bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog, retrieved from lost notes 2013) Tap at source, MI 09/2013. Poured an expectedly thin bright gold with quickly vanishing head. Floral nose, with inviting lemongrass and light pineapple notes. Taste is thinner than expected, reiterating some of the pine and lemon notes, gone in a very quick finish. Not sure whether it was the keg that night, but given high expectations, ratings and a dire need for more flavoursome light IPAs, this failed to impress and did not invite our group to much sessioning. To be revisit from bottle... (note: very reminiscent of a few Störtebeker Atlantik Ale, entry level sessioner).

Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin soapy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, resinous floral hops. Very aromatic. Grassy, floral flavor with a nice mild hop bitterness and lighter body. The grassy freshness of this make for a refreshing crisp drinker. Great session IPA that packs a lot of flavor in to those 4.7%. I"ll be buying this regularly.

zgaier (1181) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and unique, great aroma of grapefruit, peach, and malt. Taste is sweet and light, of grapefruit, peaches, citrus, and hops with a smooth finish. Light, drinkable, great tasting brew.

tectactoe (1169) - Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Tap: Hazy, amber-copper color... I find that the clarity is better from the bottle than the tap, in many cases. Minimal off-white head that leaves a few patches of lacing behind. Aroma has lots of earthy hops with lots of pine, hop oils, & mild resin. Tons of citrus as well; grapefruit & orange peel with a timid tropical pineapple lingering in the background. Taste follows through with bigger heaps of pine needles, wet hops, dank resins, grapefruit rind, & mushy pineapple. Sticky coating, wet all around with a nice bitter bite in the finish, leaving you with a slight earthy & woodsy hop aftertaste. The body has a slight watery aspect to it, but I can’t complain much at 4.7% ABV. Lots of flavor per weight, here. A very nice sessionable "IPA".

Osprey87 (1161) - London via, WALES - AUG 11, 2013
Cold bottle. Not sure how old it is but the importer put a BB of Jan 2014, which suggests that this is about 6 months old. Carbonation looks low and there’s not much head, but it’s spritzy in the mouth. Not much going on in the smell. Slight grapefruit, citrus and lager flavours. It tastes like fruit flavoured water. I would say that this IPA is dead. Drink it very fresh or don’t bother!

kwik-lime (1159) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Keg at Trembling Madness, York. Grassy hop with hints of herbs, some grain, pine, malt to balance. Good hop character at a sessionable strength, which is obviously the point. Good beer.

dyetube (1157) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle from Market Street in McKinney. Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, resin. The mouthfeel is slightly watery with a bitterness and light body. The was definitely a tasty session IPA which is hard to find. Well done. Cheers!

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2013
I really digged this IPA. Drank from the bottle. Aroma is all grapefruit, pummelo, pine trees, and wet dirt. Flavors match up pretty similarly. Well balanced. A touch of sweetness but on the drier side. I love the low ABV. My only complaint is that it gives me an insta-headache every time I had one.

Psytron (1154) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Smell of hops. Hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of hops, base. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. Floral. Nicely balanced. lively carbon.
