adster (351) - HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2014
Réz szín, krémes hab, gyantás és sütőélesztős illatok alkotják az első benyomások tárházát, melyekhez hamarosan az apró, de hegyes szénsavbuborékok és a malátás alapokon nyugvó, szájpadlásra felkapaszkodó kesernyével megjelenő komló csatlakoznak. Voltaképpen ennek a két komponensnek a vonatkozásában értékelhetők leginkább az ital jellegbeli sajátosságai, tehát a főzet jegyei a maláta-komló tengely mentén muzsikálnak, az ekként nyert szimfónia pedig bár nem különösebben meghökkentő, az alapvető fokmérőket előtérbe helyező közönség számára valójában minden igényt kielégítő értékű. A komlós keserűség ez esetben nem az édeskés, dzsúzos jelleget ellensúlyozandó van jelen, leginkább önmagáért élvezhető. Bár visszafogott, de hosszan megmaradó karaktere gondoskodik továbbá utóéletének ápolásáról is. Az előzőek alapján tehát nem egy formabontóan sokszínű, vagy kirobbanó erejű főzetről van szó, elegáns és kiegyensúlyozott jellemvonásai az úgynevezett "egyszerű" india pale ale-ek között magabiztosan előkelő helyre ültetik.

Saeglopur (333) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Dark amber, clear body, with a big, creamy, slightly beige head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma of flowers, grapefruit, tangerine, berries, passion fruit, fresh grass, some herbs, caramel. Tastes of dry grapefruit, flowers, pine, some tropical fruits, grass, herbs, caramel, some biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with lemon zest, pine, grass, some weet malts and some fruits. Tasty! Pretty unique, not as fruity as other IPAs, but with interesting fresh grass, flowery and lots of malt notes. Greatly balanced and very quaffable!

superspak (2611) - Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/30/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, biscuit, light toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus hop and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit. tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Amber with a huge head. Spicy hops, citrus, and toasted malt aromas are well balanced, both on the nose and on the tongue. Toffee lends to a great base for the citrus hop bitterness. Finish is dry but lasting. After a night of beer tasting, this was my cleanser.

aleigator (226) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a clear, brazen-amber color with a minimal, bubbly white head. The aroma is very floral and herbaceous, with a dominant, sweet maltiness among toasty biscuits and grains. The flavor shows a toasted malt base with moderate sweetness, which enhances the uprising fresh, sharp hop bitterness. Green grass and grapefruit bite into the tongue, while the toasty maltiness with hints of toffee keep things in good balance. Medium bodied and crisp on the palate, the finish is on the dry side, while malt still shines trough. The most convincing part of this IPA is its aftertaste, as it is surprisingly long and superdry, with hops sparking very late on the back of the palate, unleashing an enjoyable taste of fruits and grass just at the moment when you begin to think it may be over already.
