Malzbetonter Hopfenantrunk. Starke passende Süße, steigender Hopfen. Vollmundig, blumig-bitter, die Süße ist in Teilen einen Ticken zu stark. Das Bier ist ziemlich süffig, nur im Abgang kommt kurz eine stechende Alkoholnote auf. 8/11/12/11/8/12

0.75l bottle kindly provided by StoreMy and shared with The Tasting Crew + friends. This one pours a heavy clouded almost murky amber-brown body with a small bubbly and heavy lacing just off-white head. The aroma is malty and sweet, also light herbal and heather hints, but also lots of caramel and a nice citrus touch. Soft carbonation levels and a light sticky to slick mouthfeel. Also quite malt and caramel sweet in the flavors. Licorice and almost something that reminds me of leather. Ends bitter. Quite bitter actually - almost stingy. And fruity! Red berries in the finish. Yeah, this was quite good actually. Yey to moor of this! Foffern (2044) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2011
Light amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of soap, floral and parfumy hops, sweet malt, grapefruit, and hints of alcohol. The hops dominates in the mouth with some grain, leather, biscuits (?). Hint of alcohol. Heavy round bitterness with long duration. Medium mouthful and slick. A not very typical english ale, but a decent powerful ale. ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of StoreMy, shared @ tasting with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew feat. Foffern, StoreMy and the local media! :-) Pours a deep, dark orange hazy body with a small white head. Nose is nutty honey tones, caramel, melon, grass and hints of molasses. Taste is fuzzy, grassy hop tones, honey, caramel, beeswax and hints of grass. Long, bitter aftertaste. Damn, this is one fine beer from Britain, and its refreshing to taste a DIPA in a different tradition than the American. Like to see more of those.

Appena stappata si presenta il citrico, sembra di trovarsi innanzi ad una limonata, dopo il primo impatto compaiono i luppoli e comincia il grande piacere.
Di colore lievemente ambrato con schiuma media, ripropone in bocca il citrico mescolato con una sapiente luppolatura che la rendono decisamente piacevole. fjw1972 (12) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2011
One of my all time favourite beers. Massive hops but superbly balanced, even at a whopping 9.5%abv. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2011
Draught at Pikkulintu 0.4L 18.11.2009. Mild nose. Pale beige head. Hazy slightly reddish amber colour. Slightly sweet more than average hopped taste. Fullfilled and warming. Some grapefruit in the taste. At the end hoppy bitterness. tiong (7739) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Originally rated on 22.4.2010. Hoppy, malty and bitter IPA. Okay. fiulijn (21507) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Hazy amber color with red shades; small head. Good malty aroma, with a cheesy/yeasty head, and some fruits. Strong body, round, sweet caramel/toffee, fruity hops; but the yeast character quite clashes with the American IPA.
