Poured from a bomber, I love the floral hops aroma. The appearance is very shadowy. It tastes great. I am a great IPA fan, but I didn't expect this one to taste so good. Now I have to look for more!

MoritzF (8639) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2015
(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruity and mildly piney hoppy aroma with notes of pineapples, tangerine, zests and a tinge of spruce, backed by a delicately caramelly malty touch. Moderately bitter flavor with a rounded malty sweetness in the background, medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Balanced (cara-)malty base with a cornucopia of hoppy flavours, lingering into the dry-ish and lasting bitter-sweet finish. Fresh and rounded IPA, superb. 22.I.15

Reimer96 (1391) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a clear orangish copper with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, caramel and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, pine and balance from the sweet pale malts... Very easy to drink for a 7.5 ipa and an awesome dry finish.

Ce nez houblonné très très frais ! En bouche, de la mangue un peu trop mure ... C’est un truc très direct mais très agréable aussi ... Une IPA avec du corps, en somme !

LaViolette (111) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Very nice mango, coconut, hoppy nose. Nice orange, hazy colour. Good IPA taste, quite classic but very good for sure. Bitterness is perfect.Maybe a little light for me, 8.5 would suit better.

Color oro y carbonatacion media. 100% IPA americana, con una potente parte de fruta fresca (lichi, guayaba) y notas de pimienta. Boca seca y poderosa, de enorme equilibrio, con gran textura y precioso final, todo amargor fino y lupulo fresco.
