(Draught at Hopfenreich, Berlin, 25 Aug 2017) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit and pineapple. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon and a generous citric bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and refreshing, with a fresh hop character. Nice one. DevinFiachra () - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
In my opinion this is the definitive German take on the New England IPA. Too many have tried and failed with their iterations of this style.
The colour is between orange/grapefruit rind. The body is voluptuous, full, and hazy like tropical juice. The head is compact with small/medium bubbles.
The aroma leaps from the glass and evokes notes of peach/apricot flesh, passionfruit, freshly cut grass and fresh squeezed orange juice.
The taste is sweet and fruity. Again confirming the nose.
The carbonation is low which gives the beer an almost chewy character. The finish is abrupt and characterised by a gentle bitterness.
Overall a fantastic beer and one of my favourites of 2017. Theydon_Bois (21466) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017

Tastep comprises orange pith, light dank notes, bread dough, citric tinged straw, cantaloupe melon, light pine tingle.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with juicy hop bitterness.
Decent enough IPA ... but not at the price point here in Englands Bunder. Rask0lnikov (1575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 18, 2017

Tap (BrewDog, Tallinn) (7:3:6-:4:13=3.3-) Serapac (564) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 4, 2017
Lovely juicy fruity hop aroma, tropical fruit, passion fruit. Hazy orange, brief tight head settles to a ring. Sickly sweet porridgy rice pudding malty taste. Fairly fatty bitter hopping coats the tongue. Medium palate, sweet slickness doesn't restrain the prickly carbonation. Finish tingles with biting bitter hop resins for a very long time. Finish is very walnutty, dry, and bitter. Kinda nose-dived after the aroma, but the finish at least leaves me not negative about it. Influenced by NEIPAs? Those *cloudy* things with *no bitterness*?!? Shut the door. Way more West Coast than NE - fact.
