Vells (696) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 20, 2014
Quite a standard IPA with extra grapefruit kick. Moderate hoppy with light malt background, caramel, bit fruity, mostly grapefruit, bit tropical, mango, herbal, light pine. Moderate bitterness all the way. Works for me.

kappldav123 (5018) - GERMANY - SEP 18, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass golden-yellow, nice head. Fine malty-hoppy aroma. Starts fine fruity-hoppy, notes of lemon, more and more dry, a bit moldy, less fruity. Dry-bitter finish. Okay.

Cool_Bond (1445) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2014
Gorgeous floral and fruity scent. A just right taste of grapefruit and moderately hopped makes me melt. Taste-wise, I think this is one of the best IPA I drank. Light bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Why are not like this beer in larger bottles. I just want more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
