erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2013
Copper, mostly clean body with small frothy head. Decent hop aromas, somewhat sweet malt base, forest smells and sweet sugar. Some alcohol shining through too. Pretty sweet base and just enough hops to make it work as IPA. Body is a bit cloying with all this alcohol and quite (filtered?) clean body. Alcohol warmth. Bit of an English IPA on steroids. Tasty though, but too alcoholic to be super drinkable. I like my IPA more rough. (33cl bottle from Wasana’s Getränken Oase) Bragesnak (5393) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2013
