Stumpf harziger Trunk der von den tropischen Americano Hops flankiert wird. Fett bitter, klassisch und rundum gelungen. Klasse. Nachhall so wie es sein soll : LANG & HOPPY.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and light peaches. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of citrus, caramel malt and light peach/nectarine. Finish is semi dry at first with some white pepper and citrus aftertaste. Tongue shock recovery about 1.5 minutes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rusty golden color with a very thin head. The aroma is fairly intense with citrus hops and a slight pine undertone. The first thing that hits the palate is the good bitterness, scored 72 IBU's. Flavor hits a bit hard at first, but mellows as it goes down.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Marriott DTW. Light hoppy aroma. Golden amber color with white head, good lacing. Pleasant hoppy flavor, with nice malt balance. Med bodied. Kind of a "middle of the road" IPA, but good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stuff is pretty simple w/o much hop character in the nose but is pretty solid otherwise. It’s medium bodied, not too sweet w/ just a light peachy/fruity touch of hops. It finishes w/ a strong earthy bitterness that’s not unpleasant. Overall, not exactly memorable but seemingly skillfully brewed w/o much in the way of off flavors or anything like that. Let’s call it okay.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was citrus and hoppy. The sharp thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of mild rye wheat sweet citrus hops and bread dough. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Bottle: Golden with an orangey sheen, hazy, small and stable creamy off-white head; solid bitter nose of exotic fruits and grapefruits, some caramel underneath; solid bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, tart but soft(!) mouthfeel; lingering - as expected - dry grapefruity and resiny finish. Yes, good…
