Russo (1789) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2014
Hazy amber color with a nice white fluffy head. Aroma is sweet fruity like orange and floral hops. Flavor is sweet and hoppy. Medium carbonation with a dry hoppy finish.. An amazing imperial IPA.

33cl bottle into Lagunitas jar. Poured deep bronze, hazy, with some sediment. Very floral aroma. Nicely hoppy, and even nicer that the booze was very subtle. Enjoyed this one - the Belgians are really starting to figure out hoppy...

Pours cloudy gold. Pine spruce. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Oily mouthfeel. Good beer.

Strong amber color with a foamy tan head. Fantastic hops with hints of citrus flavors. Punchy, crisp, not overly bitter. A really nice IPA.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - FEB 22, 2014
On tap. Pours a ruby-like body, with an average, very light brown head that diminishes slowly, leaving a very good lace. Pretty faint, but nice hoppy, citrusy and floral-like aroma, along with a medium to high bitter taste. Light to medium bitter aftertaste, you cal also feel the alcohol. Excessive carbonation, medium body, oily texture. A nice one.

jan23778 (116) - Sant Antoni De Vilamajor, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2014
Pours a nice dark copper with an of white head. I was expecting a noise full of American dry hoping but it is completely different. It almost smells like a trappist ale; an earthy smell with maybe a hint of dark fruit. Unexpected taste too; earthy, a little bitter but with a very slightly fruity background. One of the strangest beers i have had, but quite wonderful and really complex, every ship seems different.

> A probably old bottle of what could be a decent DIPA

>> Thanks MrChopin for the share, thanks ajax25g for the rec. Hazy deeper orange pour. Good foam. Semen nose with chlorine and saltwater. Uhh. Cheese, chlorine as it warms. Taste is tangy, mild bitterness, some sweet orange. Not gross at all, just old and dusty.

<!> stale cheesy hops, semen aroma is offputting

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
hazy amber orange, puffy cream white head. Orange zest and cleaning product nose, meaty with burnt sugars. Flavor similar, orange peel and pineapple with heavy newspaper all over, burnt sugar hints in sticky, full bodied finish.
