UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 Bottle at home. Aroma is fruity hops, pine resin, juicy citrus, grapefruit, tropical, light biscuit malty. Flavour is light sweet with a robust bitterness. Body is medium. Very smooth and juicy, big hops, exemplary IPA, could not stop taking sips.

NordicV (1821) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doft och smak är maltig med tallbarr, kåda och lättare inslag av grapefrukt. Grapefrukten mer framträdande i eftersmaken. Bra balans mellan sötma och beska.

Maakun (3089) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Almost clear golden with fluffy off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Grapefruit, mango, orange, dank hops with soft silver hazy marijuana, dried flowers, fresh cut grass. Some biscuits, caramel and cookies. Medium sweet going into a long lasting bitter finish that matches the sweetness perfectly. Medium bodied with slightly oily feel. Very nice IPA.

desurfer (1276) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Draft @ the Mews Tavern in Wakefield, RI. Solid hops, loaded with citrus tart and not the usual syrupy sweetness that comes with hoppy, high ABV brews. Very good.

N3lson1 (903) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Drank from 500ml pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn! A bit copper on this golden brew. A bit hot.

Fullpintofbeer (112) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Can from Brew Bristol. Medium head, gold colour, lightly hazy. Aroma of yeast and bit of hops. Lightly sweet taste with bitter aftertaste, medium to full body, average carbonation. No excitement here, could have been more hoppy, poor aroma.

PabloZab (1036) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Butelka 355ml (13.02.2017). Piwo niemal klarowne o złotej barwie. Piana biała, obfita, drobna i zbita, dość trwała, bardzo wyraźnie odkłada się na szkle. Aromat intensywny w pierwszym momencie bardzo żywiczny ale po chwili do głosu dochodzą słodkie nuty owoców tropikalnych, chyba jeszcze przyjemniejsze, spychając las na dalszy plan a w miare ogrzewania się piwa żywica znowu zaczyna dominować. Goryczka żywiczna albo nawet mega żywiczna na średnim do wysokiego poziomie, krótka, niezalegająca, no może troszeczkę, lekko ściągająca ale ogólnie bardzo zwiewna w odczuciu mimo sporej mocy. W odbiorze piwo jest bardzo pijalne mimo sporego, wyczuwalnego ciała, nisko wysycone, nawet wnosi nieco rześkości choć ma 7.5% alkoholu, który nomen omen jest totalnie niewyczuwalny, bez afektu drapania w gardle i rozgrzewania. Jednym słowem jest świetnie.

mrjez (379) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 3, 2016
Can. Pours a nice darkish gold, foamy finger of head. Grapefruit, citrus and pine aroma, taste is well balanced with pine hop dominating, but well balanced with fruit. It’s quite assertive in bitterness yet very drinkable and with clean malt flavour. A nicely done big-bodied IPA.

Pours dark golden color, clear, with two fingers foamy white head. Visually slow up rising bubbles. Aroma: prevails hop aroma, which takes on pine, grapefruit, some other citruses and spices. Malt flavor is in background, it takes on some biscuit, but still supports hop aroma. Flavor is very simular: very well balanced high hop bitterness and moderate medium malt sweetness, which takes on ingrediends mentioned above. Finish is dry bitter and lingers in aftertaste. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, texture soft.
