500ml bottle. Pours hazy orange-golden color with medium white head. Strong aroma of elder and grapefruit. Very hoppy, fruity, bitter flavor with dry, bitter and slightly fruity aftertaste. Smooth, well balanced beer. Although it is an imperial IPA, the presence of alcohol is well hidden.

mR_fr0g (8882) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle at home from Beer gonzo split with Sarah. An attractive pale yellow / straw coloured pour with a lively frothy white head. Aroma is lovely fresh mixed fruits, canned pineapple, floral citrus, straw. Flavour is composed of raw pale grains, straw , pineapple and pithy lemon citrus, little grassy. Palate is grainy , highish carbonation, crisp finish. Assertive pithy drying hop bitterness. Really quite punchy. Really quaffable.

daje (3982) - NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
On tap at Schouskjelleren, february 12th 2016. Hazy golden body, small but lasting white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, flowery, peach, with a mild caramel character. Taste of orange lemonade, grapefruit and pineapple - this one can’t be much older than a couple of weeks maximum. Pleasant dry bitterness, bringing along a juicy and fresh aftertaste. Quite nice!

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 1, 2016
Jul. ’15. A 0.5 l bottle from Mali ducan, Split. It poured hazy golden body with medium to big head. Fine grass, citrus and floral aroma, but moderately, not so pungent as we all are used to in this style. Also lightly soggy. Flavor was bitter, herbal, flowery with silky biscuit malt sweetness. Nothing too extravagant here, but very balanced and pleasant. A bit more herbal towards the finish. Medium to full body in which alcohol was extremely well hidden. Tasty and very good English IPA, but way different than current craft trends.
