SinH4 (3410) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Tap. Surprisingly dark brownish color with big head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits, resinous, . Taste is bread, nice mango & grapefruit hop punch, honey and caramel as well. Bitter finish. Quite full-bodied as well (not surprising at this ABV). A very good APA, but it doesnt hold up well.

copestx (115) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
Bottles at home. Super refreshing, mountains of citrus hops but nicely balanced. Good body/palate but not overwhelming, exactly what a pale should be. One of the best pales Ive ever had, and IMO better than Zombie Dust.

Cette bire me surprend. Cest amer et sucr, cest malt et caramelis en mme temps, et a me surprend. Jai limpression que le liquide se perd dans toute ses subtilits. On a galement un gout savonneux du houblon qui me dstabilise. Bref, tout a me surprend et laisse en incomprhension face au hype de cette bire recherche.

Stoned99 (1364) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
341ml bottle from trade with Hop Citizen. Aroma: caramel, earthy, grapefruits, shy citrus. Malt really up front. App: cloudy copper, medium off white frothy head, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, velvety and soft for the palate, light to medium sweetness, light moderate dry bitter finish. Overall: hmm. The aroma and the taste definitely disappointed me. Im so more of a fruity hop forward fan than a malt forward or even balanced. Mouthfeel is pretty good though and drinkability is high. Just wish it was more fruity. Date was scratched out so no idea how fresh it really is. Disappointed again by FFF. On the bright side, the look and mouthfeel are really good. Just ok.

davidezdonz (356) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 8, 2016
A 12 fl oz. bottle bottled on March 31st 2016 and poured into a mini Mikkeller long stemmed tulip glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a one finger off white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing. Aromas a bit light but grapefruit and pine come through along with some caramel malt. Tastes of bitter citrus grapefruit, lemon and orange peel, sweet lemon tea, lightly sweetened tea, pine and caramel malt in the background. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice and well balanced. Good mix of bitter and sweet.
