Great beer. Heard was huge and lingering. The aroma is powerful with Strong hints of orange and hops. The taste is fruity, hoppy , with a hint of coconut, and a bitter finish that stay with you.

MisoW (1571) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange color, white head. Aroma of mango, papaya, orange, floral hops. Taste starts medium sweet with light bitterness, full of tropical fruit - mango, papaya, orange. But then a hoppy kick comes, full of grapefruit. Nice looong bitter hoppy finish.

UXO (267) - CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Pours slightly hazy, particle-laden pale amber with one finger of loose off-white head quickly diminishing to a thin skim and patchy lacing. Nose is aggressive citrus and tropical fruit, mild caramel malt. Taste is moderate caramel sweet, intensely bitter pine resin ahead of citrus and tropical fruit, building spice. Medium body and slightly oily texture, low sustained carbonation, and a dry, spicy, lingering bitter finish, with an immediate warming in the gut from the high ABV, the high IBUs, or both. Three hundred IBU. I dunno whether it’s called “Hop Burn” because of the heartburn I expect it’ll cause, or because I think it singed my nose hairs at the first sniff. I’m fairly convinced the particulate is pure alpha acids settling out of solution. For all that, it’s very drinkable. I don’t know if it’s my years of abusing my taste buds with spicy food or what, but on the tongue, this isn’t unmanageable at all. It smells scarier than it tastes… but it also burns in the gut like high proof whiskey or spicy peppers. I like it. A lot. As the glass progresses, the subtler flavours become more pronounced, presumably because the biter receptors have given up and shut down. That being said, it lacks a certain subtlety and polish… but then again, so do I. So I like it more.

Bottle. Orange blonde, hazy. Grassy herbal aroma with loads of grassy and tropical fruit. Medium to full bodied. Malty sweet, slightly alcoholic flavor with a firm grassy hopbitternes and lots of citrus and tropical fruits. Grassy, herbal citric finish. Very good.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - SEP 29, 2014
Opálos, mézszínű főzet, melynek tetején egy örökkévaló habszelet tetszeleg tört fehér színben, illatai pedig morcos, gyantával és mézzel kevert, ananásszal könnyített, zöld növényekkel fűszerezett likőrök karakterét ontja, összességében igen agresszív aromáról van szó. Krémes és csípős, marcipánosan édes és malátás, szikrázó ízjegyek jellemzik, melyek fölé az alkohol kissé behemót karaktere tornyosul, intenzitásában vetekedve a komló ámokfutásával.

eluosiren (51) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 8, 2014
Literarly, one of the best beer I’ve tasted! The taste is cytrus with banana flavours, it’s sweet, spicy and bitter at the same second! This IPA drives me mad!

zimbo (580) - SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Light orange haze with a light pure white hoppy head . Quite sweet and a bit sticky but good forward hop punch. But gentle enough for the style and high ABV.
