4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Thanks to Lothore. Clear orange golden color, decent sized white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is lightly malts, lovely hoppy, floral and fruity all together. Taste is about the same: lightly malts, a lovely hoppyness, a nice floral touch, good fruityness and fruit hops, a good bitterness and quite well balanced. Well, maybe itís the night which has been great so far, or the beer is just as good as the weighted average suggests it is, but I really like it!

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is very citrus hopping. Tons of tropical and citrus fruits with a small piney nose. Taste is incredibly smooth and well balanced. Excellent malt backbone with the fruity hop flavor. Medium bodied. Love the citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a caramel malt backbone. Incredible IPA.

Solid beer. Shared with me by a friend. Pour was sort of orange and relatively clear. Aroma of citrus and pine and the taste follows the nose. I picked up on some other fruits in there as well. Maybe some mango and tropical fruits. Easy drinking, medium body, well-balanced bitterness and dryness.

Bottle, thanks to Bytemesis, pours a clear golden amber with a two finger head and nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine, and a little bread. Taste is medium bitter with hints of sweetness with a clean finish. Tasty!

Such a well built beer. Great balance of malt and hops. Not particularly hoppy although there is good palate length. Dry with some pine and mild citrus to finish.

Tap at Toronado. One of the big ones, for sure. Light orange no head but quite a bit of lacing. Nose was pretty quiet, some pine. Notes of citrus fruit, some sweeter notes and lots of earthy bitterness. Tastes were full body with lively carbonation and lasting bitterness. My mouth was pretty beat up after a night of great beers, love to try this again with less wear and tear.
