12 oz can poured into a pint glass. A: Pours an amber color with tiny specks of yeast floating around. The head is a creamy two finger offwhite shade. While retention isnt the greatest, I love the texture and the lacing it leaves behind. S: The hops have faded a bit on this one, but it still provides hints of pine and grapefruit. Theres a lot of caramel and toffee malt featured here, as well. Decent aroma here. T: I first notice some minor piny hop flavors to start, before it washes away with a lot toffee-esque malt. The finish is earthy with touches of fruity esters (unheard of in an American IPA, it seems); to the point where one could mistake the back end for excess booziness. The earthy nature of the malts arent my cup of tea, but its okay otherwise. Seems to be a bit more complex than many others in the style. M: Its well attenuated for all of its maltiness, creating a fairly dry brew in spite of the faded hops and creamy feel. There is a bit of lingering sweetness on the front of the palate, which is expected. O: Gotta love a canned IPA, even if this one isnt fantastic. Ill have to give this a second chance fresh.

12oz can at the spring 2017 ASMF. Puts with a lightly hazy body topped by a large, durable, foamy, bone - colored head. Pine and fruit hop notes dominate the aroma and the flavor, with some biscuit from the malt appearing in both. Moderate bitterness for style. Medium body and carbonation.

Grass and citrus aroma, massive life and fizz. Grassy hops and bitter, refreshing bite at the back of the throat. Fantastic.

Idiosynkrasie (7227) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2017
355ml can. Slightly milky, orangey golden colour with average to huge, fluffy, moderately lasting and lacing, white head. Piney and citrusy, hoppy aroma, notes of lemon, tangerine, pineapple, sweet-ish pale and crystal malty backbone. Taste is citrusy and slightly piney hoppy, initially lemon juice dominated, orange zest supplemented, later via additional grassy notes more and more dry and piney; slightly sweet malty backbone throughout. Hardly attaining the finish any signs of hop flavour-superstructure suddenly break away, just a layer of chalky bitterness covers the malty basis anymore.
