Werckmeister (3328) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2016
0,5l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks. Sticker from the importer says BB 30/06/2016. BB from the brewery (tiny stamp on the bottle neck) says 03/02/2016. amber quite hazy color, small white head. smells of pines, sweetness, some sweet herbs, citric notes, exotic fruits. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, some lemon grass, also rather watery, no pines, bit of resin. lightly bitter with notes of resin and some citric notes. lovely smell, but taste is way too simple. bit of a cheat really that the bottle has two bb-dates.

Saeglopur (2326) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2016
500 ml bottle from BeerLovers Vienna, bb 03/02/2016.
Amber-orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of biscuit, orange, citrus, pine, some lychee and some more tropical fruits.
Tastes of pine, citrus, orange, some passion fruit, biscuit, some honey.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, piney, zesty, a bit alcohol warming, fruity, a bit sweet malty.

Very nice. Not so fresh anymore, but still with some nice piney notes and subtle tropical fruits. Alcohol is noticeable, but drinks quite smooth, with a very good balance. Enjoyable DIPA, but this is propably much better when fresh.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle. A bit lively on opening. Lovely orange appearance. Fruitiness and hops hit you instantly then bitterness creeps in. An in your face, unsubtle double IPA that is quite lovely.

2.5
minutemat (6045) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
500ml bottle, from the Wine Seller, Wolverhampton, courtesy of Simon F. Pours hazy orange with good white head. Aroma is tropical fruit. Taste brings quite a savage bitter hop bite with some sweet exotic fruit coming through. A bit overly hopped and overly bitter for my delicate tastebuds.

3.9
fkoolen (1335) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
500ml bottle at home, beautiful design. Equally beautiful medium cloudy, golden colour, stable, creamy offwhite head. Nicely hoppy nose with citrus fruits, orange zest, spruce. Taste is orange zesty and resinous, firm, sweet and creamy malty base. Bitterness builds, big-time, in the aftertaste. Big body, medium carbonation.

3.7
sjogro (4735) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle at THT. Lekker zacht maar toch stevig brandnetel bitter patjakkertje. Backlog from 2015/11/27.
