Golden-orange in colour. Aroma of citrus(oranges, grapefruit), hops and some pine. Flavour of grass, hops, some malt, earth, citrus and some spices. Medium body. Finishes with a medium bitterness. Thanks for the bottle mr_kimchee.

Pleasant enough citrus-orange/pale golden beer releasing a hoppy fruity forest aroma. Kinda creamy mouthfeel with nice lingering finish that feels somewhat refreshing and slightly bitter.

Great brew, could do with a little more hopping though. Very nice looking, great malting, needed just a tad more hoppiness at the aftertaste. Overall it is a kickass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber body under a sloppy white head. Orange citrus and taffy in the aroma. The sweetness continues in the flavor, it makes up the malt base along with some caramel notes. Hop flavors are pine and pineapple, although the strong carbonation makes detecting them difficult. Resinous finish. This beer's subdued hops are fine by me, but I disliked the taffy sweetness - it didn't fit well in this style of beer.

What a great surprise. Ordered because it was the only micro offered, this puppy came through in spades. Yeastiness keeps a slight damper on zooming fresh hops. Malting is clear and strong. Fruitiness supreme with strong citrus and pineapple(?). A great IPA.

Great orange/amber color. The initialy scent is inviting and complex with tqinges of pineapple and hops. Tastes great with full and detailed flavor of hops accented with various fruits. Good thirst quencher and great overall beer. Best IPA in my opinion.
