look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bitburgers attempt at faking being a part of the craft scene

Very cloudy bright orange with huge chunks of floating sediment. Not much visible rising carbonation but a healthy 2 finger head.

S: It does smell like an IPA, but with a funny, maybe metallic sourness. scent is fairly faint.

T: good, light IPA, but still has this weird, semi artificial citrus flavor. like minty orange.

M: Very smooth and light. slight sour zing

O: better than many german IPAs

Pours a very nice light orange colour, but the little head that was there disappeared very quickly. Carbonation is lacking. The smell really reminds me of Schneider Weisse Tap 5, which is interesting for a beer that's supposed to be an IPA. Citrus, peach, and what seems like a Belgian style yeast are the strongest odours. The taste, again, is very similar to Tap 5. The hop profile is incredibly complex, obviously attributable to the 7 types of hops in this brew. Pine, citrus, very slight floral - it's all there. The carbonation is very creamy and this beer goes down like water (except for the incredible acidity, which burns my weak stomach). This beer is very good for a German American IPA. They're getting better at it!
