Tap. Nice copper color with pillowy white lasting head and lots of lacing. Smells nice and refreshing of pine, grapefruit,and caramel. Tastes a little off- popcorn and dirty. Then settles in to a dry and lightly bitter finish. As you drink it hops take over and the funny taste fades.

Met mijn neef een flesje gedeeld. Licht oranje, licht schuimend, mild bitter licht geurend. Lekker te drinken.

Benzai (8999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle shared by my uncle Ino. Hazy light orange color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, a hint of sweetish tropical fruits, lightly fruit hops, average bitterness. Decent bitter finish. Decent body, average to medium carbonation. Ok IPA.

freretoc (872) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 35cl, couleur blonde, belle mousse et belle effervescence, magnifique nez houblonné sur le fruit de la passuin et les agrumes, en bouche explosion de saveur, toujours sur le houblon, agrumes, pamplemousse, citron et fin de bouche fruits jaunes, une tuerie !

Renobob (888) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 29, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 355 ml. On tape sur le houblon mais c'est facile à boire. Et c'est excellent. Équilibrée à souhait. On sent l'alcool mais pas trop, le houblon est là mais sans trop en faire. Bref, du plaisir en bouteille !

JaKeAFC (605) - ITALY - OCT 28, 2014
35 cl bottle. Orange color, hazed, big stable white head. Hoppy IPA nose. Caramel malts, fruit (apricot, peach), grapefruit, lemon zest. Taste balanced, slightly tart, mild sweet, pronunced long hoppy bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink, not too complex. Very nice IPA.

Loving the registered trademark indicators on the hops name in the description. Damn anyone who grows these plants but doesn’t buy the right from some mega-conglomerate that bribed the necessary officials!!! Alas, back to the beer. It is riding the Organic train HEAVY. Decent weight/palate but all those hops, sorry, organic hops, went into bittering. Nothing interesting going on here. Even got some chill haze, which I guess is okay b/c "its organic". Glad TradeJoes dropped this one.

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a hazy orange gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with strong caramel malt and pine, light bitterness. Good.

"Definitely better than the amber. I really like the hop varieties in here, but it seems like this has a bit o shelf life on em as the hop combo works, but is not very lively for an ipa. I’m guessing this Could be quite good fresh. Mediocre as is."

Quite random IPA. Good alcohol level but still nothing particular. IPA IPA and more IPA bitterness...
