Beautiful copper colour. My favorite IPA so far. Usually prefer wheat beers and belgians - this corrects my aversion to IPAs due to many being hopped for the sole purpose of raising IBUs. Wonderful combination of malt and measured bitterness. Absolutely wonderful.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. Tasted on 6/5/13 on draft at the brewpub during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor. Pours hazy golden orange with an average white head that leaves thin, but sticky lace. The nose is earthy caramel bread with primarily spicy hops underlying. The flavor displays the hops a little more aggressively than I expected given the nose with the same earthy caramel bread. The body is just above light with average carbonation and a medium spicy hops finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from bierpost. Amber-golden with a creamy off-white head and a good hop aroma. Medium-bodied, malty base with grassy-citrusy hops. Not as packed with tropcial fruit as typical IPAs this one comes with German hops, which also deliver a good show here. All in all, a very enjoyable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, oak, vanilla, hints of grass, slight yeast, bread in there, some orange. Taste is a mix of lemongrass, some bread, yeast, soapy and spicy notes, finishing bitter, dry. Pretty nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Herbal-spicy hoppy aroma with a whiff of grass and spruce, accompanied by mildly honey-ish malty notes. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with an almost creamy carbonation. Soft and mildly grainy malty base with a good dash of herbal and slightly grassy hops, lingering into the lasting bitter hoppy finish. Might be odd for the typical IPA devotees, tastes like a dry-hopped pale Bock, also Witzgall Landbier from Franconia comes to my mind. 25.VIII.14

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a cloudy golden with a frothy white foam cap. Aroma is different from your typical IPA, leaning more floral, herbal, and spicy. Taste is bready malt that gives way to an earthy, grassy, and spicy hop flavor. Bitterness is crisp but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is light to medium with a crisp, moderate to high carbonation. Finishes very dry with a resinous feeling on the tongue and a lingering bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, yellow-ish orangey, golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with notes of lemon and orange receives support by grassy, peppery-spicy hop notes from the Hallertauer. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, slightly sweet, juicy, fruity basis with notes of pineapple, orange, lemon, grassy, peppery-spicy hoppy overtones. It doesn’t go without some irony to sit here in Germany, drooling over any supposably flavourful US IPA reachable in order to escape from the boring German pabulum, finding oneself drinking one with "decidedly German twist". But this doesn’t mean being reverberated into Sisyphean circumstances: what we’ve got here is a nice exemplar that shows the splendid usage of a putative second order hop variety adding some well matching spiciness.
