Glouglouburp's rating

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 23, 2013
In short: A muddy yeasty fruity amber IPA lacking in many departments. Lame.
How: Bottle 330ml, from a new batch that landed in Vermont and consumed a few days after it hit the shelves, however fresh a Mikkeller IPA can be in Vermont.
The look: Muddy amber body topped by a medium beige head with mediu retention.
In long: Nose is phenolic, some tropical fruits, other yeasty fruit esters, quite a bit soapy and even perfumy (rose water). This is far from what Ive been used from Citra IPAs that are legions in North-America. Taste is far from clean and crisp. Very yeasty and with grainy toasted cereals, like croutons in a yeast soup. Fruity flavors are like breakfast juice made from extract of citrus fruits and apples. Some resin, green plants, a medicine round-up the flavor spectrum. Full body but strangely lacking malt presence, just a thick yeasty body with the sweetness feeling more like fruit concentrate than usual cereals sweetness. An overall lack of freshness in the character of the beer although this batch being was freshly delivered. Mild bitterness with a finish that adds lemony citric notes. Medium carbonation and muddy mouthfeel. Very lame, I hope this was a bad batch, Im rarely disappointed by a Mikkeller beer like I was by this one. Just another beer rating for me, my 5000+ ratings are my main accomplishment in my life, I feel like my contribution to this world we live in is as remarkable as the contribution of the letter w in the word answer.

from Drinks of the World, Basel - hazy golden-amber beer with a little foam left; the hoppiness is more herbal and piney than fruity; a solid malt backbone; bitter and long citrusy and piney finish - clean

Can thanks to Davey. It pours orange - amber with a small white head. The aroma is fresh, fruity, juicy orange, apricot, persimmon, nectarine and sherbet. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter, orange peel, light sugar, apricot, peach, nectarine, persimmon and a touch of booze on the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty fruity. Not bad.

Piwo metne w kolorze ciemny bursztyn z obfita srednio pecherzykowa piana. W aromacie owoce cytrusowe, ananas i zywica. W smaku wysycenie i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Polslodkie z nutami karmelu, mocno zbozowe. Ogolnie niezbyt intensywna i przecietna IPA.

Tide (3331) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Draught at WilliamK Kurvi. Amber color, full white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, pine, metallic aroma, a bit of mango and grass. Not much fruit nor other aromas as you can expect with citra. Bitter finish with grapefruit, hops, pine, metallic aroma and a bit of mango. Good IPA, but rather one dimensional with only the citra bitterness.

33cl bottle shared at Level 42. Many thanks to Dave for this one. It pours a hazed apricot color with a large off white head. Aroma is zesty and lightly fruity with notes of apricots. Taste is sweet and plasticky estery with notes of lemon apricots and bitter grass. Medium bodied with very lively carbonation. Overall, not good
