Bottle. Pours a hazy, straw color with a just off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma; oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Slight caramel malt aromas as well. There’s a sweet maltiness that hits at first sip but the overwhelming bitterness overtakes it almost instantly. Tons of grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. I’d say this beer is a classic west-coast IPA.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste pine, citrus, fruit. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Kaapse brewery shop in Rotterdam. No dates on the bottle so not sure how fresh this is. Not an overwhelming aroma but I detect some citrus zest. Taste is hop forward I can get the simcoe probably the most and the finish is herbal bitter and long. This is an excellent IPA which I will definitely enjoy again.

Looks great. Hazy orange with a huge foamy head. Lovely hop aroma. Chewy body with sufficient malt to support the heavy hops. Fantastic brew. Love it.

This is simply the most perfect IPA and my favourite #1 so far! Perfect appearance, feeling and taste (which stays long!). Enough excitement but no gimmicks in this taste. Citrus and pine, very nice aftertaste too.

Hazy orange body with a beige head. Aroma is hoppy fruits, mostly tropical, some grapefruit, some caramel. Taste is balanced. Medium sweet and bitter. Nice beer.

HopsHipster (40) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
Lidt mild men samtidig dejlig frisk og let IPA, som man nemt kan drikke mere end én af. En mere markant og bitter eftersmag savnes dog. [APK: 6.96]

Muggus69 (1181) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
640mL bottle Bottled 3/12/14 Pours a pale golden body, lightly hazy, with a big pillowy white head foaming up and hanging around. Hop aroma bursts from the glass - lots of freshly cut grass, passionfruit & guava, pine needle & sap, orange & grapefruit, with a hint biscuity pale malt underneath. Lively carbonation, maybe a touch over-the-top, body is surprisingly lean for a relatively big beer, deceptive, in a good way. Hops aplenty on the palate; once again, lots of grass, woody spice, grapefruit rind, orange sherbert, leafy herbs. Bitterness is high, finish is dry, lingering citrus & spice. A good IPA. Lacking a bit in the malt department, but overall very decent.

Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is hippy funk. Close to weed. Taste follows nose with a beautiful short bitter bite. Nice.
