4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a nice, hazy orange with a medium, creamy white head. It stays for quite a long time and leaves fine laces on the glass. Great aroma with lots of grapefruity hops, some pine, oranges and grass. But there is a great, soft maltiness to it still, quite bready with notes of caramel. Mouthfeel is lightly creamy with prickly carbonation and great dryness. Truly wonderful, balanced flavours. Lots of grapefruit, very bitter, very dry. Malts is biscuity, bready and has soft caramel. The oranges notes appear as well. Truly a wonderful IIPA.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy sour citrus hoppy and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration.This is a standout beer.

Kurz würzigerm dann stark hopfiger Antrunk, etwas dunkel werdend. Im Mittelteil nimmt die Würzigkeit wieder zu und ist der Hopfigkeit ebenbürtig, dabei wird eine hintergründige Herbe gut verdeckt. Im Abgang wird das Bier schnell milder, zu dem Zeitpunkt wo man nun nichts mehr erwartet schlägt der Hopfen erneut zu. Gerne wieder! Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock für das Teilen des Bieres. 9/13/12/12/13/12

Bottle. Grapefruit and red berries in the somewhat medecinal hoparoma. Firm oily hop flavor, somewhat medecinal with grapefruit, lemon and red berries. This beer is malty enough, but this is overpowered by the omnipresent hops. Long oily hopbitter aftertaste with pineapple.
