Big hop aroma from cloudy orange pour. Pine and resinous hop aroma and flavor. Mild malts and bitter finish. Great brew.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours murky golden body with thick white foam. Nose is sharp citrus, grapefruit, florals, and grass. Juicy apricot and peach taste. Fruity sweetness fades into a piney bitterness. Drinkable and highly enjoyable.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Big fat piney nose, with heavy caramel drippings, grapefruit, some tropical fruit -- all deep and pungent. Cloudy dusky gold, thick white head. Caramel, thick and rich and tasty, hopping enters in mid palate and transforms the caramel chunkiness into a pleasant stew, perfectly seasoned. Moderately long bitter tracks.Solid, complete, and satisfying. It’s nearly a caramel bomb, but it’s saved by the bittering hops. A great IPA.

George999 (315) - Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2015
On draft at the airport, the pour is hazy and the color is orange with a thin white head dissipating quickly but staying, the aroma is citrus and hops, the taste is citrus, hoppy but overbearing, taste buds still remain, the mouthfeel is medium

Hoprider (264) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Hazy orange pour with 1 finger semi creamy head. Gentle but nice hop aroma. The taste is perfect. The beer is in perfect ballance. A medium malty body and a somewhat sweet and fresh hop profile. Not totally crisp but very well rounded and full. Nice fruity aftertaste, mostly on peach and bitter lemon. Carbonation is soft to medium. Very good ipa! Bought fresh a week ago in Cali - doesnt get much better than that when you’re in europe.

jc1762 (474) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2015
Shows green hues and neon yellow with two fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows steel tank, clean pine and sweet malts. Palate is medium bodied, well carbonated. Flavors of a lot of clean pine with a clean malt support. Easy to drink.

KeefOz (1264) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2015
Poured a clouded amber colour with a big frothy off-white head that over-flowed the 20cm glass and then went an unappealing sudsy look. Lacing poor. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma of subtle citrus and a hint of malt. Taste no real flavour, just a bitter aftertaste with the alcohol showing through. Light body. Alcohol burns on the back palate. Very poor.

chriszfat (56) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Pours hazy golden with good head from a bomber. Smell is wonderful and bit on the strong side. Drinks little heavier than some with good solid flavor and finishes hoppy and medium bitterness. Like it.
