Pours a clear light orange. Smells of pine, grapefruit. Taste is excellent balance of assertive hop bitterness and malt sweetness. I get orange, lime, caramel, toffee, pine. Very solid west coast IPA; among the best widely available.

Aroma: citrus and herbs, something like mango and pine with heather. Appearance: golden color and thin white head. Taste: high bitterness (citrus and pine), some citrus notes, quite dry and one-dimensional. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Quite average, nothing special.

Stopped for a beer and a snack after a short hike and was rewarded with this beer! It was a great surprise. Just a hint of an aftertaste, but I think that adds to it’s character.

Appearance - golden Aroma - Candy Orange citrus pine aroma. Taste - Grapefruit, orange, citrus, some malt presence, slightly spicy. Aftertaste - lingering bitterness, a bit spicy, some spice sweetness and grapefruit. Some alcohol as it warms. Nice refreshing IPA, good mouthfeel, delicious. Keep going back for more, if only it was cheaper in NZ!

Linnet (1303) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Caramel, spicy, grapefruit, pineapple, toffee, alcohol, resin, more malt driven than expected. Hazy golden colour, medium white head, lots of lacing. heavy sweetness, very bitter, but the malts actually overpowers the hops a bit. full body, creamy, average carbonation, bitter, and warming finish. Well made.

MiP (14446) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle, 7.5%. Good fruity aroma, caramel and mango. Cloudy dark golden colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour has a very pleasant caramelly and fruity hop note followed by a distinct but mellow and clean bitterness. A great beer.

Bottle thanks to gription79. Poured to snifter. Aroma is a punch of grapefruit followed by orange and lemon. Crystal clear dark yellow pour with a medium sized white head. Excellent lacing. Taste is initially bitter followed by a nice clean dose of hop flavors of orange and mango. Clean dry crisp finish. Hellagood
