fidelis83 (2497) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Clear orange pour with a 1 finger, frothy, off white head. tons of orange, grapefruit, floral and berry candy in the aroma, some caramel, biscuit and cereal backing that up. Flavor offers up some nice cereal and caramel notes up front, hanging on strong as the big hit of orange, grapefruit and berry come in, then some fruity and doughy yeast and a large dose of floral hops and mineral notes near the finish. Medium body, nice creamy feel nearly all the way through, a bit more dry to the finish, moderate carbonation. Fantastic IPA, though it has a heavier feel and ABV% than some beers claiming a DIPA/IIPA designation, so it might not be quite as refreshing as some of it’s contemporaries. However, it makes up for it by being a really well executed, very enjoyable beer.

Piwo koloru pomarańczy, klarowne. Niezła biała piana. Aromat chmielowy, lekko słodowy. W smaku goryczka skontrowana lekką słodyczą. Ciekawa IPA

Fills a glass with bright hazy orange. Big orange grapefruit nose and flavours upfront. Citris peel for zesty marmalade flavour. Bold hoppy ipa with excellent sweet bitterness balance. Bitterness lingers. Boozy as it warms finishing with a sour citris tang.

From a bottle. Delicous but maltier than expected, hard to tell when we get a bottle that has travelled half the world if that’s what they intended.

An excellent balance of malt and citrusy hops, smoothe to the palate, and immensely drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
