12 oz. bottle. pours a clear light amber with a smallish white head, fading to a ring around the glass with decent lacing throughout. aroma of grapefruit, some orange and pine. flavor has some sticky malt sweetness, but this one has a nice lingering bitterness through-out. low carbonation, just enough to bring it all together. finding a beer like this is why I still enjoy trying new ( to me ) and untried beers. very nice IPA!

Farbe hell bis goldig, trüb. Geruch seltsam, leicht citronig, weißer Traubensaft. Vollmundigkeit gut ausbalanciert, aber sehr, sehr bitter. Ich find’s zu nachhängend.

Bottle 355ml kindly shared by Calisky, a clear copper beer with low head. Nose is intense on hops resin, mango, exotic fruits, touch of coconut oil. Aroma is on hops resin, caramel, honey, pine, mango, almond, apple, quite sweet, robust body, coconut oil, good bitterness especially on aftertaste. Good stuff.
