jmgreenuk (4973) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Cask at the Birmingham CAMRA festival 2014. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a round frothy white head. The aroma is a big orange citrus fruit malt. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a crisp refreshing super zesty light toothpaste hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A superb ale.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2014
from Apothibières - light hazy dark blond beer under a solid and long lasting white foam; hoppy aroma of pears, citrus and spices; some sweetness, fizzy and full-bodied; fairly bitter and with some residual sweetness; long spicy and fruity finish - more a hoppy tripel than a double IPA to my eyes

guzgorog (345) - FRANCE - SEP 27, 2014
Blonde dorée, peu de mousse blanche qui s’efface très vite, bulles vivantes très longtemps. Nez fruité : citron, fruits exotiques et résineux. Bouche surtout les agrumes : pamplemousse, citron , léger côté pin encore. Belle carbonation, manque de corps pour une double IPA. Pas très subtile, c’est indiqué sur la bouteille, mais le houblon qu’est-ce que c’est bon !

Moravius (599) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Goldgelb, klar, bescheidene Schaumbildung. - In der Nase intensive Pampelmuse, Zitrone, Ananas, Kiefer und malzige Honigsüße. - Im Antrunk wuchtige Pampelmuse, bittere Aprikose, harziger Hopfen. Wuchtige aber noch angenehme Bittere. Im Hintergrund milde Honigsüße. Mild rezent; schwer, beinahe dick im Mund. Auch im Abgang schwere zitrusfruchtige Bittere. Heftig bitterer aber etwas schaler Nachtrunk. - Ein wuchtiges, etwas eindimensional gehopftes IPA mit zu dick geratenem Körper, der dem Ganzen eine beklemmende Schwere gibt. Etwas weniger Körper würde besser mit den Hopfenaromen harmonieren. Man muß nicht alles übertreiben ...
