355mL bottle from Beer Cartel Pale golden body, holds a dense head. Big smack of hops on the nose; pine, wood sap, leafy herbs, grass, citrus, unripe melon & tropical fruits. A touch of toasty malt in the works too. Tremendously drinkable - smooth, juicy, chewy palate, moderate carbonation - feels like an APA with IPA grunt. Offers even more on the palate - toasty, biscuity malt, a touch of caramel even, then BAM lots of hops - spicy, woody, citrusy, orange sherbert, musk stick, candied melon, other odd metaphors... Good lingering, woody sort of bitterness, but not overbearing or aggressive. Really well made stuff. Not the most crazyily hoppy thing out there, but just a class act.

Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a creamy white head. The aroma is very fruity (oranges, apricots). The flavour is sweet with caramel and biscuit malt, with a long final, very fruity. Very bitter. Extremely well executed.

Amarelo dourado, boa espuma, brilhante. Aroma de lúpulo cítrico, abacaxi, resinoso, pinho. Corpo médio-alto, boa carbonatação. Amargor alto, persistente. Final seco, aquecedor, alcoólico. Boa cerva!

SG111 (427) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1989) - FINLAND - JAN 1, 2015
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.
