Not sure where my final score will end up with this one; Mikkeller’s given us an odd IPA here, and I’m curious as to how it will evolve as it warms. Biscuity, yeasty nose with some lemon and caramel underneath, not all that promising for a DIPA. Looks amazing though, a hazed gold with ample white foam and massive lacing. Taste never quite hits the Citra sweet spot you want; herbal-vegetal hops form a base, while the tropical-citrus notes settle atop caramel and biscuit malts. Grows increasingly sweet as it warms--a good thing, since it takes away from the unexpected savory streak upsetting the hop-malt balance--yet still has a strange, bouillon-esque undercurrent that kinda kills my enthusiasm. Hides its alcohol well, which makes me curious how old this bottle might be. When I started this pint it was a 3.7. Time does it no favors.

Fules (1189) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 17, 2017
Közepes, tartós hab, narancssárga szín. Markáns citrusos, grapefruitos, déligyümölcsös, citrushéjas illat. Citrusos, déligyümölcsös, enyhén gyantás ízvilág. Testes, erősen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Gazdag ízvilágú, jól összerakott, szuper IPA.

Hazy dark orange pour. Wiffs of weed and tropical fruits. Not a flavour monster, but well put together and drinkable. Probably doesn’t need to be 9% though, considering the flavour/abv pay off.

PabloZab (1519) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 30, 2017
Can 330ml (BB 15.11.2017). Hazy golden colour with, big white head, great lacing. Aroma is really fresh with tropical fruits notes at the beginning and next with biscuit, malty body. Semi sweet, malty with medium to high, resin, citrus bitterness, intense, a bit astringent, agressive but in good way. Beer is good balanced, without booze, medium to full body but fresh and drinkable, dangerously drinkable. Really good, tasty IIPA.

ATulloch (303) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2017
Can from Westhill service station. Pours a murky orange with a lively head that slowly fades down leaving nice lacing. Aromas of juicy oranges, mango, passion fruit, pineapple and pine needles. Flavour is orange marmalade, peach melba and bitter sweet citrus. You get a lovely pine linger. Solid.

SebBrews (168) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 4, 2017
Semi-hazy amber with foamy off-white had that diminishes quickly. Nose is moderately intense pine resin, mango, papaya and some cat piss. Taste is bittersweet upfront, then evolves to moderately sweet in the aftertaste. Pine, mango, peaches, some pale malts. Medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth and sessionable, despite the ABV. Pours hazy golden with small white sticky head. Aroma: hoppy, citrus, grass, pine, nice maltyness also, cat piss, pine. Taste: sweet at first and then coming medium bitterness, pine, citrus, apricot puree, peaches,resin ,grapefuit. Medium plus body. Grapefruit bitter finish. Nice one.
