Very nice bottle design. Pours hazy pale yellow with small fine head. Citrus and lots of tropical fruit in the nose. Starts with lots of aroma hops, aroma of tropical fruit, really lots of tropical fruit, hehe. Middle part has citrus and grapefruit as well as some herbs. Goes into a hoppy bitter finish with lots of tropical fruits and some pine wood. Awesome stuff, maaaan!

50 cl bottle from Špunka in Tallinn (€ 3.75). BB 12.08.2015. Pours a lovely, slightly hazy pale golden colour with an off-white head with good retention and some lacing. A rather disappointingly modest aroma for what they state is an IIPA. I get some tropical fruits, mostly dried and sugared pineapples and mango, bitter citruses... Opens up later, giving off a more musky character, with warmer, sweet piney-resiny and biscuity, cat-pee-y notes. Floral and mawkish. (Decided to give it a 6 instead of 7 just before posting the review.) It’s slighly off-putting. Would love to know the hops in this. Taste is more intensely hoppy with lemon and lime dominant, also a piney-resinous bitterness, but playing well together with a sweet malty backbone, whereas finishing with a grapefruity bite. Body around medium, carbonation below average but with a certain prickle, palate near smooth. Not a hint (well okay, maybe a small one) of the 7.4% ABV. An enjoyable brew, more full than I’d like my IPA’s and less ballsy than I’d like my IIPA’s - let’s say this is a nice crossover, only a bit too sweet for my liking.

0,50 bottle got in Serbia, courtesy of markoijelena. Thank you. Pours pale golden-yellow, hazy with a medium white foamy head which leaves lacing and bubbling spots on the surface. Nose: lime, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pungent tartness. Just a hint of caramel which does not disturb. Mouth: solid bitterness all around the palate starting from the first sip, a lovely hint of sweet jam, tons of lemon and citrus.

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.
