Not nearly as good as hopwired. Taste is too malty. Nothoppy enough to be considered a true IPA. Some might like it but for me it's not pleasant. Not disgusting but no too tasty

Bottle. Pours a clear reddish beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma has massive hoppy notes, lots of ripe tropical fruits, a hint of caramelized malts, floral notes. I wouldn’t be suprised if they used New-Zealand hops in this beer. Flavor is strong bitter, balanced over to the bitter side of the palate, which is perfectly fine. Quite high in carbonated mouthfeel, long in bitter aftertaste with some toasted caramel notes in there. Quite nice! Iznogud (3796) - CROATIA - JUN 29, 2017
On tap at Vrteška, 2017. Pours amber with medium off-white head. Malty, caramel, fruity, oranges, some hops, probably not the freshest. Sweetish, some bitterness in finish, medium bodied. Mister_Li (1373) - GERMANY - JUN 16, 2017

330 ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Looks: Clear amber red colour; One finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant full Ale malt, with strong caramel, rich toffee, citrus peels, light tangerines, floral, strong molasses, pine, strong resins, spices, earth, biscuit, lemon and grass.
Taste: Close to medium sweet strong Amber malt, with grapefruits, strong caramel, toffee, strong floral, molasses, pine, strong resins, spices, strong herbs, dry biscuits, strong lemon, very strong bitter hops and grass.
Body: Full body; Thick and very oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Quite rich Amber maltyness in a thick background, smoothness is oat-like. Strong oozy hoppiness dominates throughout, with pine, grapefruits, spices and strong herbs to compliment solid caramel and toffee. Flowery with just right sweetness. Biscuity with strong lemon to round. Very good!
Hoppiness: Citrus peels, light tangerines, floral, pine, strong resins, spices, earth, lemon and grass in nose. Grapefruits, strong floral, pine, strong resins, spices, strong herbs, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, more than high astringent bitter-sweet herbal malty finish.
After taste: Quite dry. Oozy, spicy and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: Its Amber maltyness is rich already, with rock solid IPA style resiny citrus hoppiness for a well-balanced tasting sensation. A damn good English-style red IPA!
Pours a red colour. Taste is quite fruity dry and hoppy on the palate. A very good beer Marko (5682) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 7, 2017
On tap at Vrteška. Thanks... someone... :D Clear amber body, off white head that went away fast. Oily malty aroma, light tangerine. Light malty taste, vague flowery and citric hoppy undertones. Yeah, not an IRA, closer to an Amber Ale. But meh however you put it. markoijelena (3121) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - APR 24, 2017
Draft 0.15l at Craft & Draft Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 04.04.2017. Taste with kermis. Pour it amber color with small white head. Aroma peanuts and herbal hoppy feel. Taste nice red blood oranges, grapefruit, sweet, smooth creamy texture, medium to full body, thick feel, average carbonation, bitter pleasent finish. eljebi (96) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 15, 2017
Roja cobriza, muy bonita en copa. Aunque no estaba en toda su plenitud, buen equilibrio entre maltas, caramelo, afrutados y resinosos. Cuerpo medio y sabroso, de sabor caramelizado y con las notas tan características del simcoe en un final resinoso y especiado con postgusto otra vez maltosa. Chula!

Amber red colour with nice head that left beautiful lacing as it dissolved. Aroma has caramel malts, raisin and dried fruits, pines and grass hops too. Taste is sweet with caramel malts, raisin, ends with pines and grass hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Way too much caramel malts for me, maybe the hops have disappeared already, who knows.
