Vells (1938) - Rīga, LATVIA - NOV 8, 2017
Lovely maltiness, nice hop combo gives pine, citrus, mango kick. Light sweet with moderate bitterness. Nice.

gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2017
Bottle from my secret summer santa 2017. Pours hazy deep golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of piney and citrussy hops, marmelade. Taste is moderate bitter marmelade, light sticky mouthfeel, decent and moreish IPA.

Ritzn (1808) - GERMANY - OCT 1, 2017
Amber with little white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange zest, bready malt. Taste is sweet malt juice with lots of hop oils and some bitter alcoholicness. Quite drinkable though. Not bad.

jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy orange amber, low offwhite head. Peach and mango hop nose. Medium full, sticky body, low carbonation. Resiny on the palate, sticky caramelized tropical fruit. No relief from the hop oils.

3.4
SinH4 (6259) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with white head. Aroma is floral, mango, juicy fruits. Taste is the same, with some very herbal hops and a bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A bit overdone in its bitterness, but solid.

3.5
biir (1596) - Berlin, - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle bought online - slightly hazy golden color, little gusher, so with a huge head. very nice westcoat ipa, carbo a bit too high, which makes the body a bit edgy. still nice fruity with a decent bitter finish, all on a high level. great.

3.6
Erzengel (9497) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2017
Sweetish floral beginning. Intense sticky herbal fruity. Lots of floralness, intense floral with lots of malty sweetness. The aftertaste is herbal with a sweetish but intense floral herbal hop oily aroma. Fascinating, but too sweetish for me.

3.3
olszam (24) - Köln, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2017
Ciemno bursztynowy kolor. W zapachu bardzo swieze cytrusy, marakuja, grejfrut, lekko jablkowe. Smak, lekka bardzo przyjemna goryczka, malo wysycone, przyjemnie orzezwiajace, ale poza tym troche puste w smaku. Slabo utrzymujaca sie piana. Przyjemne bardzo piwo w zapachu, ale brakuje mu troche ciala.

4.1
LeoN_ (57) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2017
Schöne bernsteinfarbe. Zunehmend mehr Eintrübung. Weniger, grobporiger schaum. Aroma: Pfirsich, Apfel(!), aber auch was malziges(!). Aber alles dezent, keine ipa typische Fruchtexplosion (kann ja auch gerne mal nach hinten losgehen). Milder antrunk, cremiger körper. Sehr hopfig herber Abgang. Säuerlicher Nachgeschmack.

3.7
pivnizub (10811) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - APR 23, 2017
Bottle: Golden, cloudy, small and rather quickly diminishing loose white head; citric and mainly piney hops plus a good dash of sweet malt in the robust bitter-sweet nose; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and really soft; long and lingering - with hops sticking to the palate in the aftertaste - solid bitter-sweet piney-malty finish with traces of warming alcohol.Very well crafted and well drinkable Indisches Bleich-Ale...
