Bottle. Thanks to whoever brought it! Golden body, off white head. Onion notes and fruity touches in the otherwise heavily malty, if a bit dry aroma. Smoooooth taste, clean maltiness and orangey hoppiness, orange juice almost, very light bitterness. A nice enough beer. GoddamnNoise (210) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 11, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ Home,
Aroma: not very intense but very pleasant aromas of grapefruit, mango, passion fruit, tropical fruits, citrus, pine, resin. Some malt aroma and some sulfur when warmed and swirled.
Appearance: golden to light golden color with slightly off-white head. Very high head thickness. Very high retention. Creamy head. Low Brussels' lacing. Low to medium hazyness.
Taste: low sweetness, medium to high bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of grapefruit, tropical fruits, resin, pine, citrus. Balance is on the bitter side. If there is some sweetness, i couldn't notice it because of the huge hop load. No astringency despite of the high bitterness. Very subtle hints of alcohol sweetness when the beer warmed up.
Palate: low to medium body, oily and a little bit creamy texture, low to medium carbonation, very long dry finish with medium to high bitterness and similar flavors of grapefruit, resin, pine, citrus, passion fruit, tropical fruit. Alcohol is quite high, but noticeable only as a low sweetness in the background.
Overall: very good appearance. Not very intense aromas but very pleasant (except when the beer warmed up). Very good hop flavors. Quite drinkable despite of the high bitterness. Very good IIPA. klukas (368) - Rijeka, CROATIA - DEC 3, 2017
