Poured from the bottle(room temp) with a nice head that dissipated fairly slowly into a fine broken layer in the center and a fine lacing around the edge of glass. The colour is a very attractive and clear reddish gold.
The smell is a strong hoppy-fruity aroma that is very inviting, so compelling.
The taste is very strong hops with grapefruit notes that jumps at you early then settles down a bit in the middle with some malt tones and returns with a very nice bitterness in the aftertaste.
Wow! This is one of my favourite brews of *any* style! Fisler (659) - Bamberg, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2017
Optisch schonmal super, Schaum perlt noch derb hoch nach dem Einschenken. In der Nase malzig, fruchtig, grasig, grünhopfig eben. Im Trunk komplex, süffig, Keks, Malz, Frucht, dann bitter, ein bisschen Spekulatius, wie ein leichter Barleywine. Sehr lecker! Bacchus66 (905) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2017
12oz bottle at home. Pours slightly hazed reddish amber with a sticky off-white head and good lacing. Great IPA character with grapefruit, orange, pine resin, caramel malts, lots of hops bitterness offset with semi-sweet caramel malt. Lively spicy hops finish. Delicious.

Forgot to rate this one, been a while back. Just remembered it being very full body and strong. too strong for my meal really. Maybe by itself it would have been better.
