Shows a creamy lightly beige frothy head and a solid sunset orange copper colour. On the nose you notice aromas of grapefruit, lemon, citron, litschi, black currant, floral fresh grass and hop notes. A light livelyness offers a light slick texture with a medium body. Lightly bitter at first which develops a certain sweetness showing a caramel note which keeps the the strong bitterness building up at bay. The finish is citrony dry yet leaves a pleasant fruity aftertaste on the palate for while.

[email protected] Been a while since I drank this but had it quite a few times. Just had to rate it because the new IPA brewed at Vormann is so much better (brewed, balanced). Same kind of hops but very unclean and too yeasty.

(33 cl bottle from WeinKultur Moabit; This is 15,4 P with Pilsner-, Münchner-, Karamellmaltz, Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade 45 IBU and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Brewed at Vormann Brauerei. BBD: September 30th 2013) Pours a semi-clear amber with plenty of carbonation and rich, two-finger white head that laces the glass and stays around. Aroma is fresh, herbal hoppy with simcoe pine notes sticking through. Oily texture, medium body perhaps a bit on the light side with a very sessionable balance of gentle upfront bitterness quickly played down by an equally gentle, neutralising sweetness. Taste has even more Simcoe and the citrus notes of the Cascade and Amarillo present a nicely complementary background. This will certainly be good inspiration for when I want to make my own Simcoe/fruity hop-brew. This is a good candidate for the best German IPA right now.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle at Home. Hazy golden orange color, with a nice rich white head that lasts. Strong grassy and citrus hoppy aroma. Nice. Flavour is flowery and very fruity. Excellent bitter and dry finish. I really enjoyed this one and a great variation of your typical german beers. Keep up the great work Fritz !!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2012
Pours reddish golden with minimal head. Sweet, fruity hop aroma - very powerful hop flavour. Without a doubt the most hoppy and bitter German beer I’ve tried - and it’s good. Some yeasty dregs left and a bit of a funky aftertaste are the only drawbacks here.

aleigator (945) - GERMANY - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Warm amber-yellow color, with a decent head, which leaves a thin lacing. Warm fruity aromas of mango, kiwi, grapefruit and orange - very great. Slick fruity mouthfeel, defined by grapefruit, peach, mango, pine, and bready malts. Malt keeps the bitterness in line, both blend well together. Still, this is a very hoppy beer. Carbonation supports it perfect, adds freshness to the fruits with hints of copper, giving the ale more depth. Hops are present from the beginning to the end, get mingled with malt and leave a decent, short bitter aftertaste. Even malt is well recognizable, and adds warmth to the beer, its not as present as the hops are. Interestingly enough those tend to be more fruity, lovely than just bitter, which turns out great.

HoppyBudgie (940) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
33 cl bottle from Berlin Beer shop. Grapefruity mango, nothing too intense. Same with bitterness, good bitterness but not too hard. Not too intense. Pretty drinkable IPA.

Holy (897) - GERMANY - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Fritz - huge thanks! It’s so refreshing to see a German IPA hit the streets - and the fact that it’s good just pushes it further in the right direction. Had this beer last year at BBF 2010 (courtesy of Fritz again), but it was un-commercialized at the time - now with a nice label! Very fresh hops, color, mouth feel. This is a great IPA!

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 6, 2011
Wein Kultur, Berlin. Többek közt ezért a sörért kerestem fel ezt a helyet, és teljesen megérte. Sűrű, szinte átláthatatlan narancssárgás színe van, és rengeteg tömör és krémes, kissé sárgás habja, amiben bizony jó sokáig gyönyörködhetünk. Illata malátás, és elképesztően komlósan gyümölcsös: talán a baracklekvár a legerősebb aroma, de mangó, narancs és más trópusi gyümölcsök is kivehetőek. Szinte gyümölcsösebb illata van, mint egy gyümölcsnek magának, de éppen ezért kissé egysíkú is. Íze ehhez hasonló, keserű, a gyümölcsös komló uralta erőteljes ízvilág, jó hosszan tartó gyümölcsös és száraz utóízzel. Egészen testesnek hat, pedig a 15,5°az nem is olyan sok, hozzá jó száraz és keserű, de nem az a könnyen iható fajta. Összességében egy kiváló IPA, és hát bizony ilyet is tudnak a németek.
