Really hazy orange color with a rich frothy off white head. Hoppy aroma with a load of sweet oranges and caramel. Flavor is rich and full of grapefruit hoppiness with a complex addition of dried fruit, pineneedles and caramel malt. Chewy mouthfeel with some sugar stickiness.

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)

Unglaublich tolles, malziges IPA mit langanhaltenden Hiopfen Aromen und toller Bitterkeit. Wunderschönes erscheinungsbild von trübem Caramel mit dichtem Schaum.

rotaman14 (365) - Germany, lives in Vilnius, LT, - AUG 21, 2015
Hazy orange body, small white head with decent lacing. Strong aroma of sweet tropical fruits (mango, fresh banana, grapefruit) and chilli. Taste is very bitter at first, then extremely spicy (chilli again), lasting spicy aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation. An intense and very tasty brew.

Hazy golden/orange, cream head American hops, citruses, pink grapefruit, hint of caramel/honey feels thick, light butterscotch, citruses, red orange and pink grapefruit Long bitter finish and a quite long astringency (due to alcohol?) Very good and interesting IPA

Flaska i Oslo. Trevlig balanserad doft. Smaken en fruktig balanserad ipa. Det som kommer till sist dvs. eftersmaken är behaglig o god. En bra ipa!

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with a foamy head. Wonderful aroma: Tropical fruits, grapefruit and citrus. Fruity, bitter flavour with long bitter finish that stays in your mouth. Perfect IPA, my favourite beer
