Oct review, exp Jan 2013

A: basically no rising carbonation, but a decent, 1.5 finger head. Transparent amber.
S: A cross between an IPA and a syrupy Belgian ale. Flower nectar. A bit sweet but also of a leather shoe
T: Half DIPA, half Belgian pale ale. There’s a funny sappy sweetness which I don’t love. Woody, feety. Okay.
M: a slight sting and a bit drying
O: Decent, but not my dream ipa

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Crystal clear yellow-orange pour with a quickly fading one finger white head with minimal lacing. The nose is almost non-existent with some subtle tangerine notes along with a bit of grass and not much else. The taste is a bit more bold with a solid caramel malt base along with hints of orange zest, lemon, grass, and subtle pine. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit oily with medium carbonation and a nice tangy, bittersweet finish. Overall, this is far from a Double IPA by anyone's standards. It's barely an IPA at that. It's light and session-able but probably not worth re-visiting...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Clear amber, off-white head, decent head retention, very little lacing.

S: Intense hops, floral and a little piny. Sweet and syrupy. Little fruit

T: Strong bitterness upfront, little but present hop flavours, similar to the smell. Not much sweetness, finishes with a strong hop bitterness, slightly resinous. Quite unbalanced in my opinion, not much of a malt backbone to hold up to the intense bitterness.

M: Average

O: Good looking DIPA, interesting hop aroma, a little bit out of balance in my opinion.

Bright bronze with speckledy snowy flim.
Mashy, slightly citrusy nose with some tin.
Soft buttermilk biscuit malts with lemon boiled sweets hops with bits of resin and nectar.
Lt-med, soft, creamy.

Not a DIPA by any stretch – too pale, thin, and weak. Technically sound, but no magic here. There is better German craft.
