Shared bottle at Arne and Ulrike’s. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine needles, caramel, mandarins, flowers. Tastes sweet with balancing bitterness. Medium bodied, dry mouth feel, bitter finish. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a fairly tight near white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up bitter lime and lemon citrus notes as well some floral hops around the edges. It seems to be brimming with a bitter hoppy aroma with some faint cracked dry malt maltiness in the background. The taste is pleasingly bitter with hops where a mild degree of sweet malts binds this together. Like the nose I’m getting lemon to lime to grapefruit citrus hop bitterness sweetened a bit by malts and then rolling into some bitter hop floral notes. All these flavors come to together nicely for this IPA. Good stuff. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012

Amber color, clean and filtered; medium sized creamy head. Strange aroma, soapy, then some Parmesan. Smooth mouthfeel, some caramel flavor, harmonious, but with a cheesy touch more present than the hop; correct bitterness. Not exciting.

Hazy golden color. Very nice aroma, harmonious, with fruity hops, mango, tropical fruits, light apricot, light sweat, some biscuity cereals. Medium body, with lean mouthfeel; it has a good toffee flavor with light biscuity traces, a good bitterness level, and some hop oils, moderate fruitiness from the hop too.
Very good (it could be spectacular if it was showing more freshness).

Nicht zu kalt trinken. Sehr kräftig süßlich. Schöne Farbe. Kann man nicht so viel von trinken. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2013
Im Geruch angenehm bedeckz zitronig, floral (erinnert an den Blütenduft von Philadelphus lemoinei). Antrunk süßlich-zitronig. Mitte melonig, blumig. Abgang sanft, Geranienblüten, angenehm bitter ausklingend.
