Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Tone on 08-18-2011

A beer we are describing as a ‘Bavarian IPA’. Brewed and dry-hopped with a variety of Hallertau ‘hopfen’… instead of the usual and more citric hop varieties of most American IPA’s… gives this beer a decidedly German twist.

500ml bottle poured into a Brasserie de Silly tulip. No bottled on date.

A: Pours two fingers of foamy white head with a hazy orange body (awesome color for an IPA). Lots of patchy rings of lacing with a big dollop of head in the middle.

S: Up front lots of grassy, plant like hops followed by a strong note of lavender. Like smelling grandma's garden. Some sweet biscuit malt pokes out in the back.

T: It's all about the hops here, guys. A very similar hop profile to the nose; dried grass, fleshy plants, lemon tartness and lavender. Backbone of biscuity malts with a lingering hop bitterness.

Mf: Medium/thin feel with a drying and coarse texture. Bitter around the edges. Good drinkability. Crisp and thirst quenching.

O: Overall a very enjoyable IPA with a unique hop profile. Being more used to the American hop varieties this was really fun to try and pick up notes I wasn't used to getting from hops. Drinks quite easily as it's not a brash hop profile like most American IPAs. I'll finish the bottle with ease. Recommended.
