Bawelt (277) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 14, 2016
Bonne ! Nez entre des agrumes douces et un fond tropical (mangue) : joli équilibre. En bouche, on a une attaque assez ronde, fruitée qui part vite sur une amertume nette sans être agressive. Finale plutôt sèche et portée sur les agrumes. Très agréable.

Bobson (46) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle @ home with Thompson. Smell gives some yeast and herbs. Looks very cloudy although that could be from the previous beer. Tastes fresh at the start but then gives you some yeast and herbs. Overall, extremely solid beer I’d happily drink again.

Pours orange amber, haze, with mousse-like off white stable head. Visually medium carbonation. Intense hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, peaches, pinneapple, pine, supported with malt aroma, which takes on toffee. Flavors: intense hop flavors, which takes on peppermint, pine, grapefruit, mint, passionfruit and apricots, supported with malt flavors in the background. Taste is slightly sweet, in the middle high bitter, with slightly dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is somehow typical american ipa-isch, Body is moderate medium, texture is silky soft, carbonation is medium. For my point of view it would be much better if body was a little fuller.
