3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy orange color with a large off-white stable head. Aroma is very hoppy with peaches and apricots. Taste is very smooth creamy with fruit and lots of hops. Very well balanced. The fruity apricot flavors balance out the hops nicely, I wouldn’t have guessed this had 300 IBUs! The taste transitions towards more citrus hops and some interesting yeast flavors. Slightly tart towards the finish. The aftertaste lingers for a long time with delicious hops. Overall a great IPA.

Orange coloured beer with a nice big and good holding head. Also sticks nice to the glass. Good mixture of sweetness, a light citrussy sourness, and a decent biterness of the hops. I like this one, specially the smell is good. The earthy-dryness comes trough maybe a bit to hard at the end, but that is something that is not bothering me, but I can imagine some won’t like this beer.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A delicious brew pouring golden with a lasting pancake. Mild aromas but surly hop forward. Medium full nectar with excellent carbonation. This brew is very hoppy, yes indeed. I like the freshness of this brew. Only mildly sweet. I’d say this is a superb, balanced specimen of high hop-idity.

light body, Pale color, sizeable off-white head, slight citrus aromas smells like a tasty IPA. piney/resin notes in the mouth. A tasty drink that isn’t overpowering but does leave a lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy, brownish/burnt orange appearance with a big, off-white head. Fairly earthy, a bit resiny, mild citrus hoppy, a bit spicy, bready malty aroma. Somewhat tangy, pretty strong resiny, citrusy, earthy/organic hoppy, somewhat bitter, lightly toasty malty flavor with a note of booze on the finish along with a fair amount of hop bitterness. A little goopy at the end. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy orangey golden colour with huge frothy white lacing head. Hop aroma has also "orange" notes: mandarin, orange zest, "Waldhonig", resin. A sweet malt part sporting a plethora of impressions from the woods - resin, honey, coniferes - competes with dry, bitter, biting, soapy hop taste. An Imperial IPA with a prevalence on the sweet malty side as well as on the dry to soapy hoppy side, compared to examples emphasizing the dark fruit malt and the fresh citrus fruit or grassy hop side.
