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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden-yellow with small white head. Great hoppy aroma, citrus fruit, pine, flowers, caramel. Taste is grapefruit balanced with malt sweetness. Refreshing palate, medium body with good carbonation. A very decent organic IPA. What is notable is that this is the first time in history I have been able to buy an IPA in a German supermarket. The times they are a-changin’!
