Pour is a hazed dark copper color with a fairly tight white head. Nose is biscuity malt and stale grain with a hint of resin hop. Taste follow suit on sweeter, stale bread and grain, sweet caramel, faint hop. This is a very subdued IPA with lots of grainy malt that aren’t very expressive or well pulled together.

Lots of grapefruit, and a bit of tropical fruit and some mint is what I sniff. Balanced taste, restrained hops throughout. Malty notes, mint in the middle, dry finish. Decent.

12oz bottle. Pours golden almost amber with a little white foam. Citrus hops come thru big on the nose, and carry onto the palate. Long finish, Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Kloby’s. Pours clear amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like Sweet, musky, orange, grapefruit, pine, resin, and light caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet nutty hops, orange, light grapefruit, and light caramel.

Golden-orange beer with a frothy head in a tulip glass. Fruity, sweet, mellow aromas. Oranges and passion fruit. Some grains in it too. Citrus hops. In the mouth it is lollypop, sweet, floral flavours first and then the sweetness turns into a wonderful grassy, resin long hoppy bitterness. A special kind of IPA, definitely worth trying!

Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing this! Very great nose with lots of mint, floralness and chewing-gum. The beer starts as it smells - great and aroma-full. Very intense and very great hop-combination. I like it but the mintiness of the Polaris-hops is a bit too much and too pushy. The aftertaste is long, intense - and minty. 14/12/14/13

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
Pours a golden color with a slight haze with a cream colored head. The nose is mild mint, citrus, grain. The taste is as it smells ending dry and crisp. Light+ in body with fine carbonation. The mint sort of throws me off a bit.

Normally I don’t include bottle labels in appearance, but this one deserves mention. The bottle art is awesome. The beer is just as good. Highly recommended
