Large lasting off white head with good retention and lacing.Hazy, orange colored brew. Soft nose of tangerines, spices, resin and a lil booze. Body is fully medium, oily with a soft carbonation, coating and pleasent. Big hop flavors, oranges, citrus with some orange nehi, lifesaver type shit goin on, very tasty. Malts are dry and laid back. Finish is dry, bitter and fruity, juicy. Nice fuckin brew! Props to 5K for the bomber! An easy quaffer for a 9%er. Thats the way i like it baby!

Draught. Nice hop kick to this, though the draught I had seemed to have passed its peak freshness, as I found it to lack the great hop bite you’d get with a fresher one. OK, but didn’t overwhelm me.

Pours clear copper with a white head. The aroma has sweet caramel malt, tropical fruit and very heavy on the pineapple. It has a full rich body with soft carbonation. The taste has a nice balance of big tropical hops and sweet candy malt. Nice.

MelvinKalksma (946) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. A large amount of hops, added at every point of brewing, gives this beer a huge hop aroma and flavour. Really unique and refreshing to have such intense hop flavours.

teamsale (179) - Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2016
On tap. Pours a cloudy gold beige with a thin eggshell head and decent lacing. Smells and tastes heavily of fruit, especially apple and apricot. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Nice bitterness, not to much but it doesn’t leave you longing for more either. Solid.

Pours a orangish yellow color with a strong hoppy aroma. Pine and citrus flavors throughout. Slightly dry finish. Piney finish. Reminds me of the olympic national park.

Flarra. Ljus lätt grumlig dryck som doftar mycket friskt av aprikos, tallbarr, grape. Smakar först grape sen mjukare persika sen tallbarr å grape igen. Fan så bra balanserad. Riktigt jävla jävla god fyllig West coast Dipa. Jättegod köp köp

MarcoDL (4151) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of caramel, malt and peach, not a good sign. Watery taste of caramel, malt and peach as well. Where are the hops? Where is the bitterness? This was a bummer.
