drjoeng (1798) - SINGAPORE - DEC 28, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2018 6.5%ABV. IPA. Tapped out deep gold. 12°SRM. Nose has aromas of pine, citrus peel, and spruce. There is also a good full malty funk. As it warms, the spicy, fresh herb aromas start to emerge suggesting cilantro and parsley. Mouthfeel is juicy and round. Full and pleasing. Palate has flavors of barley toast, fresh biscuits. Hop flavors are aggressive featuring resin, sap, and alkaloid type flavors that suggest poisonous plant extracts. Finish is lingering with a deep resinous, ponderous sappy bitter that is almost oily. Overall, a really nicely balanced IPA that has a kick-in-the-groin deeply resinous bitter finish, which is likely to be the enduring impression of this beer. For me, it was the grain bill that was the unsung hero on this allowing the ponderous hop profile to be slowly and continuously tasted.

jmgreenuk (12936) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 28, 2018
Tap at Beer Republic, Bangkok. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is grassy, light pine needle, citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry malt, light fruity, woody hop bitter palate and a long bitter. Medium bodied with average to soft carbonation.

olio (11842) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 20, 2018
355 ml can.
Pours clear copper color with a large white head. Resinous hoppy aroma, malts, pine needles, orange and some grapefruits. Flavor is bitter malty, resinous hoppy, some caramel notes, slightly oily feel from the hops too. A solid resinous IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (9885) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 16, 2018
355ml can. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy and caramel malty aroma, notes of lemon, orange, hints of grapefruit. Taste is citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon, a touch of lime, hints of grapefruit and orange, slightly too weak caramel malty backbone. Flawless yet unspectacular West Coast IPA.

teddybeer (5210) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2018
355ml can
Coppery color, off-white head with some lasting and nice lacework. Aroma with a high presence of grapefruit, resin hops and light caramel. Flavor with a decent bitterness, good maltiness, peach andgrapefruit notes. Bittery final with astringent mouthfeel.

AleRider78 (2088) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2017
Pours a large frothy, foamy head that gives off good dirty lacing. Aromas of hops, lemony, and oranges. Flavours are very citrus oriented. Oranges, grapefruit, mild lemon with mild floral hops and very mild malts. Nice warming sensation. Hoppy bitterness found in an IPA, this one’s much more apparent. Really nice taste ant not too bitter. Good balance.

Brettsky06 (540) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 2, 2017
Orange pour. Light citrus aromas and flavours. Bit of pine. Taste the yeast as well. Nice IPA

ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 4, 2016
In the glass the beer pours a hazy amber color with a medium head. Aroma has some malts, caramel and some citrus. The taste has some citrus along with hops and some resin. Pretty smooth beer with an average finish.

adamnowek (4886) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Super fresh and fruity nose. Smooth, resinous texture. Moderately bitter taste.
