Fantastic aroma! Lemon and grapefruit. The taste is similar. Dry and bitter finish. Maybe just a little bit more carbonation.

250ml on tap at Namtons house bar. Thin creamy white head. Very hazy golden pour. Lovely bitterness.

330 ml bottle. bought in a liquor store in Sydney. Clear golden color, low head. Nice smell, some almonds and pepper on top of all that hop. Very complex and fully taste, fantastic, takes all your mouth and no chance to escpae from it. Lovely beer, would have it again. A double ipa that is not all bitternes, but taste as wel.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Not the bad boy they claim. While hoppy, not bitter or overpowering. Best thing about it, the aroma. Pineapple fruit punch.

Pours golden-orange with just a slight haze. Full on ripe tropical fruits in the nose - should be sweet but all of these hops are making this feel quite dry actually. Without hops it would be barleywine but this one is still relatively fresh. OK, next I bite into a pile of hops. There is also some more ripe fruits, pears, some orange, mango and papaya. Finish is dry, bittersweet and displaying resins, pine needles quite well. Good stuff, really great fix for any hop cravings you might have.

There’s loads of resinous hops in this absolute bomb, together with plenty of grapefruit and a heap of alcohol. It’s a little overwhelming, even for my tastes as a big IPA fan.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. An orange light opaque beer with a medium white head ; medium retention ; ok lacing. Fruity+ (tropical fruits, red berries, citrus), resin, herb, light alcohol, light biscuit. Medium round sweet, medium to heavy dry bitter refreshing, sunny atmosphere, light spicy. Good body, medium oily texture, average to soft carbonation, bittersweet dry fruity finish. Overall, delicious !

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, grape, orange, tropical fruit, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, grape, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a bucket full of a perfect mix of hops. Sweet orange, mango and a mix of soft grapes, melon and pineapple; with a superb finish of rather bitter citrus and grapefruit. Great aroma and appearance as well.

Bottle 33cl. Cloudy yellow with a white creamy head. Hoppy aroma with hints of malt. Very concentrated flavour, citrus, pine, malt and heaps of hops. Long lasting finish.

kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear gold with white film. Ripe orange, a little stale aroma. Sweet and then a little bitter with honey undertones. Medium body, honey finish, rather sticky and fizzy.
