ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Nose of orange and paper, pungent, a little catty, clearly Simcoe, Cascade with only medium grapefruit. Gradient orange-golden with a rocky, dense beige head. Taste is bone dry and smashing with (lightly rubbery) strong bitterness. Not aggressive, keeps the astringency to a minimum and the carbonation manageable in the middle latitudes. Lightish/watery body, calls back fruit juice, lightly tropical but without leaving the claustrophobia behind. I like it. glennmastrange (2940) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate roasted grain for the malt, herbs and pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast with paper and sour milk in the background. head is small, frothy, white with a spot or two of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy medium amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A little off in aroma, a little flat in flavor, but it’s drinkable and fairly enjoyable. _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013

Taste is bitter, herbal and tiny fruity with bread, crackers, pine needles, resinous wood, lemon balm, sage, dried apricots, gooseberries, passionfruit, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, orange zest, grass and black tea.

No "last chance" for this brew. Lackluster in taste & an extremely bitter palate. Not my cup of tea. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity and floral hops, a bit tropical, some biscuity malt, promising. Flavour is quite strong and dry bitterness, the hops are a bit musky/earthy, almost no more fruit, which is a shame imho. Still nice though. stevedefusco (2) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2013 does not count
Really has a bad finish on the palate. Almost a metallic taste to it. Not my favorite IPA, a bit disappointed. Wouldn't purchase again.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy golden amber pour with thin white head, pine & citrus hop aroma, citrus hop taste grapefruit bitter, not a classic but very good. Joakgust (1502) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2013
Bottle, 355ml - Semi hazy orange golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of pine, citrus, pineapple, peaches and with hints of garlic. Flavor is spicy with notes of cooked corn, grapefruit, citrus and pine needles. A tadd bit unbalanced but the long aftertaste makes up for it.
