COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A full-bodied, full-on Double IPA combining caramel and malt flavours with a well-balanced and substantial bitterness, which is topped off by a tantalising hop aroma with notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Light carbonation allows the full flavour of this beer to shine through.

Nikokaoja (207) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - MAR 18, 2017
16. 3. 2017, Ljubljana, Gas station. Bottled. Medium bodied stronger ale with pronounced hoppines. Perhaps more on the hoppier side of flavour. Still good enough though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rand (1670) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Orangy beer with an average off-white head and slight sparkling. Malted and fruity aromas, caramel and roasted, pineapple, peach and spices. The taste is soft and spicy, moderate of citrus. The caramel coats the bitterness, presence of yeast. It’s neither dry nor sweet. A beer between two styles.

Color cobrizo carbonatacion baja y espuma de poca retención. Aromas sutil a cítricos, predomina el aroma dulce. Al paladar ligera de beber, notas frutales y cítricos suaves, amargor sutil para el estilo, predomina el sabor a maltas dulces. Opaca la cerveza, sobre todo por el estilo que es esta cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McNeillR (2298) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Clear golden, no head. Nose is very sweet, very caramel. Initial taste is firmly sweet, white grapefruit and pineapple but far too sweet and no vibrancy. Carbonation is sleek and mouthfeel quick enough. Finishes much re sweetness but it’s worryingly balanced in this regard which does it all the favours.

Bottle from Vineyard, "Do we really need this tasting?" tasting"

Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, apricot, niney notes, a little spice and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

dnicolaescu (2477) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 2, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear copper, beige head with lacing. Crystal malts, caramel and lollipops, faint piney hops and notes of alcohol. Kind of the opposite to what a good modern IPA should be (even if this bottle is not fresh).
