4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours with a generous off-white/ivory head over a light copper beer. Aroma is very enticingly fruity/hoppy (grapefruit, pine, mango) with a noticeable caramel malt aroma (probably adding to the fruitiness). Flavor smoothly transitions from fruity to sweet to toasty to bitter. Mouthfeel is rich and full for an IPA, but the hop bitterness cleans everything right up leaving you ready for your next 22 oz. whoops I mean glass. This beer is all about wet hops and perfect balance, and they’ve nailed it.
Shared at Jim's tasting. Clear golden pour with a white head. Notes of caramel, grapefruit, grassy hops, floral hops. Medium body and carbonation. zoucrew102 (2233) - - DEC 16, 2017
750ml bottle, 2017 edition. Herbal hop aroma with notes of toasted malt, floral, grapefruit and pine resiny hops. Pours clear amber colored with a huge off white head that has excellent retention and decent, soapy lacing. Starts with herbal and floral hops flavors with notes of toasted malt. Finishes dry and fairly smooth with grapefruit hop citrus and some bitter pine resiny hop flavors that linger on the palate. Pretty nice ipa. jmgreenuk (10322) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 16, 2017
Bottle at the JimGreen tasting, Den Haag, December 2017. Thanks Jeroen. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is fresh hop, malt, slightly herbal, woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a fresh crisp, dry light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. kermis (14955) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2017

Bottle at Jim’s back tasting! Waxed bottle even. Clear golden with off white head. Resin, fresh hops, sweet caramel malts, tea, green tea, bread, lots of herbs, sweat, earthy notes. Over medium sweet and bitter. Over medium bodied. Bit old school, it’s not bad but it’s really malty for the abv. sjogro (4998) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2017

Clean, clear copper color with a big soapy white head of foam. The aroma and taste are light in orange peel, barley, with herbaceous, earthy, and peppery hops. Leaves a lot to be desired from such a cool bottle and the marketing that goes with it. sonnycheeba (6539) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours amber. Aroma and flavor are caramel and biscuit malt, floral and great hops, clean with a touch of sweetness and dry, bitter finish. Medium body. crajun (1273) - , Texas, USA - APR 30, 2017
Not an ipa guy but this was very good. only had a couple of ounces. many many things going on - resin, light citrus, medicinal in flavor. hops are not bitter - balanced the many things happening here
