Very hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Smooth palate but it still has good fine minerally carbonation. Sweet caramel - creamy malts, a little dry and thin though. Marmalade hops, a slightly odd apple tone. Florlaness. Light finish brings mild hop spice. Okay.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque vibrant orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of tropical fruits, particularly oranges, followed by mango and pineapple, some resinous hops, and a touch of caramel malt. Flavour brings out loads of oranges upfront, followed by loads of resinous an citrus hops, and ending on notes of residual sugar notes and citrus hoppy bitterness. There is a bit of tanginess as well, likely due to the Nelson Sauvin hopping. This is a big n bold IIPA with a solid caramel malt backbone that never quite overdoes it. Great stuff, but still a bit chewy for a IIPA. saxo (20028) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2015
