On a stop over in Baltimore we were hosted by an overwhelmingly hospitable man – Brian Strumke aka Stillwater. Getting hammered drinking his potions - made out of rice and corn - it was with a sense of inspiration that we drove of early in the morning to catch out flight back to Sweden. Nathalius is an imperial IPA brewed with rice and corn. However, fair and alluring as though she might seem this miss will whip you into submission.

DuffMan (8051) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy yellow body topped by a thick sticky frothy white head. Aroma is quite lovely, perfumey pine and sweet mango. The flavour is oddly chalky and powdery, extremely bitter, bordering on harsh. Peeking through this initial assault are some golden syrup sweetness and rustic vegetal notes. An odd concoction that can’t quite hold up to a well integrated final product. Having just had Stillwater Premium this weekend (the low ABV farmhouse style beer brewed with rice and corn-- the inspiration for this beer alluded to in the description), I approached this brew with a special interest. The Stillwater beer is far superior, even elegant, by comparison.

marcus (7672) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours cloudy golden with a thick off-white head and a sourdough aroma. There is a bitter sort of raunchy grain flavor that, unfortunately, sticks to the palate.

umich03jm (2851) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a huge pillowy head that fades very slowly and leaves soapy lacing. Aroma is incredibly piney with some vegetable notes. Taste is like drinking very bitter pine perfume. Very powerful stuff, kinda hard to drink. Foamy mouthfeel. Really liked the aroma but not much else.

bulldogops (1145) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Rating #772 - Nov 17, 2013 - 3 oz sample courtesy of @craftbeerimport. Golden pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is mild honey, mild lemon, orange, toasted rice. Palate is a bit messy, rice and corn toasted don’t provide enough body or depth to stand up to these hops, super bitter and tart and overloaded. An interesting attempt at a coeliac IPA, in any regard.

sneakychi (64) - - DEC 6, 2013
Huge aroma sweet fruits, pine, tropical fruits. Really nice! Golden, hazy with a two finger head. Taste is bitter, really bitter. Some herb, gets me thinking of Fernet Branca which isn’t something I enjoy. Especially not in a IIPA... Quite thin body.

Idiosynkrasie (5019) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy, orangey golden colour with huge, frothy, fully lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit, a sweaty resinous touch. Taste is bitter, chalky, mineral, medicinal, Aspirin, rice parings. Awful taste, the largest discrepancy between aroma and taste I can remember.

Bottle. Good looking, great aroma and nice taste. Ridiculous bitter though, really unbalanced beer. A pity because of the good promise.

Rasmus40 (14262) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from Havnens, Vejle. Cloudy golden with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate hoppy - grass and grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 181113

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Hazy gold. Huge sweet pineapple, grapefruit, and cereal nose. Taste gives thick pine needles, pineapple, cereal, corn, slightly odd thyme notes, and seriously bitter grapefruit. Fairly light bodied. Huge rough bitterness, what a massive citric kick this gives. Uncompromising stuff, but pretty enjoyable if you’ve got a taste for bitterness.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle from Euston Tap. Well well. This is borderline unpleasant due to its astringent back end. Very pleasing funky fruity nose then whallop in the mouth with massive dryness and bitterness. Lemon then grapefruit then the mouthfeel of neat gin. Won’t revisit but def interesting.
