This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a nice off-white head on top. Aroma is pine, citrus fruit, honey, peach, sweet biscuit malt. Flavor is pine upfront with honey, orange rind, and toasted breadiness. On the palate the beer starts with a nice hoppy bitterness with toasted bread malts and honey coming in too add a semi-sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Bov (9509) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 22, 2014
from Erzbierschof - clear dark blond beer with a poor head retention; solid fruity hoppy aroma of grapefruit and mango; hints of cheese; a good malt backbone; lively and pretty tasty; a decent bitterness, quite dry and long grapefruity hoppy finish with notes of star fruit

Buczer (240) - Pabianice, POLAND - SEP 18, 2014
bottle, pours golden, slightly hazy with white, quite stable head. Intense aroma of tropical fruits and some herbs. Medium bitterness, bit citric and grapefruit taste, delicate grainy note. Bit astringent bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad, but bit boring.

SamP01 (567) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a hazy orange amber with a quickly dissipating soda like head. Aroma is sweet fruity floral notes. Taste is fruity up front with a kind of mild strange herbal hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with a very mild carbonation. Finish improves somewhat as it warms up some, fruity floral some malt, some mild herbal medicinal hops bitterness. I am not sure what I am missing here but I did not enjoy this IPA at all. date on the bottle by 08/22/14. Would not buy this again.

Marketing robi swoje, piwo niezłe, za to w tej cenie (a nawet i sporo taniej) można kupić już naprawdę wielkie piwa. To jest po prostu średnia IPA wywindowana do ekstraklasy, przez przemyślaną strategię marketingową. I żeby nie było - to nie jest złe, tylko ,absolutnie przeciętne piwo.

wvhoran (244) - Tasmania, - SEP 17, 2014
Draught in Ljubljana. Bright yellow-orange colour, small white head. The aroma is punchy, juicy hops, orange and other citrus. The flavour is sweet, toffee-like, and very citrus forward. Grapefruit and peachy. Very dry.

The rose aroma is thick but the bitterness was a bit too much. Whatever, I really liked it, it’s very refreshing and a great taste.

Profumo tropicale da paura sembra il Solero arancione! Gusto manca un pochino se proprio si vuol dire qualcosa, retrogusto amaro BBUONO. Consigliata.
