(Drinking date: 18 April 2014) Hazy ruby-caramell-coloured beer. Both creamy and frothy layer of white foam. Looks good. Really delcious aroma of hops. Fruity aroma, strawberry, apricots and peach. Also a delicious taste. It starts sweet, then a bitterness comes in, and it ends with a bittersweet aftertaste. Fruitiness of red ripe fruits is in this beer all the time. The body is also good. Medium carbonation, and a little bit of thick body. Also a bit of a burning feeling of the alcohol. Overall, this is a delicious beer. A really fruity and hoppy IPA, really delicious. That?s why I give this beer the total score of 4.1!

SimonTja (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Pours orange with a nice dense head. Aroma is a lot of simcoe, some blood orange, some tangerine, a lot of citrus, and grass. Taste has a clean sharp bitterness upfront, not a lot of tropical fruitiness, which allows a sort of nutty, a bit-too-sweet-for-an-ipa-maltiness to come forward... otherwise very crisp and nice, probably tons better fresh, was 6 months old.

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Brown-orange pour with a huge pillowy dirty white head. Aroma is sweet toffee, cereal, orange, burnt sugar. Tastes are caramel, pine, grass, pineapple with a yeasty tea vibe. Thin slick palate with faint background carbonation. Very nice, enjoyed this.

DSG (5052) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 4, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Hazy orange. Hoppy aroma of pine, some citrus, marmalade and some malt. Sweetish malty flavor, with piney and citric hops, strong bitterness and a light alcoholic note. Medium-bodied.

gkeh (139) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2014
Pours a nice cloudy dark amber. Massive light brown billowy head. Great lacing. The aroma is interesting. Biscuit, bready malts, some toasted malts as well. Very malt forward. I’m a fan though! Chewy mouthfeel. The hops are nondescript. just bitterness. Not my idea of an IPA, but I like the beer nonetheless.
