Reddish-brown pour from tap. Mild, floral aroma, bitter forward but balanced. Not especially memorable but a balanced and pleasant IPA. Far too many interesting IPAs to compete with here. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? no.

Versa di un bel colore ambrato, con leggera schiuma cremosa. Aroma di luppolo che definirei floreale. Il sapore un po di malto e caramello,In bocca asciutta e con un poco di amarezza,Il finale lungo. Discreta...la definirei decisamente tropicale!

kraddel (5726) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2016
Pours clear blonde, OK white head. Smell is dry, rather malty, very mildly bitter, hints of aromatic hops. Taste is sharp, very grainy, bit bitter. not much aroma. the aftertaste is quite good ( a very nice blended taste of bitterness and hops ) but its unintense. The taste itself is quite unintence too, very simple, and not nearly as aromatic as I had hoped. Ok beer, but certainly nothing more, especially in its style.

MelvinKalksma (693) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2016

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

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white head.

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

Overall:
This beer is really balanced with a fruity dryhopped flavour. Could have been more intense and less simple however.
