Beautiful bright hazy amber color, with creamy head. Light caramel aroma, with a light earthy and dusty impression, later some fruits (sweet oranges). It has a good body strength, with lean mouthfeel, dodging the risk, at this gravity, to be too sweet; quite good malt flavor, with correct (strong) bitterness; there are some hop resins, but the rest of the hop qualities seems to have faded.
A beer that was brewed well, but too old.

Big and fluffy beige head that lasts. Clear amber color. Citrus/grape hop aroma. Malty and hoppy taste. A bit sweet for a IPA. Not a clean hop and malt taste and medium bitterness.
Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy amber, small head. Aroma of pink grapefruit. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Some caramel and syrup undeneath the grapefruit. Mid bitter finish. Bov (13330) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2012
