Shady copper with a medium, white head.
Sweet and piney aroma with a lot of tropical fruits.
Fresh mouthfeel and a rather light body.
Medium, grass bitterness.
Topical fruits and piney citrus in the flavour. Pyobon (1418) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2012
( bottle) NB. I am not sure whether this should be listed as a different beer - same brewer, same name, but clearly a different recipe - my guess is that this is based on the very well received Rare Breed IPA special they did recently. Anyway... Clear golden brown with loose, short-lived beige head. Awesome aroma: intense and attractive - floral, citrus, pine. Light body, medium not very fine carbonation. Flavour is very pleasant and satisfying. The floral and fruity, lemon and pine notes of the hops are present from the start and overlay a nice gentle maltiness. At the finish the hops develop a distinct cleansing bitterness which lasts; it’s not overwhelming like many IPA/APAs. Overall a very pleasant beer. pilsnerrogge (2961) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012

(bottle) Poured hazy golden amber with decent off-white head. Beautiful aroma - floral and fruity - pineapple and passion-fruit. Wonderful mouthfeel - plentiful soft carbonation on a medium body. Flavour has a tangy fruity start (grapefruit, pineapple, passion-fruit) on some subtle undertones of sweet malt. This moves to an impressive, but not overwhelming, hoppy bitter finish. Overall, an excellent hop-driven IPA that doesn’t take things too far.

Pours a hazy amber colour. Head is large and thick. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit and soap. Flavour is resiny pine, wood and grapefruit. Long and big bitterness. Mouth feel might be a bit on the thin side but it’s still a pretty good IPA.
Brunorange, lätt grumlig öl, med ett gräddigt vitt skum. Melon, kiwi och blommor i aromen, men där finns också något av fadd doft, som en jordkällare. Härliga smaker av grape, apelsin, russin och tallbarr. En trevlig IPA. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of pine, resin, needles and bitter grape-fruit.
beer_est_deus (1306) - örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Appearance: A clouded amber brew with an off-white head leaving little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Sweet bread, toffee, pine soap, citric juices and peels.
Palate: Medium carbonation, fresh texture, medium low body, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Very much in the smell, a bit short in the body. But not bad ...

Doftar söt malt, kaffe, kola, tropiska frukter, honung och jord. Smakar kaffe, kakao beska, citrus, ananas, jord, omogen banan, bränt socker. "Vuxen" eftersmak, bark och Citrus.

Nice enough. larsga (7567) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation.
Fruity metallic toffee aroma with perfumy earthy raisiny notes.
Unusual aroma. Dry-sweet vinous pineapple taste with earthy
resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish
burnt caramel and resin aftertaste with tropical fruit and
gooseberry notes. Interesting and drinkable. Quite refreshing,
too. (0.75l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan, Göteborg.) SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2012
