Braastad (459) - - OCT 11, 2013
Lots of tropical fruit on the aroma, peach, pineapple. Flavor is well balanced with bready malts and fruity hops. Decent bitter kick too

At Berlin Bar in Copenhagen. Fresh aroma, grass. Powerful head with notes of fruit, blackberry. Heart overwhelmingly bitter. Base a little too boozy.

Aroma of grass, grapefruit & clementine. Hazy golden with very long lasting white head. Medium sweet & very little bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture & soft carbonation.

De Crew Republic(GER) esta American India Pale Ale de nombre “Drunken Sailor”, bastante fuera de lo común que una cervecería alemana se especialice en Ales y mucho mas raro que sean de tipo americano, contra todo pronóstico esta ya es una cervecería que comienza a tomar fuerza y posicionarse de forma global, probemos esta IPA que contiene 6.4% ABV y 58 IBU’s en amargor. Se le puede apreciar una mediana corona de espuma blanquecina conformada de perlas compactas a medianas, mediana retención y baja actividad de carbonatación, posee un color dorado intenso acompañado de turbiedad, cuerpo medio. En aroma es una cerveza básica aunque muy bien lograda pues la intensidad del aroma es la correcta para el estilo, se encuentran notas a toronja, piña, naranja y toques a caramelo. En paladar es medianamente amarga balanceada con dulzor de malta restringido, textura del cuerpo ligeramente resinosa, final semi seco, sabores a toronja, naranja y piña principalmente, aunque de la malta esta un toque a caramelo, la permanencia no es tan basta como generalmente pasa en las IPA’s, retrogusto a toronja, en general se aprecia bien el estilo ya que se llegan a los parámetros en sabor y aroma, esta bien lograda aunque ciertamente no es muy arriesgada la receta.

vincentvega72 (722) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017
Oranjekleurig bier met witte romige schuimkraag die langzaamaan inzakt. Aroma en smaak van appelsien, beetje grapefruit, caramel, mout. Beetje te zoetig naar mijn smaak. Bittertje in de afdronk. Niet slecht maar ook geen hoogvlieger.

whiskyjan (10) - Seefeld in Tirol, AUSTRIA - MAY 19, 2017
Leider viel zu malzig und wenig fruchtig. Im Abgang kommt dann aber zum Glück doch noch der fruchtige Hopfen durch.

monti24 (74) - Graz, AUSTRIA - MAY 17, 2017
Sweet aroma of peaches and apricot. Also taste of peach sweetness together with some caramalt. Quite bitter finish.

GriZZZly (193) - - MAY 13, 2017
Ar: chmiel, ameryka, troche lesnosci, ale slodziej niz inne IPA’y, soczyscie, owoce tropikalne, bardzo swiezo i orzezwiajaco, intensywnosc dobra. Wyg: zlotawo-pomaraczowe, klarowne, minimalnie zamglone, piana raczej cienka, roznoziarnista, swietnie brudzi. Sm: ameryka, chmiel, goryczka zaznaczona, ale umiarkowanie niska jak na IPA, wysycenie dosc niskie, soczyste, lekkie, goryczka troche zalega, stylowe. Pos: chmiel, goryczka lekko zalegajaca, lesnosc.

beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
Zitrusfruchtiger Antrunk, sehr trockener Körper. Hopfennoten dominieren das Bier (Herkules/Citra/Cascade/Simcoe) und lässt die Fruchtigkeit ein bisschen blass aussehen.

3.2
Alengrin (5243) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2017
IPA from one of these still very rare internationally oriented German craft breweries, repeating on its back label the old IPA myth of massively hopping pale ales in order to make them ’survive’ long and perilous journeys over sea. Only a month and a half before its "best before" date so probably already past its prime. Slow gushing but manageable, with careful opening I managed not to lose a drop. Frothy, initially inches thick, egg-white, dense head slowly thinning to a closed, moussy layer of foam while leaving behind a trail of irregular lacing; lightly hazy old gold robe with warm orangey hue, made more hazy by tons of translucent floaters throughout from the start, becoming more of an ’old orange’ and completely clouded in the end. Aroma of stale and spoilt lime juice, moldy orange peel, some spritzy grapefruit zest, withering flowers, old pickled onions, something sharply and disturbingly sulfuric (burnt rubber) doubtlessly related to yeast autolysis, much fainter hints of mandarin, spoilt cucumber flesh, fried egg, warm toast, minerals, chlorine, fresh green algae - in all, clearly faded over time and further ruined by inappropriate dead yeast releasing off-flavours which overpower whatever is left of the New World hop fragrance, a pity considering the hops that went in here. Crisp onset, restrained but clean fruitiness with some red apple, dried pineapple and green banana, vaguely sweetish with a somewhat more expressive sourish ’green plum’ touch but everything a bit subdued, edged by a notable mineral effect, as in heavily mineralized sparkling water. Crisp, supple, light mouthfeel though with the carbonation a bit on the sharp side for the style; some salty accents from ’old’ hops here and there, accompanying a smooth pale malt sweetish, cereally core with a light biscuity accent. Meanwhile the hop bitterness builds up, accentuating the minerally factor and becoming quite strong, drying and quinine-like in the end, sticking to the back of the mouth but not too extendedly so. This hop bitterness shows a very pleasant spicy character in the mouth, but little of the lush citrusy retronasal effects I tend to expect from the style, even if classically ’West Coast’ in concept like this one, just something vaguely old citrus peel- and more clearly old herb-like. Needs to be consumed very fresh I assume, the best before date should have been a lot earlier than June 2017, as I can imagine this being a lot better when fresh, especially with other CREW Republic IPA’s in mind, which were considerably more gratifying. But even at this age, no IPA should carry such an amount of dead yeast, which due to autolysis has produced a sulfuric smell here which is not only off-putting as such, but also covers the remainders of the hops in the nose. Flavor-wise still pretty much okay though, juicy and drying at the same time, with a firm dosis of hops without becoming too harsh.
