Bottle from secret Santa. Poured light Amber with decent sized white head and some lacing. Nose of citrus and floral hops. Taste is very hoppy with little malt. Hops are very bitter citrus, maybe a little metallic. Finish is very bitter. Mouth is heavily carbonated. Overall, a nice IPA that could use a bit more malt balance. ljthiessen (1507) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
On tap at Republic in Minneapolis. This was a pleasant surprise - really nice bright hoppy aroma, juicy citrus, tropical fruits, a little grassy. Taste is well balanced and medium-bodied. Really solid IPA. rosskyle (797) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Served on tap at Ward 6. Light Amber color with an off white head. Citrus and hops aroma. Medium body. Hoppy flavor throughout with a bitter finish. Little bit of pine and grass flavor. Easy drinking but could use some more citrus.

Bottle: pours golden amber with a froamy white head, aroma is hoppy, taste is the same, fairly bitter finish. MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
Klassisches ipa, wie ich es mag. Frisch und vollmundig, dabei angenehm hopfig und mit ein paar zitrusfrüchten gesegnet. Top.

Many thanks to Erzengel for this sample! The beer has got a clear deep golden-light amber colour with a small head and mild carbonation. Medium body. Aroma of hops, flowers and pine. Taste of hops, pine, herbs, flowers, orange zest, citrus and needles. Hoppy finish. Beerhunter111 (23265) - Beerland, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2015
Vielen Dank an Erzengel! Klare dunkel goldgelbe Farbe, fingerbreite weiße Schaumkrone. Der Geruch ist angenehm hopfig, grasig, frisch, Citrusfrüchte. Der Geschmack ist sehr malzig, kräftig hopfig, sehr bitter, Citrusfrüchte. Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2015
Many thanks to Jeremy for bringing it over! Nice floral nose, smooth and mild beginning. Nice intense pine, round and smooth-sweetish body. Very smooth. The bitterness appears only in the far end with a rough but still fitting aroma. Fruits, oranges, pine. Nice summer-flavours in the fruits. Long and intense fruity-piney aftertaste with not too much sweetness, but highly drinkable. Round and great intense brew! For 7% this beer is great - not too sweet, easy to drink and full of aroma!

Poured a honey, orange, hazy color with three fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Just a few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good circular, layered, spiderweb lacing on the sides. Average-to-above average retention on the top. (Sight - 4.13)
Great first whiff of orange blossom, followed by peach, apricot, nectarine, Citra, floral, tangerine, orange zest, Cascade, Mosaic and caramel. (Smell - 4.25)
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but very solid and reminding me almost more of a pale ale initially. Then got some heavy bitterness, going back to an IPA. Got bitter orange blossom, pine, Citra, red grapefruit rind and floral.
(Taste - 3.75)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.00)
Overall this was a really good IPA. I feel like I could have changed a few ratings here and there, but I’d love to have it again. (Overall - 3.88)

On tap at The Happy Gnome. Good complex bitterness. Good drinkability. Let it room warm. Fuller mouthfeel.
