Apariencia: De un tono dorado y translúcido con una capa de espuma fina pero duradera. Aroma: Principalmente va de lo cítrico a lo floral, con ligeras notas a malta. Sabor: En boca es frutal, principalmente cítrica pero bien acompañada de un agradable amargor.

Godfather50 (155) - SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Pours nicely, perhaps slightly over carbonated. Head looks good but relaxes into nothing quickly. The taste is good, malt with Apple and pair fruit. Mouthfeel dominated by fiz from the gas. A clean taste which.begs a second bottle. Bother it was a single left at Fiona’s 50th.

Desverger (5724) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle@The Mitre Hotel, Hampton - golden amber pour with a small white head. Very subdued hoppy aroma and taste, light citrus lemony nuances, faint herbal and floral, pretty watery, pretty basic stuff.

uckelman (504) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Pours clear and golden, small dappled white head. Aroma is herby and sweet, maybe a bit honey-like. Flavor is bittersweet. Medium body, bit of astringency on the finish from the carbonation. Aftertaste is not sweet, which I like---that would kill this beer for me.

sarauckelman (327) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Clear golden-orange color, with moderate head. Strong aroma, slightly hoppy with strong hints of sweet flowers. Taste is strongly floral from the hops on the front, tapering to slight bitter on the back. Not too astringent. Nice mouthfeel.

Splitenz (338) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
This was my "gateway" IPA. Had loads of these in Edinburgh and a couple in Aalborg as well. Mild, but yet with enough sting to make it worth while. This is the kind of IPA I wish I could get in the shops here in Norway, for a price similar to your regular lager or there about. I would then drink that when watching movies or sports. But, alas, no one in Norway has this beer (regularly)

Aroma of honey and caramel malt. Light amber with white head. Small head lasting. Taste is hoppy, light bitter. Honey sweetness. Finish is light bitter. Soapy texture. Average texture.

MrJamesMcEwan (200) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Pours slightly cloudy, amber colour, with a thick head that settles into a steady thin head. Aroma of orange, honey and bread. Taste is malty, honey, citrus/orange, bitter and slightly bitter at the end. Palate has medium carbonation. A refreshing beer, relatively easy to drink.
