Itís not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAís, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

Golden in colour, translucent, smooth and tasty! I would like another for sure. Like others I got a real pine flavour.

Pours a nice hazy amber with a big, frothy white head. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, cereal, grapefruit, more resiny pine, light brown sugar. Taste starts out moderately sweet, turning into a medium, dry hop bitterness. The dry, bitter finish brings back grapefruit and pine. Medium, slender body with an oily feel. Medium carbonation.
Had this a few times after I encountered it by accident at Brot & Spiele Graz (itís not always available). All four bottles I have had across Europe varied for a bit. When itís fresh, the hops really shine. While the malt backbone is pretty lean, it still backs up the hops with a toasty malt aroma and feeling in terms of body. When itís not that fresh anymore, the hops fade into the malt body - itís less crisp than expected, but still super dry. Really good IPA, can be a bit harsh. But I always enjoyed it quite a bit. Maybe because itís so hard to get around here.

Bottle shared. Nice juicy fruitiness, decent malt backbone, fairly classic stuff yet solid ipa. A bit too simple maybe in this new era of galactic whales and unicorns.

chinchill (4336) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2016
12 oz bottle from SC with a bottling date of Jan. 2016. Hazy copper body with an over-sized,fluffy off-white head. Exceptional retention and lacing. Some sediment stuck on the bottom of the bottle. Mildly hoppy aroma, likely subdued by the thick head. Moderately strong flavor with medium-high bitterness for style. Good mouthfeel excepting for some mile hops-alcohol harshness.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle shared. Thanks Gregg! Light flavors on the nose, caramel, maybe some faint pine. Clean and well-balanced. Very malty with a touch of citrus on the palate. Some light cocoa towards the end. Nice old school IPA.

Tap @ Himmeriget. Medium brown, reasonable head. Boiled sweet hop aroma. Sweet biscuit hop flavour. Bitter toffee hop aftertaste. Another good IPA.

jinroh (1241) - ESTONIA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours hazy amber, not much foam. Aroma is sweetish, malty base with a decent hop kick. This is highly drinkable, malty IPA. Lingering dry bitterness in the finish. Stuff you drink by the pints.

Medium dark amber color. The nose is fairly muted with some managoes and citrus notes. Medium body. Modest bitterness, but actually not that interesting.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2016
On tap at RCBW 2016. Slightly hazy orange colour. High, white head. Sweetness, apricot, notes of pineapple, citrusses in the aroma. Slight bitterness and fruitiness at first. Hoppy and bitter in the middle. Citrussy finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing IPA.

Good IPA. Had at the brewery and was not disappointed. Good mix of hops give this a taste that falls between the citrus and pine zone.

Tap @RCBF 2016. Clearish redish-amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, fruity and caramel in aroma. Malty, caramel, sweet and fruity in taste. Fruity and sweet in aftertaste. Drinkable, but Iíve had similar stuff before.
