3.71/5 rDev -4.4%
A: Very hazy, rich peachy orange, seafoam head and little visible rising carbonation
S: German hops crossed with an IPA, but leaning on a belgian tripel.
T: Quite decent. Honey, pinefruitiness, initially bitter, but doesn't have a deep bitterness.
M: light and smooth
O: A very easy IPA, and very welcome to Germany. I think I bought this at the Biocompany, which is fantastic if it's that easily available.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy amber-orange pour with a two finger foamy white head with great retention and nice lacing. The nose is somewhat subtle with a decent balance between the sweet caramel malt and the citrusy hops. Hints of tangerine, apricot, and caramel. The taste follows suit with a solid earthy, caramel malt base along with hints of apricot, tangerine, caramel, toffee, orange zest, and a nice herbal hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation and a nice tangy, bitter finish. Overall, this is a solid interpretation and a marked improvement over recent German IPA's I've had.

Six month before sell-by date.
This is a crazy-aromatic beer - as it goes into the glass, it's hugely perfumed. Nice big fine-grained head which settles fairly quickly. Earthy-orange-yellow, slightly cloudy. All the perfume is gone now, there's something I cant pin down - almost phenolic but not cloves, something more like mangoes -yes, it's definitely mangoes, with that weird am-I-sweet-or-am-I something-else mango smell.
First drink is lovely: really smooth, very fine and smooth carbonation, yet lively enough to keep it tingling on the tongue. There's lots of hops, fruitiness too, only on the swallow do I get the explicitly mango taste again. It's not a complex beer, it's drinkable, and well worth trying (especially if you're a fan of mangoes!). A mix of something like a fruity weizen that tastes of mangoes instead of banannas and cloves, with loads of bitter hops added.
I'm slowly warming to it, but have to admit it's just not my cup of tea, I bumped up my original points because I did find it a very interesting beer.
Burps really strong mango too! Too much mango for me.
(disclaimer: I'm not a huge fan of mangoes)

Classified by the brewer as a Bavarian IPA. 33cl bottle. 6.5% abv, 55 ibus, 19.11.2013, batch 2 indicated on the label. Color is burnt orange with a semi-hazy clarity and a consistent, soapy skim of a head with clusters of bubbles around the shoulders. Nose is a pleasant blend of citrus, earthy hops and light fruits (perhaps apricot) with a touch of rind. Taste is a bit dull and watery - characteristics in the nose are merely a shadow. Mouthfeel is light in body with a kiss of acidity, an easy carbonation and a smooth, slightly cream texture. Overall, pretty dull for an IPA but it's a Bavarian IPA (whatever that means). That said, a good transitional beer for a BMC/Pils drinker.
