4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
3 weeks old bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a clear amber with a medium big, white, soapy head. Aroma is very fresh, green and fruity. Greenhouse, tomato plant, Haribo peaches. Very complex upon being so nice and fresh! Taste is very very good as well! Nice, hoppy bitterness and the perfect amount of malt sweetness, which is fairly little. Damn, this is good! Smooth body and medium carbonation. Boom! Just saying: Best IIPA iíve had so far!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 month old Bottle thanks to Bursprak. Pours orange amber with an off white head. Aroma of nice floral notes, citrusy hops, weak "greenhouse" (in a good way), peach, sweet orange, candied peaches, a slight note of honey and sweet malts and some grapefruit. The taste is fairly bitter but has a nice sweetness to it that creates a gentle balance. Lots of peach, big fat citrusy hops, grapefruit, floral notes, sweet orange and weak eucalyptus. Despite my skepticism this did not disappoint me! Wow!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with a light head that leaves no lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, apricot and a slightly sweet malt bed. Flavor is rich. Resinous pine, sweet fruit and citrus followed by buttery rolls. Finish is dry and has a medium bitterness. The alcohol is masked almost completely. Body feels full and carbonation is mild. Overall an excellent brew. Not sure it lives up to the legends, but certainly worth having.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle packaged 1/20/15. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, that passes. Followed by some sweet, well constructed malt, and some bitter. Itís nice - but not worth the hype based on this bottle. Will try and find another.
