OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2012
bottle, from Triangle Wine. Ok aroma, sweet. mild pine, some citrus, little honey. little wet carboard. hazed brownish orange color, small head, little to no lace. bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. think this one is past itís prime, Iím getting the start of oxidization. Iím always leary of imported ipaís and this didnít do anything to change my mind. I donít get any of the big citrus some comment on.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 1, 2015
Awesome IPA! Nose starts quite caramely with intense hints of fruitiness, grapefruit, lemon, peach, passion fruit. Same goes in taste - decent sweet malty background with expressive amount of hops. Starts sweet, but bitterness is overtaking step by step making nice bittersweet harmony.

SinH4 (679) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Massive amount of stable foam. Nice orange color. Looks great! Mango-grapey aroma, reminds me of some other Sauvin beers Iíve tried. Taste is sweet-fruity, red berries, tropical fruits at the beginning, caramely, then a great bitterness towards the finish. Superb New Zealand IPA, and a nice beer for my 175th rating :)
