Less hops than you’d think you should be getting, and a yeasty overnote that overshadows it, with a sweetness that is also a bit confusing. Less bitter and more sweet isn’t a bad thing, this is a nice beer to drink but isn’t doing the IPA thing a justice.

Rewelacyjna IPA. Szacun za wygląd. Świetna barwa, mętne, lekki osad drożdżowy i nieśmiertelna piana. Aromat fajny, ale nikły - mógłby być wyraźniejszy. W smaku bardzo przyjemnie, choć goryczka mogłaby być wyższa. Mimo wszystko piwo jest rewelacyjne. Polecam!

Rating #1173 - 11.7.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Clear golden pour. Aroma of toasty Maris otter, and a ton of grapefruity citrus aromatics from the Cascade. Palate is bold - 7.5% - medium-high alcohol - light toffee, roast notes, hint of smoke - hop notes of grapefruit - loads of bitterness. This may be the best IPA I’ve ever tasted.

Hazy orange amber, stable offwhite froth. Fruity aroma, grapefruit and pine, notes of caramel malt. Strong bitter flavour, more sweet grapefruit, piney bitterness and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel with solid bitter bite. Carbonation is barely right to balance the sweet stickyness.

From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Piney hop aroma relased as soon as I took the cap off. Pours hazy amber with very little head and a few clumps of yeast sediment. Nice bitter palate with a bit of spice. En god ol.

Large off-white head to this golden orange beer. Aroma is full of citrusy and tropical fruits, oranges, passion fruit and some grape which is very intense, piney hops and pine sap. The bitterness is huge in this beer but not over the top thanks to the good malty body to this beer and helps to make it a really big full-bodied juicy IPA. Cascade hops is very overpowering which gives the beer it’s long after-taste of grapefruit and herbs.

IPA lige efter min smag!! Meget aromatisk, rigtig god balance i smagen. Hvorfor er der ikke flere der laver den slags øl?! Mandarin, grapefrugt, roser, korn, basilikum, tyggegummi. En god tyk konsistens der fylder munden. Sød og bitter. Lang eftersmag. Godt skum. (Den får ikke absolut topkarakterer, men "kun" 19, da der er en snert af alkohol i smagen. Jeg forestiller mig en perfekt øl med lidt mindre alkoholprocent og endnu rigere humlearoma)
