Buena IPA recomendación de David de Cervezorama. Se hace bastante presente en Soriachi...sobre todo en boca con ese cocconut y punto herbal...en general en aroma bastante tropical y maltosa, algo herbal y resinada. En boca equilibrada y de trago largo... No me ha durado nada. ;-(... El precio quizás un pelin alto, pero es repetible.

Pours a really hazy orange color with medium white head. Really tropical and citrus aroma, orange zest, grepfruit, papaya and slightly pine. taste follows the aroma, very tropical and citrusy, with orange, lemon peel, grapefruit, mango, papaya and pine, with a strong bitter aftertaste.

33 cl bottle. In the glass the beer shows itself with a hazy golden colour, with a lot of "stuff" floating and very few bubbles, despite the nice pallid and compact head. The nose is immediately flooded by tropical scents where above all stand out the pineapples and mango, reminiscing a fruit juice more than a beer. So one may expect a very sweet beer, but is an IPA after all and in fact it is not. Taste is another surprise. The tropical fruits are there but way less powerful and the beer is bitter, but it is not the typical hop bitterness but that of citrus; I would say pink grapefruit definitely. The effect is remarkable: on one hand the sweet taste of pineapple, on the other the citrus bitterness that lasts very long. Alcohol is very well hidden. The body and the medium-low carbonation remind me again the consistency of a fruit juice. Interesting beer, very drinkable, but after the first glass I hardly will have another one to follow.

Strong on fruit, spices and special hops. Love the freshness and the blend of aromas that last on your tongue. Very smooth and drinkable.

Heidbummer (152) - SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2016
1/3 as part of a flight Brewdog Liverpool. Pours murky gold and aroma quote yeasty. Much better to drink! Really interesting. Full body, initially yeast and a bit of fruit but a nice dry bitter finish. Great stuff.

eduardovl (1305) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2016
330ml bottle served in a plasic goblet. Enjoyed at Craftissimo - Hong Kong. Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a medium and persistent white head that forms and leaves lots of lacings in the glass. Nose is great. Flowery, grassy, citrus and quite spice thanks to the delicious Sorachi Ace hops. Sweet pale grains backbone. Taste follows the nose: Slightly sweet upfront, pale and crystal malts follows by great fruity notes: Grapefruits, mainly. Orange zest and grass with light notes of pine. Great hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Citrus aftertaste. Great drinkability. Masterpiece.

On tap. dorata opalescente, schiuma bianca persistente. Aroma esotico e citrico, palato non troppo attenuato. amaro possente

Nische (1763) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle from boxbeers.dk. Somewhat hazy orange with frothy, long lasting, white head. Very fruity aroma with papaya, grapefruit, lemon, grain and light pine. Bitter, hoppy taste with lemon, grapefruit and mango. A little bit zesty punch to it. Very bitter, hoppy finish. It kind of intensifies as you drink more. Quite balanced, yet I believe it is past it’s prime (probably 5 months old I reckon).

Aroma is fruit and complex floral hops. The flavor is fruit, mild lemon, hops/hop resin, malts and an increasingly bitter finish.

IlGagario (109) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 7, 2016
On tap. Colore giallo ocra con note verdastre. Schiuma corta di media persistenza. Bouquet etilico, un po’ scarico di fiori, comunque fresco e pungente, solo leggermente citrico, in lontananza agrume. Aroma luppolato, sottilmente saponato e sensazione di cartone. Carbonazione un po’ troppo attiva che rileva difetti di controllo delle astringenze citriche e che nasconde note che l’olfatto prometteva ma la bocca neglette. Poche emozioni, frutta poco valorizzata. Un po’ vuota, con l’alcool troppo in evidenza. Finale destrutturante irrimediabilmente saponato. Non mi è piaciuta.
