PowY (445) - AUSTRIA - OCT 2, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours orange amber with a white head. Fruity hoppy aroma (pomelo) with herbal notes along with lightly roasted malt. Medium body with a soft to medium body. Light sweetness with a medium bitterness that is well balanced. Good backbone of lightly roasted malt in front of flavors of ripe tropical fruits (mango, papaya, banana).

herrklemann (146) - AUSTRIA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours a hazy amber with a golden hue and a small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, pine, more caramel malts, pineapple, passion fruit, hay. Lightly sweet with only light to medium bitterness. Slick medium body with medium carbonation and a light bittersweet finish.
Pretty nice, but too heavy on the caramel malt aroma - could by a bit more dry. Still a pretty decent beer.

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, overripe fruit, and candy. Hazy copper/orange color, with a fat, frothy head. Caramel, overripe stone fruit, and a moderately bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Doesnt really seem to be an IPA.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
- trbes bernsteingelb mit guter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Citrus, Malz, verbunden mit einem leichten florealen Einschlag und einem Hauch von Kirsch - perfekte Carbonisierung - geschmacklich stehen die Malzaromen leicht im Vordergrund und werden von der Hopfenbitternis gekonnt umrahmt - ber dem Abgang schwebt dann nochmals diese eingangs erwhnte Kirschnote Fazit: Durch die leichte Kirschnote ein auergewhnliches, aber auch perfektes IPA

sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
Colour: Dark amber, hazy. Big, frothy beige head. *** Nose: Citrus and pinewood, with sweetish malts in the background (as indicated by colour!). *** Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, still a bit watery. Soft carbonation. *** Taste: Modest tropical fruit but strong pine and slightly sweetish caramel notes at the start. Bitter and slightly sour - and increasingly so towards the middle, where pine and resin are dominant. Resin is strong in the finish and aftertaste, with a mild lemony note on top. Caramel still there. *** Impressions: A powerful IPA with uncommon caramel notes, but still the "usual suspects" (citrus, pine, resin) are there, too. Alcohol is noticeable but not unobtrusive. A complex and satisfying beer, not a refreshing one!
