coper color, aroma of pine, citrus fruits, toast, flavor of very sweet malts, caramel, citrus fruits, pine, little to sweet for me but good if you don’t like the big hop punch
Very distinctive taste. It is quite bitter and there is a time for this. There are more eloquent IPA's around, but if you feel like you need a punch in the face and a lick of a bear to smoothen it up, this is your beer.

Very sweet aroma of flowers (lilac?) with mead. Brass colour, fine head. Medium, herbalish bitterness, dry, very malty. Solid, easy to drink IPA, but nothing above that Orange_times (290) - UKRAINE - MAY 12, 2017
0.3l bottle. Pours amber colour with medium size off white head, murky liquid. Strong aroma of spruce, grapefruit. Medium sweet, highly bitter, no sourness. Medium body, thick feel, long lasting refreshing bitter aftertaste. Gangstergafje (1100) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
The looks of the beer isn’t bad. The beer has quite a dark orange color, with a nice medium cloudiness. It’s still possible to look trough it a bit, but it is far from clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft slightly off white foam. The foam retention isn’t bad. After a while a nice soft drape of foam still is left. Not bad.
The smell of the beer is nice. I smell some clear malts forming a nice base. There is also a nice spicy touch, reminding me a bit of pumpkin ale. Not strong, but a very gentle touch. The hops are nice. They are quite complex. They start off with a more floral aroma, but after a while some nice aromas of both citrus and some spices appear. This pairs very well with the sweet and slightly spicy malt aroma’s. Pretty well balanced smell to.
The taste is also very nice. Sweet base of malts, with again that spicy touch and also a sweet honey flavour. Besides are the strong floral hops, with some touches of citrus. Both sweets and bitters are well balanced, with a nice tiny refreshing acidity. Good one.
The palate is also nice. Medium body, quite smooth and a touch of creaminess maybe, and a nice medium high carbonation. The finish is nice and contains some nice alcohol and some nice bitter hops. All in all, a nice full IPA, filled with hops but also with an eye for tasty malts. I like it a lot.

The aroma, while good, falls a bit short for an IPA. However it’s so tasty and feels perfect in texture, one can almost overlook that. alvaro78 (477) - Sevilla, SPAIN - APR 21, 2017
