3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got a orange to brownish cloudy beer, big frothy head.
Grapefruit in the smell, bread, lemon, grassy. Very grainy.
Taste is tropical fruit and a bitterness, bot not really meeting on nerves on the tongue. Dryness but levels out very smooth in the end.

0.33l bottle. Hazy orange body with a huge white head. Citrusy, grassy hops, caramel and honey in the aroma. Taste is like the aroma: lots of citrusy, grassy hops with a caramely sweetness(actually it has lots of sweetness for an IPA). Very nice.

La primera impresión es negativa, debido a la gran cantidad de espuma que hace eterna la espera hasta que desaparece y puedes degustarla. Color miel, espuma consistente y duradera. Aroma a frutas tropicales. Sabor amargo y cítrico.
Una gran cerveza, aunque con demasiada espuma.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy light brown/orange colour and a thick, creamy off-white head. I like the aroma a lot. It’s fresh, has hops, grass and citrus notes. Quite soft instead of the sharp hoppy aroma some IPAs have. Taste is unfortunately a bit hollow and I was left missing some kind of a bite. There’s slight bitterness and a weak trace of hops. I kept waiting for the aftertaste to hit me but it never came. Mouthfeel is alright, light carbonation so it’s very easy to drink.
Overall, this was unfortunately a disappointment for me.

Bottle @ Home, from Mitra Beukenweg.
Pours slightly hazy, straw yellow. With copious amounts of thick white foam. Bready nose, with hints of saltwater taffy and pine.
Taste is full with European malts appearing first, followed by unmistakeable hops from the New World. Rolls through the mouth. Well balanced.

Hazy orange colour; huge, long-lasting rocky head. Grapefruit juice, fresh pine and nectarine on the nose. Taste is faintly herbal, floral, and full of hop character and bitterness. Dry, spicy finish. High carbonation. Great!

The aroma is very rich in american hops, specially amarillo and simcoe.
Cloudy appearance, big foamy head.

Flavour of tropical fruits, stron bitterness while and after taste but very well ballanced.
