(Häffner Bräu Hopfenstopfer Incredible Pale Ale) Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Beerhunter111, thanks! Served into a shaker at home, ABV 6.1% Ornge colour on the body, hazy, with intense activity in it. Big white soapy head on top, with very good retention. Aroma of light citrus, grapefruit, oranges. Taste has some dry grass, then citrus, oranges, tangerine, grapefruit, very refreshing. Medium thin body carbonation is a bit high. Good!

Rigtig fin IPA. Der er god balance mellem humlebitterheden og sødmen. I eftersmagen er der blomster og sødlige noter

Schlumpfhunter (193) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2015
Schaum: gar keiner! Hm Glas gewechselt: kurz aufgeschäumt dann wieder nix. Farbe: trübes dunkelgelb, sieht aus wie Urin wenn man zu wenig getrunken hat :-) Nase: Zitrone, weiße Traube und eine süße Note ()dazu. Gut, pale ale halt. Geschmack: whoa, ziemlich derb und kräftig! Die Gerste kommt ziemlich durch. Muss man sich erst ein paar Schlucke dran gewöhnen. Auf der Zunge feinperlig, der fehlende Schaum täuscht also. Nachgeschmack: angenehm, nicht bitter, sondern eher säuerlich, wie der Duft. Aber auch eine recht derber breiter holziger Geschmack dabei. Argh der Nachgeschmack bleibt ziemlich unangenehm hängen wenn man danach nichts anderes zu sich nimmt. Insgesamt eher nichts zum Essen dazu, aber zum alleine Trinken, gut, wenn man mal ein kräftiges IPA mag. Weniger mein Favorit.

asheft (3093) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2015
[bottle from Heidelberg] Tropical fruit candy aroma in front of light Pilsner malt. Hazy gold under a persistent, lacy, rocky, white meringue. Flavour is sweet Pilsner malt quickly followed by pineapple and lime-passion fruit with a low bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body, medium high carbonation, midway between crisp and smooth.

Salwal (486) - GERMANY - SEP 20, 2015
From the bottle, pours hazy orange with thick white head. Nose of citrus and citric dish soap. Floral but not to fruity. Taste is astringent hops in the foreground mainly citric and grassy. Some lacing and good hoppy finish. Qiute decent ipa...

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ze srednia pianka ale dosc trwala. Kolor zloto pomaranczowy, metny. Zapach cytrusowy, zwlaszcza cytryny i limonki. W smaku cytrusy ale dodatkowo wyczulem ananasawa slodycz i kwaskowy miazsz kimi. Poteznie goryczkowe ze slodowoscia umiarkowana. Bardzo smaczne i wytrawne piwo. Choc zakonczenie mialo delikatne nie przyciezkawe to wyczuwalo sie dlugo goryczkowa budowe tego piwa. Polecam

bartlebier (4032) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 33cl bottles, several batches sampled from its introduction to batch bb12/2015. This early-adopted German IPA was once a gateway beer to exotic floral goodness coming from an unassuming Kellerbier-derived style, succesfully pairing earthy Hallertaus with sprinkles of citrus-forward US hops. (Not sure when more mellow Nelson Sauvin was introduced to the recipe...). The aroma is still lovely, whereas comparing it now with ubiquitous European IPAs from Portugal to Slovakia, the thin and fizzy pilsner/crystal body is what first marks its age. The focused monopurpose Citra Ale does a better job of imparting pillowy, sweet ale qualities than this fair enough vehicle for mixed dryhopping on a rather simplistic Germanic malt base. // Rerate 2017-V: fresh batches, still old amateurish labels, sameish recipe, from a 0711 REWE. - At €1,39, the honest entry-level APA (masking as IPA) to beat, offering a fresh dose of US-hoppiness and citrus bitters on a simple, sessionable malt base. Clean, to the point, 50% German hopped - something of an early adopter DE-IPA, still standing strong. Marking this up for affordability at a point where all DE-homebrew is entry-marketed at €2,90 nowadays.
