Clearish golden coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of super fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and earth - super strong with a lot of residual sugars and alcohol noticeable as well. Full-bodied; Strong hop flavours at first that literally taste like a hop juice with all the sugars noticeable. Aftertaste shows more well-rounded flavours with earth, pine, grass, hay and malt with the sugars and the hops. Overall, a very nice and hop/sugar-centric beer with a good finish and complexity at the end, full of alcohol as well. Nice to sample even West of the Left Coast! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Malama Market in Haleiwa, O’ahu, Hawaii on 21-August-2016 for US$7,88 sampled a day later in my hotel room in Waikiki, O’ahu, Hawaii on 22-August-2016.

Orange pour with a healthy off white head. Lemony front head with a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Well done. ha1ag (959) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2016
Bottled in Frape (as usual). Hazy dark orange with thin off white head. Fruity nose. Aroma is fruity, spicy and citrus tones. Flavor is sweeter, fruity, citrus. Spicy and bitter hoppy finish. teamsale (317) - Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head and mild lacing. Smells of berries, copper, fruit. Tastes like a hundred flavors, really really flavorful, one of the best tasting I’ve had. Perfectly balanced. A little copper taste in the aftertaste is the only knock I have on this one. MarcoDL (5468) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle. Golden copper color. Aroma of caramel, mild pine and resinous hop. Soft taste of bitter caramelised malt, pine, herbs, some grapefruit and a very bitter finish. Allright. fkoolen (1400) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 Bottle at home. Almost clear golden colour, offwhite firm creamy head. Big spruce, resinous pine, grassy, herbal, grapefruit, sweet malty backbone, crisp and beautifully building bitterness. Lingering spruce, pine aftertaste. Big body, low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Maybe a tat too sweet, but a very decent DIPA.
