Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

Koelschtrinker (20399) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 24, 2016
Wenig karbonisierter Antrunk. Leicht herb, würzige Noten, nass hopfig. Eher langweilig. 8/7/7/7//7

Une mousse crémeuse et compacte laisse une dentelle collante derrière elle lorsqu’elle se dissipe d’une bière voilée et dorée aux reflets orangés. Des flaveurs d’agrumes enrobés de beurre au caramel entachent un produit au potentiel intéressant, mais un peu trop "vieux", malheureusement. L’amertume est presque inexistante et la texture en bouche est souple. Je l’essaierais bien de nouveau, mais beaucoup plus fraîche, cela va de soi.

I have to say this is by far one of the best IPA I’ve ever tried. Clear golden pour with white head, aroma is fruity. Bitterness doesn’t last long.

8.5%ABV. Imperial IPA. Poured out Amber. 10ºSRM. Nose has tons of citrus, spice and fresh pine. May even be a little resinous tail on this thing that is just very very pleasant. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is well provisioned grain bill with thick sweet malty flavors suggesting honeyed Graham cracker toast, honeyed wheat toast and marmalade, especially with the nice tang of citrus, lemon to or orange peel coming quite nicely in the middle to tail end of all that sweet. Hops are spicy, bitter, minty and hyssop like. Finish is medium long with bitter and herbaceous flavors predominating. Very very good overall and a very pleasurable ride. Goes on Favorites List !

[8268-20160515] 330mL bottle. Mild fruity aroma has a green leafy floral note. Clear, orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter orange citrus wood flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Tasty. (8/3/8/4/16) 3.9

jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
2016-05-15. Crisp golden amber body with modest creamy off-white head. 3++ Aroma is hoppy, fruity, light malt undertones. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, moderate bitterness throughout, fruity hops, biscuity malt in the finish. Smooth average bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. 3+ Solid. Nice but the hop character is not quite has vibrant as I had hoped. 7/4/7/3/14-15 Bottle from Hamilton Beer and Wine, Hamilton, NZ.

Small of pineapple mango paypya and peach with sweet malts floral scent. A bit of lemongrass hey and a bit of spicy pepperiness. A crazy half Orange half yellow color with short white head that dies quick. Taste is crazy starting off with sweet malts with Orange juice and peel. A bit of peach coming through in the middle with a Juicey hop taste with sweet dry bitter finish that keeps your mouth watering for days. Medium to full sticky body with balanced carbonation coats tougue over and over again with each sip. The watering effect is awesome and the Juicey hop flavor never stops. Just wish the ABV was a bit higher for the price. Great IPA.
