COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leuchtende orange-goldene Farbe, feinporiger Schaum. Erfrischender Duft nach blumigen Hopfenaromen und Citrusfrüchten. Rezenter Antrunk, dann drängt sich die kräftige Hopfenbittere vor. Am Gaumen dicht und harmonisch. Eine feine Restsüße spielt mit edelherben Noten aus den wertvollen Hopfensorten. Im Nachhall verklingt die würzig-aromatische Bittere nur langsam. Ist Dir das Leben auch zu süß?

bastarda (102) - Freiburg, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
decent nose: bitter orange marmelade stirred by a whiff of herb and pine, otherwise a dipa refusing kindly (i.e. not at all badly) to take off with the citrusy hops getting grounded by honey-malt clouds with an aspartame lining. A little hoppy move in the finish. If this is nothing but the truth I’m not quite sure I want to have it again.

Gurthnar (2094) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle by a friend. Aroma fruity hoppy, but also caramel malty, rather balanced. Clear golden colour. Taste fruity hoppy, light zesty. Moderate bitterness. Good, but could be overall more intense.

Theydon_Bois (9695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle split at Mother Arch during my 40th bash, thanks to me Wingman - Dave, 11/10/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is caramel malt, light pine, spice, dark fruit, trace of diacetyl, straw. Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, bready notes, astringent bitterness. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So very so, like a mediocre ramped up golden blonde.

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle shared in London for Colin’s bonanza. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose has some lightly oxidised pale bread, citrus jam. Medium sweet flavor with bitter hay, marmalade, some grass, dry white bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry and somewhat astringent on the finish, more bitter grass, oxidised mals, dry bread, rind. Poor.

Bottle share for Colin’s 40th. Thanks to big dave. Aroma is stale grainy, cardboard, orange peel, stale. Flavour is orange, grainy cereal, tangy fruit. Clear light golden coloured pour no head. Palate is crisp, moderate carbonation. Lingering grass and orange. Double IPA? Wtf?

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Dave. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is bready, toasty cereal, grainy and light sweetness. The taste is biscuit, light bitterness, toasty grain, cereal, stone fruits, touch of spice and touch of honey with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Nothing much double IPA about it. Basic, but ok.

Erasmus_ro (1459) - Alabama, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange with a diminishingly small, white head. Aroma is some fruitiness, Belgian hops, plastic glue, light citrus. Taste is somewhat caramelly, biscuity, somewhat orange, less citrus, light plastic glue. Full with good carbonation. Definitely not a DIPA and even the IPAness might be called to question.
