Pours a golden, hazy, apricot orange color in the glass. Nice fluffy thick head which stays during the whole beer. The nose is fresh hop,mainly cascade with dried yellow fruit as passionfruit, pineapple clover and hints of citrus. You can feel the on top yeast in the nose. yummy :)
Tasting notes: Creamy, very well balanced with perfect amount of hops not being too bitter. Sweet tones of dried apricots, mango, carmel, fresh cut lawn and peach. A beer my style...Smooth kind of long bitter finish. +++

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from The Local Pub, Athens Greece. medium hazy, orange color with close to no head. Aromas of pine, some citrus, flowers and floral notes in general. The taste was a dissapointment, which made me think something was going wrong. Sour, acidic taste, like tasting a rotten fruit or spoiled flowers. Some spiciness maybe on the back, The aftertaste was long, at first pleasant but a little harsh and disturbing afterwards. Light body, light to no carbonation. Probably a bad bottle.

Deep orange cloudy body with a nice foamy thin head. Aroma of fruit and alcohol. The taste was bitter, citrusy, acrid and sour. Thin body and the carbonation was at first biting the tongue but soon disappeared.

Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a very light cloudy orange-golden colour with low head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and spruce. Taste of fresh, aromatic hops, citrus, spruce, herbs and spices. All comes with a very nice light- but also certain deepness....enjoyed it a lot. Great beer. Quaffable, highly enjoyable, aromatic, intense and just great.

Attenti, compagni! Un’invasione di luppoli in arrivo da tutte le parti, impossibile resistere. Note agrumate, di pompelmo e arancia, sentori fruttati di vario tipo e intensità. Le barriere cedono una dopo l’altra: il palato è conquistato. Resta solo un’onnipresente amarezza, intensa e pervasiva, ma è quell’amarezza che a noi birrofili sgargarozzatori compulsivi di ipa piace da morire.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky dark amber colour with a sturdy head that leaves nice lacing. Strong mandarin orange notes in the aroma with grapefruit and lemon zest thrown in. Tastes like it smells, very "tangy" and lively. Bittersweet balance is great and the palate is strong but not too much. Glad I bought two. Lovely !

IPA-ish the right word for this beer. Bitter aftertaste, something between an ALE and IPA. Citrus and grass
