MoritzF (10129) - Ottobrunn, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Bready toast-malty aroma with caramel, peppery spice and delicately fruity hoppy notes. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Hearty toasted malt character with notes of bread crusts, caramel on a delicately fruity hoppy background; bitter-sweet toasty malty finish with a rising hops profile towards the aftertaste, containing mildly fruity and spicy notes. Heavily malty IPA, reminding me more of a dark Bock, nevertheless a likeable brew. 20.X.12

(bottle) murky greyish amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of canned peaches and dried apricots, with some notes of manure, dusty malts and ethanol. flavour is mostly herbal hops and sugar icing, slightly phenolic, with a hint of grape skins, lots of caramel and a light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

sjogro (4840) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle shared at Maakuns courtesy of Puttetjes. Thanks. Clear amber with white head. Sweet malts, sweaty sock, caramel, sweet tea. Quite sweet and light bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation. This is not so good anymore.

Maakun (6543) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to Puttetjes for the bottle! Almost clear dark golden with cream colored head. Tea, peach, sugar, light malts, caramel, lime, cardboard. Medium sweet, bitter and bodied. OK this is not fresh but it's more then half a year before the best before date and it's seriously not good.

330ml bottle generously sent by Geiserich as a part of European local swap, many thanks.

Caramel and a bit of tired herbal hoppy scents. Taste is sweet with a blunt and longer lasting old hops bitterness

corkyrory66 (2266) - BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2017
Ipa de 6,4 % abv et 56 ebu, houblonnée en hallertau tradition, simcoe, citra et cascade.
Les houblons sont en version organique. Mon exemplaire était à quelques jours après sa date.
Couleur ambré moyen, à la clarté nette.
Bulles fines, partout, vives.
Mousse beige clair, soyeuse, épaisse, stable à 5 mm.
Arômes de malt grillé très fin, lichee, vin jaune.
1ère bouche très souple, à la très belle entame fruits exotiques/tabac blond/vin jaune.
Arrière-bouche très élégante, recherchée.
2ème aux superbes nuances fruitées sur un très beau malt.
Arrière-bouche longue, complexe.
3ème aux touches fines et à l’équilibre complet.
Arrière-bouche aux grandes nuances vin blanc moelleux, raisin, fruit.
Longueur de pure splendeur (gustative et olfactive).
Jambes huileuses, longues.
Levure très fine, vineuse, très grande ligne.
Alcool parfait et paraissant un peu plus que son niveau, il articule la longueur sur un axe prodigieux.
Finale encore plus grande que la longueur.
CONCLUSION : je suis très content de savoir qu’il y a des îles Nicobar dans l’océan indien, et qu’elles ont fait partie d’un trafic du plus pur style des ipa au temps de Marie-Thérèse, mais je suis
encore plus content de découvrir cette ipa, non pas dans l’océan indien, mais dans mon verre ..
Et je peux vous assurer qu’il y était très bien Nico ...

Ysok02 (1865) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2017
Une IPA à la robe dorée, fine mousse. Nez surtout marqué par les épices et les notes dagrumes, sur un fond houblonné. Bouche à lattaque épicée, milieu de bouche assez rond, finale amère et épicée. Une bière qui souffre un peu la comparaison avec les précédentes.

Kampfar (287) - Osnabrück, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2017
From 0,33 L bottle; pours cloudy, orange to light-brown coloured with a white head. Aroma is heavy hoppy and fruity with citrus, grapefruit, also resin and some malts. Taste is resiny, less fruity than the aroma. Medium bitterness, slightly sweet in the finish. Average carbonation, medium body. Nice one, which is on the resiny hand.

Wendigo (702) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2017
0.33l bottle. Hopy aroma, citrus notes, light resin. Hazy orange color, white head. Hopy aroma, light floral notes, light citruses, resin, light sour, light to medium bitter. Light body, slick to watery texture, soft carbonation and light bitter finish. Average.
