500ml bottle.

Pours into a tulip glass a nice light orange color with about 2 fingers of thick, foamy head. Great retention and picture perfect lacing throughout the glass.

Classic IPA flavor with strong citrusy hop balanced beautiful with subtle fruity notes (So many IPA's these days just pile in the Cascade and Centennial hops for an overwhelming grapefruit flavor with no balance at all). Grapefruit on the nose followed by a sweet pineapple and a dash of pine.

Sweetness fades into a perfect hop bitterness; not overwhelming, perfectly balanced, and lingers just long enough into the citrusy and piney aftertaste.

Medium bodied. Great mouthfeel. Very hearty, flavorful, perfectly-balanced beer. Highly drinkable (though you will want to savor every single sip)

This is easily one of the top IPA's on the market today. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find in the U.S., so stock up anytime you find it on the shelf.

L: Pours hazy amber under a 2” clingy white rocky foam collar.
S: Traces of Brett aromas with caramel and fruit.
T: Big malt and yeast flavors balance the rich hops. There are more hops in the foam than in the fluid producing a layered effect.
F: Very creamy smooth, medium full body, medium soft carbonation.
O: Well composed and balanced with interesting layers of flavor.

I'm not one for dissection, leave that to others - this is a great IIPA! Bitterness, smoothness, great mouthfeel - a good beer to sup on in the European tradition. Others will say it has piney overtones, etc, - yep - it does. Goes with the style and the hops used. Big ups to the b
rewer - you did well!

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an orange color and a thick, cloudy texture. Some floaties. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Pretty good, though not great, lacing.

S: A big aroma of citrus, hops, and some malt.

T: Tasted of hops (lots of them), citrus (grapefruit, possibly a bit of orange), malt, and a touch of caramel. A very focused, sharp, and well made flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

D: This has to be first DIPA from a European brewery that's actually gotten the style completely right. Eminently drinkable.
