Can@: pours amber golden slightly haze with foamy white head with good lacing. Aroma: toffe, almost caramely malt notes, with typical amarillo nose with apricot, citrusy, melon like notes. Flavor is very, very similar: intense hop profile, pretty well balanced with malt backbone, with notes mentioned above. Finish is slightly bitter. Body is medium, texture is soft, carbonation is moderate.

16-MAR-2016, can @home, from Kihoskh. Hazy orange with a lasting, lacing, White head. Loads of grape fruit. Fresh grape fruit juice and I guess also some grape fruit from the hops. Nice malty backbone with caramel, toast and fruit. Very smooth, sweet, bitter. Nice.

can from Alus Celle
A bit dissapointment- after Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget IPA it was like session IPA not IIPA. Medium bodied, overall sweet taste, medium to dark light malts flavor with a bit toasty flavor, not much hops kick at all - rather like diluted IPA. Although aroma was pleasant, not intense.

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and orange; ends slightly/medium bitter and dry with citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing sweetness with loads of orange, perfectly balanced by the bitter grapefruit finish. Great appearance and palate as well, just a very refreshing beer overall.

Cloudy orange with thin, non-dense white head. Aroma of fruity hops, orange, malts and some yeast. Taste is moderatelt bitter, lime, pine resin. Boozy kick towards the end. Medium body, low carbonation. Good, but the alcohol is not so well hidden.
