Bottle. Thanks to Chrisv10. Pours cloudy dark copper with a large frothy and creamy white head and lacings. Exotic and sweet nose. Fruity hops. Flowers, herbs, candy and grapefruit. Really sticky and dry. Smooth. Hoppy dry and bitter finish.

330ml brown bottle. Deep golden colour with a little haze. Creamy white head, sticky foam. Nose has lime, faint spice, hop resins, sweetish notes. Taste has strong citrus, spicy resin hops with lemon and lime notes, base malt sweetness is there but light. Finishes with caramel and lingering bitterness and hop flavors of lemon and grass. Medoum bodied, good smooth texture, very drinkable. Pretty fresh tasting, vibrant hops. Another good beer in this series.

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
330ml bottle pours a hazy orange amber color with a 3 finger creamy white head with good retention and leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light lemony hops and some light malts. Taste is lemon citrus hops with a light malty sweet backbone. Medium body and light carbonation. An easy drinking IPA that I could have a few of in an evening.

bluevegie (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2012
Murky looking dull light brown/orangey body, signature lemony taste seems to arrive late, tropical fruit on the aroma, drank alright just a little disappointed with it.

BenH (2851) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2012
From a bottle. Amber with white head. Aroma is fucked up, like new plastic or rubber. Taste is even more ficked up, some lemon, Ginger and then plastic, rubber, bubblegum, turtle wax, playdough. Taste chemically and artificial. This hop should be avoided for use by breweries. Interesting characteristics though in an experiment like this

Date: February 16, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: AV3 Description: Semi-opaque cloudy brown with nice big and lasting head with some lacing. Aroma is spicy, fruity and some pine. Taste is a little bit of spice with some malt, but lots of lemon and a mild bitter aftertaste. Slight carbonation and light to medium bodied.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Murky, dark orange pour. Small, very dense white head. Nose shows lots of zesty citrus and tangy pine. Fresh apples on the finish. A huge amount of citrus zest and lemon rind in the taste. Piney hop finish. Doesnt balance very well and is a little sharp. Average at best

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - JAN 23, 2012
An orange cloudy beer poured in a half pint. White flowers (Magnolia) + a hint of strawberry on the nose. Medium bodied, well balanced bitterness but too simple on mouth: too heavy flower aromas. Lack of complexity. It smells like a soft powdry fragrance. That said, very interesting to discover the Sorachi hop variety. THanks Mike !

On tap at beer temple. Bold orange w puffy head nose of citrus malts and delectable sorachi hops. Taste is very hoppy. Fruits malts and nicely sweet. Well done.
