Bottle @ home, courtesy tossed via Flair. Slightly hazed orange pour with a soapy white head. Smells of green onion, juicy grapefruit and orange, and huge pine. Slight biscuit malt note. Fairly bitter on the tongue. Some bitter green onion and garlic. Lots of pine and orange rind. Slight marmalade note. Huge resin on the finish. Not bad.

Bottle [from trade with mista] @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Pretty hazy light orange color, full sized a bit rocky off-white head that lasts for quite some time. Aroma is malts, hops, citrus, some tropical fruits. Hops and fruitiness get more prominent after the beer warms up a bit. Taste malts, nicely hoppy and fruity. The fruit hops flow into in very nice suitable not over the top bitterness in the finish which makes the beer very enjoyable. Still I feel the beer should have a bit more alcohol, for instance 7%, to give it a bit more body. Aroma and flavorwise it’s certainly an IPA, but the body imo is just a little shy of what it should be. Nevertheless this is a very enjoyable beer!
