UPDATED: APR 23, 2020 Bottle picked up from Beer Republic, Breda, Netherlands, Thursday 23rd April 2020 and consumed at home Attenkirchen on yet another glorious day, wall to wall sunshine, day 37 of lockdown :-(. Tonight is pizza 🍕 night from L'Olive in Thalam (an Italian restaurant in the next village). Pours hazy gold with a white head, tropical fruit in the mouth, I detect a little pineapple and melon, nice steady bitterness, sweetness noted but it is far from being too sweet. Really nice.
snowcrash000 (1432) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 2, 2020
UPDATED: APR 2, 2020 Pours a cloudy, golden amber coloration with a medium, fluffy head. Smells of biscuity, very slightly caramelly malt and tropical/citrus hops, as well as just a hint of pine. Taste is a good balance of biscuity, very slightly caramelly malt and quite fruity, somewhat resinous and slightly floral hops, with tropical/citrus notes of mango, papaya and tangerine, as well as just a hint of pine. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some mango, tangerine and pine lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.
A nice IPA with some fruity, floral and resinous characteristics, finishing with a good bitterness. While the tropical fruit is somewhat dominant here, it's just a tad too floral for my personal taste, although really not that bad, with the resinous accents and good bitterness making up for that. It's perhaps not too expressive, but still perfectly enjoyable, with a good overall balance. Wendigo (3279) - Bratislava, SLOVAKIA - FEB 14, 2020

Nicely malty, not very sweet though. Quite bitter but not as much as most west coast IPAs. Very hoppy, very fruity and tropical. Some grapefruit, guava, papaya, lots of pine, not resiny though. Dry finish. Really nice west coast IPA, superbly drinkable.
