Pours light orange and hazy with a medium foam head.
Smells burnt rubber, heavy flower aromas and malt.
In mouth, a Sorachi-like hop flavour makes it particular but not balanced.
Great beer, but not enthusiastic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium, yellowish head over fully hazy orange-yelllow beer. Soapy nose, pine, oxydated malts. IPA??? Oxydation appearing out of the hoppy bitterness. Seems as if crude hops were used, little aroma, all bitterness. Biscuit. Spritzy, even acidic impression; very slick, light to medium bodied. Pretty disappointing. Prematurely aged?

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of rasins, pineapple and maybe some oak. Flavour is citrus and pineapple. Very bitter aftertaste, in a good way. It’s got a quite sharp carbonation. Overall a good IPA, but not up with the best of the best.
