This is NOT an IPA, however it is a very pleasant easy drinking beer.Overwhelming head, light malt nose and profile,medium hop finish I quite lie this, and it could score much higher if it was more akin to an actual IPA

Hop taste prevails of course but the selected hops blend together perfectly. Hop selection is more vegetal than citrusy. Carbonation is absolutely perfect after about 2 minutes in the glass. Extremely enjoyable and particularly easy going for an IPA.

wlajwl (3771) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Aroma is citrus, earthy malts and a hint of sugar/fruit. The flavor is caramel malts, citrus, tropical fruit, earthy notes and a bitter hop resin finish.

Heerlijk zacht bier. Kan er eigenlijk niet iets uithalen buiten hop om waar het naar smaakt maar dat hij lekker is is een feit.

Me sorprende que se la defina como una IPA cuando es una cerveza de baja fermentación. Dicho esto, se trata de una cerveza de color anarajado y sin filtrar con una buena formación de espuma. En primer plano aparece la malta suavemente acaramelada pero no dura mucho ya que empieza a cobrar protagonismo los lúpulos cítricos y afrutados. Muy refrescante pero se empieza a echar de menos cervezas donde los lúpulos cítricos no lo invadan todo. Una lager diferente.

S_Side_Smitty (436) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours copper-brown and murky with a large off white head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine, malts and syrup. Taste is just like the aroma with piney hops and rich carob-like malts dominating. The medium sweetness leads to an easy bitter finish. Great full bodied IPA.

GSAP (475) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Alles in balans, aroma is fris pittig fruit van sinaasappelschil en rode grapefruit, verse kruid en bloemen. Smaak bestaat uit zachte bittere tonen met een suiker rand, niet geheel te definiëren, complex genoeg om lang van blijven te genieten. Mooie dikke kraag die langzaam inzakt.

vanelst (118) - AUSTRIA - JUN 3, 2014
Nice and refreshing Ipa. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops, orangepeel ,exotic fruits and flowers. Taste is moderate bitter, soft sweetness and long dry aftertaste. Extremely drinkable, not only in spring, but also in summer.

Colour: Pale gold with hints of amber. Faint white head. Nose: fresh, grass, floral hop notes, hay, lemon, even mango. Almost IPA fruitiness prevails. Hints of herbs and alcohol. Flavours: more fruits, but more bitterness than the aroma lets off. Still easily drinkable. Finish: medium, refreshing, bitter. Verdict: different from the ’regular’ spring beers (lentebock), but on the other hand, it’s more layered and complex.
