neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a small whitish head of fine bubbles, spotty lace. Aroma dark caramel, mandarin peel, orange juice, light grapefruit, sweet and not too hoppy. Palate is pretty plain, pale malts with touch of caramel, some mixed citrus peel and flesh, orange mostly with grapefruit, maybe a bit of meyer lemon. Sort of very lightly acidic, mineral feel to it. Not overbearingly sweet. Mild bitterness on the finish. Light body, average carb. Nothing wrong at all here but it’s not very exciting either, lacking any sort of big flavour or feel in the mouth. Probably not very fresh either. Could drink a lot easily, but would rather drink something else.

Hazy amber. Huge, rocky, white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. light caramely notes. Clean, hoppy flavour, fruity with light citrus notes. Nice and clean, well balanced. Rather light finish.

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, 4.8%. Mild citrus, orange aroma. Clear copper colour, sparkling. Very big stable rocky white head. The flavour is milldy citric, has some orange and lemon notes. Other than that quite mild, some minerals, it seems. Medium bitterness. Refreshing and good.

Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours nearly clear amber with profuse airybut very durable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with notes of citrus and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour with fruity and malty notes and touches of yeast. Thin to medium body. Lively carbonation. Mild, bitter aftertaste. Nice.

marcogrind (81) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
An okay pale ale but it needs more character in the flavour, of course balanced with the typical notes from the citra, maybe some softness would help. Clean aftertaste.

Une très bonne single hop, qui ne manque pas de complexité.Nez et bouche d’agrumes, citrons vert, ananas et fruit de la passion.Petite acidité.Belle amertume maîtrisée, sans sécheresse.Corps fluide et aqueux, rafraîchissant.Bière parfaite pour boire tout l’été.

ElManana (835) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours very dark for a pale ale, nice lasting head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus hops & candy. Taste is perfectly drinkable PA, not too bitter. Very balanced, great stuff to session.

MonsterMagnet (446) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle, pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma: a bit muted, caramel, citrus, pine. Taste follows, bit is more pronounced, more citrus, feels a bit watery though. Ok beer, but not special
