COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Moe". A wise man once told me that success makes you tired, fat and slow. Therefore, winning ”best of show” at the third largest beer festival in the world last month meant I had to brew a follow up.

Get fresh...and this time I mean it.

ALLOVATE (2522) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Pour is of a muddy, dull orange with a soppy, limp off-white foam atop that manages little lace. Very faint, very distant nose that bleeds hot alcohol and nail polish remover but only a smidgeon of caramelised stonefruit, bready yeast, cookie dough and pine-needles. Plastic, fusel-fuelled palate with a lot too much nail-polish remover and perfume to be enjoyable. Medium carbonation with a light to medium-light body. A flavour reminiscent of navel oranges fills out any cracks. Touch of pine-wood, tooth-pick in the finish. Low to medial bitterness. Nothing really amorous about this one. Not too good at all! (33cL, BB 21/10/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

BRW (1300) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2014
On tap at Biercab. Hazy yellow colour with white head. Grain, malt, caramel aroma. Sweet, grain, caramel, soapy taste. Medium to full body.

CacheManyHose (310) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2014
Cloudy straw-gold with fine foamy white head. Aroma is of huge citrus and florals, grassy hop in the background. Taste is of grassy resinous bitter hop, light spice, slightly odd sour (in a vegetal, not citrus, way) finish. Body is thin-medium with decent fine carbonation. Glad I tried this even if I don't think I'd get it again.

HKdIPA (364) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Very hazy Dull golden pour - not the best looking. Foamy head. Smells very citrusy and grassy. Taste is very grassy hops with sweetness and vegetal finish. A bit disappointing - would not get again but happy to try.

merzbeer (8) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2014 does not count
This was a very interesting beer. Most fascinatingly, the finish was all caramelized brown-sugar, creme-brûlée. The aroma is super floral. Really enjoyed this one.

tomekk1978 (683) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Barwa: złocista, lekko zmętniona. Piana biała, obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, ale stosunkowo szybko opadająca. Aromat: wyraźnie chmielowy. Cytrusy (z przewagą grejpfruta), niestety po chwili także naleciałości chmielu granulkowego, jakby łodygowe, mniej przyjemne. Do tego lekka słodowość (herbatnikowa) oraz niewielka nuta alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy, pełny, umiarkowanie słodki z natychmiastową chmielową kontrą. Goryczka stosunkowo wysoka, grejpfrutowa, utrzymująca się. Alkohol niezbyt wyczuwalny. Wreszcie przyzwoite piwo z Omnipollo. Barwa i piana ładne, aromat i smak przyzwoite. Piłem co prawda już lepsze IPA, ale od czegoś trzeba zacząć. Jeśli browar będzie warzył piwa na minimum takim poziomie powinno być dobrze, Ich cena jest jednak w Polsce dość wysoka, zatem mając do wyboru podobne propozycje z Mikkelera czy BrewDoga raczej wybiorę to drugie, bowiem są zwykle bardziej dopracowane.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2014
(Draught at Craft Islington, London, 12 Apr 2014) Pale amber colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, orange peel, a touch of tea and fresh hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, resin, grapefruit, a slightly sharp malt character and a generous citric/resiny bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made DIPA with a fresh hop character. Very nice.

Benderone (49) - FRANCE - APR 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl servie dans un verre teku. Robe dorée tendant sur l’orange, limpide, beau col de mousse blanche, stable. Forte carbonation. Nez plus ou moins résineux sur les fruits exotiques, notes d’agrumes (orange). Corps moyen. Le palais plutôt malté évoque aussi légérement les agrumes, le tout est fortement houblonné, grosse amertume astringeante et finale très sèche. Rien de particulièrement exceptionnel mais j’aime beaucoup ce genre de bières!

Aroma of grapefruit, mandarin & orange. Clear golden with small white head. Bitter dry taste of grapefruit. Medium body, sticky texture & average carbonation.

Tap at Fermentoren, february 14th 2014. Hazy amber body with a creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, pear and straw. Taste is quite hoppy, pine and several citrus fruits, caramel, herbs. Nice strong bitterness, with a lasting aftertaste of tropical fruits and dark sugar.
