GoufCustom (1701) - HONG KONG - SEP 10, 2016


330ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Cloudy hazy orange honey colour with a very thin ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet full Ale malt, with pineapples, passion fruits, grapefruits, alcohol, strong floral nectar, light pine, resins, yeast and lemon peels.

Taste: Close to medium sweet full Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, candied fruits, light pineapples, floral, alcohol, light molasses, pine, resins, spices, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lime, quite strong bitter hops and fresh grass.

Body: Full body. Oily and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full Ale maltyness in a pretty viscous background. Hops taste is strong but not burning, instead there are some good soft citrus and tropical fruityness to the tongue. Pine and ooze are obvious but not that strong, Sweetness is surprisingly light for the style. Dry biscuit with strong lime to round. Very easy and comfy!

Booze: the 10% abv is very well hidden in taste despite the strong aroma. No train wreck throughout. Excellent!

Hoppiness: Pineapples, passion fruits, grapefruits, floral nectar, light pine, resins, lemon peels in nose. Strong grapefruits, candied fruits, floral, pine, resins, spices, strong lime, and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is mid to strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Oozy, hoppy and nicely bitter to mouth.

Comments: I cant help but to compare this one with To ls Dangerously Close to Stupid, and this one is just as hopped-up but more like a nicer, tamer litter brother. Good tropical and citrus fruity hops fused into the strong malt base, with aroma being more mellow and all taste factors malt sweetness, hops and booze - are nice and smooth. A very easygoing DIPA. Nice one!

Rating #1181, flaske fra Marius i Nykbing Falster

Tget, gul l med flot luftigt skum med god holdbarhed. Duft af masser af smr og citrus, samt lidt jordbr, men ikke s kompleks som ventet. Sd og meget humlet smag med masser af jordbr, hindbr, abrikos, hyben, citrus og naturligvis en kraftig bitterhed. Lkkert. Ret cremet og let fyldig.

33cl bottle at home. Somewhat hazy golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with nice fruity sweetness. Pine, malts, caramel, spices, mango, tangerine and some herbs. Good stuff.

330ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Pours hazy orangey amber, good white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, orangey, floral. Taste is pretty hoppy, orangey, lightly sticky but nicely balanced. Enjoyable DIPA that hides its strength well.

10%ABV. Imperial IPA. Poured out deep gold. 8SRM. Nose has sweet ripe tropical fruit aroma. Ripe pineapples. Sweet ripe Valencias. Candy in the nose as well. Soapy mouthfeel. Palate has toasty malty flavors good graham cracker, honey and toasted wheat. Hops are citrus peel, then herbaceously bitter, then flowery and perfume-like and the bitterness of fresh pine needles and pine sap and then flat bitter. Finish is hoppy, bitter and long. Goes on Favorites List!

ALIBALI (958) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2016
Zitat von meinem Kumpel Bommel "Also das ist ......das ist jetzt echt mein Lieblingsbier". Klar, warum. Der Name ist Programm. Eins vorweg, der Nachtrunk ist eine der intensivsten Erfahrungen die man beim Biertrinken machen kann. Mindblowing & Outstanding!!!!! Der Trunk kokettiert hufig mit einer slichen Einfltigkeit, die dann aber schnellstens wieder von einer suerlich hopfigen Dampfwalze geerdet wird. Das alles ist LANG,HEFTIG und voller extremsten Citrus/Hopfenattacken!!!! BIG!!!! 0,33l Flasche fr ca.6 Euo aus den MIKKELLER BOTTLE SHOP Kopenhagen.

likeatrainwreck (494) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Pours ever so slightly hazy gold with a big sticky head. Aroma and flavour is predominantly orange, pineapple... caramel malt... slight pine...assertive bitterness. Surprisingly not too sweet for a 10% beer. Drinks like a 7% IPA. Good stuff.

Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is big citrus, slight bread, slight unripened pineapple. Taste is citrus, slight pineapple, caramel, huge hop kick, long dry finish. A real hop bomb of a beer.
