Alebarasi (179) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - MAY 26, 2017
Rich, light hazy yellow/gold color (with light green hue) and large frothy head. Medium body, light carbonation, fair lacing. Aroma of oranges, pineapple, melon, passion fruit, pine, mango, pear, resins and subtle malts. Powerful, clean and fruity taste with a sturdy pine hop finish. Notable citrus, passion/tropical fruit, mango, apricot, biscuit and malt notes. Oily mouthfeel. Fresh, but properly bitter aftertaste. Together with Jaipur, my top 2 Thornbridge brews.

kaserov (1108) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2017
Color amarillo, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (poca retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa. Aroma cítrico y resinoso, ligeramente alcohólico. Suave. Sabor cítrico, resinoso, con algo de alcohol al final, sobre todo a medida que va calentando. Amargor medio de poca duración. IPA más que DIPA. Y muy normalita.

MissIPA (1) - BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - APR 28, 2017 does not count
This must be the best IPA I have tried so far. It kicks in immediately, beautiful strong bitterness all the way, with citrus hop aroma, refreshing, enchanting, impressive

Erg licht en helder. Vrij weinig geur. Erg bitter, wel goed op dit moment. Lekker.

3.7
jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 10, 2017
Amarillenta turbia de espuma blanca, densa. Aspecto de witbier. Lúpulo en el aroma, resinoso, herbal. Bien de gas, amargor intenso en boca, desde el principio y sobre todo al final, muy seco. Cítrica, pomelo marcado, notas de uva y algo de fruta tropical. Realmente seca y realmente amarga. como cabe esperar de una Imperial IPA.
