Steely (241) - , - APR 20, 2011
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.

Mr_Pink_152 (664) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
500ml bottle from Hopology, Nottingham. Hazy deep amber colour with a lasting foamy head. Lots of hops in the aroma. And a flavour of citrus hops, that lingers.

Garrold (1245) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy orange. Thin, sticky, white head. Light, fusty, in the bin, grapefruit rind. Malt is fusty, too. Taste is light, toffee sweet. Light bitter. Lovely, oily, juicy palate. Finishes pithy bitter, with more of the fust, and a light dryness. Very nice, although I could fancy more chewy sweetness.

Excellent! Beautiful IPA, just can’t find anything wrong with this. Belongs next to the very best IPAs, although strong as a DIPA. Lovely aroma, looks and smell.

Aroma: grapefruit, citrus, alcohol; Appearance: hazy orange, medium head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, light body, soft carbonation, oily texture Ipa with strong grapefruit aromas and slightly too obvious alcoholic taste. Still pleasantly drinkable and not too astringent.

Humlehode (82) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Pours amber, slightly cloudy, with quickly dissipating head. A LOT of pine in the aroma, some citrus, grapefruit and caramel. Think it could have been better balanced in terms of hop aroma/flavour. Nice bitterness and otherwise a good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 0.5l. Kolor bursztynowy, bardzo ładna gruba i drobnopęcherzykowa piana, mocno zmętnione. Aromat mocno chmielowy, karmelowy i lekko grejpfrutowy. W smaku wyczuwalne chmiele, średnia słodycz i długa przyjemna goryczka. Bardzo dobre IPA.
