A fruity aroma, light smell of hops. The head is small, white and foamy with a normal duration. The body is yellow-orange. A strong taste of hops, quite bitter with a long finish. The body is medium strong, creamy and light oily with a soft carbonation.

I have been known to be the "last man standing" referred to on the label so I guess this is the right beer for me... Egg-white, moussy, very stable, medium thick head leaving a ’membrane’ of lacing around the glass, almost clear, deep and pure golden colour with a light haze of yeast throughout. Pleasant, delicate bouquet of lemon rind and even some candied lemon, mandarin peel, lychee, hint of pine, melon, white bread crust, biscuit, ginger, pink grapefruit, fresh green bell pepper, chicken spices, hint of freshly cut celery. Clean fruitiness in the onset with sweetish and sourish impressions of green banana, lychee, yellow kiwi and passion fruit, medium carbonation, slick but filling, lightly oily mouthfeel; pale malt sweetish backbone with a nice biscuity sweetness to it, adequately balancing a drying, resinous, aromatically hoppy finish with delicate retronasal candied citrus, exotic spice and flower aromas, providing a long, but gentle and elegant bitterness that goes down with some remaining juicy malt sweetishness. Alcohol remains well hidden and it does not feel at all like a +8% ABV beer. Delicate, elegant and refined example of the style, exemplary for one of Germany’s ’new school’, internationally ’craft-oriented’ breweries. Enjoyed this a lot!

Bottled 330ml. -Pale yellow coloured, medium sized white head, hoppy nose with whiff of alcohol. Tastes like chamomile tea with notes of caramel, citrus and herbs. Some hops shows up but nothing significant. Pretty poor for the DIPA. Bad bottle/batch or...

Aavistuksen utuinen, oranssinkeltainen olut vaahtoaa runsaasti ja jättää pitsiä. Tuoksusta paha sanoa oikein mitään flunssassa. Maku maltainen, karamellinen, melko makea ja pehmeä. Samalla kuitenkin kuivempi havuinen ja sitruksinen humalointi tasapainottaa kivasti täyteläistä kokonaisuutta.

From what I personally remember, the best balanced Double IPA I have had so far. Fruitiness & bitterness, body is present and keeping it together. Eine runde Sache we say in German.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with little white head. Aroma is intense pine cone but not so creamy, still light sweet. Gooseberries, tropic fruits, maybe a little banana. Taste is quite fresh, mostly fruity sour and a little bittersweetness. Smooth mouthfeel although bubbly fresh. Tickles the tongue. A little spicy while swallowing which was unnecessary. Long finish of pine cone and more hoppy stuff. Awesome!
