Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Medium size, fluffy white head, stays. Fruity, sweet, acidic hops in aroma. Sweet, fruity, citric hops and some caramel in taste. Citric hops and sugar in aftertaste. Hoppy bitterness. Drinkable brew.

FatPhil (12736) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
On pouring, a really lovely tropical fruit aroma, pineapple at the sharp end, and mango at the heavy end. That’s pretty much worth a 7. But in the glass, it’s just flat and dull, a swirl to bring out the esters brings out some acetone instead. Some almond. Medium palate, pleasant carbonation. Simple tropical fruit hoppy taste, barest minimum malts to support that. Got some mint later in the aroma, which I hate normally, but it’s not ruining this. Finish is pleasantly bitter, just gentle resiny tingle. Kinda thin and simple, and WHAT THE FUCK?!?!? 10% no freaking way, Even the alcohol test only brings out bitter resiny hops. Drinkability massive, super massive, for a 10% beer. Dang, Proef really know what they’re doing.

Aroma of pine, citrus, grass. Pale to golden colour (lovely). Hazy. Frothy head, approx 2 cm. Bone dry and bitter. Long, long after taste, multi layered. Final taste far back and on both sides of tongue. Exceptional beer.

angelkostvo (1058) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 25, 2016
Light orange colour, white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, resin. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter. LIght body, slick texture, soft to average carbonation. The alcohol is soooo well hidden, its like magic.

KW92 (1047) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 23, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, średnio trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Cytrusy, słody, karmel. W tle owoce (ananas) oraz zioła.
SMAK: Owoce (dojrzały ananas). Kontra cytrusowa. Długi owocowo-cytrusowy posmak. Goryczka wysoka, nieco zalegająca. Jak na 10%, to alkohol jest bardzo dobrze wkomponowany w całość, nawet specjalnie nie grzeje w przełyk.
OGÓLNIE: Jestem pod wrażeniem jak dobrze można ukryć przeszło 10 %. Gdybym miał oszacować to powiedział bym, że jest to 7 - 8 % maksymalnie! Niezwykle zdradliwe piwo.

Demens (111) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2016
0,33l bottle. Hazy orange colour with slowly disappearing white head. Aroma: flower, citrus, yeast, candy sugar, a pleasure to smell. Wonderful. Taste: Sweet malty start (with a lot of citrus flavours) then the bitterness domintes. Very hoppy taste but perfectly balanced, a pleasure to drink. Medium carbonation, full body. Long bitter finish. I can’t feel the high alcohol %. Amazing beer.

venom666 (747) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2016
Hazy orange color with medium beige head. Aroma is alcoholic, with orange, mango, pine, resin and caramel malts. Good mouthfeel. Taste follows the aroma, piney, citrusy, with mango, pineapple, resin and a very balancing malty backbone. Bitter aftertaste, with a slight alcohol presence.

CacheManyHose (531) - HONG KONG - FEB 6, 2016
From Craftissimo. Drank w Matt after Toritama. Hazy light orange-gold. White fine creamy head with big bubbles. Lots of wet frothy lacing. Smell is moderately bitter, orange, dusty lightly pepper hop. Taste is very bitter, lots of resin, orange, pith, lemon, grass. Body is bitter, stony, moderate citrusy spice to finish. Relatively straightforward but done very, very well - a great orange resinous big bitter DIPA.

HKdIPA (611) - HONG KONG - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle from Craftissimo at home before CNY. Slightly hazy bright orange pour. Aroma is big boozy heavy dank fruit and resin hops - pineapple, mango, pine resin. Taste is huge bitter boozy bite with lasting boozy warmth. Sort of SD-style DIPA in it's huge resinous bitter booziness. Really good if you like that style.
