3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Hazy amber body with huge long-lasting white head. Very nice aromas of lemon, mango, litchi and red berries in the nose. Taste starts sweet, again with generally the same aromas, but with some more pine, the malt backbone is a bit more present in the middle and it finishes with a medium bitter citrus and pine. medium body. Very good, well balanced and easy to drink, although the taste maybe doesn’t exactly keep what the wonderful nose promises, but definitely one of the best IPAs from Germany I drank so far!

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy amber color. Aromas of lime, onion and orange. Bittersweet taste with citrus, pine, orange and onion with some caramel, some herbal orange peel notes and some saltiness. Medium to full body, some alcohol sharpness. Pungent pine-onion section is somewhat off putting.

Bottle:Deep golden, hazy, stable creamy off-white head with a good lace, solid nose of grapefruits and other exotic fruits and juicy malt; medium to full bodied, very soft, medium to solid bitter-sweet flavour; lingering citrussy-hoppy finish with a tinge of cough syrup. Great stuff…

My best beer experience until now. Nice amber colour, tight head and nice aroma of bitter oranges. Impressing mouth feel. Complex and well balanced with a mighty hop aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 33cl bottles, bierpost. Pours a pleasant caramel and blood orange peel acajou with white head, some retention. Very inviting floral exotic fruit aroma not fully borne out by the roughly top-fermented Keller/Zwickl caramel body. Straightforward wet Amarillo & Simcoe pine & zest interestingly outbalanced by dry caramalts. Good entry-level GPA, no specific need for that haughty sommelier teku glas though...// rerate bottles 04-05-2014: really nice showcasig of the amarillo orange marmelade and pink grapefruit notes, yet the caramalts send it in the direction of a rougher UK Bitter and yeast profile is fairly oily.

Bottle from McTapps, many thanks: Aroma of fresh lemon juice and other fruits. Hazy amber color, huge off-white creamy head. Flavor has also unusual lemon juice notes with citrus peel, few malt and caramel. Dry, hoppy finish.
