This was the Green Hopped 2009 Harvest. Very tasty. Strong hop flavors. One of the more floral hop tasting IPAs I’ve had. Cloudy and a touch sweet. Well done. Serving: Bottle

500ml bottle courtesy of international beer shop. Nice light and crisp appearance, a lot of sediment in this bottle doesn't hinder the taste, very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

humpah (28) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2016
From notes: Bottle at Revolution, Jyväskylä. Pours pale yellow hazy colour with some head. Citrusy and fruity aroma. Taste is a bit sweet, moderately bitter and hoppy. Pretty light/drinkable.

anstei (874) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle from Wittich online shop. Cloudy yellow with a quickly dying foam. Not intense on aroma, but with a healthy complex taste. Crisp carbonation, making the sweetness a little less poignant. Good.

tomekboniek (405) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 2, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Butelka. Barwa złota, klarowna jeżeli nie liczyć pływających drobinek drożdży. Piana biała, niska, szybko opadająca. Aromat średnio intensywny. Pachnie ładnie chmielem, cytrusami. Smak wyraźny, intensywny. Jasne owoce, brzoskwinia, grapefruit, nuty kwiatowe. Wysycenie średnie tak jak i goryczka - niezalegająca. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Piwo jest pełne, treściwe i bardzo smaczne. Po ogrzaniu alkohol staje się nieprzyjemny (rozpuszczalnik), wychodzi lekki kalafior, posmaki są lekko zalegające.

cervmagpt (569) - PORTUGAL - JAN 28, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 22A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown (BB 28.11.16). AROMA: predominant hop aroma with tropical notes and a bit of resin. background with a slightly sweet malty profile. APPEARANCE: golden color and translucent. average white head with average retention. TASTE: hop notes similar to aroma (tropical, a bit of resin and pine), wich dominates. background of a neutral, slightly sweet malty presence. High bitterness with a semi-dry and bitter finish that lingers. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a very good and hop focused Imperial IPA.
