Bouteille 33cl, BB 01/2019. Light gusher. Boasting 250 ibu, if that plata even exists? Orangée avec qcq sédiments, col épais blanc. Arôme fruité tirant sur un effet brett? houblonné emplit de notes de c-hops - agrumes, aiguilles de pin, résineux, forestier. Malté en léger retrait mais le côté seigle est bien présent. Palais est léger centré sur un côté grains, le tout est super sec en fin de bouche avec un épicé de seigle assez dominant, retrouve un effet houblonné vert de mousse verte presque oscillant sur un effet gruit old style - sorte de bouillon d'herbes. Épicé de seigle
14/06/2018 @home - 33cl bottle from a trade with tderoeck. Hazy dark yellow, big white pearly head, lots of sediment floating. Nose is fruity, esp. citrus, resinous. Taste is first some citrus, resinous, long outspoken bitter ending.
Sampled at zythos 2018. Thnx for sharing, everyone ! Pours unclear blonde. Smell is full, hoppy, mild fruity. Bit earthy hops. Taste is full, sharp, very bitter. Intense, very bitter aftertaste.
Deliberately old school (West Coast style) DIPA, from tap at Dok Brewing Company in Ghent. Cobweb-lacing, snow white, creamy, stable, moussy head over a hazy peach blonde beer with deep amberish (almost ochre-ish) hue. Aroma of fresh grapefruit peel, orange juice, onion soup, lots of wormwood, pine resin, rainwater, green olives, stewing shallots, pink peppercorns. Cleanly fruity onset, unripe mango, hard peach and green banana, sweetish with citrusy hints early on, fizzy carbonation adding minerally effects, thick but very supple, oily mouthfeel. Bread crust- and old biscuit-like malt body supports a long, powerfully bitter hop finish, very grapefruity and peppery, long-lasting, with dank oniony and piney notes retronasally; warming, gin-like alcohol accentuates its peppery character. Delivers exactly what it promises and I love it - I wonder if this whole NEIPA hype could prompt a return to the old familiar West Coast style in the IPA world?
Thank you for sharing RB People! Sampled draft @ ZBF 2018. Hazy orange, creamy white head. Nose is awesome massive harsh pine resin, oily, low peach. Harsh old school raw pine resin taste, the kind that you do not really get anymore, faint caramel, raw plastic, mainly harsh pine, grapefruit peel, thick creamy, low oily body. Too bad almost no one makes IPA’s like this anymore. At least this was not another sweet pastry & smoothie IPA :)
Sampled @ Zythos Bier Festival 2018. A hazy orange golden beer with a mid sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of orange fruits, zest, grapefruit. Taste of intense bitter floral hops, zest, Blood Orange, long bitter finish.
Tap. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is grassy hops, caramel. Taste is caramel, fudge, grassy, bitter. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Solid!
