This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, - MAY 25, 2012
not bad, nice mixture of earthy and fruity hops, plenty of biscuitty malt and english yeast esters. loose irregular and organic looking head over a murky copper beer. a bit homebrewy - nice components but a bit muddy and unclear in the palate.

mjs (6293) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2016
(Keg at Pudel, 20160710) The beer poured deep amber and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tea and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, tea, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter with tea notes. A weird brew. Drinking a full pint would be a challenge.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

visionthing (4670) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2016
33cl bottle from Sip, Tallinn. Pours slightly hazy deep amber with a fairly small off-white head. Rather malty aroma with more subtle fruity and hoppy notes, hints of pine, caramel and citrus. Medium to moderate sweet with mild flavours, but a fairly decent bitterness. A bit to much towards the English IPA for my taste, but certainly decent brew.

colui72 (615) - HONG KONG - APR 13, 2016
It pours murky amber, with a large creamy head. Aroma is floral, fruity, herbal somehow. Thin in the palate, but quite tasty (grapefruit, peach, pine), little hops, no booze. Not bad, not the best IPA, but certainly a decent drink.

KoNrRiI (1154) - rhus, DENMARK - APR 8, 2016
0.1 draft. A hazy brown color with virtually no head. Sweet aroma of pale malts, unusual mixture of hops; grassy, fruity, and floral scents. Taste is kind of watered down, hoppy, some tea is there too - meeh. A medium body, a slick and smooth texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, smacks of tea - not bitter at all. Overall not a bad beer, certainly different from the mainstream.

adasko (1774) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Tap na BGM. Piwo średnie jak na IPA. Zduszone nuty chmielowe w aromacie i w smaku, dość mocno przebija sięsłodowść. Brakuje goryczki. Nie do końca moja bajka jeżeli chodzi o ten styl.

DylansDad (581) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2016
Aroma of fresh grass, and lots of it, some hay and cereal. I found the aroma very reminicent of old skool classic Steinlager, but way better. Thin body, drinks like a lager. Taste is grass malt, light grapefruit and a touch of not-quite-ripe berries at the edges. Slightest hint of stainless steel at the back. I enjoyed this a lot; its very easy drinking and simple but not overly so. Its very lager-ish and If this were a lager, and if most lagers were this good, Id be a lager-boy.

Blade86 (1231) - Wrocaw, POLAND - APR 2, 2016
Amber, hazy, small long lasting white foam, some citrus, caramel, little bit yeasty? Medium bitterness, medium- sweetness, medium body, little oily feel, average carbonation, quite long bitter astringent finish
