mzaar (2842) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
On tap @ The Black Sheep, Dublin. Rather weak aroma for being a IPA, but the tropical fruits and floral notes are noticeable. Tastes better, and more: Caramel, grape, resin and peach. High bitterness, lacks in sweetness.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013
The head is robust, the body cloudy and golden. It smells malty, bitter, hoppy. The taste is hoppy, intensive, bitter, a bit hay-grassy-bitter, less fruity. Ok, I love bitterness but this IPA could have a bit more fruitiness in my opinion. Still good. 13/11/10/11/-/11

Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 On tap at the black sheep in Dublin. Fruity aroma and taste. A little bit bitter. I recommend if you like IPA . N
