Lowenbrau (4752) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 21, 2016
33cl bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 17-05-2015.

BBD: 02-12-2016.

In short: Fruity IIPA.

Pours murky dark gold with nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Fruity, watermellon, berries nose. Medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitter, fruity, dry aftertaste.

Bottle. Teku. Orange, medium hazy with medium, semi-thick, white head. Moderate head retention and lacing. Aroma is moderately peachy, herbal with earthy and cheese notes. In the background lightly piney aromas. Like in every beer from this series, there are moderate caramel and candy notes. But here are not so noticeable like in the others. I think it’s due to the different character of hops added. Taste is medium bitter, generally thru the whole of degustation, broken by some nice semi-sweet malts, which makes it nicely balanced. Medium body, semi-thick and creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter and semi-dry. In general another good interpretation of style with different hops. This one is the least malty from all of this series I’ve been tasted. But still well balanced and highly drinkable.

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 16, 2016
Alaranjado opaco, média turbidez ao servir o fermento residual, espuma bege de boa formação e persistência ainda mais considerando a proximidade à validade. Aroma caramelado e abacaxi bastante maduro, em menor intensidade pinho e fermento. No paladar o amargor e dulçor em intensidade média e bastante próximos. Corpo médio/denso e média carbonatação. Final de média persistência focado no caramelo lupulado mas com uma sensação de cerveja velha, gostaria de beber fresca novamente.

heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 30, 2016
A 0.33 l bottle, thanks Marko and the Pulfer staff for a sample! It poured a hazy deep golden body with medium sized head. Strong, sweet malty aroma with stale mint and grassy hop note which was unusual and new to me, obviously Polaris. Flavor was more or less the same, although less intense, spicy mint with dusty, stale notes alongside sweetish biscuit and fruity malt. Full bodied, smooth, with long, sweetish finish with light bitterness. Interesting, although this hop varietal is not really my cup of tea.

Marko (6182) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 28, 2016
Huge thanks to the Pulfer people! Murky amber body with a big white head. Sweet aroma, slightly stale peach notes, dusty, underwhelming and too malty. Sweetish taste,dusty again, lovely, just lovely peach and apricot notes, no bitterness really. Don’t know... not the freshest I guess and definitely not my type of IIPA.
