brnandersen (3850) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2016
Sample from 33 cl bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, floral hops and exotic impressions. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes lasting dry and bitter with citrus fruits and lightly toasted notes. Excellent, fresh textbook ipa.

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2016
On keg at Six Degrees North, Edinburgh. Appearance - golden amber. Hazy and oily. Thin head but ok. Nose - limes and oranges. Taste - extremely sweaty. Like fresh sweat but very close to the armpit. Lime eventually comes through but it doesnt completely smashed through the sweat. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good balance despite the pungency of the sweat note.

Odeur de houblon prononce a sent le pamplemousse et le fruit de la passion avec une lgre note citronne, la couleur est orange plutt trouble, en gout les fruits reviennent en force cest trs quilibr et surtout dlicat. Elle laisse une bouche sche et son amertume discrte est agrable. Un vrai rgal!

jasonbenali (193) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Pours a clear amber with minimal head. Seriously citrus juicy aroma with pineapple, mango, grapefruit and light caramel. Taste is sweet with a long bitter finish. A little thin for its ABV. Proper hoppy IPA. A little more body and would be one of my favourites.

johnarktor (138) - FRANCE - DEC 7, 2016
Aroma: freshly cut grass, herbs, spices, pine bark, bitter orange ; Appearance: pale, golden/copper, clear, white foam ; Taste: medium to high bitterness ; Palate: full body, slightly oily / slightly creamy feel, average carbonation, a little bit astringent, long bitter finish. Overall a _very_ good beer. The bitterness is exactly the kind I like, the smell is long lasting, many volatile aromatic elements that stick for very long. 1st nose is especially pleasant, and followed by 1st sip that lives up to its promises. Dont be fooled by how clear it looks, this beer has an overwhelming aromatic power that makes it an instant favorite in my book.

Bottle, courtesy of Mat in EuroSwap 04/16. Aroma is tropical fruits, citric, some soap. Body is medium to heavy, lively carbonation, fruity and sweet, chewy and juicy. Lots of residual sweetness, decent bitterness. Super tasty. Great beer!

MelvinKalksma (1467) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and slightly/medium dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great idea to get these hops together, they create a tasty and yet mellow orange and tropical fruit flavour. Might have benefited from some Mosaic hops, to create some more intense fruit flavours.
