UPDATED: AUG 21, 2019 Aroma: Strong hop forward aroma, with funky and citrus hops. There is a low level of spice in the background. The malts are low, and
Appearance: Crystal clear with a golden yellow color and a thick white head. The bubbles are mixed with small and medium bubbles. Head retention is good.
Flavor: Strong malt flavor initially, with low touches of caramel and toasted grains. This is quickly followed by a strong hop presence. The bittering hops are dominant, but do not overpower the palate because the sweetness from the malts cut the bitterness. The flavor hops are earthy, grapefruit and a small amount of mint. Balance is hoppy.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, medium body, no alcohol warmth. Moderate astringency noted from the bittering hops.
Overall: A strong IPA with a good balance of malts to tone down the bitterness. Overall a very pleasant IPA with a not too dominate after taste. Cybercat (8698) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2019 Pours clear coppery amber with a thick and frothy cream head. Aroma tempts with resiny hops, zesty orange that has more than a hint of grapefruit, and crisp fresh malt. Flavor offers refreshing piney hops, crisp malt, tangy citrus and a tropical hint that will take the edge off the hottest day. Texture supplies perky fizz and smooth, decent body. Let it elevate you - but not if you have to drive. hopdog (16143) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2019

UPDATED: APR 28, 2019 Can [many thanks to KevinReddirt, IP trade in Arnhem] at home. Clear golden to slight golden-amber color, medium to full sized white to off-white head. Aroma is lovely, hops hit my nose instantly upon opening, delicious. Flavor is hops, resinous hops all over, lightly pine and spruce notes, but mostly fruit hop-resinous (old school fruity hop, not the fruit juice you often get nowadays). Love it. Nicely bitter, though for me even a bit more bitterness would have been great. Body is decent ot medium, carbonation is soft to average. Very pleasant. Thanks a lot Kevin!
