Enjoyed at NoogFest III. Nice amber with a light white head and a semi-haze appearance. Lightly floral hop aroma with some grassiness. Subtle hops with citrus peal flavor. Decent malt caramel body holding it up. Very well balanced. Body is medium and creamy.

An orange to amber appearance with a herbal, pine, and orange aroma. This one was slightly bitter with some lemons, pine, and oranges present. A milder IPA certainly not a hop bomb but it was very well balanced. A good IPA.

Clear orange, no head. Smells like citrus - grapefruit with some tart lemon mixed in. Hops dominate the flavor, but there is also a nice caramel and toffee not to balanceit out a little. Citrusy, hoppy finish.

[bottle] Amber colour. Large head. Aroma is pure hop-juice; dried fruit, resin, pine, you know it, the usual IPA-stuff. Flavour is more resinous, pine-y hops. The bitterness lasts "forever". A great IPA for all the hop-heads out there (including me).

Bottle thansk to bierkonig, garths shack of party tasting of jolly ipa’s. Aroma is pine, citrus, grapefruit, limey bitterness. Taste is, bitter hops attack the tongue, citrus caramel base, grassy finish though not too long a finish making it super drinkable. If only i could get more of this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light golden amber colour with a fast diminishing head. Aroma is very citrusy with conifer trees, grapefruit and earthy tones. The taste is grassy hops, sour lime pie, tart kiwi with a lot of flavour from hops. The bitter mouthfeel stems to the the basck of the throat giving a typical dry bitter ipa finish. Sharp and crisp. Very nice

Thanks for sharing this one Alex (Sick_boy282). Pours with a Golden-orange body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet very hoppy with nice piney notes, a touch of fruity esters adn a light grapefruit note. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with some fruity esters, and a hint of grapefruit and pine from the hops. It’s a touch medicinal. Medium bodied, slightly warming and a bit dry.
