Bottle. Pours gold with a quite quickly thinning white head. Nose is strong! You can smell thing thing from a mile away! Mango, pineapple, malts, tangerine. Very full flavour in the mouth. Initial biscuits and toffee, mango and tropical fruits. A warmth across the tongue, a little whisky. Warmth AND flavour filling the mouth. Delicious!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brooklyn’s IIPA with stable, moussy, off-white, thinnish head and light peachy blonde colour, hazy. Aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, biscuit, green apple, lemon zest, flowers, dry white wine, kiwi, lemongrass. Crisp, restrainedly fruity onset, hints of mango, lychee and kiwi, supple body with soft carbo, smooth lightly caramelly malt base, bit bready, very pleasant and well in balance with the hoppiness in the finish, which provides a ton of citrusy and floral aromas retronasally; bittering power, however, remains fairly limited for the style. Not too abrasive even for a double IPA, more on the elegant, balanced side of the style.

355ml bottle from Beerhawk.
Thin white head, little lacing. Slightly hazy orange body. Nose is earthy, citrus. Flavour is balance of earthy and citrus hops, burnt orange finish. Hints of booze linger. Good mouthfeel, medium carbonation, fairly chewy. Interesting combination of English and US hops.

(Keg at OlutExpo 2015) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was meidum bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, hoppy and bitter. A balanced and easily drinkable hoppy pale ale. And Sorachi Ace was well hidden, good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (OlutExpo2015, Helsinki)
Some shampoo soapiness - head and shoulders. Getting some US-05 fingerprint in there too. Bright gold, clear, small tight head. Smells a bit alcoholic, but there’s none in the taste. Super freshi hops in the taste, simple caramelly and bready malts too. Finish has dry bitter husky grains, bitter hops and alas some soapiness in the finish.

Lecker, hatte davor ein Mikeller Green, Zeichen den beiden liegen Welten!
Toller Geruch, schön fruchtig, relativ alkoholisch. Tolle Krone und goldgelbe Farbe, ganz leicht trüb, keine Schwebstoffe!
Geschmacklich ein klassisches IPA, tropisch, Zitrus.
Toller Weizen, Pilsener tut jedem Bier gut.
Schöne Auswahl der einzelnen Zutaten.
Nichts was man nicht schon probiert hätte, aber extrem gut hergestellt und tolles Bier für die Abendstunden.
