Continues (234) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2015
From bottle. Pours golden and hazy with small head which stays long. Aroma is fresh, contains grass, pine and herbs. In taste it is...incredible I would say. Nelson Sauvin is there but in a pleasant way. First time I’ve encountered this. It’s different, it’s really good. Try it if you can. Calisky (2961) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 21, 2014

Gulbrun uklar med høyt hvitt skum. Lett sitrus. sitron mot hvetelukt. Lite smak, mer syrlig enn bitter. Kort. Mye kullsyre peponi (1894) - Hannover, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2014
Aroma: citrus, mango, lychee, riesling wine notes.
Appearance: hazy straw color, nice white head.
Taste: high bitterness (white grapefruit, pine), mango, quite dry, well-balanced.
Palate: medium body and really high carbonation (overcarbonated), bitter finish.
Overall: Quite good stuff, but really overcarbonated. It is really difficult to drink this beer in a such form.

0,33 l bottle from bierweltweit in Siegburg (BB 7/2/15). Clear pale golden-yellow with huge white, frothy head. It seems as all of the Hopfenstopfer IPA’s create those big heads. Heavy fruity aroma of passion fruit and mango. Yeasty, fruity aroma of passion fruit and mango with medium bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation, nice bitter finish. Wonderful beer! sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014

33cl bottle from bier deluxe. Hazy golden, huge frothy white head. Citrus quite strongly in aroma, some yeast and gooseberries. Flavor has citrus, yeast, gooseberries. Dry, very fizzy mouthfeel. Not that enjoyable due to the very high carbonation.
