Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

tricksta_p (2920) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, orange, pine resin, malt biscuit, some caramel, grapefruit, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a dry generous hoppy bitter finish. A bit boozy, especially towards the end. Body is medium to full. Rich and heavy IIPA, lots of citrus with a big bittersweet flavour.

SeniorZozo (841) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2016
Aroma is nice floral hops, some malts and a touch of citrus. Taste matches the aroma. Floral hops make this flowery but in a good way.

Nice Centennial hop flavor profile. Citrusy but not very piney. Weak nose but a great body and good finish.

jbeatty (1239) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle, 06/26/2012. Thanks to LtDan the man. Light, cloudy copper pour, thin white head doesn’t last long, spotty lacing. Dank, herbal hops, orange citrus, caramel malts heavy, not your typical Cali IPA profile. Smooth citrusy hops, subtle pine edge, almost blending in with caramel backbone, bitterness fighting back in the finish. Medium resinous body, expansive almost like a barley wine. Not the aggressive IIPA offering one might expect, an interesting change-up.

mjg74 (2945) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Bomber from Casa De Oro. Strongly hopped grapefruit nose, with a toch of pine. Good hop presence. Good amount of maltiness in the finish. A little graininess as well. Alcohol is well hidden. Solid little sipper. Refreshing on a muggy day.
