Kauge (93) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Õllepood nr 1 Gambrinus in Tartu (€ 4,80), August 2014. Cool design, although the Comic Sansish font on the rear does raise some eyebrows (I mean at least two of mine). Colour is a pale yet murky orange. Head is off-white and... massive! It drops slowly and leaves a considerable lacing. Nose is extremely piney and resinous, giving off great early autumny warmth, plus some dried apricots. More maltiness appears as it warms. Taste is pine resin, ripe tropical fruits (juicy) and malts. The extreme bitterness is well balanced by the sweetish, biscuity malts. I don’t get much citrusy aspects anywhere here. The 9,3% ABV in here is well hidden, only hinting at its own existence in the looong, soothing, bitter and warming finish... and... well, actually the last 1/3 is rather alcoholic to be honest - but in an enjoyable way. Full body, velvety smooth mouthfeel and a sticky palate; carbonation is low. I love such stuff. And so do the many fruit flies I see hovering above my glass... Overall a very good DIPA (though I do enjoy many of the other widely available ones more) best enjoyed in the beginning of a Nordic autumn when some leaves have already fallen and become the same colour as this beverage. Oh I so will one day enjoy this on a bench in Kadriorg park, surrounded by yellow maple leaves!

Bottle 0.33 l. Cloudy liquid, looks like apricot juice. Average yellowish head. Full body, light carbonation. Rich with taste of fruits like pineapple, apricot and peach, citruses, touch of herbs. Medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness, long lasting finish. Very good one.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 9,3 % ABV, købt i Mikkeller & Friends' Bottleshop, 15. august 2014. Ufiltreret orange/honning-farvet Imperial IPA med stor offwhite skumtop, 7 cm. 1' indtryk: Sød-/syrlig aroma af citrus, honning, græs. Holy smoke, this is gut! Dejlig balance mellem en solid og dog ydmyg sødme og den fine humlebitterhed. Sødmen er næsten som en fin sommerkåbe til det bitre. Smagen er krydret og har den på-grænsen-til-det-beske-afslutning, men lidt mere forfinet i denne øl. 2' aromaindtryk: fersken, blomst. Stald. Fyldig og rund krop med let perlende mundfornemmelse. CO2 under medium niveau. Blød og fræk skarp på én og samme gang. Eftersmagen er både fin, lang og afbrudt. I virkeligheden er den bitre smag nok i "overtal", men i parløb med en sådan sødme, er det dén, man bemærker. If this is "Dangerously Close To Stupid", I don't mind being regarded as retarded! Pure enjoyment!

Swaroga (1304) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : kompletnie mętne piwo o kolorze jasnej pomarańczy. Piana jest wielka jak na ten styl. kolor piany jest biały. NOS : aromat piwa jest intensywny ale co mnie zaskoczyło, jest bardzo owocowy i cukierkowy a alkoholu nie czuje prawie wcale. Po wzburzeniu świeżość piwa jest równie zaskakująca. Wyczuwam aromaty tarty i herbatników, zielonej herbaty, mandarynki, skorki pomarańcza, pompelo i cytryny, marakui i mango. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane o konsystencji mleka. Piwo jest zaskakujące bo po nazwie spodziewamy się mnóstwa goryczy a tutaj piwo jest delikatne. Nuty słodowe przypominają typowe dla tego stylu smak lekko skarmelizowanej tarty. Słodycz natomiast pochodzi również z nut owocowych. tak jakby przesłodzony sok owocowy albo popijany sokiem cukierek owocowy. Gorycz jest średnia. Przypomina pestki słodkich cytrusów. Posmak jest subtelnie gorzki i przenika delikatną słodyczą. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest smaczne i zaskakujące. Po pierwsze mało gorzkie a po drugie alkohol jest fantastycznie dobrze schowany. Piwo przypomina bardziej zwykłą IPe niż Imperial IPe. SMAK : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : 0

MunBro (315) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Aroma was a big blast of hops and citrus. Had a 4 finger foam head despite a polished pour into an IPA glass but it faded down to a proper size quickly which was appreciated. Very well balanced hop bitterness with the citrus and malts. A great DIPA!

wvhoran (161) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle with Sylvia and Floris. Cloudy orange with a large creamy off-white head. Monstrous aroma of thick peachy hops, citrus, pineapple, and caramel. The flavour follows suit, with huge sticky sweet hop flavours, tropical fruits. Kind of syrupy. Great stuff, kicking off IPA day well with this one.
