Poured from a 650ml bottle. Drunk 2 months after bottling. Smells nice but not too strong. Has a big fluffy head. First sip is actually a bit offensive, maybe I wasnt expecting this. I think thats coming from the Mandarina Bavaria, this gives it a real fruity element but not like with most IPAs that are kind of a juicy, tropical fruit. Alcohol level is definitely up front. Bitter, but nothing unmanageable. Not a bad beer but not one I would get again. The wheat is a bit non-existent, and the palate just takes a bit too much to get used to.

Cloudy amber orange color. Orange and citrus aroma. Big on palate with citrus and pine notes, slight sweet finish and aftertaste. Moderately full body and heaviness.

22 ounce bottle. Amber orange pour is topped by a large frothy beige head and clinging lace. Rich toasted malt nose has fruity notes. Toasted malt flavor has buttery, caramel notes. Spicy hops are complex with hints of red berry, orange, lime and coconut. Bittersweet hop finish is very tasty. Nicely done.

Draught @ 4th Avenue Pub. Cloudy bright orange with creamy off-white head, very faint citrus aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter grapefruit taste with initially sticky sweet malt, smooth body, long bitter grapefruit finish. I did not appreciate the sweetness of the brew. jgb9348 (6187) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Clear golden and peach-ish coloured body with a thinnish golden coloured head, about two centimetres tall. Aroma of alcohol, peaches, apricots, bright grain and toffee and a light dose of tropical fruit hoppiness. Medium-bodied; Strong sweet flavour at first with tropical fruits and grain along with a light hoppy and herbal note near the end along with alcohol and malt with a slight medicinal and astringent flavour. Aftertaste shows some depth with the fruit flavours from peach and apricots to tropical fruits and a light hoppy flavour with some herbs and a touch of alcohol near the end and a lot of warmth. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA with some smooth flavours, but a touch too astringent and deep with not enough complexity and robustness from the hops and malt. Decent to sample, but not worth searching out nor spending a lot of money on the large format bottle. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Beer Run in Charlottesville, Virginia on 26-February-2017 for US$9,49 sampled at my hotel room in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on 20-May-2017. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2017

amber color; hoppy aroma - citrus and tropical fruit notes; lots of citrusy hops with tropical fruit notes on a creamy, soft wheat base Strykzone (7300) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Bomber. Golden with a hint of amber hue. A big level white head. A complex hop aroma is kind of all over the place. Flavor is also hop centered. Wheat is kind of mixed with other malts and is not really noticed. This beer is about the hops. And they are good.
