A good IPA courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Aroma was average. Could pick up some floral hops and grass. Wasn’t very strong. Pour was a nice bubbly dark gold with a one finger white head. Taste was much better than the aroma. Fiercely bitter with notes of passion fruit and ginger. The hops really drown everything else out which is fine by me. Nice carbonation round this beer out. If you don’t like one dimensional hop bombs stay away. For the rest of us, enjoy!
From can at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, courtesy of skullgeorge. Almost clear golden color with white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, pine, spruce, grassy, citrusy fruity, light tropical, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 29, 2017
Just ok. Both the aroma and flavor are just a little off. One of my less than impressed beers from these guys. Hopverdju (1266) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2017

Copper with a thick white head. Aroma of ripe fruit and pine. Nice up front maltiness but flavors wash out rather quickly. Short finish. Needs more flavoring and bittering hops. However, this one would more easily pare with food than most IPAs. ciocanelu (2528) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 13, 2017
Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some bright hops with tropical fruit flavors. Taste has also nice fruity hop flavors, not too bitter, really hoppy and tasty. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth. Really well made, easy drinking, aromatic IPA. tricksta_p (4648) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2017
Can from Beergium. Aroma is fruity Nelson hops, stone fruits, peachy, biscuity malt, pine, orange, grapefruit, mild floral notes, touch of candied fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium. Very nice royally hopped IPA. Towey1989 (2818) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Can at The Leeky Tap, Leek. A hazy amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, pine, resin, some mango, slight orange, a little fruit and subtle floral hops. Taste of orange, resin, some grapefruit, slight mango, toasted malts, a little caramel and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, slight toasted, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Citrus, resinous and floral hops coming through the American grain bill of toasted malts and caramel, however the Nelson quality isn’t there. Short finish too. More like a standard pale ale. mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
On tap at Mother Earth, pours a clear bright golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a very fresh citrus and dry piney hop character, along with toasted crackery malt. Flavour is wonderfully structured, with the Nelson hops coming out wonderfully, with its characteristic citrus tangy quality, followed by some piney hops and toasted crackery malt. Bold without being abrasive in any way and leaving very low astringency on the finish. Excellent.
