50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 27.09.2012olio (10695) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Aroma is rather nice with hops, some exotic fruits, caramel, biscuits and hints of gooseberry bush. Flavour is also rather hoppy with resin, some caramel, gooseberries and hints of biscuits. Good IPA, although a bit too stuffy and sweet.

Pours a cloudy amber coloud with a white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, sweet orange and even some spiciness. Flavour of biscuity malts, English hops, grass, nuts and some hay. Weak fruitiness. Medium bodied, rough malty mouthfeel and a malty, light bitter and sweet finish. Sucky hop profile, at least for me. Everything else seems to work nicely.
Tap at Hallertauer Bierfestival 2012, as Eric’s PA. Cloudy orange, offwhite lace. Big pine and mango hop aromatics, kicks a lot of the Hallertau offerings to the curb. Sweet mango and pineapple aromatics in the flavor. Chewy body, yeast dryness. Tropical and pine hop finish. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Slender swing-top with just hideous, hideous quality control on the labeling - was BierZwerg supplied with the bottom of the barrel? MHD 27.09.2012. Very hoppy nose, exotic fruit, big lychee with some light peach and medium pine, bread and sticky caramel. Oop, there’s the cookie dough. Hazy red-tinged orange with a rocky off-white head. Taste is sweet and bitter, nothing extreme, a little rubber from the doughy caramel, cleanses the palate and then sticks it with pine needles. Drier, soapier aftertaste (there’s some definite Southern California here). Smooth medium body. Ultimately disappoints, but the beginning moments are quite good. promontor (165) - HUNGARY - MAY 26, 2012
On tap at Sörspecialista. Starts wih wonderful aromas, floral and fruity (berries and grapes). Colour is dark gold, maybe a bit reddish. Nice and persistent head, a bit creamy. Taste is again wonderful, biiter as an IPA, but also has a lot of complexity, spicy citrus, some other fruits e.g. grapes. Has a bit more bread and sweetness than other IPAs and also has a very nice and persistent bittersweet aftertaste. A very memorable IPA wih a Bavarian touch and I like this combo very much. Case (304) - GERMANY - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle from Bierzwerg. Pours clear orange with large white head. Wonderful strong aroma of hops, citrus, pine, grass, a bit of sweet candy sugar. Taste is flowery and bitter-sweet, there’s a strong sweet malt backbone with caramel, candy sugar and turkish delight offset by a medium hops bitterness. Alcohol is not noticable at all. Very tasty, even if a bit too sweet. HopfenWeisse (1558) - - MAY 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 From old back log. Nice looking swing top bottle from Beershop Bavaria. Hazy golden colour with nice head. Great tasting hoppy ipa.Have to try again if possible.
