Pours a hazy, golden orange. Looks like a wheat but not as bright. Thin white head. Super sticky lacing. Pine, grapefruit pith, brown sugar and alcohol....but smooth. Nice and hoppy, resiny, spring sap, citrus pith and a touch floral. Some malty sweetness that is stifled by the bitter goodness. Medium-thick and slick. Moderately bitter with lingering pine but not overly abrasive. Nice.

ScipioA (369) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2015
Old school IPA clear copper pour with a tan head. There’s a nice orange/grapefruit citrus aroma carries through to the flavor, but there’s a little too much sweetness and alcohol, like a dry hopped malt liquor. Thick and bubbly mouthfeel.

Again, thanks Glava, Renato, Peh et al.! Poured a dark golden-amber b ody with an off white head. NIce passionfruit/tropical fruit aroma. Fruity, hoppy taste, some pine, this was a bit past its prime, so it fought through heavy maltiness, but it was still ok enough overall. Hope to rerate these fresh one day!

Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, grapefruity nose. Sweet malty, quite strong fruity hoppy, noticable alcohol and dry rather bitter hoppy finish. Really pleasant brew.

Draft. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor is trip hop, mostly mango and guava, but its not close to being too sweet. Some gentle bittering at the end brings it into balance (maybe with help for some wispy caramel malts?) A stunner.

MrOrla (239) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy golden body with a huge clear white head. Aroma is hops, grapefruit, pine needles, caramel, pineapple. Taste is hoppy, pine needles, grapefruit, bread, fruit, and hops again, very refreshing :). Good ipa! And very well hidden alcohol :)

thehinge (279) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Murky orange pour with a healthy white head....lots of lacing. Grassy aroma. Citrusy front end with a healthy hop bitterness in the aftertaste. This was very good. Have liked everything I’ve sampled from Port

nihtila (1357) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
12.3.2014. Aroma has grass, exotic fruits, esp mango and pineapple. Taste follows decently. Earthy, grassy hop profile, sweetness and dryness in good balance. Still more like dry.

From bottle. Hazy with big white head. Aroma of pine, fruits and caramel. Taste of grapefruit, pine. Bitterness hits strong and oh it’s good. Sweet, with low carbonation. Try it, one of the best I’ve ever had.

A nice place for tasting at this bocktown monaca, continuously rotating taps. Smells and looks like heavy IPA. Wew, unique odd dull nose. Used leather and stuff there. Yes, not sure what to think. Is it trying to be like a what? Weird breakfast sugar crisp cereal. Go figger. Another beer from the big brave state of CA. Not impressed and this style never was.
