Bright, clear amber in colour. Bit of lacing, not much head. Brisk, hoppy aroma. Tangerine, tropical notes. Taste is slightly bitter, with lots of fruitiness. Palate is light to medium. Quite crisp overall and leaves the mouth dry. Lots of interest in here despite the relatively low alcohol content.

DeanF (2342) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
Aroma of okay hops and grains. A bit of head and orange body, average. Flavour is weak hops with orange juice. Medium on the mouth. Positively boring.

MoritzF (9267) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
(can, 33cl) Clear, amber to copper colour with a firm medium-sized off-white foamy head. Hoppy aroma with herbal, piney/resiny and fruity accents, including notes of grapefruit, oranges and pineapples, backed by cara-malt, hints of biscuits, tea. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Robust malty base with notes of caramel, black tea, accompanied by complex hoppy favours, mainly herbal spicy, resiny and mildly fruity; quite lasting, medium-dry finish. Quite good and rounded IPA, can´t wait to sample the bottled version. 14.VII.16

nez: franchement porté sur le litchi, la cerise et le groseille, le tout en ayant une touche florale bouche: on retrouve la groseille, l'amertume est présente, mais discrète une pointe de sucre candy, très agréable cette touche fruité

Gehbe (118) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 28, 2016
Medium tan head, disappears fast, some lacing. Wonderfull rich aroma perfectly balanced between tropical fruits, caramelly/toasty maltiness and a little spice. Taste: medium sweet and light bitter upfront, bittersweet finish with a hint of acidity, pleasant round bitterness in aftertaste. Light to medium carbonation, medium body, a little sticky aftertaste. Wonderful balance, wonderful beer!
