wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Hazy amber looks with a meek off-white head. Decent citrus and piney hop in the beak. Sweetish flavour with some very tidy fragrant hoppage. Approachable and accomplished. Better than a tap on the jaw for sure.

lusikka (5955) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber orange colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of juicy pineapple, lemon and some biscuit. Very juicy flavour with pineapple, floral bitterness, biscuit, some orange pith and herbal earthiness. Medium bodied and a rich, juicy, earthy finish. I think they’ve used quite a bit of Columbus hops here. Suits me well.

tiong (3615) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
330ml bottle from Saveur-biere.com

Bottled 16/01/14 - Pours clear golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of crisp caramely maltiness, sweet juicy hoppiness, some exotic fruitness and citrus. Taste is smooth, crisp malty and biscuity with some grassy bitterness and juicy fruity hoppiness. Finish is crisp, bitter and juicy with some citrusy hops, grass and fruits. Okay APA.

Everettm (80) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Hazey orange with finger of white head. mild to heavy aroma of mango, grass, tangerine, and a small amount of pineapple. Juicy tropical fruit flavours with moderate malt backbone and dry crisp bitterness. The flavours and body are a bit murky, could do with being a bit smoother.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Typical IPA appearance: cloudy orange body with a tall head. Fresh grassy American hops in the aroma. Thick oily mouthfeel with soft malt and fresh hops. Smooth grapefruity finish. This is clearly an IPA - why would the brewer and Ratebeer call this an APA?

FatPhil (9005) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 16, 2014
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Initially a lovely bright fruity hoppiness. Later, maltier, a little plasticky (I think some are calling this "clean", and I think it comes from the yeast). Caramelly and sweet. Taste very similar to the aroma, but without the lightness of the fruits. A little sticky palate, but OK carbonation. Sweet caramelly malts, and herbal bitterness dominate, aromatic hops ephemeral in comparison - there and gone. Dirty bitterness, leafy, hayey, finish. Almost a tanniny dryness. Fun IPA, easy quaffer, not exciting or challenging, but fine for a time you just want a pleasant hoppy bitter with that modern feel.

Botella de 33 cl en Cimmeria. Mayo de 2013. Sabores y aromas bastante intensos y amargos finales secos y notables. Cuerpo ligero con 5.6 vol. Buena en general. No esta mal.

gegwilson (921) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Suddaby’s, Malton. Pours a murky amber with a white head. Some good tropical fruit hop flavour. Some caramel in there too. Nice bitter finish. Just a touch lightweight.

Marduk (2526) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 6, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy brown color. Tiny size, off-white head, disappears. Hops, bit of dirty cloth, sweet, grainy aroma. Fresh grassy hops, citrus, sugar in taste. Refreshing grassy bitterness in aftertaste. Nice one.
