DevinFiachra () - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
In my opinion this is the definitive German take on the New England IPA. Too many have tried and failed with their iterations of this style.
The colour is between orange/grapefruit rind. The body is voluptuous, full, and hazy like tropical juice. The head is compact with small/medium bubbles.
The aroma leaps from the glass and evokes notes of peach/apricot flesh, passionfruit, freshly cut grass and fresh squeezed orange juice.
The taste is sweet and fruity. Again confirming the nose.
The carbonation is low which gives the beer an almost chewy character. The finish is abrupt and characterised by a gentle bitterness.
Overall a fantastic beer and one of my favourites of 2017. wunderkath (11) - - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a cloudy, hazy gold. Hops instantly come through in the aroma. Flavour of grapefruit, passionfruit, citrus, other fresh tropical fruit. Nice balanced bitterness, could drink this all night! cbnz (107) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Hazy body with not much head, super fresh fruit bomb. Citrus and tropical fruit all over this thing. Not overly balanced but it’s an IPA, who honestly wants balance? Fisler (693) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2017
Also schöner geht’s nicht - herrlich trüb, Milchschaum, geil! In der Nase herrliche Mango, setzt sich im Trunk fort. Sanft, cremig, süß. Großartiges Bier! haukur (2103) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - AUG 31, 2017

On tap. Orange color, medium white head. Aroma pinaple, mango, fruit. Taste juice, pineaple, tropical fruit, melon, grapefruit, citrus hint, light body. Very interesting, definitely worth of trying. martjoobolut (5123) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2017
Tap at billie’ bier cafe (a new recipe). Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is really hoppy, fruity, noticeable mosaic presence. Flavor is sweet and slight bitterness, some fruits, mosaic like oilyness/garlic. Body is really light. Overall: great, love the mellowness. hajsman (377) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAY 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Tap at Hopfenreich. Juicy, fruity like NE IPA should be with moderate bitterness. Nice and refreshing
