Rated on 01-12-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine hops, floral, orange, and malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, pine hops, and some malt. The mouthfeel is somewhat aggressive and this beer is medium-full bodied. A quaffable IPA but the hop flavor could be better than it is. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. Bottle.
3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Bright floral and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pine underneath. Hop forward, but also contains a pleasant caramel and crackery malty backbone. Really nice.
3.75 T: Tastes like it smells. Mild-moderate bitterness. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, and piney hop flavor. Caramel and cracker malt.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Surprisingly good beer. I had never heard of this brewery until I bought this beer, so I didn’t know what to expect.

Flaska. Oklar mörkorange öl med ett stort och långvarigt lätt smutsat skum. Dofter och smaker av malt, grapefrukt, apelsinskal och tall. Medel mot stor beska, lätt men tillräcklig sötma. Medelkropp. fidelis83 (2443) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Hazy gold pour with a two finger creamy to soapy eggshell head. Aroma is caramel, biscuit, fruity, floral and citrus hops, hints of pine, melon and toasty bread. Flavor is caramel, bread, herbal hops, light spiciness and a hint of dankness up front, then husky, astringent grain, woody astringency and pine. Light body, medium, sharp carbonation, dry, slightly astringent finish with a notable hop acid bite. Pretty god overall, very bitter and dry, but well balanced enough to not make those qualities unpleasant. wlajwl (6817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Aroma is light pine, fruit and a hint of spices. The flavor is hops, grapefruit, malts and a unique tart/bitter finish.

Very floral hop aroma with caramel smell bursting through. Taste is pine needles initially followed by bitter grapefruit. Some faint straw and rose water. LiMuBai (222) - - JUN 18, 2015
Pours a golden copper. Light notes of grapefruit in the aroma. The taste has a super bitter finish, and a strange metallic aftertaste. Quite possibly the worst IPA ever. bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2015
APPEARANCE - pours a light coppery goodness, with a stark white head that sticks around through the full drink.
NOSE - get the scent of very earthy hops - perhaps grassy.
FLAVOR - somewhat floral, somewhat earthy hop flavor. Really excellent blend. Pairs well with spicy southwestern style foods. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
355 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of gooseberries, floral notes and some yeastiness. Flavour of gooseberries, really heavy bitterness, citrus and herbs. Medium bodied. Harsh, lingering bitter finish. Not fresh, but very bitter. A bit unrefined. olio (10291) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Lots of gooseberry bush on the aroma, faint cardboard notes and grapefruits, some hops are there though. Gooseberries and grapefruits on the flavor, way too much carbonation ..and cardboard..nation. Old, sadly.
