Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Hazy yellow-amber pour with a two finger foamy white head with good retention and lacing. Nice citrusy nose up front with a solid sweet malt backbone. Hints of caramel, orange peel, butterscotch, and herbal hops as well. The taste follows suit with lots of caramel and citrus along with tangerines, orange zest, butterscotch, pine, subtle grapefruit, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy with medium carbonation and great balance. Overall, a solid German IPA from an up and coming brewery.

Aroma: citrus, mandarin oranges.
Taste: a little better than Laguna.
Front: orange, citrus, not much bitterness (55 IBUs);
mid: rounder, less bitter more orange and citrus, grapefruit;
back: bitterness in back, and not much malt flavors.

It was better than the Laguna IPA, and I really enjoyed the mandarin orange aspect of the flavor, but again, it was for American IPA middling, but for Germany not bad. It's not a beer I want to grab and drink with uninhibited joy, like Pax Bräu's Cissy IPA.
