Bottle. Clear golden pour, frohty stable white head. Weak nose, with sweet malts. Taste is very balanced and mild, with a hint of bitterness, then a sweeter long finish. Don’t find the grapefruit very apparent, if present at all. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation.

martjoobolut (934) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 06.01.2015. Pours dark golden with slightly off huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is pine, caramel, and citrus. Taste is intense grapefruit bitter, more fruits, caramel, and honey sweetness in the back. Finish is long grapefruit bitter and sweet. Overall: nice fruity IPA.

Hanoi (458) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Nose is grapefruit, pine, slight lychee. Taste is very bitter pine, leading to slight tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is suitable. It’s a very underwhelming IPA, it has the pine, but never really develops the tropical tones it hints to and the pine is too one note.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

Bamsen78 (3413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and fruit, the latter being rather dominant for a beer within this style. Bitter, hoppy flavour, wi well pronounced sweetish, fruity notes. Bitter afteraste. Nice but tastes more like a DIPA without the ABV peculiar to that style.

55 cl bottle, 3€, 5.6%, 57 IBU. Clear amber color with a big rocky white head. Very hoppy on the nose. Aroma is grapefruit with hints of caramel, dried apricot and a load of bitter hops. Taste is definitely bitter and somewhat metallic. Light carbonation, medium bodied, oily texture. Damn bitter one.
