stoutnick (493) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Six pack from Ashland, Kentucky. Deep golden. Aroma is citrus fruit then citrus citrus citrus. Taste is the same (citrus citrus) with some hop bitterness and caramel in the mix. Good finish. Nice pale, though citrus flavours aren’t my favourite in beer.

freeofthoughts (648) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2014
Three week young bottle pours a nice clear copper orange with some gold in the thin parts, eggshellish suds. The aroma is sweet and fruity with a malty tint. It starts malty and bready with a large pale ale feel, rich on all sides. The hops have a fresh deep complexity with some earthy green stalk, floral, light citrus pine, and light tree fruit flavors. The finishes with a little sparkle of carbonation and lasting floral orange peel hop bitterness with a touch of malty sweet. Pretty nice beer, strattles the line between a malty ipa and an overgrown American pale ale.

tap. Amber with one finger head. It’s hard to find a brewery better at making hop bombs. This is an outstanding IPA.

minofra (2) - Milano, ITALY - APR 5, 2014 does not count
Perfect!!! A great beer!!! Citrus hops with a little but of pine and sweetness to it. Smooth and delicious. The hops aren’t over powering and the hops blend really with the malt

olsvammel (3030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. Deep fruity smell with dried fruit, citrus and hops. Similar taste. Very easy to drink. Just the right level of bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

Amber malts hit the nose paired with some Citrus hops. Mouthfeel is adequate but the balance is great. Malts are loud but the hops keep up. Finish goes on a hoppy journey from earthy to citrus with a finish of grassy/piney. Really fun!! ---That dog will hunt!
