Bottle. Yellow color with a white head. A soapy floral and pine aroma and does not carry any better into the finish and palate. It seems somewhat astringent and lacks some sweetness or citrus balance. The malts are a little harsh. Erzengel (8938) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2013
Dark chestnut brown in the glass, The beer starts slightly malty and very nice hopped. The mainpart is smooth, highly drinkable, nice malt basis and very nice floral hoppy, the bitterness is also very nice and round. The aftertaste is long, slightly sweet, malty-dry and nicely floral hoppy bitter.

--> very nice maltier IPA. Not too sweet, but I think the malt-basis tends to put the floral hops a bit into the background.
Amber with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel, woodsy and floral hops and some bready malt. Taste is balanced with bready malt, caramel and floral hops and a mild bitter finish. Borup (14730) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013

Hazy amber color with small head. The aroma is caramel-forward, apparently sweet, with a fruity touch. Strong caramel flavor, with moderate residual sweetness; strong bitterness (although well blended in), with medium-strong resins, and bitter orange fruitiness.
Too caramelly for me, for an IPA, but a good beer overall, although it doesn’t seem very fresh.
Bottle: Amber, hazy, small but lacy off-white head, distinctive spicy piney-hoppy nose, maybe some more exotic fruits underneath, caramel detectable; quite dry moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 7.0%; dry and lingering piney-hoppy finish with traces of dark malt and the good old cough syrup, all in all a bit harsh. Not a world-class brew, but still a chunky IPA… after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2013
