Wow - very tropical - lychee, pine, spice, cloves. Piney and grassy hops in the taste with some light spice and lemon. Lovely drink

Hoppy aroma with hints of pine, slighlty hazy golden color, rather thin head dissapears quickly. Hoppy taste of caramel, pine, bitter grapefruit, some floral flavor. Nice bitter finish with hints of caramel. Medium-lively carbonation. Overall: really nice one, would drink again.

A very good beer that can make this 6.6% beer dangerous. Very smooth and very drinkable or dare i say sessionable? Nice 1 finger head, deep in colour combining with a really nice floral and spicy aroma and taste. Its not harsh on bitterness either. Very good beer.

OliBird (30) - WALES - OCT 17, 2013
A well balanced beer. Poured clear golden from a bottle, with a fingers width white head, fairly good retention. Tastes fairly sweet and well balanced with bitterness. Strong aroma of melon, pine and orange. Lovely stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (3633) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2013
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy dark golden to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Herbal and piney hoppy aroma, minimally soapy, background-ish fruity hints of lychee, slightly perfumed character. Taste is complex dry hoppy, herbal, piney, minimally resinous, fruity, floral; robust biscuity malt basis. Excellent!

Beertobealive (209) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
Good surprise after mitigated tests from the brewery. This beer is the link between IPA and a blond Belgian style. Perfect with mimolette.

jimbaxter (23) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Outstanding though a very haevily hopped version of this beer style. Love the depth of alcohol vs grapey hop presence. Also a yeasty depth which was a reminder of the classic style. Awesome beer
