Very pretty deep orange pour with a thin-ish white head. Tangy nose...citrus and brandy. The entire experience is indeed like drinking a brandied fruiitcake (which I like). Raisins, citron and bready malt. I know the hops are in there, but not a hoppy beer in a traditional sense. I dont taste a west coast ipa, just my opinion.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Pours golden with a long white, foamy head. Nose is pure hop deliciousness with a touch of apple. Flavor is classic west coast IPA and quite well balanced. Nothing ground breaking but a fine west coast style IPA.

Gyllenorange vätska, med tjockt skum. Dofter av grape, mango och något annat, kryddigt. Bra punch i beskan. Fruktig med en söt närvaro, som beskan lätt bemästrar.

Bon gout de fruits rouges avec de bonne notes d’amertumes. Gout d’alcool plutot present mais tres bien dosé.

Bottle on Acela train. I’ve had this beer many, many times. Very good. Nose is hoppy and pine. Taste is lots of hops but really well balanced. Very smooth texture and enjoyable. Smooth and creamy in the delectable finish.

Hopmaestro (662) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2015
Aroma is malty and hoppy with citrus and oranges. Some pineoil breaks through. Deep malts. Taste is sweet with caramels, pine needles and gentle hops falling from the sky in the end. Dry ending and pleasant bitterness. A superb Imperial Ipa.
