2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Slightly saturated yellow, cloudy, citraic, with an enormous head.
First impression is this being a pils, course of the german hops, but cascade turns the image around, adds floral, hoppy aromas, making this actual an IPA. Wheat and hints of pine are still stronger than the usual fruity aromas, I would expect of a beer like this.
Actually, at first glance I got the feeling of drinking a "Pils", but after a short while the aroma hop bitterness kicks in. Wheat freshness turns into a wet hoppiness, with a decent malt backbone. Flavors of mango and orange are recognizable, going along with rich wheat impressions, getting overwhelmed by an upcoming hop-bitterness in the end. Carbonation is pretty present, adding a metallic flavor to the beer, without being distractive, but adding a metallic flavor to the beer.
The problem I got with this beer is, that both flavors, wheat and bitterness, do not go well within this beer, it creates a contrast which isn’t balanced by blending together.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale cloudy in the glass, thick white head. The nose is extremely grassy and floral. The beer starts grassy, floral and only slightly malty. Slightly sourish - probably due to the extreme hop-blast. The bitterness is moderate, in the end nicely dryer, but still floral and fresh!
--> Great hoppy Pale Ale! I like it! --> 13/12/13/13

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske, 33 cl, købt i Craft Beer Store, Hamburg. Uklar lys gylden med et lavt hvidt skum. Sødladen humle-aroma. Citrus. Græs. Savner lidt krop. Citronvand. Syrlig. Men for sød. God bitterhed. Ikke ligefrem incredible.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. BB 7/7/14. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head.
The aroma is pineapple, tropical fruits, some sweetness, hops and a tiny bit of bitterness. Absolutely delicious. The flavour is very tasty with tropical fruits, pine and mild resin... and some bitterness, sweetness and some malty sweetness. I’m in paradise... wait... no... I’m not... it’s watery...

IPA davvero incredibile, caratterizzata da un’aroma intensissimo di luppoli fruttati, soprattutto pompelmo. Idem per quanto riguarda il gusto: frutta tropicale, pompelmo, con un retrogusto floreale e un amaro degno di questo nome, sia all’impatto che nella persistenza sul palato.

Slightly hazy pale golden color, tall white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus and some grain. Citrus, tropical fruit, some light malt sweetness ending dry with mild bitterness. Light body with carbonation that is lower than average but as some prickle. This is a pretty nice drinking pale ale!
