4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep golden color out of the bottle with a frothy white head. Lots of attractive lacing on the glass. I could smell the fresh hop nose as soon as I opened the bottle. Lots of orange, pineapple, tropical fruit, pine and a bit of the dank in the nose. Caramel sweetness with red grapefruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, tropical fruit and a dank, earthy finish. This is a very nice hop forward beer.

Golden orange IPA with thick white head.Grassy hoppy smell with citrus and coniferous tree. Taste starts with fruits and ends in a bitter, dry tast.
Good IPA, another good beer from the Jopen Brewery.
