The smell is malty, hops, one of the best smelling beers I have had. Beautiful honey blonde just like your favorite stripper. The taste is barley, hops, honey which surprises you. Great taste, the sweetness really evens out the bitterness. Great double IPA.

Norovgath (35) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 1, 2016
Clear gold color with a large white head, nice lacing. Aroma is heavy hoppy citrus - orange, grapefruitm malty and some carmel, all is well balanced. Flavor is hoppy, malty and sweet, bitternes with a long duration - nice one. Aftertaste is just what I want in IIPA, perfect. It’s a combination of grapefruit’s bitterness and orange sweetnes. Medium body, texture is oily, soft carbonation. Really very drinkable. The whole creates a perfect combination. :D

BenL8 (150) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Hazy/opaque light copper colour, little head, some foam remains for a long time though. Aroma is spicy and malty, with only hints of fruitiness. Hops is prominent anyway, aroma is very earthy and herbal. Flavour: Citrus fruitiness is apparent at first. Very spicy and piney, earthiness/ herbal notes still very apparent. Bitter and tangy, especially in the finish. Very very nice double IPA.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2011
It’s hazy, warm golden with a creamy head, and a fruity and very delicious aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet and has a nice, dry bitterness and notes of caramel, loads of fruits like papaya, peach and pineapple, citrus and spruce. The finish is dry and bitter. It’s a very well-balanced and harmonic beer.

bmeup (669) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2011
Massive open white head over a amber body. Intense floral, fruity and citrus hops.Malty biscuit/bread base and great balance in taste for this style. Big resinous bitterness is lengthy. One of the finest IPA’s out there.

Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2012
500ml bottle @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Hazy deep orange color with a nice little head. Aromas of citrus and clean hops and some light fruits. Good dosage of bitterness to balance the heavy sweetness from the malts. Full body. A really great IPA.

thearmi (31) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 21, 2013
A rather mild double IPA with a smooth and mildly bitter taste and a nice, bitter finish. It has a full body as the finnish stays long in your mouth. A really enjoyable beer for a night.
