Damn tasty beer. Been waiting for this beer for a while so there was some hype attached to it for me. Huge hop aroma. Nice malt backbone. Caramel character and orange hop flavor. Very balanced as expected. Not super bitter. Tasty and balanced.

Pours golden with an off white diminishing head, aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, cookie, straw, heavily hopped flavour with a mildly acidic yet bitter aftertaste, full bodied IPA.

AndresTM (339) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
A burnt orange drink reeking of fruity, citrusy hops, strawberry preserves, apricots, pine, grapefruit, orange peel, and rosemary crackers. Oily mouthfeel, with a medium body and tame but sustained carbonation. The taste is bitter, initially fruit sweet, but leaning dry and salty towards the end. The aftertaste is dry, herbal, and earthy. It commands your attention without being aggressive and runs a nice spectrum of hop flavors. Delightful.

Cloudy light amber color. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A somewhat sweet and tart hoppy taste. Only a little bit of a hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrew_drinks (197) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 21, 2015
Can from the brewery, poured into snifter at home. Deep amber, thin white head. Aroma of orange oil, some pine, skunky dank hops. Super drinkable despite the ABV, medium carbonation, thick hop oils on the palate then washed away by the dry finish. Flavour is big citrus and pine, orange peel, pith, grapefruit, burnt caramel mixed with breakfast juice. Bitter Seville orange marmalade, lots of different layers of hop flavour. Bitter, candied peel finish, nice and dry. Superb.
