At Rooie Dop, we don’t really care about styles. But this is our version of an American IPA. Classic example of the style? Fits perfectly into the category? No. Does it need to be? It just needs to be pretty tasty! Chinook and Cascade hops dominate this beer and are assisted by a biscuity malty backbone. You just can’t resist a Chica Americana!

Backlog rating. Draft at GBBF 2015. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is lightly sweet malty fruity with notes of lemon peel, grapefruit and pine cones. Taste is also medium sweet fruity with more notes of melon, caramel, grapefruit and citrus peel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice one

Ipa de 7,1 % abv brassée à l’époque chez de Molen. Cette bière n’existe plus, elle a été modifiée par le brasseur dans ce qu’il appelle un "upgrade"en la plaçant à 6,6 % !!, c’est-à-dire moins forte que celle-ci. Il n’était d’ailleurs pas certain que la version présente soit bien une ipa … Je serais assez d’accord avec lui en la classant plutôt en "amber ale". Malts pâle, munich et cara. Flocons d’avoine. Houblonnage en amarillo, cascade, chinook et columbus. (La nouvelle version a éliminé l’amarillo …). Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambrée à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes sur les parois, vives. Mousse beige à flocons épais, qui nappe à 1 mm. Arômes de foin coupé, miel de tilleul, zeste d’orange, abricot, chapelure. 1ère bouche structurée à l’entame malt/houblons, avec assez d’épices. Arrière-bouche plutôt sur les épices, girofle et une amertume verte. 2ème assez lisse, avec une fusion malt et houblon. Arrière-bouche avec des nuances d’amertume verte assez originales. 3ème avec des agrumes mûrs, houblon fleuri, texture lisse. Arrière-bouche assez équilibrée. Longueur avec quelques belles nuances, mais manque de complexité, et perte de contrôle par la suite. Jambes un peu huileuses. Levure assez terreuse, ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne tient pas sur la longueur, malgré son bon niveau. Finale un peu triste. CONCLUSION : des atouts dans cette bière, mais aussi des faiblesses sur la longueur. Son côté très lisse plaide en faveur d’une "amber ale". Le brasseur l’a donc modifiée comme indiqué plus haut.

Grzesiek79 (4030) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Piwo Mocno alkoholowe, rozgrzewający finisz, przypominal raczej Imperialne IPA. Piana biala, srednia, ale trwala i dobrej jakości. Bardzo ciemne, brazowe i błotniste. Karmel, przypalony chleb w smaku i trochę pieczonych kasztanow. Zywiczny zapach i trochę cytrusow. Goryczka zalega i zalepia wraz z alkoholem gardlo. Dobre rzemiosło zrobione w browarze mlynskim, szkoda ze już nie będzie kontynuowane.

(Rooie Dop Chica Americana IPA) Can’t believe I haven’t rated this one, pretty sure I had it a couple of times, glad I found another bottle. Bottling date 12/11/14, 330 ml bottle served into a shaker, ABV 7.1% Dark orange to light amber coloured body, clear, with a tall but frithy off-white head, with low retention. Aroma has caramel ,malts, faint citrus, faint orange, spicy yeast. Taste is bitter with citrus, orange peel, pine, caramel malts, biscuit. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Okay I’d say.

Quite hazy amber colour. Nice aroma with caramel, fruit and some grass. Taste is well balanced, but quite light for IPA. Notes of citrus, wood, some hay, caramel. Strongly too much carbonisation - runs out of bottle. Nice beer, but carbo ruins it.

Aroma is sweet citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness.Taste is light citrus and pine sweetness, tempered by a tame hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, mild alcohol warmth, and very well balanced.

Tap at Erzbierschof. By the listed ABV, it’s actually the retired one. Sweetish aroma, but rather mellow for an IPA. Taste us very balanced and smooth, making it very pleasant to drink. Not the most interesting one by aroma, but worth a try for balance.
