Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
Pours clear orange-amber with a huge, off-white head. Not surprisingly, this beer is all about hops. Aroma is citrus, resin and floral hops. Medium sweetness with nice caramel flavors, but then resiny and citrusy hops dominates. Finishes with a long resiny hop bitterness. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty brew. Not the most complex imperial IPA, but certainly has a good balance of hop to malt.

Excalibur123 (320) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2014
Color naranja oscuro con media cabeza de espuma que perdura en la copa; se aprecian aromas a lúpulo, hojas de pino y cítricos, lima y pomelo; en boca entrada potente con amargor moderado, largo pos gusto donde el amargor mantiene su presencia largo tiempo pero sin resultar molesto, notas a resina, una cerveza con buen cuerpo y carbónico bajo; compleja y bien balanceada, una buena opción para los amantes de las ipas.

Zymurgeist2 (1523) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle to glass at Cafe Rose Red in Brugge. First beer in Brugge at a wonderful bar. Aromas explode out of the glass of fresh citrus hop. Slightly haze pale orange with full white head. Amazing flavor as well for a great start to the trip.

lamf (80) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark golden, with nice white head. There are some hops in aroma, but it’s Imperial IPA, so you expect something more. And there is more in flavour. Bitterness is really high, which I actually love. But, if it is an Imperial, there should be more sweetness too. So, it tastes more like standard IPA. I mean, good IPA.

Bottle: Sweetish malt aroma, caramel and candy. Herbal and resin hops. Hazy amber color, off-white creamy head. Flavor is light malty with light sweetness but mainly herbals and resin hops and a intensive alcohol note.

Sebilinz (1361) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Light amber body with white head. Aroma is ripe fruit sweetness with some belgian yeast. Taste is malty with some ripe fruits and hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter balanced by some sweetness. I like these belgian IPAs.
