3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Braukunst Live 2013. Herbal hop aroma, light wood and earth. Mellow chewy mouthfeel , grainy, onions, light grass and tropical notes. Chewy. Not entirely harmonic, but fresh and pleasant enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very fresh bottle, not even a one month old. An orange beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma is intensive, tropical fruits, peaches, fructose, some bananas and hint of citrusfruits. Taste is fructose and sweet, then fruits, drying aftertaste with some pine. This feels more like DIPA and freshness of IPA isn’t there. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation. Not totally convincing beer, should be more refreshning.

This is NOT an IPA, however it is a very pleasant easy drinking beer.Overwhelming head, light malt nose and profile,medium hop finish
I quite lie this, and it could score much higher if it was more akin to an actual IPA

Bottle. Hazy gold with a huge head. Big grapefruit aroma. Flavour dekivers citrus hops with a dependable caramel backbone. A good IPA.

A very nice beer...bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Poured into a glass with loads of head. Great hoppy flavor and lighter color versus some copper-colored IPA’s. Nice IPA flavor but not too heavy as this is a Spring hop. Overall, a nice drinker and worthwhile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold into a snifter. It’s a gusher... foamy head fills the glass, craters and recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Lemon and yeast aromas. Sweet yeast and caramel turning dry and citrusy in the lasting finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle from vinmonopolet Vika. Pours cloudy orange with a two finger small bubbled head. Grapefruit aroma, and some citrus notes to the tounge. Long soft bitter finish. A bit flat taste. Light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness, light sourness. Medium body, thin to sticky texture, soft carbonation. ok but a bit boring.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Whole orange and pineapple nose. Cloudy amber, enormous yellow head, full of chunks. Unlike the aroma, the flavor is decidedly less fruity. Spinach and parsley, with lemon zest. Harsh fizzy mouthfeel. Leafy, dry, and bitter. Unappealing.

Ambrato carico all’aspetto con schiuma persistente. Al naso direi tanto pompelmo, ma anche ananas. In bocca è molto bevibile e non stanca, anzi...
