2016-05-07. Crisp yellow body with a nice white head. 3++ Aroma is pleasant but a touch muddled, nice hop character, lemon and grass, light resin. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, light lemon, grass, light alcohol throughout. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Very nice but the hops are not quite as vibrant as I hoped. 3+ 7/3-4/7++/3/16 Bottle from Glengarry Wines, Auckland, NZ.
suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange amber beer, small white head. Nose is citric, fruity, intensely so, some spruce and resin, malt, caramel. Flavor is hoppy, piney, some grapefruit and oranges. Pine bitterness in the finish with more oranges, alcohol warmth, caramel, resin. Dangerously drinkable for the ABV. martjoobolut (4230) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle (from Koht). Pours dark golden with whiteish head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is hoppy, piney, caramel, sweetness. Flavor is sweet and bitter, pine, caramel, malt. slight alcohol. Finish is piney bitter. Overall: very nice. adasko (2232) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Fresh NZ hops in the aroma - oily and fruity notes. Almost clear golden color. Small white head, perfect lacing. Nice thick body, not exactly full but close to that. It’s a bit to sweet in taste. There is a big lack of bitterness which would counter the sweetness. It’s definitely not a session beer, more like setting and sipping one. Very good one.

500 mL bottle. Clear light amber pour, couple fingers of semi creamy head. Big hop aroma (and taste), very tropical, grassy. Excellent, wish I had had a west coast brew to compare it to.

On tap. Standard IIPA with stock aroma and taste and booze you’d expect from this style. Bit of a shame its so average lialeh (11) - - MAR 9, 2016
Juicy alcohol aroma / Orange clear look / Medium body / Soft carbonation / Rich IIPA doori (14) - - MAR 9, 2016
I just love it. The smell of citrus fruits and flowers. Rich ambler color and its subtle caramel aroma is also very attractive. Malty and hoppy. waterbottle (17) - - MAR 9, 2016
Citrus, floral, malty scent. Standard golden color. Nice blending of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. drjoeng (1230) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
8.8%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out a rich amber. 16°SRM.
Nose has nice rich pine freshness. There is also the aroma of ripe pineapple and sweet citrus, like ripe tangerines or Yuzu. There is also a residual sweet maltiness to the nose. Very inviting.
Mouthfeel is soapy. The palate is graham cracker, caramel, burnt sugar and toasty malt sweet. A good base upon which to taste the hops which are pine, grass, light resin and sap.
Finish is medium and satisfying.
