Pours a hazy orange-amber color, topped with a sizeable and lasting tan colored head. Lots of particles floating around. Initially some fruity notes, pine aroma and later on more biscuity and caramel aroma. Taste begins with some sweet biscuity notes, followed by a moderate hoppy bitterness and a slightly herbal aftertaste with some metallic notes. Not bad, but nothing really special. borre_m (1708) - NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle expired. Pours cloudy very slight head. Aroma is strong, but more malts then hops. Taste is also not the greatest. some bitterness, but aroma is too sweet. Drink before expiration date, but if its over, its still drinkable. MBarni (13) - SPAIN - DEC 6, 2014

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Concentrated fruits. Peach. Fruity, sweet taste, also orange peels. Bitterness doesn’t linger too long.

one of the enjoyable low-mid range ibu brews from the 2nd release. citrus fruit and a nice aroma and flavor. nothing elite, but it let’s you know this is a good hop to use :)"

Pours a hazy, carbonated, sediment filled amber color with thick tan head. A dark fruit and malt aroma. A strong malty taste with dark fruit, caramel, and light hop taste. Tastes more like a Belgian wheat than an IPA. A raisin/dark fruit aftertaste. Hop_Hedonist (644) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
Okay this is 6 months past use-by date but here goes - the usual (too) robust and (too) heavy (for me) roast malt base - decent complex herbal/piney aroma still there, which is mirrored on the palate - too short lived bitter kick - I like it, although it doesn’t set my world on fire.

Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy amber color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dusty dank hops with leafy notes and some biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by dank musty hoppy notes withleafy notes and some biscuit malt. Body is full with good carbonation. Another one where I do have to ask why do retailer keep overpriced IPA which don’t move with no freaking bottling date.
