12 fl oz bottle brought back across the pond from sunny California by Colin, my thanks to him. A golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Superb hoppy, peach, caramel aroma. Tastes the same, hoppy, peach, caramel, a little pine and slightly bitter. I could drink this all evening, lovely SIPA.

neongolden (1115) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 16 2016) Pours clear pale orange with a small white head and lace. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, pine, slightly oniony, grass, light grain and caramel. Palate is pretty dry and moderately bitter with grapefruit peel and grass to the fore, some pine needles. Rather mineral and crisp. Finish is moderately bitter, pith and grapefruit zest and grass. Fairly light body, above average carb. This is a pretty nice as a session IPA, very drinkable but nothing very exciting.

omhper (22752) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2016
Keg at BrewDog Kungsholmen, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, small head. Generous aroma of pears, pink grapefruit and lychee. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Somewhat caramelly with a wealth of pears, passionfruit and resin. Very bitter resiny finish. Quite attractive hops, but quite simplistic and edgy underneath.

tillmac62 (640) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2016
BBD 7/12/16. Pours a clear copper. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Good, but a bit light, nose of citrus that is mostly orange and grapefruit with a dash of herbal dank. Heavy light body with a smooth texture. World class carbonation with a middle effervescent burst and a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish. The outstanding hop flavor centered profile is reasonably intense, not very complex and well balanced. It begins with grapefruit then flows to tangerine as a slightly sweet middle emerges shifting the orange notes forward. The middle yields a moderate bitterness that is rind based with subtle dank undertones. The finish is a slow fade of rind.

onceblind (6674) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Brilliant clear golden with a lush white sticky head. Amazing nose with lots of grassy, piney notes with a little bit of grapefruit. Nice flavor with nice resiny piney flavors, a touch of orange rind, a lupulin-oil bitterness, and a crisp bitter pineyish finish.
