Hop_Hedonist (308) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
Beaut balanced IPA - and a bit different - piercing piney-ness - sweet crystal malt complements not distracts - easy to smash - quite a richly tongue-coating brew. Yep, love it.

visionthing (3402) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
35,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with notes of pine, citrus and herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with nice hoppy flavours and a balanced bitterness. Balanced and delicious. Not the freshest one but still excellent ale!

Dark gold with low head. Aroma is fairly faint with notes of caramel, pine and some citrus. Taste is bitter sweet with a medium body and a surprisingly short after taste. Not impressed.

eggraid101 (50) - Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. One brew that I marked others against. I remember the hop flavor being a little more citrus less pine in the past but I still like it. A nicely balanced beer that I can depend on to be delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gyllengul vätska med vitt skum. Doftar grape, tallbarr, kåda och en aning av anis. Bra balans mellan maltsötma och beska. Eftersmaken klingar av ganska snabbt. Helt ok.

Keg at Southern Soul BBQ, Georgia, 19/02/15. Had this one many a time just all in pre rating days! Golden orange with a big old off white head. Nose is pale malts, orange, grassy, light hop notes, tangerine. Taste comprises light grapefruit, orange pith, straw, lemon, light caramel malt notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the close. Drinking and rating this about 10 years on from the first time I had it, it just didn’t deliver the same hop hit and semi ’wow’ factor. I guess this one holds a high score on the site due to longevity, nothing wrong with this at all but IPA’s have moved on for me.

16oz pint. Pretty ordinary color wih a slightly dark copper hue, very thin white lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon, soft pine. Flavor, aromas, bitterness is all very light. Pretty good overall.
