COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

beer-yum (1614) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 13, 2017
Pine and malt aroma in a dirty orange brown pour. Hoppy balance is covered by a big toffeee caramel malt body which is sustained through the finish. Surprisingly easy to down - dangerously so. Probably better described as a TIPA though...

CurlyJoe (214) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2017
Cloudy orange with almost zero white head, lots of sediment. Big marmalade fruit aroma, citrus. Sweet taste, once again marmalade. Bitter fruit as you expect, however sweet fruit character is probably stronger than bitterness. Massive bitter hop hit, then smooths to allow lots of other hop flavour to come through. Booze is there, but not overpowering, compliments other flavours. Great beer for sipping, suprisingly refreshing. Sharp on the palate.

Svesse (8454) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, hoppy, slightly vinous nose with notes of treacle-toffee, resin, grapefruit, caramel, dried fruit, dates, pine needles, rye bread, some chocolate and liquorice. Malty, hoppy taste with resin, burnt rubber, toffee, dates, rye bread, chocolate, burnt sugar, orange peel, liquorice, tropical fruit and a slightly fiery finish with a generous resiny bitterness and a touch of alcohol. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit boozy and slightly unbalanced, but really tasty with a generous hop presence. Very nice.

eljebi (89) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Gruesa versión del estilo, casi un barley wine multigrano lupulado con ganas. Maltosa, entre dulce, cereales y madera en boca, con un amargor resinoso acompañado de aromas a mango, piña y cítricos. Me gusta, me entretiene, pero no sé en qué estilo encuadrarla!!

kaserov (587) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 25, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a mínima. Espesa en boca. Aroma a caramelo, mucha malta, ligeros cítricos (naranja, sobre todo) y tropicales (mango), así como resina. En boca es amarga prácticamente desde que toca tu lengua. Malta y cítricos se dan la mano pero ambos quedan rápidamente en un segundo plano debido a ese elevado amargor que continúa en postgusto. Seca. También se capta algo de alcohol, más en sabor que en aroma. Otra cerveza de Nøgne Ø a la cual no encuentro gracia alguna (y ya van dos de tres).

homeini (218) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Uzupełnienie z notatek. Pite z kranu w Piw Paw. Bardzo aromatyczne, ale ciężkie i troche za bardzo karmelowe. Piłem po pięćsetce z tego samego browaru, może dlatego nie zrobiło już takiego wrażenia.

Potężna goryczka skontrowana potężną słodowością. Sporo ciała. Bardziej american barley wine niż imperial ipa. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Tranquillity (2219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Bottled. Golden red hazy body, small off-white head. The aroma has pine, nuts, cognac, oak, vanilla. The taste is gentle with hints of tropical fruits. Plenty of oak and vanilla with a sweet finish.

Moebbels (787) - FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
An otherwise clear beer but it has a large amount of hop trub that floats around, no head. Nose is sweet with caramel and mild hop notes. This bottle has some age to it so the hop aromas have mellowed out. Thick, syrupy sweetness that gets balanced by a hefty hop bitterness. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Very full mouthefeel with good drinkability and low alcohol presense. Minimal carbonation. Well made and drinkable for such a heavy beer.
