Benzai (11359) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazy reddish to amber color, average sized beige head that lasts for quite a while. Smell and taste malts, lightly fruitpeel and fruitpeel bitter. Decent body, average carbonation. Hmm drinkable but not great.

Idiosynkrasie (5327) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Cloudy, brown colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Minimally bready, caramel malty aroma, slightly grassy and minimally citrusy hoppy overtones. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, slightly citrusy, a touch of grapefruit, slightly bready and nuttily, caramel malty basis. So so.

mike_77 (4324) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Brown with thick foamy head. Aroma of piney, resinous hop with light tropical fruits. Interesting touch of caramel sweetness on the palate. Light bitterness and a soft finish.

Color ambra. Vaghi sentori di agrumi, ma sicuramente troppo caramello e dolcezza

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2015
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 28 Aug 2015) Hazy amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, citrus, resin and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, citrus, orange peel and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced IPA. Nice one.

sjorsvdg (218) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Deze IPA heeft een fruitige geur, waarin onder andere citrus en doerian te herkennen is. De kleur is kastanjebruin en er is sprake van een mooie schuimlaag. De smaak is fris en aangenaam fruitig. Niet te bitter, maar wel het aangename van een IPA.

Douberd (3714) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2015
(Retorto Krakatoa) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a teku, ABV 6.5% Dark amber colour on the body, tall and thick, creamy, tan head with excellent retention. Aroma has chestnuts, almonds, light grass and faint hops. It doesn’t smell bad but it’s not what I expect from an IPA. Taste is also nutty, with some grains and nuts, faint caramel. Medium thin body, good carbonation, very dry on the palate. Drinkable but it needs improvement.

Another one that doesn’t agree with me. Too resinous and malty. Not my style, well made though

0,4l hanasta @ BQ Milano. Tumman kastanjan värinen, lähes kirkas. Tuoksussa raikasta hedelmäistä humalaa, mallasta. Maussa suht katkeraa humalaa, selvästi havuisuutta, mallasta, hiukan paahteisuutta. Raikkaan katkera jälkimaku.
