Flaska från craftbeer.se. Doftar ananas och passionsfrukt. Ohh, len och rar i munnen. Medelbeska med stor maltkropp. Smarrig.

Tap. Medium long lasting white head, big layered lace. Clear, slightly cloudy pale orange. Grape fruit and other citrus on aroma with camembert. Taste has grape fruit, strong pine apple, tight hops and bitterness. Very dry palate with medium carbons. Nice balance, complex, tasty and refreshing. Developes big variety of aroma and taste notes in warming glass. Very interesting.

The beer pours a slightly hazed honey gold colour with a generous rocky snow white head. Aroma is mild grapefruit, orange, and grass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is weak grapefruit, pea pods, citrus peel, and grass. My least favourite Thornbridge beer so far.

Jaune pâle, à peine trouble.Mousse moyenne, se dissipant moyennement et laissant un petit col blanc.Nez superbe : très frais et fruité : ananas, fruit de la passion (passiflore). En bouche goûts et palette moins étonnants, fraîcheur et amertume, finale très sèche.Corps assez fluide et léger, alcool très discret, le malt aussi se cache autant que possible.Une impériale ? Une bonne IPA anglaise en tout cas, fraîche et un peu forte c’est vrai.Amère, à mer.

Cuso (5347) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 23, 2014
Tap at Craft bier fest, Vienna. Pale golden color with medium head. Biscuit malt, citrus hops in aroma. Strong dry citrus hoppy taste with solid malty backbone. Long hoppy bitter finish. Good.

Bottiglia comprata alla Torre del Luppolo (Pisa, Italy), Imperial IPA in pieno stile, al naso molto erbacea e resinosa, in bocca un corpo importante e ben equilibrato, maltoso che chiude con una importante amaro dato dall’abbondanz adel luppolo. Nonostante la gradazione si beve benissimo!!!

Head: white and thick, as all as clouds if the temperature is right. Aroma: vresh pine, fresh grass, fresh hops, Colour: pale golden, slightly hazy Taste: sweet at first, then slowly creeping towards bitter pine...very good balance Palate: medium body, medium carbonation, nice slowly developing bitterness, a bit silky texture and a spectacular bitter finish.

Pours a murky, yellow amber, with noticeable tiny bits floating in the glass. Very thin, rapidly dissipating white head. Aromas are explosive, featuring sour grapefruit, lemon drops, and grass. Palate is fairly crisp and clean and yet still leaning towards a medium body. Tastes are in a word, delicious. Citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and a slight sweetness. Overall, don’t let the light colouring fool you. This is a beer full of powerful aromas, and powerful tastes. And at 7.4% abv it’s just plain powerful. A highly quaffable beer that you will have to force yourself to sip. Would not hesitate to purchase this one again.
