Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - grapefruit and orange. Taste - more of the same with lots of hope resin. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - it doesn’t necessarily hit that many high notes but it’s very balanced.

Strykzone (5626) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Some white haze in this golden beer. Less than a finger of off white foam. A pleasant aroma of tropical fruit and a little caramel. That tropical fruit is tasted with pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Some grapefruit. Some sharpness, bitterness, earthiness, floral. A very complex hop profile. I taste a little pine which is something my taste buds rarely get. So there must be a lot of it. This is just plain ol’ good. I like everything in it.

hayduke (3778) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. It poured an orange color with a medium sized off-white head. Good lacing. Nose is tropical fruit and I can detect tangerine, mango and a hint of pineapple. Medium plus body and a resinous sticky mouth feel. Flavor is complex and full of fruit flavors including what is in the aroma... tangerine, mango pineapple but I also get berries, flowers, and pear. Just a little bit of citrus. Long dry bitter finish. A very nice and quite tasty beer.

Shared bottle. Pours is clouudy golden with thick white head that doesn’t last long. Spicy and sweet aroma of orange, orange peel, tangerine and grapefruit. Taste is light to medium sweet, moderate bitter, citrusy fresh. Medium body, thin to creamy texture, long bitter finish. Refreshing.

Excalibur123 (282) - Soria, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2015
Color amarillo oro con media cabeza de espuma de baja retención, aunque perdura un fino cerco en el vaso; aromas a lúpulo, débil cítrico, galleta y flores; en boca entrada fácil con ligero amargor que torna algo más fuerte en el retrogusto, cuerpo ligero con carbónico medio; cerveza correcta y fácil de beber pero que no ofrece matices destacables.

nihtila (1833) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2015

Kita (1502) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy amber color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of passion fruit, lemon, grapefruit, pine and ripe fruits. Taste starts moderate sweet caramelly and resinous, follows by citric acidity, spicy mouthfeel and grassy bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. True north coast IPA, refreshing and hoppy...

JefVerstraete (2143) - Ghent, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Sample @ Gents bierfestival 2015. Hazy amber colour, medium carbonation. Sweet nose of tropical fruit. Nice aroma, weak mouthfeel, bit thin and watery but refreshing and easy drinkable. Sweet with notes of caramel. Not the best IPA but ok.

rafael52 (343) - Łódź, POLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Kolor: złoty, lekko pomarańczowy, zmętniony.
Piana: średnio obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, w miarę trwała, zdobi szkło.
Zapach: na pierwszym planie zioła oraz żywice, jest też karmel, ale całkiem przyjemny, w głębi trochę cytrusów i tropików.
Smak: delikatna słodowość, trochę karmelowej słodyczy, trochę nut chmielowych, żywice, zioła, goryczka średnia, przyjemna, kojarząca się ze świeżą skórką cytrusów. Deklarowanego 70 IBU raczej nie czuć.
Wysycenie: średnie.
