7/28/11. Pours orangish/copper with thin white head. Hoppy aroma,citrusy,little malt. Hops flavor doesn’t stand out as much,the bitternesss is there,but not the hop flavor I wanted, little bit of grapefruit and orange,that’s it.caramel hints, not my favorite IPA,but its worth trying. I suggest raging bitch over this. mike_77 (6882) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Aroma and initial flavour is fruity and sweet. A bit peachy with some grapefruit too. Fruity hoppy, bitter finish. kschep (1707) - DENMARK - SEP 16, 2011

Nice strong hop aroma. Earthy pine and citrus. If I really focus I can detect a faint whiff of onion that some complain about with high aroma hopped beers. Pleasing amber pour with a rather disappointing thin head (could be my glass?). Flavor has a hint of toasted maltiness followed by a wash of hop bitterness. Rather low carbonation level with a medium bodied mouthfeel. Actually a very good IPA. I’d prefer more carbonation but otherwise well done. ibupain (14) - SPAIN - SEP 12, 2011
Color marrón oscuro fliltrado. Espuma blanca con un toque amarillo. Aroma complejo, por un lado hay un toque a lúpulos cíticos muy marcado y por otro hay un toque a malta y cereal torrefacto muy intenso. Entrada amplia en boca, intenso sabor, mezcla de caramelo y lúpulo muy potente. Post gusto amargo y toques torrefactos definidos y presentes. Un equilibro muy bien conseguido entre un amargor muy potente, y con muchos matices, y un toque maltoso, torrefacto y a caramelo que rendondea aroma y trago. Muy buen trabajo.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into tall glass.
Appearance: Clear copper with bubbly off-white head. Some nice lacing.
Aroma: Spicy, metallic hops with just a touch of citrus and fruity malt. Way too mild.
Taste: Fruity and biscuity malts with a relatively strong spicy and metallic bitter finish. Not much true hop flavor here.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body, very dry finish that is off-putting considering the taste.
Overall: Bitter but no substance, actually hard to drink. Not the greatest IPA by any stretch of the imagination, which is disappointing because both their standard Pale Ale and their DIPA are so strong. Kerbyba (2) - Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2011 does not count
Half way through a pint: lacing signals a quality brew, aroma has been subtle (was expecting a much more hoppy nose at 60 IBU’s, bitterness is present and balanced out quickly from a decent malt background. Overall impression: very hop backward. Not the worst beer in the fridge. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2011

Clear orange beer, white creamy head, unstable, adhesive, nice lacing. Aroma: sweet and fruity, pineapple, some citrus. MF: light carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity, little sweet sugary, citrus, bitter hops, watermelon. Aftertaste: very dry and bitter.
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Fruitige geur die doet denken aan vlierbloesem. Komt ook in de smaak erg terug, verder hop. Nasmaak licht bitter. joshmcg000 (388) - Iowa, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Pours clear gold with small white head. I can never get this stuff fresh, probably because it is overpriced, its way better fresh. But as it is its kind of metallic. Some slight floral and fruit taste gives way to a bitter hoppy finish. Nice body and carbonation though. When its fresh i remember alot more floral notes to it.
