Douberd (2070) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece. Pours a nice orange coloured beer, slighty hazy, with a good sized off-white head on top. Good retention, light lacing left on the glass. Nice aroma of hops, some citrus, resin. Great taste, lots of citrus, some pine, resin, some malts and caramel on the finish jst before the bitterness from hops kicks in. Quite long aftertaste too. Medium body, good soft carbonation. Overall a very good beer, I wish it was wider available.

bwa5879 (611) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Very hazy solid orange pour with inch of white head. Light robust hop aroma, bitter with mostly resin/citrus present. Average carbonation and mouthfeel, crisp dry finish. Taste is big and american, very assertive floral hops with citrus but less so, a little piney, solid malt backbone and bitter finish. Very good IPA, I’d be interested to see how Greeks like it.

It poured a hazy dark amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of citrusy hops, malt, caramel and some spices. The taste was of spicy hops, lemons, straw and some caramel. Nice.

0,75l Flasche. Tiefgoldenes, fast rötliches Bier mit fester weißer Schaumkrone. Es riecht nach tropischen Früchten. Schmeckt nach Citrus, Ananas im Abgang Bitter nach Hopfen, Shr gut abgestimmt!

visionthing (2604) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Citrusy and yeasty aroma with pine and hints tropical fruits and barnyard. Moderate sweet with some strange yeasty notes and a fairly mild bitterness for an IPA. Fair enough.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is hazy dark amber with a big creamy beige head. The aroma is fruity with notes of peach, but also oak and a little nuts, forest floor and berries. Very interesting with clear signs of white wine. The taste still bears fruitiness with more grassy hops, but also a bit of the berry touch from the aroma and has a slightly dry aftertaste. Mouth feel is smooth, and the beer has a nice balanced medium bitterness. This is a great IPA with an interesting aroma with a slightly acidic flavor. The taste is good with a great hoppy touch.
