MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, golden in color and a dense, white head leaving some lacings. Citrusy and grassy on the nose, some maltyness. Quite nice. It’s rather bitter, with grapefruit peel and a nice malty backdrop. Dry and medium to full bodied. Bitter finish. A quite nice one, pleasantly bitter, and sort of quenching. 110820

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight off-white head. Soft grapefruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit and floral. Some malt background. It’s definitely on the bitter side. Just a lot different from US ales. Which in this case seems to be a good thing.
