Had it as draft at the Mikkeller Bar Seoul.

A: Offish orangy color for the body with a big head of about two fingers with a careful pour. The head is fairly yellowish. Good head retention with lacing

Ar: Fresh aroma. Piney, fruity, & floral. Hint of maltiness

T: Follows the aroma. A bit malty with bready caramel and noticeble yeastienss on the tongue. Still very hoppy and piney.

M: Smooth on the mouth. Creamy and I should say easy-drinking.

Aftertaste: Bitter but predominatly sweet.

It was drunk 2 month after BB date. Appearance is deep-orange color, weak white head. Very dark for a classic IPA. Smells like an American-style barleywine ale. Caramel malt, honey, brown sugar, toffee. Then follows hop bunch in the background. Almost a sweet caramel malt profile going in the taste. Grapefruit, pine, herbal notes supplement a picture. Lots of hop bitterness going on the finish. Good bitterness level in the aftertaste. Big body with a medium carbonation. Balance is such good, that is really enjoyable.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 500 ml can on November 25, 2015. Can stamped B.B.D. 20/05/17. Look is a nice bright amber with a thick creamy light tan head and lingering lacing. Smell is citrus, pine and biscuit malt. Taste is grapefruit, orange, pine and biscuit. Feel is medium in body yet smooth in finish.

Very interesting beer taste. Long aftertaste with a pleasant bitterness. The color and odor as a good standard! Such thirsty beer every day and not one bottle!

Murky amber appeareance. Good head.

Smell is floral, citrus, herbal hops. Piney as well. Good strong aroma.

The taste is very "green". Fresh hoppiness as if it was made yesterday. Don't know when this was canned (500ml can). Very nice hoppy but somewhat balanced beer similar to Sierra Nevada Torpedo but rather more aromatic and fresh smelling and tasting.

Overall this beer delivers as a hop bomb with complexity and deliciousness in abundance. Love the 500ml can. A decent serving size!!!

91/100

A big thanks to the commander of canned beers, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of hops, minty, some pine. Taste is lots of hops, pine, bitter, minty at the finish. Feels medium/full in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.
