3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light hazy orange/amber with a thick good lacing foamy off white head. Delicisious peachy and citrusy nose with light pinewood and onion. Aroma follows the nose though the piney notes are more dominating, still lots of citrus and onion with some light green herbal notes . Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long medium bitter finish. Great IPA hop.

Sampled at the London Craft Beer Festival. Pours cloudy, golden-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Bready stuff with some orange, mild pine. Pretty sweet. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. A bit of juicy citrus to finish, with more bready malts. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from ABC Beers The Hague. Pours clear copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, soap and floral. Taste is.... odd. Bitter, but some sourness aswell. Could be infected. Weird funky soapy flavour. Not good at all. Some peach is there aswell, but yeah, peach is not my favourite fruit... ahem. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper. Soapy, lightly roasted malts, some lychee, lime, perfume, flowery. Taste is sweet with better kicks at start and finish. Bit wild. Fizzy carbonation. Overall not bad, but slightly too soapy and chemical tasting for me.

33cl bottle from ABCbeers.
Thick white head. Hoppy aroma. Hazy light amber pour. refreshing bitterness but not hoppy enough. Nice and drinkable though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared thanks to deanso. Aroma is malty, caramel, light grapefruit and grassy but I think it’s past it’s best and not fresh enough. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky brownish copper with massive off white head a moderate amount of lace. Aroma is citrus, orange, tangerine, and caramel. Flavour is grapefruit, resin, a medium bitterness that lingers into the after taste, sweet caramel malts that try to balance the high alpha acids of the summit hops(kinda works) and a bit tropical fruity though not very distinctive. Enjoyable and a good showcasing of the hop!

Cuivrée trouble, col beige.
Garde un bouquet légèrement renfermé, houblonné vert sur des pointes fruitées.
Palais est houblonné, fruité modéré orangée et citronné assez sec en fin de bouche, et herbacé. Le tout présente un léger côté levure renfermé en fin de bouche qui accompagne bien le houblon.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a murky brown color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and herbs with some light chocolate. Taste is a light chocolate malty sweetness with a bold citrus and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the palate. A decent IPA that I recommend others to try.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s with a heavy heart that I score this way. Seems to me that the hops are oxidized. Served at a good temperature with a giant, cream colored, foamy, frothy, very long lasting head and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber copper. Aroma is malt, oak, caramel, wet cardboard? Flavor’s are similar to nose with cashed hop up front, followed by sweet malt. Hop isn’t totally gone, still has a bit of freshness. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, short lived, leaves me yearning for a fresh one.
