Quack-Duck (9369) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2014
bottle from bierpost. Amber-golden with a creamy off-white head and a good hop aroma. Medium-bodied, malty base with grassy-citrusy hops. Not as packed with tropcial fruit as typical IPAs this one comes with German hops, which also deliver a good show here. All in all, a very enjoyable beer.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, oak, vanilla, hints of grass, slight yeast, bread in there, some orange. Taste is a mix of lemongrass, some bread, yeast, soapy and spicy notes, finishing bitter, dry. Pretty nice.

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
(bottle) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Herbal-spicy hoppy aroma with a whiff of grass and spruce, accompanied by mildly honey-ish malty notes. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with an almost creamy carbonation. Soft and mildly grainy malty base with a good dash of herbal and slightly grassy hops, lingering into the lasting bitter hoppy finish. Might be odd for the typical IPA devotees, tastes like a dry-hopped pale Bock, also Witzgall Landbier from Franconia comes to my mind. 25.VIII.14

TH28 (427) - - AUG 23, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy golden with a frothy white foam cap. Aroma is different from your typical IPA, leaning more floral, herbal, and spicy. Taste is bready malt that gives way to an earthy, grassy, and spicy hop flavor. Bitterness is crisp but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is light to medium with a crisp, moderate to high carbonation. Finishes very dry with a resinous feeling on the tongue and a lingering bitterness.

Idiosynkrasie (7222) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, yellow-ish orangey, golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and orange receives support by grassy, peppery-spicy hop notes from the Hallertauer. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, slightly sweet, juicy, fruity basis with notes of pineapple, orange, lemon, grassy, peppery-spicy hoppy overtones. It doesnt go without some irony to sit here in Germany, drooling over any supposably flavourful US IPA reachable in order to escape from the boring German pabulum, finding oneself drinking one with "decidedly German twist". But this doesnt mean being reverberated into Sisyphean circumstances: what weve got here is a nice exemplar that shows the splendid usage of a putative second order hop variety adding some well matching spiciness.

Keg @ Urban Chestnut. Hazy gold with a small head. Quite peppery, some baked countryside field. Orange twist. The taste is quite sweet. Peppery herb and caramelized orange. Some honeydew malon. Medium body, soft carbonation.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 16.9 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aromas are very bright tropical, citrus, grass, and pine notes. It pours a murky orange color with a white soapy head that retains well and leaves a good amount of lace. Its a touch more sweet than bitter, but both are medium-high levels. The oily texture has a soft, creamy carbonation and a full body. It finishes with a dry, tropical, citrus, pine, and grass note. Some pineapple distinctly stands out. Its a very complex, yet mellow aftertaste that has a pleasant, mellow aftertaste to go with it.
