Bottle poured into a tulip. Amber color with medium white head that dissipates quickly. Has a sticky, sweet aroma mixed with citrus. Taste is pine and resin with melon and floral notes thrown in. Great balance as well. An excellent beer overall.

500ml can from Warsaw Beer Festival - Chmielarnia stand, thank you Mr Korcz!

I have to say that reading all the praises about this one I was hoping for way more fruity character from the hops. As it comes out a lot of caramel. I would love more fruitiness. Though its a very good beer.

ebone1988 (1484) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Aroma is floral, tropical fruit, citrus, a bit of malt stickiness. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, hazy. Taste is tropical fruit, lots of citrus, malt, pine, sweeter than it is bitter, good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, fruity pine aftertaste. Overall, good but not great.

Oly (64) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Poured from a can within 2 weeks of canning. Somewhat hazy orange with a minimal white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruit, which comes through in the taste. Mango, pineapple, and passionfruit, with just a little bit of bitterness that lingers. The palate is great; slick without being too syrupy. Great beer.

Johnstledger8 (915) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2016
Can. Loads of tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, citrus, grapefruit, hint of bubblegum. Juicy, oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Gription79 (2856) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Poured from a can, big thanks to my neighbor Taylor. Huge American hop nose, pine, mango, tropical fruits. Bitterness is high on the finish, dry finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the beer. Soft bready malts. One of the greats.

Faathoven (29) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - OCT 25, 2016
Appearance: Deep amber color, slightly hazy, nice head retention. Aroma: Hoppy with tropical fruits like mango and papaya, some peach as well. Taste: Follows the nose, very fruity and juicy, then the bitterness from the hops last for a long time. Palate: Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation. It doesnt live up to the hype imho (maybe I had a bad can) but a good one anyway.

Mesjasz (1154) - Lodz, POLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Can, unfortunately 3 months old. Aroma is mostly caramel and small notes of mango. Taste is bitter and dry, light sweet. Flavor of caramel and resin.

islay (2333) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2016
16 oz. can, consumed on 10-11-16. Pours a clear, dark bronze with a small to moderate amount of cream to beige-colored head. Mild to moderate effervescence. Good, long-lasting lacing. Im not a huge fan of the color, and its an ordinary appearance for the style aside from the above-average lacing. A bit of haze in the later pour and extra, creamier head elevates the appearance. Some cloudiness as well. Apricot, grapefruit, and dust scents. Some pine. Fresh smell. Grapefruit and pine flavors. Boozy in a bad way. Funky finish. Dry, lightly chemical aftertaste reminds me of grapefruit rind. Full body. Smooth in the palate. Good palate effects. Fruitier in aroma and flavor than I would prefer. Normally I consider 8% ABV the sweet spot for IPAs / double IPAs, but this one comes across as boozier and fuller than the ABV suggests, and the hops mix does little for me. Its far from a bad beer, but its also far from an outstanding one. I was expecting better given the hype on this one.

Tap @Himmeriget, Cph. Pours hazy yellow with a large, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, lots of fresh hops, citrus, resin, grapefruit. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, fat and creamy, hops are nice, citrus, pine, pineapple, wheat. Lingering bitterness.

Pilsnertest (143) - SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2016
Can @ home. 4 months old. Fruity aroma. Taste is juicy. Grapefruit, pineapple, iron, aragula and damp spruce. Not super balanced but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
