Clear golden-amber color, steady off-white head. Flowery-piney aroma. Light bodied. Resiny bitter flavour much more aggressive than Fullers casks usually. Good.

Light golden almost watery looking beer. Nice strong aroma which carries through to a strong bitter citrus taste.

I_LUV_BEER (117) - - MAY 14, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus hops, lemon grass, biscuit and caramel malts. Taste is bitter-sweet, caramel malts, lemon zest, biscuit and some grassy notes, with moderate bitter lingering aftertaste and dry finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp, refreshing and zesty, nicely balanced. Nice one!

visionthing (4576) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
50cl bottle from Prisma, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a white head. Fairly malty aroma, but with noticeable hoppy notes too, mild citrus and pine, hints of tropical fruits and grass. Medium to moderate sweet with fairly mild flavours and a balanced, but also fairly light bitterness. Not APA as I like it, but decent and quite drinkable.

Idiosynkrasie (6057) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 11, 2016
500ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy, piney and grassy, hoppy aroma, some lemon, biscuity malty background. Taste is mildly bitter hoppy, slightly citrusy, grassy and piney, some diluted lemon, biscuity malty background with remnant sweetness, a minimally doughy, yeasty touch. A bit unbalanced, unintegrated, minimally watery passages.

BeerNinjaUK (196) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Bottle from Sainsburyís. Pours bright amber with frothy white head. Aroma of vanilla, orange, mango and pine. Pleasantly resiny hops with good bitterness. Not a bad attempt at a hoppy American-style IPA but doesnít have the true depth that comes with some other beers.

Pyobon (1265) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2016
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with good head. Nice aroma; mainly citrus with hints of pine, biscuit. Light bodied with full carbonation. Nice rush full foretaste with citrus and mango fruitiness and biscuity malt quickly falls away to a fairly intense hoppy bitterness. Very good well-hopped beer, although perhaps a bit disjointed.

Gurthnar (4691) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2016
Bottle from Damian. Clear golden colour, quickly disappearing head. Aroma oxidized, hoppy, floral and grassy. Taste is somewhat bland, neutral, slightly oxidized, but otherwise enjoyable, mostly hoppy, floral and grassy. Moderate bitterness and light balancing sweetness with almost no hops flavour. Easy drinking. Good.
