A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Orange juice, honey, pine and caramel with hints of grapefruit.

Taste: Bittersweet orange juice, grapefruit, pine and caramel while at the same time, quite boozy.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: This was one was not really for me. My least favourite of the four single hop IIPA’s that I tried. It was the clear booziness that took away from my fully appreciating this.

Poured this from a 330 ml can with the same design as the bottle, into a tulip glass. Could not pour out the whole can because of the massive head of white froth which develops straight out of the an over the hazy golden orange tone of the brew. THe aromas are a mix of fruit, citrus, pine and florals, although a bit more muted and mixed than some of their other single hop IIPAs. Taste-wise, there is a light sweetness, mixed with a somewhat heavier bitterness, plenty of fruitiness and pine bitter, making it quite mellow and balanced. This brew is medium bodied, enhanced by the soft to medium carbonation. Nice!

Almost clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy, also a bit dank. Taste is slightly sweet and malty at first, continues with fruity hop flavors, finishes with medium bitterness and yellow grapefruit flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Overall it's another good beer from the IIPA single hop series.
