3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Citrus, pine and some fruity sweetness. Full body. Light bitterness throughout. A touch of spice. Finish is a bit soapy with more lingering bitterness.
Bottle. 5 days after expiry date - to be perfectly honest. Golden body, thick white head, relatively lasting, relatively big. Aroma... definitely citrus peel of sorts, sharp, on top of a full maltyness, but shows its age, keeping the score slightly higher than it should be from this to offset the age. The taste... wow. This actually tastes more hoppy than most IPAs are after what, nice citric, lemongrass and herbal notes on a clean, soft malty body, slightly lacking in carbonation but damn smooth. Realistically, this is a 3.5 right now, but I can see this easily being 3.7-3.8 when fresh, so props to Sierra Nevada. drjoeng (1481) - SINGAPORE - FEB 17, 2018
Poured out gold. 7ºSRM.
Nose had aromas of citrus peel suggesting grapefruit and tangerines. Pine and pine sap aroma well-represented.
Mouthfeel is light and soapy. Palate has flavors of white toast, crackers and saltines or soda biscuits, matso. Hop flavors are pine needles, pine and plant sap, with fresh herb flavors of scallion, cilantro leaf, and citrus flavors of lemon zest and grapefruit peel.
Lingering aftertaste of citrus peel with a slightly tingly sensation that you get from chawing on raw citrus peel.
Overall, highlights American hop flavors with a very light malt palate. BBHansen (1125) - Køge, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2018

0,33 l bottle. Pours almost clear golden with a finger of lasting frothy white head. Aroma is full of citrus fruit, oranges, lemon and tangerine, malt is in the background, there's also flower honey. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, texture slick and carbonation average. Finish is quite long, citrus and sweetness of body slowly fades away and mellow bitterness lingers. Bottle was rather old, expiry date is 16. 2. 2018. I reckon there was more hop aroma when beer was younger. But it has a great body base and it's still a treat.

Taste - bitter,dry. Bitter aftertaste. malibrat (207) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 20, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Voćno citrusna aroma. Ukus je lijepo ugođen. Malko gorkast u početku ali se brzo izgubi i prelazi u voćno citrusne i malko slatkaste. Fina IPA! bilcho1 (233) - Ruse, BULGARIA - JAN 19, 2018
330 ml bottle at the craft beer shop, shared with friends. Pours crystal clear with a brief frothy white head, heavy lacing but no bead. Intense golden colour. On the nose, multiple citrus flavours, including tangerine, cumquat, lime, lemon, and grapefruit. In the mouth, fizzy at first with higher than average carbonation, dry and bitter from the first sip, inhibiting both mouth feel and the release of the hoppy citrus and apple flavours. A lingering aftertaste that included herbs and chamomile. Overall, unique and complex, but not quite right in the mouth. Graniteguy (1) - - JAN 14, 2018 does not count
An exceptional IPA that drinks like a double IPA. One of my favorites now when I can find it. ResinousRespek6 (4) - - JAN 14, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Goldene Farbe, feiner Schaum. Hält nicht lange, IPA halt. Nase und Geschmack passen perfekt zusammen. Hopfen, bitter. Intensiver Geschmack, nich blumig, eher wild. Wohl das Hopfenöl. Im Abgang zuerst süß, dann bitter. Ich mag‘s echt
