wvhoran (239) - Tasmania, - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Deep hazy orange with a large creamy off-white head. The aroma is fresh and fruity with lots of dank hop notes, resinous, fruity, a little caramel malt. The flavour is very fruity with lots of ’orange’ fruits (peaches, orange, mango, apricot) and floral notes. Resinous hop oils. Delicious. This is so good. I am happy to be alive.

Couleur ambré, déclinaison orange, un couché de soleil sur l’ouest... c’est beau...très trouble! Mousse absente comme toute bonne IPA. Le pamplemousse, les herbes se ribambelle entre aneth, fenouil, grain de coriandre ... une attaque poivré au début. On repart sur le gazon coupé, le foin des champs, un brin fermie. En fait c’est une culture maraichère... céleri-rave ??? Ben oui, céleri-rave, légumes racines et rutabaga. On appelle ça anisé et terreuse,, cette bière. On mâche et la mousse reste ultra-discrète. Les amers s’installent en milieu et fin de langue. Bien placé quoi!! La longueur caramel et réduite de la bière s’amplifie et installe la texture, l’allonge ... au final la bouche est magnifique, rafraîchissante, spectaculaire!. Campari Soda SVP! Très belle IPA. Merci bonsoir!

_angst_ (2773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours murky orangish brown with a small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small sticky trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, grapes, overripe gooseberries, moist grass, pine needles, orange zest, lemon zest, alcohol and diesel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, grapes, diesel, gooseberries, resin, pine needles, moist grass, orange zest, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky sweet, oily bitter, slightly astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, pineapple, grapes, diesel, chives, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and alcohol. Better hop profile than the rest in this series but the base beer is still too sticky for me...
