Bottle@home. Hazy orange. One finger foam. Intense resin green grass aromas. Very bitter spicy peppery taste. Long juniper mouthfell. Another intense brew from the Danish brewbrothers. Love it.

The aroma is that of centennial: resin above all (just adore it!), citrus, some tropical fruit hints... Its just like smelling some fresh hop. Hazy light amber color, medium white foam. I cant smell the juniper berries but they show up while tasting with their peculiar sour character (which I actually dont love in a hop-forward beer). Medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel, lively carbonation, astringent finish. I think it wouldve been better without the berries since they dont give any complexity but they just increase the sharpness of this beer.

nosajhongkong (9) - HONG KONG - MAY 18, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 0,33L bottle from Craftissimo at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange colour (from the seabuckthorn?) Medium and foamy white head which slowly fades away and leaves lacing on the glass. Aroma: Blossom and floral aromas from the Centennial hop. Refreshing berry smell from the juniper with notes of peach, tangerine, grapefruit and pine. Taste: Fruity and zesty flavour at first. Then the powerful sourness and bitterness from the seabuckthorn and juniper dominate the rest of the taste. Palate: Medium to full body with sticky mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate with sour and bitter juniper aftertaste surrounding the mouth and throat. I am totally amazed by the juniper and seabuckthorn flavours which have blended in perfectly with the Centennial and Columbus hops to provide subtle bitterness and rich aromas. They have elevated this fruity IPA to another level. Looking forward to tasting more innovative and mind-blowing beers from To Ol.

mmargarucci (251) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2016
Pours a cloudy pale orange. Aroma is filled with flowery hops and sour berries. Has a full mouth feel. Hop grapefruit bitterness quickly subsides to sour berries. Interesting and refreshing.

Hazy blond colour. Intense aroma. Fruity, zesty a little bit herbal. Flavour has tart berry and grapefruit juice and a bitter pithy finish. Complex interesting and very intense.

beer-yum (1243) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Unique bread dough aroma in a cloudy amber pour. Different taste too. Totally different from any IPA Ive had before - with tart berry and woody body and dry finish. Variety is the spice of life for sure (I like).

mcberko (13023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap at Bs Craft Beer Lounge, pours s cloudy opaque yellowish orange with a tiny head. Aroma is quite dry, with lots of pithy notes from the seabuckthorn, tart citrus and light hoppy astringency. Flavour is fruity and tart, with pith upfront from the seabuckthorn, tartness from the berries and medium funk. Not terribly cohesive, with a lot of earthy yeast ones. Not great.

Ferris (11061) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle - Bright sour citrus peel. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Herbal and bitter tart peel. Herbal and tart, but not great.

SinH4 (2330) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Very hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is tart berries and yoghurt. Taste is an immediate sour and bitter kick, like a seabuckthorne yoghurt (never had one, dont even know if they exist, but this is how I would imagine one). Finishes rather weak. I am generally a fan of these modern sour fruit IPAs, but this is hardly IPA at all. Its more like a bitter berry yoghurt. A bit disappointing
