Shared with wim at wim’s place. Hazy light orange colored beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Nice hopped floral aroma. Full sparkling and slightly creamed palate. Finish is fruited hopped bitter ending a bit dry bitter. Nice one!

On tap at Moeder Lambic. Clear gold pour with thick white head. Aroma is hoppy, really tropical, perfumey, pretty typical nelson aroma, fruity tropical notes, white wine. Taste is slightly bitter, fruity, I actually found the hop flavor a bit dull in this one, which is not something I was expecting from this brewery. Maybe it was old. Very easy drinking, but nothing to write home about.

Bouteille. Une Ipa de belle apparence, nez interessant rappelant le Yuzu citron mandarine, une bonne Ipa, avec juste ce qu’il faut d’amertume, bien faite mais un peu trop classique manque de caracteres/ palettes aromatique.

CanCrusher (642) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Muddy, medium brown colour with large, off-white head, flat carbonation and many floating partucles. Aroma of tangerine and slightly grapefruit and spicy herbs. Light acidic start with some fruittness and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily (but dry texture), soft carbonation. Good, balanced IPA, withou anything outstanding...

Kita (1074) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with CanCrusher. Murky ocher color with medium creamy off-white head and huge amount of residue traces floating. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit and some herbs. Taste starts refreshing fruity with sweet cough syrup following, supported with solid malty backbone and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, slick and dry texture and average carbonation in palate. Very close to excellent...

mcberko (6438) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
330mL bottle at Brewberry, pours a dirty dark brownish orange with a medium beige head. Nose is very earthy, with lots of earthy hops, musty notes, and light floral notes – very dirty smelling. Flavour matches accordingly, with a super filthy, earthy hop quality that dominates. Very harsh astringency as well on the finish, though it becomes more palatable with each additional sip. This is a filthy one. Not the most drinkable IPA, but it’s decent enough.

Clear dark orange with small lacing white foam head. Aroma is hoppy, with sweet notes present. Nice bitter taste, some orange tones. Good aftertaste. (Velp 201404)

Aroma: fruity hops, citrus fruits, hints of yeast. Appearance: hazy pale gold, medium white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: lovely bitters intensifying, citrus hops, flowers, sweets in the average-ling finish. Overall: very decent IPA, nice palate. Pint at Les Trois 8, Paris.
