Frisk humle. Oklart vad det är för datum på den men den måste vara pigg. Lättdrucken ale. Riktigt bra. Där slutar anteckningarna...SBWF 2013

Many thanks to ThirstyBird for bringing this beer from the US! Orange in the glass with a white head. Great fruity smell like peaches, apricots, white grapes. The beer starts nicely bitter with lots of fruity aromas, coming to a peak between the main part and the aftertaste. Like a blast. Bitterness is overwhelmed by the fruity hop flavours, but they are not as intense as in their smell. The aftertaste is long, intense (peaches, nice bitterness) and quite dry for an IPA (what I appreciate). No malty aroma interfering and disturbing the nice hop aroma.

It is nice having an IPA that’s also a session - this could be nice on a hot day. But I found the hops a tad soapy and overall not super impressed - but then, I’m not too big a fan of IPAs, and the person I offered a sip to enjoyed it more. Not bad, but not one I need to have again.

A very clean and fruity nose. Some citrusy bitterness initiallywhich then gives way to soft malts. There is a lingering, hollow bitterness, which I frequently find in session ales, and is really my least favorite aspect of them. Good flavours but the mouthfeel is lacking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Kensington, London. An orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, pine, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, pine, slightly malty and slightly bitter. This was almost in the Kernel mould, very much an all day IPA. Enjoyable.

Drinkability is through the roof on this one with only 4.7% abv. So much hop and citrus flavor crammed into this lighter brew. An all day drink favorite.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Strong hoppy aroma. The flavor is piney and hoppy. Pleasant sting and aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At home, can from a 12 pack. Pours a medium gold with a very thin head. Nose is grapefruit and pine, some nice lighter caramel notes, a little dank. Flavor is pine and light caramel up front, grapefruit and dankness come out fit a sec before a piney finish. Nice, perhaps a touch sweet but it would probably feel hollow without that sweetness.
