(Oedipus Gaia) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 7% Golden orange coloured beer, good sized head, white in colour and a bit thin but with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass as it collapses. Aroma has tropical fruits, some grapefruit. Nice taste, quite hoppy, citrus, tropical fruits, some pine, with a nice bitterness throughout and a long lasting aftertaste. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Very good this one.

heman (113) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Piana jest bardzo intensywna, biała i drobno- do grubo-pęcherzykowa. Piwo jest jasno bursztynowej barwy, lekko przymglone z pływającą pylastą zawiesiną. Aromat jest bardzo świeży i chmielowy. Głównie mamy rześkie cytrusy (grejpfrut, pomarańcze, cytryny). W smaku od pierwszego łyka zaznacza się goryczka, na chwilę kontrowana słodami - biszkopt i karmel. Finisz to ponownie wysoka goryczka, bardzo grejpfrutowa i krótka, po ogrzaniu dostaje lekko tytoniowego charakteru.

Oranje amber kleurig bier. Laffe schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Ruikt naar sinasappels en citroen. Smaakt erg lekker, bitter met een nasmaak van citrus. Bier is wel veels te duur. Voor die prijs is er beter verkrijgbaar.

thebeertourist (4972) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle at Gollem’s Proeflokaal. Hazy orangey amber, frothy head. Orange zest and piney nose. Intensely bitter, a lot of orange zesty hop bitterness, but also pine. Nice one.

Saeglopur (533) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle, bottled on 21/3/2014.
Orange, hazy body, with a big, frothy, white head, that dissipates quickly.
Aroma of citrus, pine, orange, tangerine, some tropical fruits, some grass.
Taste is about the same, also biscuit and honey like malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, slightly dry, with citrus, grass and some sweet malts.

Nice! Although it isn’t fresh anymore, still with nice, fruity and piney hop notes. The malt backbone is also quite tasty. Overall a decent, easy to drink and nicely balanced IPA, even after 7 months.
