@ Irreale, Madrid, Spain.
A: Hazy amber.
T: Hops, citrus, tropical fruits, resin. nilsas (4114) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2016Tobiasoe (72) - NORWAY - DEC 6, 2016
Golden amber under thick white head. Fair aroma intensity of tropical fruit, fresh pine needles and some dried fruit. Medium full body on palate with fresh attack, soft bitterness, solid fruity midpalate, and a finish that weaves well the sweetish dried fruit malt with weighted bitterness, which lingers on discreetly. Very good, balanced brew. teddybeer (3782) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 5, 2016

From tap at Gollem in Antwerp, shared by 77ships, thanks. Swedish DIPA with thickly lacing, dense, egg-white, moussy head and lightly hazy orange blonde robe with somewhat amberish hue. Aroma of orange juice, dried mango, green banana, biscuit, some lychee, strawberry, sweet white wine, cereals, flowers. Fruity onset with hints of mandarin, passion fruit and yellow kiwi, fizzy and even slightly ’stinging’ carbo, smooth and full body. Nice biscuity malt middle with a cereally aspect to it, leading to a long, aromatic hop finish, peppery and very grapefruity, with floral, light pine and some dried exotic fruit notes, supported by warming, gin-like alcohol. Very decent DIPA, recommendable as an introduction to the style I’d say, in being a bit stereotypical and less exuberant than many others in this style. 77ships (9774) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2016
Draft glass @ Gollem. Clear darker orange with creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Nose is mellow yeast, herbal pine resin, thick dried orange peel. Taste has barely any fruity characteristics, all bitter herbal pine resin & dried orange peel, quite bitter, bit too yeasty, dough dough, rahter malty, lingering bitter finish. This is a bit like many "exterme" USA IPA used to be 5 - 7 years ago. Interesting blast from the past, feels out of line, out of synch now. Body is orange peel. I prefer the currnet hop bomb DIPA’s but this is an interesting & solid throwback. This is actually apparently a pretty recent recipe. Desverger (11422) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2016
