Bottled (in a shaker) at Spritzenhaus. Pours orange hazy color. Aroma is mango, lemon, orange peel, malt. Balanced. Flavor is orange peel, lemon. Hop bitterness. Good but would be better in a proper glass or on tap.

Well-crafted really good IPA. Lack of unique hops and a poor lingering palate hold this from excellence. Still, it is highly drinkable and enough complexity to make this an A-/A beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An orange beer with a quite weak and blond head. The nose has tropical fruits, mangos and papaiyas, some grapefruits. Taste has grapefruits, some pine needles, slightly tropical. The bitterness is quite strong and it stays in the mouth quite long time as a piney. Only balancing sweetness. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. This is great IPA.

At a pho place with only bud on tap, saw this in the cooler. Not as bitter as other iPas but great hop taste. Bright and cloudy appearance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve had this several times in bottles. I guess the label put me off because I passed this one by many times until the reviews made me have a taste. Fault free pour, nice head. Aroma of C hops, nice taste balanced between light malt and bitter, citrus flavors. Easy to drink and not notice the alcohol. Quite a nice beer.
