Decent but not remarkable ipa. Easy bitterness and fruity taste, but not as complex as many great ipas .

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are more and more German interpretations of Anglo-Saxon craft beers nowadays and this is a good example of this new trend, brewed to the Reinheitsgebot. Loose, thin, cream white head over a cloudy yellow honey blonde beer with small protein flakes here and there. Pleasant aroma of flowers, melon, dough, dried banana, cooked potato, garden weeds, orange peel, apricot. Fruity taste, hints of peach and pineapple, minerally carbonation, soft pale malt sweetishness with a honeyish accent, drying finish with powerful floral Euro hops, a bit grassy as well, bittering but only mildly so. Nice balance in flavour; in terms of style, this seems like a return to English IPA coming from an American concept instead of being inspired directly by the traditional English interpretation of the style (becoming even more an alien concept to many now that American hops are conquering the world).

From the bottle poured into spiegelau IPA glass. Was a bit quick and poured all the stuff on the bottom into the glass. Nose is quite fruity tropical but not much citrus there. Interesting Aroma. Taste is Medium sweet, not to dry like a fruity bubblegum i once had. Maybe some peer?! Lower carbonation and Overall not that astringent so its an easy and well balanced beer. I like it!
