The beer pours a clean copper color with a nice head. Aroma of all the usual sweet citrus fruits along with some pine. Big hops up front, grapefruit and lemon zest. Followed up with some pine and resin. The bitterness provides a long tangy finish.

Una vez la echas en el vaso huele desde lejos a lúpulos cítricos y florales. La primera vez que la bebes es una bomba de amargor, pero que no persiste en el fondo. Notas a romero y caramelo. Bastante cuerpo. Le encantarán a los amantes de las ipas potentes y extralupuladas.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-gold pour, small white head. Aroma is mild and grassy, flavor is of grass, caramel, and booze. Quite bitter, not terribly novel though.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Nose: hops, malt, and nuts. Hints of apple
Taste: bitter! hoppy as hell- IBUs out the ying-yang on this one! The hops (Simcoe, Columbus, Amarillo & Cascade) come through very strong, but the great malts (Munich & Crystal) balance the beer perfectly.
If you buy this beer, you won’t regret it! Best enjoyed in a tulip glass with a bowl of kettlecorn/toffee covered peanuts

Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Rotem. Clear orange with a big bubbly head. Smell of stale fruity and piney hops and caramel. Sweet, fruity, malty, quite alcoholic, medium-high bitterness. Medium-bodied, syrupy texture, quite heavy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 01/22/15, shared by Werckmeister at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Amber, clear body, with a big, frothy, lacing, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, orange, biscuit, grass.
Taste follows this, with more honey like malts.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter-sweet, zesty, piney, sweet malty.
Very nice, although I was expecting a bit more. Straight, with some hop kick, balanced by lots of smooth malts. Quite far behind my favourite IPAs, but still enjoyable.
