Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Murky amber-brown with white ring. Sweet aroma - a little hoppy, skunk, peach and some spices. Alcoholic bitterness and some fruit in the mouth. Full-bodied, very mild carbonation. Long, fruity and alcoholic finish. Nice.

TXBadger (1918) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours a cloudy/hazy golden color, with fairly white head. Citrus and pine on the nose; follow onto the palate. Not much depth with this one, fairly one dimensional. I didn’t pick up much from the malt on this one.

SimonBeer (112) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 (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!
