Teku glass. Bottle. Burnt orange, cloudy, minimal head, nice lacing. Quite intense malty (caramel) aroma, alos some citrus (mandarin) aroma. Medium sweet, medium hop bitterness. More malty than hoppy. Full bodied, sticky texture, medium carbonation. Finish is light bitter. No alcohol warming.

Golden, amber-yellow, with a decent, small head.

My whole room smells like mango, peach and grapefruit, creating summer feelings, fantastic and intense aroma of fruity hops, spiced up with hints of honey.

Fruity hoppiness onwards from the beginning, defined by orange, papaya and kiwi, then fruits turn more sour, to a lime impression, as dry hop bitterness hits the palate. Malt plays a minor role in this, adding a gentle sweet note, with hints of grass and oak to the dominating zestful fruit impression, which soon disappears, as the hops turn bitter. As lovely and calm as this beer starts, it soon turns bitter, in an exciting, crisp, refreshing way, without loosing its enjoyable balance. Throughout, it remains very smooth, especially during the finish, in which bready malts shine through. Fantastic variety of tastes, every one of them very convincing. This certainly got a fuller body than their usual IPA, without turning too heavy and sweet. Very sour, slightly metallic aftertaste, due to lively carbonartion, which stays long on the palate.

Hazy brownish copper. Some citrus and hop notes in the nose. Flavor profile is malty with a touch of sweetness from the malt accompanied by a decent (but not over-impressive) array of hop flavors on the finish. The finish is also a touch warming as this offering does not hide the alcohol as well as many other top-shelf DIPAs.
