lusikka (6000) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
330 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated @ 6.3.2010.
Hazy amber colour with a strong off-white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Fruits, citrus and spices on the nose - very DIPA-like. Flavour is floral hops, citrus, caramel, grapefruit and malts. Full bodied with an oily texture and a nice balance. Very good.

Glouglouburp (5944) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
In short: A pleasant very hoppy but also overly sugary sweet American style IIPA
How: Bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam
The look: Cloudy orange-blonde body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: The nose is quite hoppy the American way with no specific focus. It is leafy, fruity, piney, and more. Taste is crisp but unfortunately a bit too sweet. Quite sugary (white sugar) and with candied fruits is what I noted first. The malt bill is not rich, caramelized or anything. Just sugary. All that is followed by a sharp fruity and piney bitterness that does not quite balance the whole thing. Sweet sugary after-taste. Too sugary for its own good. I’m not sure what’s there to like about those sugary IIPA. Aren’t hoppy beers better when they are very drinkable, refreshing even? Or maybe I just don’t like sugar anymore. I’m no kid anymore. My birth certificate expired last month.

Bottle (33 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Hazy deep golden, medium white head. Fruity, aromatic aroma, clearly brewed with belgian yeast, with notes of tropical fruits. Medium bodied and smooth. Very refreshing, dry with a kind of gentle bitterness, surprisingly for a Mikkeller brew.
