orange with large white head. nose of oxidized citrus and herbal hops. firm bitterness before touches of low crystal sweetness o perhaps munich malt before solid citrus and herbal hop flavors that are slightly muted with age. the beer shows little alcohol presence and has a relatively dry finish for the abv. overall a pretty traiditional double ipa that at its prime would probably be solid but not spectacular and now is below average

dambor (20) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2014
Pours deep yellow with a medium head, disappearing pretty fast. Aroma: a lot of herbs, with some orange peel and white fruit in the background. Very fresh. Taste: very nice full body with a nice bitterness at the end, lasting not too short and not too long-just perfect. Medium carbonation.The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden. Great IPA.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Hazy deep gold with a long lasting white crown. Ripe pineapple and grapefruit hop character with accompanying sweet malts make for a very drinkable DIPA. Pleasing bitter finish. Yum.

CapFlu (4483) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Lasting thin white head atop and cloudy orange body. Nose of orange marmalade, rotten cantiloup and battery acid. Flavour is nicely smooth, hides the alcohol well. Very nice. Purchased from Metro Liquor University Heights.

Barwa bardzo ładna, taka soczysta pomarańczka, zamglone. Piana niewielka pozostawiająca przyzwoity lacing. Aromaty ziłowo-rodzynkowo-winogronowe, z odrobiną grejpfruta. Półpełne, słodowe, z goryczkową kontrą. Sama goryczka jest powyżej średniej, trochę zalegająca, ziołowa i odrobinkę cytrusowa. Wysycenie średnie, a alkohol tylko trochę wyczuwalny.

whoisghost (35) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
Beautiful pale amber colour - slightly cloudy. Thin white head with ok lacing. Amazing citrus fruit aroma with an additional hint of honey. Tasting a dark honey initial taste with a slightly woody middle. Citrus and bitter pine dominate the end. Nice and thick palate - good carbonation and good mouth coat.

vanelst (118) - AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2014
Aroma of malt, pineapple, oranges, grapefruits and hops. Bitter grapefruite taste and hops at the beginning, sweeter middle part and a long bitterdry finish. All in all a good beer, but the bitterness of this one is not refreshing at ale and kinda too overwhelming. Overrated for what it is.

Gurthnar (1574) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Aroma elderflower, overall flowery, light resiny. Clear amber colour with reddish tint. Taste has nicely balanced intense bitterness and decent sweet backbone. Citrus, orange, resiny. Tasty. Very good. Long hoppy finish.

Barwa: bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, dość szybko opada, ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat: słodowy (herbatniki z karmelem), wyraźnie alkoholowy oraz chmielowy cytrusy (wśród których dominują mandarynki) oraz zioła. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny, słodowy, ale raczej wytrawny i alkoholowy początek. Następnie chmielowa kontra z goryczką powyżej średniej, głównie ziołowa i nieco łodygowa, zielona, trochę zalegająca. Piwo uwarzone według receptury zwycięzcy norweskiego konkursu piw domowych w 2010r. Prawdopodobnie z tego powodu producent nie podaje pełnego składu, jak zwykł to czynić w przypadku swoich piw. Barwa i aromat są nawet niezłe, ale w smaku za bardzo atakuje moim zdaniem alkohol i goryczka jest nieco męcząca. Z tego powodu piłem całą butelką dość długo.

pours dark hazy copper. Aroma is funky, notes of fruit and pine. Bitter with a Belgian yeast background. Fruity with notes of lemon a nice amount of hops and funk on the finish. Medium body light carbonation.
