This beer gets better everytime I buy it. Big citrus hop aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with a huge, thick, frothy head. Amazing balance of citrus and pine hop flavor, that is balanced just enough to make this an incredibly drinkable IPA. Think lacing... so thick that my 16oz glass needed to be rinsed to pour the rest of the bomber. Maybe my favorite 1x IPA, even tough I rated AleSmith IPA higher.

Butelka. Piękna pełna piana, ładnie koronkująca. Kolor jasno bursztynowy, lekko mętny ale czysty. Zapach niezbyt intersnywny, lekko cytrusowy, anansowy. Smak płytki, ale bardzo przyjemna goryczka. Mocna ale nie utrzymująca się zbyt długo.

Light golden color, tall head, great lacing on the glass. Moderate bitterness, spruce, pine, and resin hops. Balanced. Reminds me of a Green Flash IPA but less bitter, more of an everyday type of beer.

cheap (4209) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2014
On tap at mad mex. yellow ever so slightly hazy. Rocky head. rather perfumy hop aroma. Quite strong from the start. difficult and strong, yea. Certainly on terrible style. Wew, big bitter chewing on green grapefruit rinds yet not as syrupy as a double. Decent co2, makes this rather acceptable. Finish is long & bitter. A little easier to take than many IPA.

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 28, 2014
Deep golden-orange clear colour with a large medium long lasting frothy white head. Aromas of grapefruit-orange, litschi, maracuja and light herbal spruce notes intermingle. Light carbonation opens the scene to a soft, mellow texture with some sweetness upfront which quickly develops into a fruity acidity building into a dry bitterness. Light-medium bodied the beer keeps holding onto its fruity bitterness with faint sweetness lasting long on the palate for the finish.

Kita (1198) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Hazy amber color with thick creamy off white head and great lacing. Pungent aroma of citrus, pine and pineapple. Taste starts refreshing fruity, follows sweet resinous with heavy bitter finish and neverending aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Just excellent...
