Cor laranja escura, com espuma de Bia formação e persistência. Aroma cítrico, de caramelo, frutas amarelas. No sabor, um amargor cítrico, herbal, depois com médio dulçor, com final seco e amargor com media persistência. Muito boa.

Thanks to cards04 for this one. Mango, peach, and musk melon on the nose. A little cloudy, amber in color, and a thin head. Not buying into the sweet advertisement of the malt profile but good body is supported well. Good balance with the tropical hops taking a slight lead. Finish leaves some resin remnants. Like this.

Awesome IPA. Pours deeper orange than most with a small white head that dissolves into some lace and a small ring. Prominent citrus and floral hop aromas. Taste is fruity-bittersweet with a dominant grapefruit note, which does not devolve into too strong astringency. Plentiful, fine carbonation. Delicious.

My Bottom Line:
Butterscotch-like sweetness grounds citrusy and resinous hops in this expressive IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty amber.
-The mouthfeel is hefty due to the caramelly residual sugars.
-Bitterness is quite resinous and woodsy.
-If the caramel flavors were more restrained, this would have been more enjoyable (to me).
On tap at The Saint Tavern, Toronto.

10 ml sample at Öl- och whiskymässan Göteborg. Orange with big white head. Citra hops in the smell. Taste is citrus and more axotic fuits and grapefruit. Medium body medium bitterness. Very well balanced and using my favourite hops, nice!
