A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Sweet malt and grapefruit fruity aroma come from this orange brew with a red tint. A fruity medium bodied taste with hints of hop flavor. As the beer sits the bitterness comes out with an almost biscuit like flavor. Not a bad brew.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a fine frothy white head. Pleasant citrusy hops in the aroma. The taste starts easy, followed by a fair share of bitterness. Really enjoyable.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
It has nice big foam with a little creamy trend. Smells wonderful citrus and flowers. Hoppy bitterness is the first and only flavors, but it is also an IPA. Its hops has the flavor of fruit and citrus and slightly aggressive in its expression. Lots of brash and aggressive hops, good fruit notes, all without taking the upper hand, and of course an aftertaste that is dry.
