4x0,33l bottle, IPA Is Dead four-pack from Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, orange color with medium, white head. Resiny and fruity odor. Less pine, soft, sweet fruity aroma. Much lighter bitterness than HBC and Galaxy. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Fruity and a bit honey finish. This hop is very delicious too, but much less bitter. It has dried fruity, honey and sweer flavours mostly. It’s a light but rich aroma hop. Koyo (250) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. This hop was not all that exciting to me, a fair and balanced bitterness but flavourwise it would have been more present. compared to other IPA is Dead-beers this one was a bit on the malty side. A slight sweetness and some tropical fruits in the aroma but not as much as for example Citra. Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2012
Pours orange with nice, off white head. Head settles fast.
Aroma: Wow! Pungent with tropical fruits, grapefruit, caramel and citrus. Really nice!
The taste is also nice. Well balanced between the sweetness and bitterness, full and lasting. Really like it! Rasmus40 (21983) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2012

Amber color with a tiny white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, lychee, caramel and some citrus. Flavor is a bit sweet and fruity hoppy with grapefruit, lychee and caramel malt. Medium body and sligtly bitter aftertaste. jonno (2911) - JAPAN - AUG 3, 2012
Lovely fruity nose melded with caramel. Well balances, but drinks much bigger than 6.7%. Fruity and some pine and citrus, lychee pineapple and rough around the edges quality. Top notch. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2012
from Erzbierschof - clear amber-orange beer with a nice head retention; correct lacework; the hop is mainly fruity showing hints of apricots and mango; velvety palate and medium to full malt backbone; a charming and decent bitterness, slightly almondy and fairly fruity hoppy finish; quite dry gowdy (1116) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle from Craig drunk at Naomi’s house. Bright golden colour. Minimal head and gas. Grima (2506) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2012
The beer is light copper colored in the glass with a flat, off-white. It smells very hoppy-citrussy, grapefruit, orange, and herbs. Starts with lots of citrus hops and exotic fruits (papaya, mango), in the background dominated by grapes. The middle part is hoppy and fruity, citrus, with lots of exotic fruits, coupled with a subtle hop bitterness and a slight caramel flavor. Goes into a very fruity, hoppy and bitter finish, again with lots of exotic fruits!
