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.

Blueshawk (406) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- trübe orangene Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Malz, Citrusfrüchten und etwas Honig - passende Carbonisierung - der erste Antrunk gestaltet sich für ein IPA sehr mild - im weiteren Verlauf vermisst man dann doch etwas die fruchtigen Noten - der recht hohe Malzanteil entschädigt leider nicht ganz - dieser Malzanteil gestaltet wiederum dann aber den Abgang nochmals mild und weich Fazit: Ein gutes IPA mit ungewohnt hohem Malzanteil

hvn (261) - Nuuk, GREENLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Barwa bursztynowa, całkowicie nieprzejrzysta. Piana gęsta ale błyskawicznie opada lecz w minimalnym stopniu utrzymuje się do końca. W aromacie cytrusowa świeżość, lekko winny, minimalne czerwone owoce. W smaku przyjemna nienachalna goryczka, do tego dochodzi w tle zielone jabłko, arbuz i trawa cytrynowa bądź cytrusy. Przyjemne i treściwe.

mjs (6534) - 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.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - 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.
