Unde (1080) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2016
Sadly the best before date was almost due with this one. Orange beer with small head on top. Aroma has caramel and cookie malts with some pines. Taste is malty, caramel sweetness and cookie malts with pines in the end. Medium body and medium carbonation. Definitely the best edge has been mellowed here. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 3, 2016
12oz bb06/2016 from Bierhandlung Freiburg. Light orange, mid-viscous pour. Sweet apricot marmelade, pine and cooked pineapple aroma. Satisfyingly rich, jammy mouthfeel - something not easily replicated by EU cover versions. Best of sweet, resinous C-hops in taste, quince and pineapple marmelade sealed with dewy resins and a kafir lime leaf floral finish. Satisfying classic. ThemDubs (3) - - MAR 28, 2016 does not count
Good aroma, very potent, could smell it out of the bottle. Floral, yeasty, with a bit of citrus.
Appearance was nicely amber with a small white head, slightly hazy
Taste was bitter with a bit of sweetness
Palate had medium body with slick texture average carbonation and clean short finish
Good for a cheap IPA I liked and would definitely try it again.

hawthorne00 (3952) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle. Pale amber, hazy. An inch of white head. Aroma is OK but not the boldest. Has mandarins, tropical bubblegum, some pine. Thin for 7% - thinnish for 5. More rambunctious on the palate, but not necessarily an improvement - it’s bold but a mite disjointed. Sweetish, weedy and fruity. Herbal and boiled orange notes with medium to high bitterness. Bracing. JaroMantic (50) - - MAR 11, 2016

Pours golden light hazy amber. Aroma of hops, tropical fruits and slight caramel. Taste brings in also some herbal notes and pine. Texture is surprisingly thick. Typical tasty IPA from the US.
