Can (per the instructions on the can). Since I’m drinking it from the can I have no idea about the color. Has a strong Mosaic hop character. Mango and peach. Medium body and not too dry.

Teku glass. Golden, little hazy with medium, white head. Nice head retention and lacing. Intense citrus (zesty lemon) and piney aromas. You can find here also nice aromas of tropical fruits (mainly mango). Somewhere in the background some light crakcery notes. Taste is very bitter and refreshing, during degustation you can fell some malty sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation, finish is long dry and bitter. No alcohol warmth, despite it’s bitterness the beer is highly drinkable. In overall nice crisp, clean and hoppy IPA. This is real hop bomb. Good balanced.

Orange color lightly cloudy beer, a lot of stuff floating in, big white head with nice lasing on the glass but big bubbles. Aroma: a lot of hop, but not as much as I expected, mostly pine resin, some sweet fruits. Taste: medium smooth sweetness, mango, peach, sweet orange, than high bitterness with citrus, grapefruit, grass, resin notes. Medium to full body, low carbonation, smooth beer. Overall: I’m not drinkin it out of date but aroma is pretty poor and beer dont looks to well. But in taste, damn, its delicious.

Hard to follow up after heady. A solid brew in its own right, but not in the same league as HT imo.

Rofi (57) - POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Aromat świeżego, chmielowego granulatu, słodkie owoce i głównie mango. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa. Barwa jasno słomkowa. W smaku wytrawne, lekko kwaskowe by przy następnych łykach zrobić się bardziej owocowe. Mango pojawia się w smaku u już zostaje. Świetne wysycenie jak i goryczka oraz after taste tylko dopełaniają się wzajemnie. Fantastyczne piwo!

Can thanks to Damico during PBW. Pours a golden yellow color with white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and slight grass. Super creamy, smoth grapefruit taste with some grassiness on backend. Wow. What a beer.
