The body on this one is not as complex as on other IPAs I like more. The finish has almost a touch of mint to it. An average GOOD IPA....but nothing terrific.

0.355 l bottle at ’Food Lovers’ (Dortmund), best before June 2017. Sweetish, very fruity, resiny and slightly grassy aroma of orange, grapefruit, tangerine and some pine. A bit sweetish, slightly bitter, very fruity and a bit resiny taste of mango, orange, grapefruit and some pine, followed by a medium long, rather bitter, resiny and dry finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick off-white head. Aroma is mostly pine hops to me. Medium body, taste is good balance between the hops and malt, a little bit of caramel in the mix as well. Dry finish. Great!

Pours golden with a fluffy head. A great malty aroma. A very malty ipa. I like it a lot but I’m not sure everyone would.
