Slightly hazy yellow, small white head leaving little lacing.

Grapefruit pith, orange rind, lemon and biscuit malt.

Very citrus forward palate. Unrippened orange, lemon zest, grapefruit pith and childrens chewable aspirin. Tangy, lingering finish.

Efervesant carbonation. Light, medium mouthfeel.

Good but not great. The lingering aspirin finish is a bit distracting and the malt creeps into the mix a bit too much. Nice start to this beer but the finish dissapoints. Glad I tried it but won't seek it out in the future. $13.99 for the 4 pack.

Pours a clear orange that develops a finger of white foam after a modest pour straight into the glass. Head retention is good. Aroma is orange peel, tangerine and papaya with biscuit malts evident behind. It's a display of tropical fruits, and although they work together well, still allow the malts to shine through. Flavor profile is orange peel, lemon zest, and tangerine with biscuit and toast malts behind. Good balance between the hops and malts, developing a balanced beer. Mouth feel is crisp, and with a slight effervescent at the end. It's refreshing, with a medium thickness. Overall, a good quality IPA that balances hops and malts well.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Cloudy light yellow- golden color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Very juicy ( orange juice) and fragrant aroma.

Light body.

Excellent full citrus and juicy taste followed by a very hoppy finish.

I really enjoyed this beer- good balance between aroma, taste and finish.

Hazy golden blonde. 1 finger lose white head. Light carbonation.

Peach, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, mango, papaya, and candy sugar.

Taste
Tangy guava, pineapple, mango, and peach. Grapefruit zest and pine resin. Candy sugar maltiness with a light aspirin flavored bitterness.

I'm not really feeling the tanginess of this beer...

Milky yellow-orange colour, nice foamy head and a lot of sediment laying on the bottle bottom.
Fruity (exotic fruits, peaches) smell, combine with grassy and hoppy aromas.
The taste is initially fruity and dry. I could feel peaches, apricots, melon, balanced by a strong and bitter hoppy feeling . Then come some citrus (grapefruit, pomelo) and a bitter-dry aftertaste. The fruits are lingering still longtime after the tasting.
A really really good double IPA coming from an European brewery!
