On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. Plain, green, planty aroma. The flavor follows through in a lot of bitterness and coppery malt. Clean, but yellow with raw hoppiness. I can’t get into this, it feels like an overly bitter Amber Ale with young flavor hops.

Bouteille bue en avril 2014. Très légère en bouche. Amertume bien fruitée. Un petit arôme d’abricot qui vient s’ajouter aux agrumes. Belle surprise!

SamP01 (648) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Pours a orange gold with a medium slowly fading off white head. some light lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus herbal, some caramel malt notes, pine herbal hops. Taste same as aroma with a moderate caramel malt and yeast flavor, some notes of toasted grains, pine citrus herbal hops bitterness. Palate is a full body, good smooth mouth feel. Finish is sweet fruity and yeast notes with some caramel malt and citrus flavors, followed by some good pine herbal earthy hops bitterness that lasts through out, hop bite is not too harsh. Overall a well balanced good smooth drinking DIPA.

Bottle. Pours a typical gold with little head. Malty aroma with some floral hops. Lots of malt and hop flavor without tons of bitterness- just the way I like it! The alcohol is well hidden in this beer and it goes down smoothly. Excellent overall.

22.01.2016 Istanbul, Şişe.. Görüntü; Bulanık ve koyu portakal renkli, bir parmak küçük kabarcıklı bardak kenarlarına tutunan hoş bir köpüğü var. Koku: daha bardağa dökülürken odayı saran tropikal meyve, narenciye kokuları yanında malt, karamel, akide şekeri, çam balı, reçine ile oldukça kompleks. Tadım: Gövdeli, tok, gazlılık orta, acılık oldukça dengeli ve damakta diğer şerbetçiotlarının farkları net hissediliyor.. Damakta hissedilen tatlar; malt, greyfurt, ş.otu acılığı, karamel, reçine.. Oldukça kompleks.. Genel Değerlendirme: double india Pale ale türündeki bu bira acılık ile karakter koymaktan ise gövdesi, kompleks koku ve tatları ile harika bir denge yakalamış. Çok iyi, ratebeer puanını düşük bulduğum bir bira..

Pours a golden clear, with one finger head with moderate lacing. Pine and orange peel aroma with toasted grain. moderate to heavy bitterness. Medium to heavy lacing. Medium/long finish. This is actually a well done DIPA. Underrated.

Pint can thanks to secret Santa, pours a clear orange/golden with a large khaki head. Fruity hop aroma with caramel malt. Sharp bitterness rides the palate to the end, mandarin orange circus hop, with resinous winter fresh, and caramel malt. Not bad.
