Erzengel (8769) - Wuppertal, - NOV 21, 2012
Vielen Dank an Sean! Dieses dunkel-bernsteinfarbene IPA ist mit fünf verschiedenen (und leider nicht benannten) Amerikanischem Hopfen aus dem Yakima-Valley in Washington-State veredelt worden. Sehr schön grasig-malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist hopfenintensiv, toll grasig und harmoniert interessant mit der spannenden Malznote des Körpers. Zum Hauptteil hin baut sich diese Paarung noch weiter aus, es entstehen leichte Kaffee-Gras Aromen, Röstmalz ist vorhanden, wird aber von den Hopfentönen deutlich überlagert. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr angenehm extrem hopfig, aber nicht zu sehr (so dass man noch Aromen schmecken kann), und sehr lang anhaltend. Total trocken. Dafür frisch und süffig. Tolles Bier!

Borresteijn (7174) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2017
On tap at Werfpop, Leiden. Turns out to be a tick! Clear deep amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, mostly grapefruit, some burnt caramel, hint of toast. Flavour is very watery, light malty, toast, some grapefruit but all very light. Light bodied. Liked the M&S version a lot better.

Onesimus (86) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Chestnut red half finger light tan head with a rapid evanescence and there isn't any obvious effervescence in the body. Nose is a sweet fruity character like midget gems, light red fruits, cranberry and thin sherry. Mouthfeel followed the appearance, watery and almost flat. The palate didn't follow the nose it has a slightly sour mix of cranberry and lime peel, sometime after there's a slight but lasting acerbic finish.

Thanks Riba! Clear amber-red. Malty aroma, light herbal touches. Light fruity perfumey, bit grainy. Too light. Meh. Okay. Soulless.
