355 ml bottle. No freshness info. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear gloden color with a small head. Resinous hops and tropical fruits on the nose, pine. Quite bitter, very fruity with resinous hops, some caramel malts. Slick palate, leaves a oily layer in your mouth. Quite nice hoppy brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness with piney - som grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness with piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Well hopped IPA, could be bit drier with less caramel. Nice IPA though.

Copper boudy, white head. Aroma has lots of pungent pines. Just right amount of cookie dough and caramel. Flavour is quite right for nice bit caramelly IPA. Something in this one is really just great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a huge billowy head of just off white foam. The head holds on with quite some persistence, slowly fading to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of strong of a citrus grapefruit smell along with it having a little bit of an orange and tangerine smell as well. These aromas are by far the most potent, but are joined by some lighter smells of a floral and grassy nature as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier citrus and lightly bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a fruit taste of tangerine, orange, and pineapple. As the taste advances, the sweetness fades a bit, all while the bitterness gets even greater with more grapefruit and some floral and light earthy flavors coming to the tongue. Right at the end, a little bit of a grassy flavor comes to the tongue as well, leaving a rather bitter, but still smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style the mouthfeel is very nice, as it balances well the fruit and bitter hop flavors.
Overall – A rather tasty and crisper IPA with a good level of fruity citrus hop flavor as well as just enough other bitter hops to keep a big IPA flavor all throughout the taste.

Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Fruity and piney hops, fresh hop cones, mild bitterness, some sweetness and mild maltiness in the aroma. Wow! Very nice aroma.
The flavour is piney and citrusy hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and some maltiness. Extremely drinkable and rich. Truly amazing IPA.
