3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark copper, hazy body, with a big, frothy, white head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma of strawberry, flowers, tangerine, citrus, grass, biscuit. Taste is bitter, with grapefruit, pine, resin, also some red fruits, strong malt backbone, with grass, biscuit, some herbs. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes strong bitter, dry, with grapefruit peel, pine, grass, herbs. Nice, interesting! While the smell is sweet, fruity and malty, the taste has a pretty harsh hop bite, but also a strong malt backbone to balance the bitter, piney notes. Another very good IPA by this brewery!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is fruity hops, citrus, plenty of orange, tangerine, biscuit malt, touch of floral, grapefruit, some caramel and pine resin. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium, very smooth and drinkable. I can never have enough orange in my IPA, and this one sure delivers. Great balance between hoppy citrus orange tanerine and sweetish biscuity caramel malt. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber beer. I tried to leave most of the sediment in the bottle. Aroma is dry, bitter citrus and hop. Flavour is much the same. Grapefruit is the dominant flavour but it’s not overbearing or bitter and tart. In fact, it’s quite a refreshing beer. Lingering hop flavour, fairly hearty in the mouth. It’d be nearly perfect for a hot day were it not for the strength.

Bottle at home. Clear orange golden with cream colored head. Grassy, hay, tangerines, lots of grapefruit skins, light citrus juice, resin. Just massive citrus skin and hay basically, with light caramel maltiness underneath. Under medium sweet and strong bitter. Medium bodied with oily feel. Nice but very bitter.

Pours muddy copper with huge chunks of yeast. Impossible to leave the sediment in the bottle with this one. Fruity, biscuity aroma. Loads of tropical fruit flavours, plenty of citrus, decent malt backbone, a little caramel, topped off by a heavy bitter finish. Looks ugly as sin, never seen as much yeast floating in a beer, but tastes great.

Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy amber body with lots of yeast chunks floating below a thin off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of peach, caramel and orange. Flavour of grass, juicy hops and lime chutney. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Looks like pea soup but it smells and tastes like a quality IPA.
