Excellent beer, refreshing and tasty. Very fruity aroma to pineapple, mango, lychee and grapes. It continues in the mouthfeel. Long development, with an exquisite and hoppy, dry finish. Great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Slightly hazy amber colored, nice head. Nose of tropical fruit, hops, nelson sauvin. Pretty bitter flavor, tropical fruit again, little malt presence. Dry and bitter flavor. Certainly shares some characteristics with Marlborough wines. Could use some more maltyness, but neventheless a nice IPA.

this is one beautiful IPA. I tasted it for the first time tonight, and it’s one of the most surprising beers i’ve tasted. surprisingly great. I got notes of mandarin in the palate. but it’s a lovely bright taste while holding a rich fullness of the hops.
I’m definately going to try it again soon

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Craftissimo. Translucent amber-brown with thin white head and wispy watery legs. Smells of very sweet malt, lots of banana bread, some pear, spice, crisp juicy hop. Tastes of spice, light citrus, very malty and deeply bitter. Body is thin to medium, crisp, hint of frothiness. Not as good as the Fresh Hopwired in my opinion (and maltier than I remembered it being) but still an excellent beer.

Bottle from Craftissimo. Can't believe I hadn't rated this before! Almost clear copper-amber pour with thin sticky head. Smells like what a great IPA should smell like - fruity pineapple and mango hops with sweet maltiness (more malty than I remember). Taste is fruity hops again with some citrus bitterness. Enough maltiness to balance it. A bit bubbly in at the finish but still very smooth in a good way. Great IPA
