On tap @ Apex.
Hazy golden body with a good amount of white head. Huge floral hop punch in the nose with mango - pungent as the beer’s name implies. Flavor is the same with very little bitterness and an odd aftertaste.

Pours a really hazy copper-amber with a huge, puffy, bubbly white head. Aroma is of citrus, resin, lemon, floral. Nice dry hop flavor, citrus, some resin, a little alcohol bite. Pretty good overall.

Bottled. Orangeish amber colour, small off-white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, floral and juicy hops with quite big bitterness. Flavour is quite similar with some sweet maltyneess giving it a good body.

Bottle from recent Chicago trip, Westlake Liquors. Pours, even for me, monstrous amount of foam. Bottle was a foamer. Neutralized aroma through the perfumed Sauvign hops, let’s call it a neutral aroma. Tingling yet creamy mouthfeel of hops and malt. Not bad to drink, bit took some getting used to.

Draft at CK. Hazy light amber pour. Nose and flavor remind me more of a pale ale, with a light but lovely Nelson Sauvin nose of melon, grapefruit, touches of white wine, and a bit of malt balance. High carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Quite decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brewed at De Molen, pours a cloudy dark orange, montrous white tiny bubbled head, thickest lacing you can have on a beer. Aromas and taste are kinda weird, wondering how fresh it was but alot of these denmark/norway ipas never survive the trip or their hops just pale in comparison to the stoner growers on the west coast. Bitter wet hop smell, stale basement. Aftertaste is pleasent but regular taste is too bitter/spicy. Medicin filled and weird.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tight tangy hop nose with murky orange body. Creamy malt builds a comfortable palate platform for a sharp hop spike. Crisp grasp finish. (Bottle, Vino, Edinburgh)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber coulored with a big foamy head. Lots of Nelson Sauvin on the nose. Citrus, kiwi, gooseberry, rubard, white grapes. Slighlty oily, but fresh, tart, dry and medium bitter. But Cats piss? Isn’t that more Simcoe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is yeast and tropical fruit. The flavor is tropical fruit, hops and a very dry finish. Not as much hops or tropical fruit as expected, this seemed to have a very long dry finish to it. It was interesting, although not as much flavor as I’d like.
