Pours a hazy dark yellow with fine, soapy head.

Smell is crisp and citrusy with notes of pineapple, grass, peach juice and a hint of honey.

Taste is fresh and grassy, with notes of citrus, pineapple and peaches. Moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Very well balanced and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a refreshing and sessionable IPA.

Got this one from doopie for my birthday. Cheers!

From a 440ml can into a pint glass
Best before 14 July

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, looser, foamier looking white head with decent retention. Noisy, foamy cap. Hazy amber or jonquil yellow body with no carbonation evident. Head slowly recedes to a full, foamy cap and clings to the glass. Splotchy wisp remains until the end leaving some traces of lacing on the glass as it empties.

SMELL: Mango, passion fruit, peaches and some pineapple on the nose. Medium strength and very tropical fruity.

TASTE: Mango, pineapple, melon and caramel up front. Flavorful. Some more tropical flavors at the swallow, moving into a bold finish of passion fruit, mango, pineapple, peaches and light notes of caramel lingering on the palate. Good.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down fine and finishes a bit dry. No real bitterness lingers.

OVERALL: This is a solid New England style IPA from Germany. The look fits the bill and the flavor and aroma profile follow suit as well. This is an enjoyable brew for sure and one that I would gladly re-visit if given the opportunity. Thanks again, doopie!

Straight from can. Aroma is herbal and grassy with a bit of ripe pineapple. Taste follows with herbal and grassy hops, quite bitter and astringent on the finish. Medium body with medium plus carbonation. Quite crisp mouthfeel.

This is not their best attempt at the style.
It seems quite muted with notes of tropical fruits.
The mouthfeel is muddy but not really smooth.
Okay but not great

De Tercertiempocervezas. En copa Teku. Jugando a Avernum 6. Muy rico, aromatico y equilibrado zumo de frutas con algunas notas lacticas. Sorprendentemente buena para tan bajo abv

Pours a pale golden amber coloration with a medium, frothy head. Smell is a little subdued, with some faint citrus and tropical fruit coming through: grapefruit, tangerine, mango. Taste is similarily underwhelming, with some not very distinct notes of citrus and tropical fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, mango, as well as a little pine and a light chalkiness. Finishes with a medium bitterness, light hop burn and some zesty citrus notes and chalk lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation.

This is perfectly enjoyable IPA, but a little disappointing to me, coming from Frau Gruber. The flavor profile just seems a little muddled and not all that interesting, especially at first, even though it does develop a bit more of a piney, bitter bite in the aftertaste, which is slightly marred by a light chalkiness though.
