Poured from twelve ounce can purchased at Growlers in Hilton Head Island SC and tasted on July 13, 2012. Cloudy gold hue, small white head, nice sweet hoppy aroma with definite grapefruit notes, delicious bittersweet flavor with grapefruit being present in the taste as well as the aroma. This beer has a bold presence without being overwhelming. This brew would be nearly perfect if the hops were just a tiny bit more assertive but that’s a very minor quibble. I would love to try this on draft. A world class IPA.
0.5 l can from Pivoteka, Zagreb, summer 2017. Hazy golden, medium off-white head. Moderately to heavily hoppy, resin, pine, some fruit. Intense. Very fresh and bitter. Light body, moderate carbonation. Drinkable. Nice finish. This is a true IPA! R4N5H (1352) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 12oz bottle at the rooftop bar at The Kickerbocker NYC on 28-Nov-2017, served in a shaker. Hazy amber pour with a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of malt, grain, grapefruit, melon and peach. Light to medium bitterness and decent floral hop profile. Pretty decent fruity IPA. kaserov (1026) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2017
Color dorado amarillento, muy turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. El primer golpe de mango en la nariz es brutal. Después se captan cítricos (pomelo y naranja, sobre todo), malta caramelizada, pino y resina. En boca destacan el pino y la malta caramelizada. Algo de cítricos y ligera fruta tropical. Bastante resina al final del trago, con amargor no muy elevado. Seca. Pino y resina en postgusto. MelvinKalksma (1767) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a medium white/off-white head. Medium aroma with a lot of orange, tropical fruit and citrus. Taste is the same, but stronger, with a beautiful hop finish. MKromhoutNC (26) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Nice full taste, good fruitiness
A little bit of aftertaste
Paler yellow in color, slightly hazy
Good, not great

Can. Pours hazy golden full white head. Pleasant aroma of citrus and pine. Medium sweet taste. Medium body , finishes with dry hop bitterness. Solid overall. Iznogud (4499) - CROATIA - SEP 19, 2017
Canned, 355 ml, courtesy of JFK10000. Hazy golden, medium white head. Vague hops, fruity, citrus, malty, caramel, bitterish finish. Medium bodied. Pretty much dead which is understandable considering the bb. Candidate for re-rate. kajser27 (2065) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2017
Unclear, yellow-golden colored, medium white frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma is of some malt, bit caramel, medium- pine, citrus and herbal aroma, but a bit stale. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, bit orange hard candy, floral, pine and citrus, medium aroma and bitterness, dry finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Seems to be harmed by the Atlantic crossing, another victim of transportation! Should rerate... MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2017

My Bottom Line: Alpha10 (839) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Three-dimensional malts ground this IPAs pine needles, ripe grapefruit and green peppercorns in a biscuity, bubbly feel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam settles atop the hazy golden.
-Malts are more prominent in the nose than many of today’s most popular IPAs.
-Hop resins are at the forefront, flavour-wise.
-All flavors are clearly organized and brightly showcased.
2017/07/02 - Pours a hazy orange gold colour with a thick, rocky, white head the slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is ripe tropical fruits, orange and cereal with floral and herbal notes. Smells like a flavoured herbal tea. Taste is cereal, light mango, pine, orange and hops that are herbal, floral and lightly spicy. Mouthfeel is medium with soft carbonation and a moderately bitter, drying finish that is long and lightly herbal. Overall, pretty good stuff.
