Wonderful smell of pineapple and citrus. Heavy foam,white. Cloudy light colour. Golden. Very fresh flavour,but slightly too hard on the carbonation and a bit too astringent. Very good,though.

Bygers (779) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Pours a hazy pale golden colour, thick white head. Nice aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, floral hops and malty notes. The flavour is largely grapefruit and lemon, with some biscuit-malty notes, and a lingering dryish hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (2230) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2014
Pale golden color with a high and easy formation of a white head, with very nice lacework and good lasting. Aroma has notes of citrus, some hay and cereal notes with light maltiness. Flavor has a moderate bitterness with good duration, citrusy and grassy notes. Slightly watery in the final with a moderate bitterness.

Maris (990) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2014
From a 500ml bottle on 10/8/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a cloudy light golden with a medium head. Has a very nice passionfruit aroma. The flavour features more passionfruit and citrus fruit, and grassy malt, followed by a medium hop bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. An enjoyable ale, but not sure I’d classify it as an IPA.

dnicolaescu (801) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 6, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Thanks, Henrik! Look: hazy golden with white frothy head. Aroma: intense juicy fruity hops - peach and apricot, pine-apple, sweet citrus with just a tad of resin. Taste: sweet-and-tart fruit, dry moderate to strong bitterness, thin to moderate body. Very good. Perhaps, as a session beer, could be a bit more gentle on bittering hops.
