Fantastic aroma! Lemon and grapefruit. The taste is similar. Dry and bitter finish. Maybe just a little bit more carbonation.

jamestulloch (3502) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle (best before 26.04.17) from Bridgend Service Station. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, sea salt and pineapple. Flavour of melon, white grape and honeycomb. Medium body with a syrupy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking for the strength. I’d love to try this fresh on keg.

TET (2682) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2016
A slightly orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has mangos, papaiyas, grapefruits, also fructose. Taste has fruitness of mangos and papaiyas, grapefruits, pine, at least medium bitterness, also sweetness. Medium+ bodied. Not so fresh anymore, that’s degreased the best freshness. But good beer anyway, balanced.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Golden with a nice big frothy white head. Huge aroma of grapefruit and mango. The taste starts sweet with masses of tropical fruits. More grapefruit and mango over smooth caramel. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent.

KyotoLefty (9405) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Big, juicy, syrupy fruit nose, peach, melon, orange, grapefruit. Sweet malt. Hazy orange-gold with a low head. Sweet, fruity, very hoppy. Iced fruit cocktail: grapefruit, cherry, grape, orange, nectarine. Very nice fruit. Sweet but not silly. Rather heavy, syrupy body, though. Great hops, and pretty nice overall.

explosivedog (363) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 22, 2016
Taster at Mikkeller Seoul (had in new zealand before too). Grassy and sweet for the nose, and lots of sweet hops for the tongue. There’s grape, citrus and grass notes and it slips down really smooth. This is a really well balanced imperial ipa. It’s still clearly the style but balanced really delicately.

Kauge (1619) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle from eDrinks. BB scraped off? Pours clear amber with off-white head that drops to islets in an instant. Aroma of... resin, caramel, some indistinct fruity juicy stuff. Tastes overly bitter with some more malty than fruity sweetness in the background. Yet the overall impression is still rather sweet. Funny... Crispish, medium body, not too heavy on the tongue, some stickiness, lingering resiny bitterness in the finish. Feels pretty old. And not my type of IIPA.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
[8195-20160507] 500mL bottle. Juicy orange hops aroma. Clear, bright orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and some thick lacing. Bitter citrus orange tangerine fruity hops flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Tasty. (8/5/8/4/16) 4.1
