Fresh bottle. Pours opaque orange with white frothy head. Aroma is lemon, lime, grapefruit, pine sap. Taste is citrusy, bubbly, crisp, and excellent. The distinctive cat **%* essence from Nelson Sauvin is present and is great. Love the balance here. Remarkable.

Pours a bright honey color, small white head, that leaves loads of lacing across the top of the glass. Aromas are intense!! Wow. Loads of peaches, mango, pine, cat piss, orange peel, musty grapes and a tender cereal note. Taste mimics the nose with the wave of tropical fruit hitting you first. A nice moderate bitter note, along with some citrus peels give this some bite, before a clean finish, coupled with the soft mouth on this makes it go down far too easy. Excellent IPA.

Ziemlich hopfiger, hell getreidiger Antrunk. Intensiv würzig, der Hopfen bleibt süßlich und vollmundig. Die Getreidigkeit bleibt auf Hopfen Niveau, weich, nicht sonderlich süffig. Sehr intensiv, gut. 11/12/11/12/8/12

Bottle from richiesd. Light copper pour with a light tan head that fades to a nice film and semi-thick ring around the edge of the glass. Fresh floral hops, some mandarin orange, nectarine, apricot, well balanced malt presence with some biscuit and caramel. Moderate carbonation and strong body, creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitterness that grows but doesn’t overwhelm, leaves a nice citrus and semi-resin taste on the palate. Really liked this.
