COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

raphael (1138) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Some angle of the citrus hops focused on the alcohol flavor, lemon & grapefruit. Lemony aroma with a little vinegar & honey. started hazy but cleared up, pleasant yellow, light on the palate, which is good. light finish.

Bottle. Poured a yellow-orange haze with lots of head. Had a big floral and grass nose with hops and bitter following in the end. Sweet and sticky on the mouth.

erickok (5183) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2016
Very floral hops, modern and a touch English in appeal (modern craft English). Very clear and so the hops shine through sharply. It’s not very refined or unique or with much complexity perhaps, but decent enough, certainly don’t mind drinking this. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Burk i början på semestern. Finfin doft av passion och citrus. Krämig bra balanserad fruktig smak. Är ganska hög alkoholhalt för en IPA men den bär smakerna bra. Kan vara lite för fruktig för att vara riktigt trevlig i munnen. Hyfsad o bra öl!

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Taps clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma features sharp evergreen hoppy note plus a citrus hint. Flavor features powerful hops like fresh-cut evergreen wood supported by citrus and fresh malt hints. Mouthfeel delivers average body but strong and lasting fizz and a hoppy finish. Drive this highway - but not after too many!

tiong (6266) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2016
355ml can from Boxbeers. Canned 02/22/16. Pours golden orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, zesty tropical fruits, citrus, mango, grapefruit and caramel. Taste is malty, sweetish and fruity with some tropical notes, hints of aged hops, grass and citrus. Finish is tropical fruity with some grapefruit, citrus, grass and caramel. Okay, despite it’s not very fresh.

Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body. Aroma is mostly tropical fruits, and little lemon in the background.. Taste starts sweet, then a bite of bitterness, smooths out to finish. Texture is softer.
