Just about perfect - the only complaints I have are that I prefer a richer, more enduring head, and a slightly less sticky sensation from the beer. Great from a bottle - insane from a tap... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (2615) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle, bottled 12.11.2015 (from beergium). Pours amber. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, greasy, malty. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, some hops. Finish is mild grassy bitterness. Overall: good, but would like to try fresher sample.

suurjuust (2659) - ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart. Not a very fresh sample. Citric, sweet and peachy nose, pine and caramel. Flavor is caramel, toasty malt, herbal notes, pine. Citric and piney finish, some caramel. Lingering pine nd resin. Oily mouthfeel.

fuzzcro (179) - Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2016
I good brew. Crisp, clear amber. Short head dissipates quickly but still some lacing. The citrus/hop flavor is a bit too obvious and up front for me. I wouldn’t turn one down if offered though.

ffbot (278) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Pour is a still deep yellow with no bubbles or head. Aroma is citrus, pine, hops, floral, nice sweet balanced scent. Pleasant mellow mouth feel. Taste is nice bitter hops balanced against sweetness, some pine and citrus in the background. The taste dies to a nice leveled out palate of abstract bitterness

kerenmk (3814) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2016
Draught at Le Cheile, nyc. Can’t believe I haven’t drank it yet! Clear amber with a white head. Fresh and crispy hoppiness with crackers undertones. Fresh and lightly bitter, faint tropical fruit. Medium body, light bitter finish. Good and solid.

Golden orange appearance. Crisp flavor profile. Citrus hoppy character. It has a hint of orange.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

nazzty (1212) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Expected more from this brew. A pretty average modern IPA with all the expected citrusy flavors and strong bitterness. Good but not creating the angels choir sing.

humanekt (6) - - APR 25, 2016 does not count
I find this tasty IPA to be rather "bready," in a good way. To my palate, it has a heavier mouth feel than I’ve seen others describe it. Lots of citrus and piney highlights, and the finish is dry and pleasantly bitter.

R4N5H (639) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Draught point at Ted’s Montana Grill in NYC. Clear golden amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, hops and sweet malt. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Lovely fruity taste with a bitter finish. Heavily hopped, lots of tropical fruits - pineapple, passionfruit, with citrus (grapefruit). I love the grapefruit zest - really refreshing. Great with meat.
