jamaty (1441) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Ocre, color tierra casi opaca. Un dedo de espuma crema. Aroma especiado, escaso. Textura magnifica, muy cremosa. Muy rica malta de base, acaramelada. Rodeada de un excelente toque frutal para acabar en un final más seco y fuertemente amargo, que sin embargo deja recuerdos frutales en el paladar, predominando la uva. Una IPA diferente, menos lupulada, bien amarga, pero con el saber hacer de los cerveceros belgas. Notable

Icedwarf (851) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zacht en niet bitter hoppig, echter wel fruitig, aardbei en framboos. Smaak blijft helaas niet heel lang hangen. Verder we een geslaagd bier.

hohops (570) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Appearance is a deep ruby red, a bubbly off-white covering which doesn’t really last. Aroma- very malty, raisiny bread, grapefruit, tropical fruits, hint of toffee. Taste- plenty of fruit- orange and grapefruit, but also some dark fruits, sultanas for instance. Firm malt presence which helps boost the mouthfeel. Short finish with a hint of cherry. Good stuff.

zacgillbanks (3430) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Hazy copper coloured with a slight tart red fruity flavour, chocolate and bitter orange notes followed by marzipan, oak, warming spicy plum and a burnt currant creamy finish. Excellent!

Pours reddish brown with light brown creamy head. Aroma is gorgeous, with predominant notes of strawberry, pineapple and little orange. Taste is firstly sweet with dry finish, and fine long lasting hoppiness. Medium body, soft carbonation and medium bitterness.

KW92 (676) - WARSAW, POLAND - MAY 13, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana wysoka, drobna, obfita
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Mocno cytrynowy (nie mylić z cytusowym) i owoce, bynajmniej tropikalne (morela). Fajne nuty belgijskie.
SMAK: Znów bardzo cytrynowe. Przełamane wyraźnym alkoholu w posmaku. Goryczka średnia - cytrynowo-alkoholowa, długa.
OGÓLNIE: Degustując owe piwo odnosi się wrażenie, że mamy oto przed sobą "cytrynówkę" o niskiej zawartości alkoholu. Jest wyraźny rozgrzewający przełyk alkohol oraz długi cytrynowy posmak.

visionthing (3770) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle from Struise Beershop, Brugge. Pours hazy amber to brown with an off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with citrus, tropical fruits and hints of pine and herbs, some caramel and notes of yeast too. Moderate to medium sweet with balanced fruity and hoppy flavours and a nice bitterness. Medium+ body with carbonation on the soft side. Nice IPA. [BB: 07/17 - dry hopped with cascade]

hawthorne00 (2947) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, bb 8/17. Amber with an off white head. Powerful aroma of toffee, dried fruit, pine, grapefruit, spices. Some boozy musty grape notes too. Rich and surprisingly boozy for 7%. Sweet dried fruit and toffee, tenor register citrus, pine. Only vaguely reminiscent of the de Molen beer and not at all of the "aromatic hops and neutral malt" strand of IPAs. Very satisfying drop.
