TorbenJensen (1280) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2015
Mouthfeeling is soft and slightly spicy. Carbonation is moderate. It is a somewhat peculiar ale, its aroma is almost nil and the flavor is also very limited. Slightly malty body with a very anonymous hoppy bitterness. Towards the end it has a little sharp spicy tang (black pepper?) Actually dress it quite fine.

trilobata (17) - prescott, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Hazy unfiltered American style pale with a great fruity hop aroma. Well balanced fruitiness and bitterness from the hops with a nice subtle bready malt backbone.

Awesome unfiltered pale ale. Rich dark golden pour with a nice white head. I really like the fruity aroma blending with the hops. Cloudy but declared unfiltered which creates a Bitchin flavor!

Leighton (14703) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear gold, effervescent, with a big, frothy white head. The nose holds lightly floral hops, some pithy citrus, grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with pronounced grassy bitterness, some grain, hay, grapefruit, lemon rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with nice rindy citrus bitterness, dry pale malts, strong grassy and lightly earthy bitterness. Pretty nice overall, perhaps just a touch too bitter, though.

Ambro206 (278) - ITALY - MAR 26, 2015
Ottima IPA. Si presenta nel suo colore ambrato con schiuma bianca onesta. Aromi abbondanti di frutta tropicale e d estiva (ango uva, pesca). Sapore sorprendente. Il luppolo manitene il suo aroma e si amgama al caramello, allo stesso tempo dona un forte sapore rendendo la birra quasi sapida, minerale. Corpo pieno, carbonazione precisa. Una birra veramente ben riuscita.
