imperial IPA eccezionale. ambrata con schiuma sottile e poco persistente. Al naso piacevolissima con sentori di mandarino e lieve erbeceo. in bocca esplosione di sensaziono. Ottima

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2012
Hazy brown colour, firm beige head. Aroma of American hops, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pineapple and guave. Hoppy bitter flavour, light sweet malts. Bitter, fruity finish.
Quite balanced, itís a really nice IIPA.
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT IV. 8.5% ABV Thanks for sharing, Benzai & DutchDrebus!)

Una birra eccezionale. Una volta provata la si cerca avidamente. Cosa per me piuttosto rara.

Dark amber body and frothy white head, releases a heavy hoppy aroma. Taste is moderate bitter, with a full creamy body and soft carbonation.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - JUL 22, 2012
Una 2perIPA meravigliosa come non mi era mai capitato di sentire, Aromatica super saporita ma diversa dalle solite retrogusto ultra persistente, rossissima con molta schiuma quando si versa ma che svanisce in fretta. Talmente saporita, se bevuta alla temperatura giusta, da sopraffare Kimochi, roba koreana saporitissima, e il camenberth, e in grado di rivaleggiare con un paio di formaggi belgi erborinati!!! Semplicemente DIVINA!!!

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2012
75cl bottle. Dark brown, canít see through it. medium tanned head. Nose : tart, burned caramel and a bit toffee. Distinctive citrus notes like a grapefruit or orange peel but all that mixed into a tart overall aroma. Sip ; medium body with thick and oily texture. Full body with low carbonation. Itís sweet tart background with overpowering bitterness that reminds me of a coffee where I use to like drop some lemon juice in it apart that here I would replace it with some grapefruit. The taste and body is close to Shark Pants from struise brewers. Long aftertaste makes my lips become sticky. Intensive. Must enjoy.

Countbeer (4031) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle @ZZT IV: Creamy light tan ish head, disappears really slow on top of a deep dark hazy amber colored beer. Doesnít really look like a DIPA, but the long staying lovely head makes it still very nice to watch. Smell lots of hops (duh), citrus, pine, light grape, light creamy, resin. Taste is a pretty subtle mix of: fruity hop notes pine, citrus, mango, apricot, resin, hops, bitter, hop bitter, some creamy notes and a nice hint of malts/barley malts. Aftertaste of hops, grass, bitter and fruit. Very good aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Gentle, soft and smooth!

Abio (1518) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2012
Good hoppy beer, mostly citrus, but also grassy. Fruity combination, some mango besides the citrus. Misses something, but not bad at all.

Barrelbelly (596) - BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2012
Grassy citrus aroma. Taste grainy, grassy, citrus. Long bitter aftertaste but misses some complexity, especially in the aftertaste. Very decent italian beer dough.
