3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Aroma is citrus, hops, very, very good. Appearance is clear amber with a huge white foam. Taste is complex, some sweetness but a clear bitterness and dryness in the end. A soft carbonation, nice mouthfeel, quite easy for an IPA. However, a very good beer. A bit too pricey overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The fancy 75cl bottle with a punt deep enough to get lost in, picked up at Rudat GmbH in Dortmund, pours with a clear copper body with golden hues and supporting a dirty white head of foam. The mild aroma offers up some citrus, a bit of yeast and a faint spiciness. The taste begins with a full flavor hit of sweetened tangerine and grapefruit hop flavor as well as an initial rush of citrus hop bitterness. The hop bitterness rolls off pretty quick leaving a tasty malt sweetened citrus sensation as this heads into the finish. At the end there’s a mild citrus bitterness that comes weakly to the surface to help close out the experience. Overall a pretty tasty IPA product that is a bit lean on hop bitterness but not by much. I like it and the aroma picked up nicely as it warmed.

Bottle @ home shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear orange to slightly amber color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, lightly tropical fruits but also a little bit a hint of dishwasher water. Taste is virtually the same: malts, lightly hops, lightly tropical fruits but again lightly that dishwasher aroma. Average body, average carbonation.

Bottle @ benzai. Clear golden orange colour with a medium to big sized white head. Smells orange peel, floral. I expected more smell. Tastes some hops, bitter, malty. Could use more body, less malts and more hops. Nice carbo.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle shared with a fellow Siebel student, thanks Brian! Pours a clear golden orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice with bright, fresh fruits and a nice caramel note. Bitter oranges, grapefruits, tropical fruits, and some peaches with a nice resiny note. A hint of biscuit in the malts as well. Flavor is similar. A good amount of tropical fruits, peaches, and citruses with some resins throughout as well as a lightly sweetened, somewhat biscuity caramel malt backing. Finishes pretty dry and bitter with a good amount of fruits and resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA. Well hopped with a fairly complex assortment of fruits balanced nicely by a lightly sweetened malt backing. Good one.

Nice to see the Germans experimenting a bit. Well crafted IPA from this Frankfurt brewery. Sweet, piney aroma, medium amber body with light beige head.Taste is pine, hops, tofee, butter. A nice treat and a break from the Reinheitsgebot.
