On draught at Hair of the Dog. An intriguing greyish golden color. Smells of grassy and citrusy hops. Hops come through first on the palate, with a spicy citrus sweetness at the end. One of my favorite double IPAs.

650ml brown bottle. Summer 2016 release. Cloudy golden with a short creamy white head. Thin spotty lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and some malt sweetness. Taste has thick grains, rye, grapefruit and general citrus. Pithy grapefruit finish with sweet malts lingering. Some alcohol and a lot of lasting bitterness. Medium body with a creamy carbonation. Fresh, hoppy, very satisfying.

Marko (4953) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2016
Grazie mille, Albertoooo! Poured a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma... dried grapes, citric hoppiness, sweet maltiness reminiscent of crystal. Citric taste, lemon & peach ice-tea mix, sweetish, soft, light tropical touch, very full malty backbone, overly so perhaps, eating up the 80 IBU like they arenít there. Interesting - really not my type of IPA or Double IPA, but I can respect it. And Iím really glad Iíve tried it!

At the HofD brewery in Portland-USA. On tap. Bright gold hazy pour, a bit dark with a medium adhesive foam. Nose: orange fresh juice, lemon skin, some sweet fruitiness. Fantastic. Mouth: just lovely! Rich alcohol, mild sweet notes, crispy medium dry!
