Pours yellowish orange with a massive foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, zesty fruits, citrus and orange peel. Taste is grassy, bready and malty with notes of earthy fruity notes and citrus. Finish is zesty, stingy and hoppy with grassy and earthy notes. Nice IPA with German hops.

Taste is very light sweet and medium bitter with notes of pineapple, bubble gum, citrus, bread, banana and lemon peel. More estery in the taste. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent IPA.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle pours with a gold body that has a slight haze and supports a nice white head. The aroma offers up malt sweetened hard orange candy, a sweet earthy lime hard candy and a light floral hop note. Interesting, it is on the light side but the various facets are intriguing. Wow, the flavor is malt sweetened juicy citrus goodness that has a great load of flavor and only a moderate level of hop bitterness. It seems to have a mix of clementine, tangerine and orange with a light degree of malt sweetness and a thin ribbon of slightly roasted malts well off in the background. These flavors go very well together. Yet another great tasting brew from this brewery. Yes!

Pours medium golden with a creamy white head. Nice hop aroma - you wouldn’t think this was a German beer. Pleasantly bitter, would drink again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light golden color with large white head. Grassy aroma. Taste is very citrusy with grapefruit and lemon. It’s hoppy alright, but there’s no variation in the flavours, it’s just citrus. Would really benefit from a different mix of hop varieties. Good carbonation.

Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours cloudy pale amber colored with huge creamy white head. Smells deliciously hoppy and fruity, with lots of grapefruit and citrus. Starts with citrussy hops, paired with lots of pine wood, spruce and caramel malts. Middle part is still citrus fruity, grassy, with spruce and resin. Goes into a floral hoppy, fruity and caramelly finish with some pine wood. Outstanding german IPA!!

Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bb 14/03/14
Hazy blond color with medium sized head. Strong aroma, earthy, manure, pungent. Smooth mouthfeel; clean flavor, with strong bitterness, and strong manure character, a bit grassy; balanced overall, and very thirstquenching. Very fresh too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Misty golden, light brown body and frothy off white head. Rich citrus and pine hops. Also a bit soapy though. Like, crisp body, fitting carbonation. Bit soapy but also fresh citrus fruit and solid bitterness. Won’t be for everyone, it’s quite soapy, but I like the light fresh appeal. (33cl bottle from Wasana’s Getranken Oase)
