4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great gold-looking beer and little bit hazy. Also great head in color of honey. Aroma is dominated by american hops - fruity and citrus notes. Very pleasant. Tastes wonderful. Very mild in flavor, slightly oily, extremely pleasant. Bitterness is moderate, which lasts preety long. Accurate carbonation. Really great beer.

Not the freshest one, this bottle is dated bb 10/07/2014.
Clearish orange with a fluffy head. Aroma is straightforward fruity hops, peaches. Light mouthfeel, quite thin actually, and turns into bittering hops. Taste is pine and floral hops. This really should be drank fresh and now it’s a bit lacking with the hops which I think would be the main thing with this beer.
Okay, but hasn’t aged well.

the smell is so big- its like pure wet hops in a sack. no malt to speak of... the taste is kinda the same, really... the double version must be huge. The colour of this beer is amazing- mother or pearl and light orange. bitter and resinous ....good s#*t

Draft. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is hops, grass, pine and some grapefruit. Very well balanced, good amount of bitterness with a soft sweet malty backbone. Medium body with average carbonation. Great IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, massive dense white/beige head. Smells of grapefruit, herbs, hints of basil. Moderate sweet, almost no body as the finish rushes and overrun the light body. Heavy bitter, high on the resins. Promising IPA, nice on the aromas, but sadly a bit on the weak side and not big enough to support the massive hop amounts
