Bottle: Light amber coloured, hazy, big beaten-egg-white-like stable head with a good lace, moderate to solid piney-hoppy nose with a caramelly-malty counterpart; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft, full bodied; lingering aromatic bitter-hoppy finish, balanced by a certain quantity of sweetish malt. Very nice brew.....

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2011
(bottle, 75cl, purchased at a drinks market in Neuötting/Bavaria) Hazy, amber colour with a tall and slowly lacing off-white foamy head. Present cara-malty and slightly yeasty spicy aroma with notes of marzipan and a mildly fruity and piney hoppy touch. Moderately bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a pleasantly calm carbonation. Mildly cara-malty base with mainly fruity hops but above that also with a mildly vinous yeasty fruity touch towards the bitter-sweet finish. Recommended. 31.X.11

Christian (12953) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2011
Kindly shared by Stefan at Indslev Bryggeri. Hazy amber with a big off-white head. Malty aroma with fruity peach notes. Sweet fruity flavour with peachy hops and a good firm bitterness. The alcohol is a bit obvious but otherwise an excellent German IPA

Tripplebeer (62) - - AUG 25, 2011
Excellent India Pale Ale, strong - however, well balanced with a firm malt core - covered into dominating hops. The beer drinks easy considering the amount of alkohol. Lively carbonation, malty notes, some bitterness and lasting hop flavour. Liked it!

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Der hopfige Antrunk wirkt aufgrund seiner kernigen Grundnoten, die an eine Mischung aus Bock und Märzen erinnern, ziemlich deutsch. Untypisch ist natürlich der starke Hopfen, der dunkel daherkommt und weder besonders blumig noch grasig wirkt. Im Mittelteil stört es, dass das Bier stark karbonisiert ist, erkennbar sind aber analoge Biternoten zum Hopfen, zunehmend setzt sich der kernige Grundton durch, das Bier wird so würziger, die Bitterkeit umschließt den aufkommenden Malzton. Der Hopfen verliert so etwas an Einfluss, bleibt aber bis zum Ende das stärkste Aroma. So ganz harmonieren die Hauptaromen leider nicht miteinander, dafür ist die der Grundton zu stark. Dennoch ein interessantes und gelungenes Bier. 9/11/9/10/7/11
