Veramente strana, ha nolto caramello, ed č dolcissima, non ritrovo luppolo ma ribes e lamponi. Molto carbonata, forse non era fresca.

Davros (2256) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours copper with a fading head. Nose shows sweet malt, caramel, pine and resinous hops. Very malty. Malty flavours too but not all that sweet. Massive amounts of bready notes, some soft pine in there. Not all that hoppy.

olliejobbins (1321) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours clear ruby/chestnut brown with thin beige head. Aroma is packed with hops, yeast and bread. Super smooth texture. Nice hoppy taste with a slightly sweet caramel/nutty after taste.

MarkoNm (1292) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a hazy dark amber color, topped with a decent and lasting beige colored head. Very mild caramel aroma, notes of hops also present. Taste starts sweet and fruity (berries), followed by a very decent bitterness and a hoppy taste. Herbal in the aftertaste, Easily drinkable and enjoyable.

Stew41 (1796) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2015
This bottle might not be in the best shape? Very modestly flavoured with the exception of some faint spicy hops. Otherwise the shyness seems quite strange. Will need to take another look.

MMR (517) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2015
Without a doubt very different from the Molen Brewery’s ’Vuur & Vlam’ but also different from the Struise signature beers. Nevertheless a very nice aromatic IPA. Not too heavy on the hops but rather refreshing.

Bosbouw (1723) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Donkere oranje bruine kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt honing, hop, bloemig. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, hop, honing. Bittere afdronk.

ABS (694) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2015
Cascade version. Dark copper/brown/red colour. Finger thick, small-bubbled, white head. Very long lasting head. Quite sour nose. Caramel and malt. Some alcohol. Slight sweet beginning. Low to medium bitter aftertaste. Also some sourness. Wine, grass, some malt flavour. Medium body and carbonation. Slighly oily. Is this an IPA? I suspect a bad bottle....

mutz (702) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2015
Bruinoranje kleur, dichte kraag. Ruikt moutig en een beetje zurig, smaakt naar caramel, bitterfruitig, medium body. Niet zo mijn smaak.
