spartakbarnsley (55) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle from local supermarket, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Lovely pine aroma, nice level of carbonation and the hoppy kick at the end is pleasing yet not overpowering. Clean, crisp and refreshing.

njnut (289) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Poured from tap into shaker a gold color, bartender overfilled glass so I had no head or lace. Nice light hoppy citrus aroma much like Sunny-D. Taste was same with some carmel malt. Nice, not a hop slam, good balance.

Pours into a pint glass a copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is a little earthy hoppy. Fairly flat carbonation with a thin-ish mouth feel. Taste is a bitter hop flavor. Not citrusy but a little earthy. Taste is not sweet.

TET (1806) - FINLAND - DEC 29, 2014
A hazy, golden beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has lots of fructose and tropical fruits, peaches, pineapples and some grapefruits. Taste has tropical fruits, some peaches. After the fruity beginning the medium bitterness tastes and it’s slightly piney. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth enough. Good, easy to enjoy and tropical beer but as five months old the age has already done some damage.

Boomersmancave1 (74) - Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ Cutter's Way, Vincennes, IN. This is quite possibly one of the best IPA's i have drank. This one doesn't have a powerful aftertaste like most IPA's. Very good beer!

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere. Bottled 07/29/14.

Clear golden colour with a medium sized white head. Fruits, spruce, citrus. Bitterness has suffered but still refreshing for a 5 months old IPA. Would like to try fresh one.

Wonderful citrus and hop aroma. Definite pine smell. Cloudy and foamy appearance. Excellent ipa flavor.

dhatton (72) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Golden orange body with thin layer of foam. Aroma is of fresh florals and citrus. More citrus flavor; lemon and faint grapefruit notes. Subtle tastes of pine throughout. Touch of nutty maltiness. Relatively creamy finish, although, solid carbonation makes this very crisp. Drinkable IPA with good depth.
