Heidbummer (875) - SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2017
Had this before but reviewing anew. Pours gold and clear, soft aroma of grass and biscuits. I think this has lost a bit of edge. It’s more lager with an extra layer of bitterness than a true IPA. Still, decently hoppy, a bit of sweetness and crispness too. Highly drinkable.

500 ml bottle from Mega Image Constanta. Clear orange color, good creamy head of long duration. Fresh hoppy and lemon aroma, orange peel notes. Slightly bitter as final note. Good summer beer!

Ipa de 5 % abv, en format 50 cl, dont le brasseur nous dit qu’elle est "wickedly hoppy"... on voudrait le croire !! Trois malts au programme : orge, blé et seigle, ainsi que de l’avoine. Petit problème général quand même : on est avec une bière pasteurisée … Mon exemplaire était à 10 mois avant date. Couleur doré à reflets verdâtres (peut-être la pasteurisation .. je plaisante), à la clarté nette (of course …). Bulles très fines, en colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanc cassé, épaisse, avec structure ferme en haut, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de beau malt, houblon, fleurs de haie vive, pointe de magnolia, houblon de Bohême. 1ère bouche très souple, avec un ensemble malt/houblon joli, et une pointe de houblon vert délicate. Arrière-bouche longue, à l’amertume très originale. 2ème au très bel ensemble, mais l’amertume verte perce davantage. Arrière-bouche où un malt pilsner domine. 3ème au bel ensemble, mais avec un manque sur l’équilibre. Arrière-bouche agréable. Longueur qui force l’impression sur le houblon tchèque. Jambes fines, serrées, assez collantes. Levure douce, fine. Alcool un peu juste sur la longueur, il ne peut pas maintenir le cap. Finale simple, mais agréable. CONCLUSION : une ipa basique, malheureusement pasteurisée, mais certainement sous-cotée sur le site. Ceci dit, ce n’est pas un "joker" non plus, et elle n’est pas wickedly hopped (mais cela, c’est du marketing …).

Bottle in craft beer advent calendar. Really well hopped with plenty of citrus, including lingering through the finish. Really enjoyable.

0.5l bottle. Pours clear light yellow colour with medium size white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, flowers. Highly bitter, lightly sweet, no sourness. Medium body, average carbonation, thick feel, long lasting strong bitter aftertaste

mmargarucci (343) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Aroma of citrus and bread. Taste is not very complex roasted malt profile followed by biscuit and lemon notes from hops. Nothing special.

BeardedAvenger (1118) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
On tap at The Admiral, Glasgow. Vague malty aroma. Gold with a thin white head. Crisp bitterness. Light bodied. Pretty standard attempt IMO.

hajsman (377) - Gdañsk, POLAND - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle. Medium head, clear golden. Aroma of grapefruit, biscotti, caramel. Nice IPA without American hops which are everywhere now. Medium bitterness and body. Generally solid

shoestring (427) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Grapefruit to the fore. Biscuits lemon peel, the lot . Refreshing with dry finish. Bit of tinny aftertaste as pint went on and citrus was wee bit overpowering for me as I felt needed something to balance it?
