caramel, mild spicy and herbal notes along with some mango, citrus as well as some woodne and resiny notes. Flavour is nicely fruity and floral with some spruce, mild spicy/herbal notes as well as some sweetish malts to go with it. Wellbalanced and quite tasty. Refreshing.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
- bernsteinfarben mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - intensive Aromen nach div. tropischen Früchten, etwas Karamell, Pinie, Brot und ein leichter Minz-Touch - perfekte Carbonisierung - der Antrunk hat eine angenehm weiche Textur - geschmacklich sind die beschriebenen Aromen klar und deutlich nebeneinander erkennbar - der Mittelteil betont die perfekt in den Malzkörper eingebettete Hopfenbitternis - der Abgang wird noch durch eine leicht säuerliche Note verschönt Fazit: IPA At Its Best

bartlebier (3408) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
355ml aka 12oz bottle bb02/2017, BD Lemke sampler. - Pleasantly surprised by this indeed bittersüß, sweet mango bubble tea of an IPA. Chunky smooth soggy biscuit caramalts drenched with mango juice and sweet pear (nashi), stone fruit - countered by drying stonefruit peel resins. Nice thick body, clean shorter finish. Sweet and fruity but good, on the lieblich side of #Hanscraft Backbone Splitter.

Keg at Lemke, Berlin. Consumed in the sunshine with a big sausage. As ’Lemke India Pale Ale’, 6.5%. Dark amber, translucent, lightly sparkling, foamy white head. Aroma is apricot, orange, vibrant and fruity. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is pine, resin, caramel sweetness with some liqueur fruits, touch boozy. A very good fruity IPA.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, bigger and pretty stable and lacy off-white head; sweetish nose of bread and breadcrusts and caramel with a background of spicy resiny hops; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and quite soft; lingering bitter-sweet finish with some warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Good...

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2016
(Draught at Brauhaus Lemke Hackescher Markt, Berlin, 25 Aug 2016) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, orange peel, treacle-toffee and grapefruit. Malty, fruity taste with grapefruit, pine needles, mango, caramel and a generous resiny, citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain caramel sweetness. Tasty and well made IPA. Nice one.
