(bottle) murky greyish-golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of soy sauce and herbal hops, with a touch of strawberry syrup, some sugar icing and flaked oats. flavour is mostly mango juice and strawberries, slightly leafy, with some more oatmeal and a light-bitter floral-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. dzudohonor (368) - POLAND - OCT 25, 2017
thanks to Anstei. Ładny aromat tropików, cytrusów, typowy West Coast, trochę przypominający mi piwa z Pracowni, w smaku bardziej płasku, trochę przeszkadzało mi za wysokie nasycenie, ale ok nieźle. Ritzn (2228) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Murky golden with big white head. Aroma is lychee, grapefruit, bonbon, mandarin, a bit pine cone, forest. Taste is sweet fruity with lots of hoppyness and a bitter hinge. Slightly harsh while swallowing. Very drinkable and well balanced. This works well. jonas (8625) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy orange, huge white lace. Metallic tropical hops, bubblegum. Medium full sweet creamy body, fruit nectar, light candy notes, apple gum, raspberry again. There is certainly a new house note in the beers. SinH4 (7034) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle, many thanks anstei! Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is strawberries, milky, not much more. Taste is resinous, strawberries, piney, some toasted malts. High but soft carbonation. Was there a yeast change at 523? I don't dig this strawberry cream character. Not the 523 quality I am used to.

courtesy of Jasmina - pours a very hazy amber-blond beer with a long head retention; fresh and clean hoppy nose of tropical fruits and herbs; medium-bodied, lively palate, subtle carbonation; late and well-integrated bitterness; clean juicy and fruity hoppy finish with a lingering spicyness anstei (2848) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Bottle from the webshop. Pours cloudy amber with a big head that wants to move in with me, it just stays. Aroma is citric, floral, tropical fruit, also some grass, little soap. Body is medium, sweet and softly bitter, with a lively but not super active carbonation. Texture is slightly oily, with some burning hops spice. Typical 523 breadiness. Actual, all of this is typically 523 westcoast IPA. But they're good, so there we go.
