On tap at Express de Lyon. Hazy golden, creamy white head. Caramel and pine aroma. Spicy rye bread flavours, balanced by piney hop bitterness. Worth loving.

jinroh (493) - ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours nice orange, clear and clean, small head. Aroma is sweetish, some fruity hops but not too hoppy nor bitter. Nice. Sweet ripen fruits, feels light. Taste is also similar, sweet and soft, fruity hops. Not overly dry but also not too murky. Feels as it has ripen peaches. Decent brew.

BlazerT (101) - POLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Teku glass. Bottle. Amber/orange like with thin to medium, semi-densed, white head, which dissapears fast. Poor lacing. Aroma of caramel and little toasty, in the background maybe honey. Hops aroma is not so noticable mainly some rasin and floral aroma. The taste in the beginning sweet and mild, but quickly it comes with medium bitterness. It becomes most intensed in the middle of degustation with nice hoppy aftertaste. Light to medium body, thin texture, medium carbonation. Finish is bitter and dry. In overall solid IPA, little bit too mild because. It could be nicer if the aroma is more intense.

Hop malt cookie aroma. Murky Amber colour good head and lacing. Cookie malt sweet hop flavour. Smooth lingering palate. Mikkeller bar Bangkok.
