brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a two finger off white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit, blood oranges, floral, grape, raspberries? A wine-like smell. Little bit of breadiness and carmel coming through after the initial bitter fruits smell. A musty, earthy smell as well. This beer is almost a year old and the amarillo hop presence on the nose has still not gone away. Taste starts with a moderate hop presence that brings grapefruit, orange, grape, maybe some passionfruit. Leaves you wanting more on the front. Then get a nice dose of breadiness along with some carmel sweetness from the malts. Then comes back with more grapefruit, grape, orange, grass. Decent bitterness, but almost get a watered down sensation on the finish, as well as some booze. Get a good amount of sweetness on the finish as well. Low full body with a sticky and creamy mouthfeel. There is something definitely missing here. The age unfortunately showed and took away from the hop bite. Some IPA’s from overseas can really be great, but the high price combined with the lack of freshness is really starting to push me away. A fresher bottle could change my mind, but there is just something lacking here.

willisread (1282) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a small off-white head with large bubbles. Huge orange nose with mandarin and blood orange as well. All amarillo hops on the nose. Taste is fairly well-balanced but slightly warming on the finish. Great showcase for amarillo hops with a medium bitter finish. Underlying sweetness on the palate throughout as well.

Hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of apricot, grapefruit and hops. Taste is very balanced between sweet and bitter. Hoppy, smooth, creamy. Fantastic IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 St Annaland, 2015 met Lou Wat een topper! Lekkere IPA soort met veel hop! Hierdoor een bittere afdronk. Maar tegelijkertijd ook een enorm fruitige, frisse smaak en perfect tijdens warme temperaturen. Smaakt zoet naar citroen en salmiak.

Barwa pomaranczowa. Piany niemal brak, szybko znikła. Lepi szkło. W aromacie cytrusy. W smaku goryczka średnia, skontrowana dużą słodowością. Zaskakujące jak na double, ale przyjemne. Sporo ciała. Wysycenie średnie. Fajne.

Oranje / amber, troebel. Ruw ingeschonken om nog wat grofbellige kraag te krijgen, die wel lang blijft. Ruikt moutig, citrusfruitig, smaakt behoorlijk volfruitig, bitterzoet, weinig koolzuur. Fruitmoutige nasmaak.

Pours golden amber with a large white head that leaves a lovely lacing on the glass. Aroma is beautiful sweet maltyness with citrus. Taste is toast, burnt caramel with a mild piney, bitter finish. Tastes very fresh. Enjoyed this one by the canal on Herengracht, Amsterdam with some lovely cheese in the sun. Perfect.
