Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, orange, pine resin, malt biscuit, some caramel, grapefruit, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a dry generous hoppy bitter finish. A bit boozy, especially towards the end. Body is medium to full. Rich and heavy IIPA, lots of citrus with a big bittersweet flavour.

SeniorZozo (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2016
Aroma is nice floral hops, some malts and a touch of citrus. Taste matches the aroma. Floral hops make this flowery but in a good way.

bergstaden (2618) - Rros, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2016
Dark golden with a white head - Fruity tropical hoppy aroma - Malt body to support a good hop profile that has tropical fruits to it and a good bitterness - The tropical fruits from the hops goes into a dry finish - This was good

jjsint (2588) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Golden orange, mega-hazy. A bit of white head sits on top. Piney, gluey and pia colada-y in the nose. A hint of cantaloupe and a touch of PVC. Sugary sweetness starts the taste off, and there is a near simultaneous tenacious bitter in the back of the throat. Finish is slightly unbalanced, Id like a little less acidity. Fresh pineapple and dried banana chips in the aftertaste. A real treat despite a few flaws.
