3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a white, short lived head. Aroma consists of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, and a bit of pine. It is enticing, but doesn’t overpower you. The taste is what you would expect from this style. Grapefruit and pine dominate. I also find lemon, pineapple, grass, and a few floral impressions actually. Bitter. Aftertaste is pine and grapefruit. Medium in body with a more sticky texture. This is a fairly solid IPA.

Solid. Made the mistake of having mandirana first which is amazing so this is just ok. Pine lead with bitter finish. Solid but not amazing

On tap at VCBW Festival, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out spicy hops and crisp biscuity malt. Flavour is solid, with spicy piney hops and a sufficient crisp biscuity malt backing. Well-balanced and highly drinkable. Nice IPA.

Ein IPA, wie es eigentlich im Buche steht. Schoen hopfig, dazu ein wenig Frucht, hier vor allem Orange. Dahinter eine gewisse Trockenheit, aber ein wenig brutale Bitterkeit zum Schluss, was fuer mich nix ist. Alles in allem ein grosses Like.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a clear deep amber colour with a medium body and steady low head. Aroma of hops and malt with vanilla hints. Taste of hops, bitterness, medicine and herbs. Medicine finish with a bitter twist. Refreshing, yet I expected more.

3/23/15. 12oz bottle thanks to tubafatness! Amber orange pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Weird aroma, grainy, smells like wort and mash. Weird. No hops to speak of. Weird flavor as well, wort, mashing grains, grainy. Weird, not great.

Golden colour, medium white head leaves excellent lacing behind. Aroma is resin, mint, pines. Taste is watery at first, then becomes bitter with a herbal aftertaste. Rather bland, but not really bad.
