ElDesmadre (2319) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle, traded with Allen. Strongly hopped beer, with notes of apricot and peach upfront, while pine and pale malts are somewhat less present. Nice, full body that balances the strong bitterness with its sweetness. Soft mouthfeel with a rather dry finish. Not overhopped, has just the right balance. Even the slight astringency doesn’t seem to be out of place. Very good!

Bottle at Fork and Bottle, Zürich. Hazy deep amber, small head. Fruity nose, nice fruity bitterness. A gentle version of a double IPA.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2013
33cl, danke Allen! - Potent, after dinner maracuja mousse of a double IPA with plenty of character and a good medium, sweet malt backbone. Even picked up some more close-to-home fruit notes from the yeast, like pear and Apfelstrudel. Some alcohol, hops doing their job and not competing to take palate-numbing centre stage. Confident brew, nice dessert to conclude a series of meal-accompaniers from Trois Dames.

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly yeasty, malty aroma with fruity hops including notes of grapefruit and a shy piney touch. Quite bitter flavour with a tinge of sweet malt, almost full bodied with a soft carbonation. Skightly honey-ish malty base with fruity (citrus, grapefruit, maracuja) and delicately zesty hoppy notes; bitter and mildly sweet finish with a fruity hoppy tail. 06.II.13

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle (fortunately n o t traded with Allen!): Golden, hazy, stable white foamy layer, fruity and aromatic hoppy nose, a distinctive yeasty touch in the background; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; dryish lingering hoppy-yeasty finish. Yes...

kappldav123 (5542) - GERMANY - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass orange-golden, nice head. Starts strong, intense hoppy, not too dry. Mild bitterness. Fine fruity notes of peaches. Finish well balanced, a bit drier. Very drinkable. Good one!

puboflyons (2637) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2012
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a slightly hazy copper-orange with a small head. The aroma is powerful with hops and various liquors. The body is creamy and medium. The taste is a little malty at first but it quickly has a pungent hard liquor feel with pepper. It really has a lot of character from start to finish but not quite my thing.

dfearnley (1365) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
750mL bottle to taster Rose, toasted malts, alcohol. Appearance is horrible, plenty of particulates floating around and a 4mm pile of yeast. Taste is very interesting...sort of like drinking a hoppy Brie. Medium bodied but gritty.

Ferris (8448) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle - Sweet and perfumy with some strong yeast notes. Cloudy brown with a minimal head. The perfume persists with a heavy rose flavor dominating with some resin and a nice fruity sweetness. Very light on the palate. A great light IPA which is odd fo a double.
