YigSvartka (276) - Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
Translucent golden orange hue with a mid sized white head that rather quickly dissipates. Pungent aroma featuring notes of citrus, pineapple, mango, caramel, grass and potent hops. Mid bodied with a silky tactility. Extremely crisp, refreshing ipa. Citrus and hops reign supreme with various flavours of tropical fruits present as well. Intense fruity citrus is apparent immediately upon consumption, then a lingering hop sensation gradually fades. Not necessarily temporally complex, but the instant flavour is varied and robust. Quite nice.

malvrich (237) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Can dated best by 9/23 into an IPA. A: Pale orange tinted gold with a 1/2" head. Head fell fast to a ring but left lots of lace. Busy carbonation visible. S: Dry and sweet citrus aromas with light caramel and light toast. T: Bitter pine, citrus pith and zest. Sweet fruit and caramel joins next, with some alcohol. M: Medium body with stiff carbonation and a fairly clean and dry finish. O: Very nice overall though does not quite live up to all the hype imo. In all fairness, this is 5 months old and probably much better reasonably fresh. An easily recommendable IPA nevertheless.

Strong hop aroma towards the piny citrus end. Not too fruity. Clear golden body and white thick cap of head. Hop bitter sits on the tongue. A little sweetness. Good thick body on the tongue.

teddybeer (3330) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 11, 2016
Light orange color with a white head, good retention with nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, notes of resins, grapefruit and orange. Flavor has a decent bitterness, very fruity dominated by citrus and orange. Good maltiness in the final with some dry and bittery mouthfeel.

koleminer20 (2413) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2016
12 oz can. The pour is a darker golden yellow color with a thicker white head that falls pretty quickly leaving some good lace. The aroma is a little more malty than would like with a decent pine on the finish. There is a good dose of tropical fruit and s light resin that carries it out. The sweetness is definitely something that I’m not feeling. The flavor is bitter and lightly fruity. The flavor is actually quite good. There is a nice tropical fruit and a big bitterness to it. The hops are nice and the malt is really subdued. It’s basic, but well done. The mouth feel is light and a little syrupy. There is a softer carbonation and a lingeringly bitter fruitiness on the back end. The sweetness of the malt just likes in a little at the finish, but for the most part it’s a pretty good IPA.

lello4ever (630) - ITALY - AUG 9, 2016
Dorato intenso, limpida. Schiuma frizzantina bianca. Bello l’aroma, molto profumata con sentori floreali ed erbacei e una nota di frutta. Pompelmo ed agrumi, che si notano anche durante la bevuta, con un corpo pieno e deciso. Luppolo mai in eccesso, accompagna sorso dopo sorso con la carbonazione media. Buonissima, una grande Ipa.
