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.

Slightly hazy amber with full cream colored head. Sweet malts with light roasted touch, massive tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, lychee). Even a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied with creamy feel. Lovely.

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!

simont1 (491) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 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.
