Hazy gold, lots of floating yeast. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor of grapefuit, pine, spicy and resinous hops. Pretty nice, nothing crazy though.

Bottle at home. Almost clear light amber with big white head. Sweet toasted malts, caramel malts, grassy/weedy hops, light resin, sweetened tea, grapefruit, some floral notes, yeasty. Medium sweet and bitter. Medium body with malty slick base and some grainy texture. Long bittersweet caramel finish. Soft carbonation.

I was totally surprised by this one. Floral, grape-fruity. An absolute delight to drink. Solid IPA.

MarkoNm (2256) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 18, 2016
Pours a very hazy pale yellow orange, topped with a fairly small and non lasting head. Lemony aroma, some tangerine - soury fruity notes basically with some maltiness in the back. Just a hint of sweetness upfront, followed by a decent hoppy bitterness, herbal quality. Going into a lasting aftertaste. Fairly light, nice but perhaps a bit too herbal.

Hazy golden color with tiny white head. Aroma of hops, sweet fruit. Love the aroma! Taste is well balanced with sweet and bitter finish. Very good IPA.

Cunningham (6733) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 3, 2016
Golden color with a fine white head. Ok hoppy aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Malty, grapefruit, pine and mild topical flavor.

iratebeer_de (2) - - MAR 3, 2016 does not count
It’s a bitter-hopy IPA. It looks very nice and smells fruity in contrast to the bitter tast. (More: http://iratebier.de/index.php/2016/03/03/hopfensto

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Amertume désagréable bien marquée comme sa cousine quad hop. Arrière goût métallique.
