3.75/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a coppery deep amber coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of citrus and tropical fruits, sweet malts and pine. Taste is nicely balanced between a zesty hoppiness and a slightly sweet maltiness with aromas of citrus (grapefruit, orange) and tropical (mango, passion fruit) fruits and some light resinous pine notes. Bitterness is medium, but quite lingering. Lacks a bit more of a punch to be truly great, but still an enjoyable IPA.

I would drink this beer over and over. There is a dearth of craft beer in Berlin. It took a week to find this beer at Tiergartenquelle but it was worth it. The IPA is solid, not too dry. Pleasantly balanced and not over the top like so many US beers, which I love. Think a mild version of Victory's HopDevil.

2.77/5  rDev -23.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Pours a coppery orange color with a one finger sized, froth head.

Smells of flowery citrus, orange and a hint of passion fruit, entangled into grass.

Has a very soft mouthfeel with a lighter body, while its upcoming dryness during the finish gets overpowered by toffee malts and a overly lively carbonation.

Tastes of cakey malts, a hint of leaves together with a lemon peak, followed up by toffee. Has a rock sugar peak to it, with no hops to speak of at all, only during the finish a most faint dryness becomes recognizable, adding a little depth to the malts.

Boring, overly malty and sweet, uneventfull with the hops just being a gimmick.

I found this fairly dull.Sort of a West coast IPA aimed at non craft beer drinkers, but priced at craft beer prices.
Reminded me of the Köstritzer Pale Ale, but that is much cheaper at 1,50EUR/500ml as opposed to 2,99EUR/355ml
