Bottle 50 Cl @ Fiasco Bar, Oslo. Darker hazy amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a large off white head. Strong floral hoppy hopflowery hinted aroma. FUll palate. Finish is strong bitter herby hoppy infused. Ok but not top of the double IPAs.

KW92 (1069) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 28, 2016

Butelka z datą: 15.03.2018, #1605.
WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zmętnione. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Dominują cytrusy, a konkretnie grejpfrut. W tle lekka nuta ziołowa oraz akcenty trawiasto-łodygowe. W tle lekka kanaliza.
SMAK: Wytrawne, chmielowe. Posmak cytrusowo-łodygowy. Goryczka wysoka, nieco zalegająca. Alkohol dobrze wkomponowany
OGÓLNIE: Gdyby nie wada w aromacie ocena byłaby z pewnością minimalnie wyższa.

Draught at La Cerveteca, Barcelona. Slightly opaque gold with decent lacing. Sweet resin hops of a DIPA. A hint of citrus then a huge punch of pine. Quite boozy fr the abv

NBird (621) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2016
Looks..murky orange tan, sml head. Smells..not huge for an iipa... piney, stonefruit, some apricot maybe and thick rich caramel. Tastes..huge and heavy stonefruits, boozy, chewy caramel, resinous bitterness.. Little carbonation making it seem heavier the the 8.5% abv.

A 500ml bottle from batch #1328 with a best before date of 15th December 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear dark amber orange colour with a one finger off white head that leaves nice lacing. Aromas of heavy citrus orange and grapefruit with a hint of floralness and caramel. Tastes sweet-ish pineapple and grapefruit hop bitterness with some light caramel malt. The grapefruit bitterness sticks around for a while. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent Double IPA with good lasting bitterness. It’s still well within its best before date, but I have to wonder if a fresher bottle would be even more impressive.

So I love IPA, especially the stronger ones with loads of dimensions. This one was reassurring all the way. Really well balanced aromas and flavors and all in all delicious all the way.

Hopverdju (404) - BELGIUM - APR 27, 2016
Wazig goudblond bier met wit schuim. Geur: moutzoetig, zweterig, hond, hooi, kaas. Smaak: ik lust wel goed bitter, 100 IBU leuk, maar hier wringt de bitterheid toch wat, ook wat leder en droog. Redelijke koolzuurprikkel. Vooral spijtig wat de geur betreft.

Rask0lnikov (505) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2016
Golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Sweetness, apricots, pineapple in the aroma. Pineapple at first. Crisp mouthfeel, lots of orangecore in the middle. Citrussy finish. Pineapple and some bitterness in the aftertaste. Bit sweet, rather medium bodied, quite well balanced DIPA. But something bothers me here. Probably too much pineapple. Otherwise descent brew.

butelka, warka do 16-12-17 (czyli jakies 4 miechy po rozlewie) Zaje piana, biala, mega sztywna, bardzo wysoka, brudzacca szklo/ samo piwo dosc jasne, zlote, przejrzyste, lekko opalizujace. Aromaty mega intensywne, nie trzeba nosa do butelki zblizac - tropiki, landrynki - na pierwszym planie. dalej slodowe (troche slodyczy a la barley wine, troche karmelu, troche jakichs zbozowych) i jeszcze cytrusy, przy czym nietypowe, pomarancza, mandarynka. W ustach geste, lepkawe, ciezkie, srednio wysycone, tresciwe, znow przywodzace na mysl barley wine. Ewidentnie slodkie. ale tez ewidentnie tropikalno cytrusowe. z mocna i fajna, grejfrutowa goryczka, ktora bardzo dlugo zostaje (zalega jakos nie pasuje, bo nie jest to itytujace). super ukryty alkohol. baaardzo dobre to piwo
