YigSvartka (273) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 25, 2016
Translucent golden orange with a meager sized white head. Complex aroma with notes of caramel, vanilla, pineapple, mango, lemon, orange, and citrus. Mid bodied, smooth, and malt oriented. Delectable taste with flavours such as the aforementioned aromatics, particularly sweet tropical fruit, finishing with a sweet nectar and hop finish. Nice.

chupachups01 (38) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - FEB 24, 2016
I wish I head this beer fresh. Bottle 4 months ago so read with a grain of salt. Aroma is caramel, resin, earthy, woody. Quickly disappearing white head. Flavor is light sweetness, complex mouthful. Overall a solid imperial that I wish was fresh.

sulawang (913) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Visual: Pours clear deep orange without much head, very thin hazy layer of retention, scattered singular steady streams. Nose: clean biscuity toffee malts. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: crisp-slick-thick, nano creamy mouthfeel Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, tangy-light sour backbone, (MAIN) orange citrus , toffee barley malt Finish: residual sweet barley malt, super subtle dry grassy citrus bitter hops, zen-like clean finish Summary: Incredibly smooth transitions and outright ridiculously well hidden 9% ABV. After 800+ beer tastings I’ve never come across such a fluffy creamy mouthfeel! A must try for any beer connoisseur.

malingil (18) - Luzern, SWITZERLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Ein bisschen enttäuschend nach allem was ich über dieses Bier gehört habe. Für mich ein gutes, aber nicht überragendes IPA. Eher Malzlastig mit Caramelnoten. Der blumige Hopfen ist für meinen Geschmack zu wenig present, und im Gesamten ist es eher Süss und es fehlt an Bitterkeit im Abgang. Ein Gutes Bier, aber kein hervorragendes IPA.
