A reddish copper colour, a head is almost medium and blond. Aroma has caramel malts, peaches, mandarin, some pine forest. Overally, the aroma is quite sweet but also fresh and not too heavy or caramel. Taste has citrusfruits and mandarin, also some harsh fruitness, less caramel malts than in the aroma but the body is still quite strong. At least medium bitterness, not dry, good balance. Medium+ bodied, quite fresh to drink. Quite unique flavours of fresh hops but there are also familiar notes.

08-MAY-2015, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer.
Almost clear orange/dark golden with lasting, lacing off-white head.
Aroma is bitter hops. Grape fruit and pine. Taste is grape fruit and pine but also quite some malty with bread and caramel and a touch of fennel.
"Old fashioned" style IPA with a lot of bitterness and cascade-like hops. It is sweet but never cloying. I like it but...
...no real but. Except the price tag. Way too expensive here. tmrmwel (2058) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. So what’s the point of this rather un-fresh fresh frog one might be tempted to ask? Well, it was there, wasn’t it. Pours dark golden orange, with a big creamy head. Aroma is massively sweet tropical hops, with pineapple and passion fruit, as well as herbs and floral notes, and malts with toffee and caramel. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet hoppy, with apricots and tropical notes, and roasted malts with bread and toffee, followed by citrusy bitter orange peel lasting throughout the finish. A bit old and rather off, but still shitloads of hops. Next time, it should be enjoyed straight from the hop vine. Desverger (11107) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 30, 2015

Bottle. Hazy dark orange pour with some sediments and dense offwhite head. Aroma has flowers and tropical fruit. Taste has instant bitterness but then becomes more subtle. Nice malt profile behind the hoppyness. Full body and quite high carbonation Stuu666 (13093) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2015
