Deep orange coloured body, clear, with a good sized and thick white head on top.
Aroma of caramel malts, oranges, grass, faint spices, some grapefruit on the back.
Taste has citrus, oranges, grapefruit, piney finish, tropical fruits too, nicely hopped. Pretty bitter finish.
Medium thin body.
Nice one. bergstaden (3387) - Røros, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2017
Golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a hop profile that has fruity and herbal, spicy flavours - The hops with a good bitterness goes into the finish - This was good jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn. Golden and clear with massive visible carbonation and a huge white head. Strong scent of citrus and tropical hops (pineapple and melon in the foreground) with a pleasant biscuity malt leveller. Sweet taste... although the bitterness of the hop is used for a balance, this is a surprisingly sweet IPA. Finish is slightly more bitter. A bit more pineapple and banana in the aftertaste. It’s good but surprisingly low-key, and the alcohol is hidden well. Certainly worth trying. guitartown (225) - SPAIN - MAY 13, 2017
Botella 33cl. Un 99? En serio? Pues la mía estaba llena de cosas flotando y no me pareció naaada del otro mundo. Puede que una partida mala...

One of the best IPA’s I’ve had. Citrus aroma leaning toward grapefruit. Pillowy pour. Mainly resin flavors. Crisp and light bodied. edgallow (4689) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Draft pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, caramel and pine. Taste is caramel and citrus ricke49 (112) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Billed as an IPA, yet right up there with some DIPAs in abv at 7.5. Near Perfect blend of hops, malt yeast, with just enough alcohol tingle to produce an incredibly tasty, approachable, yet fairly strong/full flavor IPA. A true art of brewing creation - and priced reasonably. Appreciate the user friendly, non- hieroglyphic, dating on bottle. Msgriffi (48) - - APR 21, 2017
Aroma doesn't even wait for the bottle to be poured, it ascends immediately. Pine, citrusy, slight pungent aroma comes through the thick white head. Great aroma. Almost smells resinous. Golden enough to show it will have some malt. Medium body due to breast malt, but all hops from begging of sip to the end. Citrus, some pine, just clean bitter hops that follow the aroma exactly. Bitter enough for a ton of flavor but just holds from over done. Slightly warms. Great IPA.

Aroma is fair. Strong mouth feel—very hoppy. Carbonated taste through with crisp finish.
