floral, dough, spruce, hay, orange, hazy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, astringent. Smells incredible, however in the taste there is a little soapiness that I am not really fond off. Besides that, really good beer

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle from Zombier, Málaga, Spain
Cloudy copper-amber color with generous compact head. The hop aroma is quite nice and a bit fruity, maybe more was expected. It has a good caramel and toffee flavor, with a lean body, not too sticky, and the aromatic components of the hops are now more evident, with bitter oranges and medium piney resins. It has a strong but not excessive bitterness.
Very good.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours an amber orange with a fluffy slightly off-white head. There was a bit of yeast in the bottle to I gave it a swirl and in it went. This released floral buttery pine notes with little lemon and orange in an intriguing aroma. On swallowing a herby pine flavour fills the mouth with a real creamy texture. White pepper, light clove a hint of lemongrass and a zesty tangerine and lemon bitterness collide then dry quite completely a pine resonance in the nose and on the tongue. The differences in this IPA series can be quite subtle, but differences there definitely are. A wonderfully complex showcase where the hops really are the star.
