Really nice. I like the hop bill, takes over the malt I appreciate that. The head and legs this beer is awesome. Color is red/amber. Malt is slightly heady and mouthfeel is good. Overall good, I like more hops but its really well balanced. Love the whole package.

Citrus aroma and initial citrus taste washed away with a leafy after taste.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
A somewhat light shade of amber with an off-white head. Floral and grassy hops dominate. There is a decent maltiness to the nose, mostly bready. Just a hint of fruit (citrus) in there, maybe some herbal and pine aromas. The flavor is fairly bready, but a decent enough hop flavor. Lots of floral notes with some pine and grass. A strange white grape flavor is also present. Decent, but not great.

TET (1693) - FINLAND - FEB 17, 2012
A slightly cloudy, copperbrown beer with a almost medium and blond head. Ou, ou, great aroma, that is full of fresh fruitsallad, tropical fruits, papaias and some sweetness and pine forest. Taste is also fruitfull, papaias, quite lot of piney and slightly grassy bitterness. Medium- bodied, quite lot of carbonation, nice to drink, but overally body is still too light, that reduce enjoyability. Great tropical fruitsallad, that charms, fruitfreaks, great beer!

Aroma of tropical fruit, lots of mango and pineapple, quite sharp. Taste has bags of tropical fruit, bubblegum note in there. Some earthiness, hint of pepper. Awesome. Really enjoyed this.

DanielBrown (3855) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle at Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Smells awesome - so fresh, clean and thinly sweet. Taste is irresistibly hoppy, especially on the sweet, juicy finish. Very fizzy, which adds dryness. In fact, by the bottom of the glass (into which the bottle was poured*) Iím convinced that the fizziness is taking away from the hop taste slightly. But still, itís really good. (*unnecessary elucidation.)

AshtonMcCobb (2697) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours golden with a lazy bubble or two and a nice generous head. The nose has pine and grapefruit pith. The taste has lemon and grapefruit sorbet. The palate has a medium body, a thick, creamy texture and a nice zingy finish. Overall, itís like a Belgian (or Dutch) influenced IPA. Nice beer.

Taste: fruity start, citrus, grapefruit, melon, honey. Aftertaste: still fruity, bitter, bit peppery, dry finish with bitter ending.

"Cooked vegetables and burnt toast" was the description my wife gave of the aroma. I just think itís a tasty beverage! A nicely (relatively) mellow ipa. More like smoldering embers than fire and flame, but in a very comforting way.

lord_totenkopf (310) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 7, 2012
Dark yellowish colour, hazy liquid with off-white head. Pours with lots of crust, intersting looks. Aroma is very complex with some hays, herbs, grass, citruses, fruits (like apple), hops. Very intensive and satisfying fragrances. Taste is bitter, real IPA. Very, very good beer.
