4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Pours a clear golden color with a one and half finger head that leaves all sorts of lacing as the beer goes down. Aroma is citrus, peach and mango with a hint of piney hops. Taste is unbelievable!! This is very well balanced beer. I can see why everybody rates this beer so high. The hops are not overpowering but deliver the right amount of kick at the end.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to a very crunchy friend pours a orangish amber with lacy white head. Aroma is very fruity definitely mango comes through and some citrus flavored hop. Flavor has a lot of hop, great balance in the use of hops nice bitterness but with lots of great hop flavor that is more citrus and a little bit of a spicy malt character. Overall this was a gem of a beer that I was not expecting but it’s an impressive beer that is very true to the style good balance of hop malt flavor aroma and alcohol warmth.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this on tap 3 weeks ago, pouring from the bottle as I taste tonight. Equally enjoyable from the bottle, orange-lemon aroma that translates to a somewhat piney flavor, I’m thinking Simcoe hops in here somewhere. Clear golden color in the glass, carbonation and viscosity add up to all you’d want in an IPA, not as thick as some Imperial IPAs but approaching that slightly thicker mouthfeel. Not a "session" IPA, a bit of a palate-wrecker, so best to reserve to end of the evening or better yet, just enjoy it on a night when you’re just ready for ONE exceptional beer. Because YES this one is worth the 100-point rating, outstanding effort.

This was a fantastic beer.
The hop profile was fantastic bright and hoppy. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruits, a pleasure to drink.

Une bonne IPA, une base savoureuse, un fort accent d’amarillo. Bonne bičre mais notation exagéré.

Poured into a glass from a bottle. Hazy orange with a thin head. Smells of grapefruit. Taste hoppy with a bite at the end. Overall it's a great IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bhensonb. Thanks a bunch, man. Big lemony/orange hoppiness in the nose that mixes well with a deep floral sweetness. The initial taste lives up to the promise! There is a big hoppy smack with the balancing sweetness right there with it. Perfect timing. Palate is a bit rough with the hoppy bitterness, but it runs a smooth malt softness right away. The beer finishes just dry enough. This would be regular for me if I could get it, and is a solid 4.2 without hesitation. Thanks for the beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ MÖWF. Hazy golden with one finger white head. Aroma of grass, pine, citrus and orange with some grains in the background. Taste of bitter lemon and grapefruit peels with grainy malts also noticeable. Nice prickly mouthfeel with long lasting bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden pour that gives half finger of white foam, that quickly dissipates to a persistent ring of lacing. Sugar & lemon aroma, with some grassy notes. Big piney taste on a sugary caramel backbone with a slight copper/metallic finish. Low carbonation with medium body.
