The smell and the attack are one of a very strong american style IPA, but after that absolutely nothing happens. Nothing sits in the mouth and nothing happens when swallowing.

Ipa un poco carente de las caracteristicas tipicas poco amargor ni un regusto persistente. De toques citricos y algo a tomates amargos, con un poco de acido final pero muy suave. De poca espuma dorada y aspecto agradable con poca turbidez y un color anaranjado pardo intenso. No es una mala cerveza y buen acercamiento para paladares poco exigentes en ipas

Moravius (1278) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 21, 2017
Dose (33 cl) von April Gourmet, Peking. - Kastanienbraun, klar. - In der Nase angenehm herber IPA-Hopfen, etwas Tabak, ohne die angekündigte „weiche tropische Frucht“. - Im Antrunk wuchtiger tabakartiger, krautig-herber und mentholkühler US-Hopfen. Darunter strenge Malzbittere, die immer härter wird und in einen beinahe schmerzhaft holzig-bitteren Abgang mündet. Schlank, ohne Malzsüße. - Von harter Hopfenbittere dominiertes IPA ohne die schmeichelnd fruchtigen Noten anderer IPAs. Nicht so recht mein Fall.

GemmeDeReve (90) - FRANCE - MAR 13, 2017
Bière rousse sans mousse, avec un nez de litchi et d’amertume très intéressant, légèrement pétillante, une amertume vient en premier, faisant revenir ce goût de litchi, mais qui disparaît finalement en laissant le palais un peu sec par la suite, une bonne bière qui ne donne pas son amertume sur le long terme, dommage, mais c’est une bière très prometteuse, pas étonnant qu’elle ait été médaille d’or 2014

Gangstergafje (1102) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2017
The beer looks delicious. It is very dark for an IPA. The colour is a very dark amber, almost brown, but with a beautiful red glow. The beer looks a bit hazy, but you can still see trough. On top of the beer a nice soft layer of off-white foam as formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, but a nice drape of foam remains. All in all, good looks, and a lovely (darker than usual) twist to most IPA’s. The smelll of the beer is good, very good. It is a true IPA. I smell a strong kick of hops. I smell rich piney, slightly resinous and a bit herbal hop aromas. It are clearly American hops, with rather high bitterness and nice acidity. Besides the nice aromatic hops, there are also clear malts. There is even a slight toasty touch to the malts, some caramel maybe. It is a lovely more bitter twist to the sweet and acidic hops. The two are in perfect balance and the malts enhance the hops nicely. Great. The taste of the beer is also good. There is a nice malty flavour, giving some sweets. This is covered by a nice bitterness, from the hop and a nice acidity, also by the hops. The flavors are in good balance. It is not as flaverfull as the smell. It is a bit more robust. The palate is nice. Nice medium body, high carbonation and nice smooth texture. The finish is nice, and contains some nice malts but also bitter hops. Very good beer.

Une superbe IPA, ça sent le litchi, fruité en bouche qui laisse place rapidement à une lourde amertume. Une belle longueur qui se balance entre amertume et fruits tropicaux.

It’s a cracker. Very drinkable without any overly flowery notes. Good alcohol level.
