Bottle from SB. Cloudy golden with a medium white head. Fruity and flowery tones. Malt, fruit, flowers and bitterness. Medium body with a nice bitter finish. Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 11, 2013
The beer pours a dark golden copper color with tinges of orange. It produces a nice three finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly into a nice layer covering the beer and running around the edge of the glass. Big aroma on this. An immediate dankness rose up from the glass. I got hints of pine, with citrus, mild grapefruit with a hint of lemon. I also got big tropical fruits, definitely some mango. Maybe a hint of peach and a dash of apricot. There is also some nice malty sweetness coming through that masks the alcohol nicely. Starts off very soft on the palate. Not a ton of carbonation to speak of. A lot more lemon on the taste. Picking up a bit more peach and apricot on the palate as well. Middle of the mouth the bitterness comes back into play, some of that piney grapefruit. Slightly sweet towards the back and it finishes very clean. Not really any trace of the alcohol. The body on this is medium light to medium. It’s a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA. Dazz3 (1798) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2013

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 355ml bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours cloudy amber with a medium sized off-white head that leaves a fine lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, apricots, orange peels and a hint of lemon. Taste is similar to the aroma. Bitter and slightly sweet with a medium body and carbonation. A great fresh and juicy IPA.
