Orange to light brown body, perfect white head. Big on tropical fruits, mango, orange peel, solid bready base, some funk and a bit grassy. Fatty, full body that provides an amazing background for the full bitterness. Reveals the quite high alcohol percentage very well. Delicious! (At The BeerTemple)

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.
