0,5l bottle shared with wiosna @ One Pint Pub. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is creamy malts and fruits. Flavor is creamy malts with some fruity notes, some alcohol and plenty of hops. Great.

In Berlin vom Fass getrunken. Fruchtig im Geruch und Antrunk. Aber nix herausragendes.

Obfita, ładnie krążkująca piana. Barwa jasno bursztynowa, dość klarowna. Aromat delikatny, lekko żywiczny, cytrusowy i ziołowy. W smaku karmelkowo biszkoptowa podbudowa, lekka słodycz owoców kandyzowanych, żelków oraz sporo iglaków. Goryczka wysoka, długa i szorstka, świerkowo grejpfrutowa. Nagazowanie średnie, półpełne w odbiorze, mocne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu na finiszu.
Podwójne IPA bliższe tym ze wschodniego wybrzeża USA niż moim ulubionym West Coast - słodkie, likierowo landrynkowe, niezbyt intensywne w zapachu, ale z silną goryczką w kontrze...

Clear gold color with a large white head, nice lacing. Aroma is heavy hoppy citrus - orange, grapefruitm malty and some carmel, all is well balanced. Flavor is hoppy, malty and sweet, bitternes with a long duration - nice one. Aftertaste is just what I want in IIPA, perfect. It’s a combination of grapefruit’s bitterness and orange sweetnes. Medium body, texture is oily, soft carbonation. Really very drinkable. The whole creates a perfect combination. :D

BOTTLE. (batch #970). Murky orange pour with solid white head.. Orange, fruity punch on the nose, good malt presence as well.. Warmth, toffee malt that’s sticky, goes to a bitter back end with the malty sap lingering, aged surprisingly well.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Fruity & bitter. Citrus, orange, apricose and resin/floral hops are balancing the bitterness really well. Hoppy character. Alcohol percent not tasting. Really nice IPA although not my favourite style

Bottle from Glug, Newcastle. Cloudy amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a sharp orange marmalade and tropical fruity flavour followed by pine and blackcurrant on the slight earthy finish. Very good.
