COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

Can at Olympen
Golden hazy, big tanned head. Takes ages to pour because of the carbonation. Smells of citrus, zests, some fruits and pine. Good sweetness and malty taste, turns to a nice hoppy finish, i find alot of resins and citrus here. Medium bodied. Totally this is more of a westcoast style ipa

Fules (914) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 1, 2016
Kicsi, de nagyon tartós hab, sápadt borostyán szín. Illata enyhe, citrusos, ananászos. Citrusos, ananászos ízvilág, markáns keserűvel és fenyőgyantával. Az ízek nagyon jól egymásba simulnak, jó az egyensúly. Közepes test, erős keserű, közepes karbonáció. Jól eltalált, kifinomult IPA.

suurjuust (3040) - ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
Can, 355ml. Hazy straw yellow beer, big white head. Nose is hoppy, lime and pineapple, grapefruit, some toasty malt. Flavor is citric, lime peel, grapefruit, pineapple and lychee. Finish is hoppy, bitter, not a lot of resin, but a lot of grapefruit and more lime. Pretty juicy, but leans towards lime peel, not heavy on the malt.

Kita (1949) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 16, 2016
Can, 0.355l. Pours hazy clay amber color with large soapy off-white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit, pineapple and pine. Taste starts with light sweet caramel and resinous, follows juicy fruity and herbal, mouthfeel is dry, astringent and mild spicy, while finish is heavy bitter. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Pungent IPA...

Kauge (1665) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2016
Can from Sip (€ 6ish). Canned (I think) in September, i.e. 2 months ago - date at the bottom says 09.06.2016. Pours pretty pale hazy yellow rather than amber, with moderate head formation. Head’s off-white, and somewhat sticking on the edge. The aroma is surprisingly crisp - as in refreshingly fruity, the fruits being tropical like pineapple, mango and grapefruit, melon and lime. But it’s also noticeably needley - reminding me of pine needles or some kind of cactus. Hint of cactus-flavoured long drink my friend always used to have. Tastes of the same notes, it’s tropical, but no stone fruits in the mix in my opinion, and again piney or cactusy. Mediumish body with fine near crisp carbonation, slightly oily on the palate and finishing cactusy-piney bitter. All in all an enjoyable, albeit a bit out of balance IPA - the hops become a bit too aggressive at times. I prefer my IPA-s with a stronger malt backbone. Anyway, hopheads will love this.

Fresh vibrant India pale ale. Nice hops but a little off balance. Lacks a little body/maltiness.

jflopsu (1343) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours a hazy bright yellow-gold with white head. A strong citrus hop, pine, and tropical fruit aroma. A nice balanced taste of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, hops, and light spices. A lingering sweet citrus and bitter hooe aftertaste.

sinfull (1490) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Amber color . Big , off-white head . Tropical fruits , pine and some weird notes , which I wasn't able to classify. Taste is all about hoppy bitterness with some malt on background. Didn't impress me at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

anstei (1369) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Liebefeld. Aroma of mango, tropical fruits. Medium body, soft but very stable foam and carbonation. Too flat, it didn’t want to leave the tap anyway. Medium and mostly malty palate. Nice.

Pours a hazy yellow. Soapy like white head. Light citrus and fresh hop aroma. Nothing but fresh hop flavor. Mild bitter finish.
