Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff mai-12: tok bare et bilde av denne, så jeg støtter meg til Asle Bjørn: Muddy hazelnut body with a creamy, tan colored film. Rich malty sprucy nose. Sweet fruity hoppy bitter mouth. Full bodied. Doughy texture. Lasting finish. Må derfor prøves igjen.

Buon aroma,ma abbastanza deludente al gusto.Spero fosse una bottiglia non in forma.Mi aspettavo di più veramente.Niente di eccezionale soprattutto considerato il prezzo.

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 (2744) - 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, it’s 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!!!
