Golden with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, hop resin and grapefruit. Sticky and fruity palate. Aftertaste is bitter, spicy alcohol, grapefruit and lingering hop finish. Overall: really like the taste and the long hoppy aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of mikeq215. Thanks. pours a translucent golden color with a small white head that has decent retention. The aroma is strong with fresh tropical fruits including: grapefruit. melons, oranges and kiwi. The taste, unlike the aroma, seemed less vibrant. less energetic and less mention worthy. Most of the tropical flavors noted in the aroma were mellow, subtle and washed out. The malt base was neutral and transparent. The palate was full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished short and dry. Overall: I’m speaking like a critic and I hate myself for it. But the bar for IPA’s is one set high and so there yo have it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear pale gold with a short, short-lived white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, mild caramel malt, floral notes. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate to strong bitterness. (8/10) Medium body tending to heavy, moderate to low carbonation, slightly creamy and oily with a lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Nicely balanced yet hop forward DIPA, with just enough malt to support the hops - just the way I like my DIPA’s! Pleasantly fruity and juicy, with a very well-integrated ABV. Definitely a go-to DIPA. (16/20)

Bottle. Amber pour with a head that dissipated quickly. Lemon, citrus, pine, tea, honey, fruits. Medium body. Nice but a bit more body would be better

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden colour - the beer in the glass has not seduced me. Medium white head. Nothing special about it. Two minutes after pouring, no carbonation was even apparant. Except for the colour, this beer is like still water. Nose is malty and a lot of citrus, peaches, pine coming from the hops. Nose is maybe a little to sweet, but complex and intense. Lot of hops in the mouth - it is bitter, a little sweet, malty again. I get a touch of honey as well. The mouthfeel is a bit oily and resinous. This beer has a lot of body and the after taste is long and persistent. I’d rather have this beer after meal than before due to it’s heavy body. Very enjoyable one though!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,355 l bottle, best before 20/6/2015. Clear, golden yellow with a foamy, stable, white head. Lovely, fruity aroma of passion fruit, mango, lemon, orange and tangerine. Taste is pretty much the same with the addition of grapefruit. the finish is quite long-lasting, medium bitter, slightly alcoholic and warming. Very good. Medium body, slightly creamy texture, average carbonation. Very nice beer but I expected even more. Doesn’t really stand out.
