Temptation (255) - - FEB 11, 2013
Reddish copper color, darker than the usual IPAs. Off-white head, medium size and lasting. Hoppy aromas, fresh and fragrant. In nose, there are some hints to fruit and raw malts. It improves in mouth, with a nice balance between nuts and slight sweetness and a great, though constant, development. Elegant, notable beer.

oliodnb (543) - ITALY - AUG 10, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, some citrus marmalade, some sweet fruits. Taste is similar with a medium final bitterness. Some light hoppy flavors. Medium body, medium to strong carbonation. Disappointing.

janubio (542) - SPAIN - AUG 1, 2015
Amber-copper colour, good head that leaves ring and lace. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruits, raisins, licorice, malt. Medium body, creamy palate, lively carbonation. Taste of chocolate, dried fruits, spices, malt, licorice, marzipan. It’s really good but I really can’t find any IPA character here.

anstei (349) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle, Lot 3013220514, dry-hopped with cascade. Pours hazy reddish amber, almost ruby. Smooth hoppy nose, yet not overpowered. Taste is on the fruity side, passionfruit and mango. Matching bitterness and sweetness. A well brewed beer indeed!

markschiedon (376) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2015
Drinking blind from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma spices, sweetness, alcohol, smoke and coffee. The clear, red beer has a small brown head. The taste is wry, tones of caramel. Medium carbonated.

jamaty (1352) - 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 (807) - 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 (553) - 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.
