This was my favorite IPA at Hopfest in Seattle at the Browers bar. It was a week long festival and i think the blue dot keg was kicked the first day

Aroma is passionfruit, grapefruit, and lemongrass . Taste is light grains which are consumed by flour, fresh and both bitter and earthy hop notes. Appearance is a lightly hazy hold with a thin pearl head that retains well.

Zeer vol en romig, mooie knapperige hop, niet te bitter. Heel veel gist als body, daar hou ik van. Heel veel in n glas. Koppig, gedroogd fruit, rond, romig. Top voor een bier binnen het genre dat niet mijn favoriete stijl is.

Keg @ HotD. Gold pour with a modest white head. Nose has some nice herbal hop character. A touch of pine. Light peppery spiciness. Similar flavor. Restrained, crisp malt. Spicy, floral bitterness. A bit oily. Fine carb. Good.

Habanero (4582) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, alcohol and a little pine. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Sampled at ACBF 2017, Vichte. Semi-hazy golden pour with a fine-grained off-white head. Notes of tropical hops, passion fruit, citrus, perfumey hops, caramel and a bit of honey. Really well-balanced, a pleasure to drink.
