Benzai (12378) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Draught @ Hoppy Days. Hazy orange color, medium to full white to off-white head. Nice hoppy, grassy, fruity aroma. Taste lightly malts, hops, fruit hops, lightly grassy, nicely bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Good stuff!

Buonissima IPA, in pieno stile. Dal colore ramato e schiuma compatta e persistente al naso sprigiona tutta la sua potenza erbacea e resinosa, con qualche nota terrosa. In bocca il gusto dei malti caramello ben si sposa con l’amaricatura generosa dei luppoli. Corpo importante e carbonazione giusta. Non stanca, anzi risulta nel suo formato da 75 cl la quantità minima per una persona. Etichetta STUPENDA!!!!

McWorta (1296) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 6, 2014
Light amber, clear coloured with a frothy dark white head. On the nose aromas of grapefruit, dried citrus/orange peel with a light barnyard noteand a touch of dried tropical fruit arise. Lightly carbonated it develops some light slick effervescence. Medium bodied somewhat fruity sweet with well defined citrusy, grassy hop notes developing bitterness which stays for a good while drying out eventually.

jmohno (1460) - Iowa, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Hazed orange, mostly foam, potential Belgian style or infected. Definatly a funky type nose of Belgian yeast, overly fruity for a ipa with fruit Belgian notes. Almost thin alcoholy taste dry and very bitter. Didn’t know this was going to be a Belgian style ipa. Extremly bitter with almost no malt body or taste, taste fermented out/infected. ?

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Coniferous wooden notes perfuse this IPA’s lean caramelized sugars, building moderate, balancing bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A puffy head of foam bobs atop the shiny amber.
-Carbonation is a bit zealous for the style.
-The flavour profile is relatively simple, mainly playing on two notes (conifers and caramel).
-The hops possess compelling cedar-like angles.
-This is very well made but the recipe is rather boring.

Bottle.

La birra si presenta scura e con molta schiuma, che in poco tempo si dirada lasciando il giusto spessore di poco meno di un dito. A mio parere è la birra più amara che abbia mai bevuto, non per questo è brutta, l’amaro si lascia apprezzare da quando è sulla lingua fino al retrogusto secco. Ha il fascino delle IPA e lo si sente subito dal profumo che sprigiona dato dagli specifici luppoli usati. Nel complesso una buona birra, consigliata!

On tap @ La Fine Mousse (Paris). Slightly hazy bright amber with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is malty (a tad too much) with grapefruit, caramel and light resinous notes. Taste is moderately sweet with toasted malt, caramel, light chocolate notes, grapefruits and very light resinous bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel and somewhat dry finish. Average/good IPA and decent drinkability despite the fact it’s not really on style.
