Hazy dark amber to copper cored pour with a 2 finger, soapy beige head. Aroma starts with super fruity hops with a nice bite, a full gamut of citrus, lots of floral and a little tart tropical fruit, then some tart berry, mild toast, sweet biscuit and some floral/fruity notes that I can’t exactly pin down. Flavor is tree and berry fruit, caramel and biscuit up front, then citrus, floral, passion fruit-tropical, earthy and herbal hops, lots of fruity, berry perfume and light, but noticeable spicy, phenolic notes. Medium body, oily, syrupy and a hint of creaminess throughout along with a medium carbonation. Really tasty stuff, there are a couple off notes, but overall it was very enjoyable.

JRListon (8) - - SEP 28, 2014 does not count
Source: 22oz bottle Very cloudy, almost thick Amber appearance. Aroma is very resiny almost grassy in nature. Not as floral or fruity as I was expecting. The taste is tremendously complex with hop goodness. Way more hop in the taste than in the nose. The amount of hops in the taste actually surprises you after smelling the beer. Malt is present, but mostly in the mouthfeel. With so much hop dominating the taste, it would be hard for any grain to make an appearance on the palate, but it definitely shows up in the mouthfeel. In fact the mouthfeel is almost chewy. Which helps deliver the hops in a balanced way. Overall: a really interesting beer. One I would enjoy repeating. Would definitely recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Large, well-retained head with golden orange hue. Nice rings of lacing also. Big, sharp citrus aroma. Potent citrus flavor as well. Not much malt, pine, etc. A little boozy, more than one might expect for 8% ABV, but the hop bitterness in the aftertaste helps make up for it. This is a good, citrusy, somewhere between IPA and double IPA type beer. Would like a little more complexity and malt, but still, pretty nice.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Small off white head. Flavour is beautifully fruity, from citrus and grapefruits to exotic, sweet and pine/peachy fruit. A nice herbal bitterness with a fruity malty tone. Good in balance and damn tasty! Nose has lots of different fruits, light dusty, some malts, bread and some pine and resin. Afteraste is bitter, fruity, malty and light herbal. Good bitter and strong fruity! Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a creamy sticky texture. Very nice!
