My interpretation of a traditional India Pale Ale, with a pleasant dose of bitterness and a fresh, fruity taste. Inspiring and exotic. Surprises with citrus notes and floral nuances and finishes with hints of wild honey and caramelized malt.

Join me on an exciting journey through the world of flavors.

DraftDodger (995) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
Copenhagen 2/7 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Not everyday you encounter a IPA from Germany. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam with lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is suprisingly weak for this kind of beer. But nice enough. Exotic fruit, citric notes and a little sweet caramel. Medium carbonation and thick palate. Taste has pronounced sweetness followed by a nice bitterness. A bit on the sweet side - but if you are not afraid of caries it is certainly more than drinkable.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle - Clear deep golden colour, medium white head, fair retention. Gentle hoppy nose with some tropical fruits, some orange peel and floral notes. Taste is sweet malty with too much caramel. Nice tropical fruits, some grapefruit, decent hop bitterness in the end. Medium body and carbonation, too sticky mouthfeel for an IPA, nice but too shy bitter finish. Nice, but not a typical IPA.

Malty, strong carmel aroma and flavor. Slight bitterness and very well balanced. Decent IPA for Germany.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Dezenteres Pale Ale, bei dem mehr die Bitterkeit zur Geltung kommt. Sehr schöner Schaum. Leichte Hefe und Honignote. Dominierender Malzgeschmack, der sich mit der Trinkdauer zusammen mit der Bitterkeit immer mehr durchsetzt.

PabloZab (1061) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Butelka 0.75l (03.03.2018). Piwo klarowne o bursztynowej barwie, białej, obfitej pianie, zbitej jak ubite białko jajek, trwała, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat w pierwszej chwili delikatnie cytrusowy a po przelaniu do szkła leciutko słodkawy z nuta owoców tropikalnych, ananasa, niezbyt intensywny ale przyjemny i bez wad. W smaku owocowo-słodowe z wyraźną, ziołowo-tropikalną goryczką, krótką i dość zwiewną bez zalegania z bardzo przyjemnym, lekko słodkim posmakiem, bardzo minimalnie alkoholowym, który jednak nie przeszkadza a nadaje piwu mu fajny lekko wytrawny i słodkawy jednocześnie finisz. Bardzo przyjemne piwo, lekkie w odczuciu jak na swój woltaż, całkiem pijalne.
