Fantastic IPA. Citrus and grapefruit in the nose, great aroma. Taste is more citrus, slight fruity bitterness but not overpowering. Great drinking IPA, probably one of the best I've had.

Citrus aroma with a good foam. Orange slighty hazy color. Light to medium body, smooth bitter at first with a dry end requering another drink. Amazing taste & drinkability.

On tap at Duke’s, Malibu. Hot damn, this is a nice beer. Great aroma kicking my nose, nice great balance with malt. Alcohol is well hidden. I slurped two of these down in a hurry and would have had more but I was driving. Yummm0.

Bottle pour. A little underwhelmed by this, given the hype. Has a unique taste but a somewhat weak body. I don’t even know if i’d call it an IPA. Not bad though.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear golden pour, with just a touch of amber, coupled with a very nice head and long lasting lacing. The nose is a complex blend of grapefruit, mango and other sweet tropicals against a subtle spruce. Light medium body with a smooth texture. The carbonation level is a touch above normal. The outstanding flavor profile is expertly complex and follows the nose. Grapefruit leads then flows into the sweeter hop flavors. In the middle the biscuit malt comes through against a subtle spruce flavor. The finish effervesces into a grapefruit bitter tartness over a caramel sweetness. This is an outstanding complex hop flavor bomb.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle shared with Charly and Finn. Dotted spots on the glassware from a persistent, bubbly, off-white head. Cloudy apricot coloured body. Hop fruity aroma containing grapefruits and lemon. Fruity taste of ripe orange, apricot, and pumpkin. Bittersweet citrus peels to the ending. Medium plus bodied. Good drinking (Tromsø 19.02.2014).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap. I’ve wanted to try this beer for a while, happy to find it finally. It pours a rich copper color with a big head and very good lacing. The aroma is rich, super-fresh. Taste is good, palate is just a little bit weak. It’s closer to a double-IPA in my opinion. Very decent.

This beer has a great floral aroma. The hoppy taste is strong but has a clean crisp finish. Definitely worth every high rating I've seen in the past. I tried it on draft and in cans and both had similar flavors.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a near perfect beer. Smell and taste the fruit. Apricot holds true to the description. Great tasting IPA but don’t be deceived. This is not your typical IPA. This one is a rarity.
