Armadill0 (284) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Big white head, vaporates rather quickly. Yellow-brown, foggy and yammy. Aroma has pine, soap, citrus and fruit. Taste has fruit, some pine and fruit. Lacks the bitter IPA punch, more like a pale ale. Ok at that though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A dense, finger-thick off-white to light beige head forms over a lightly hazy golden body. The aroma reminds me of blackcurrant bushes, with grass, citrus peel, lemon and some resin notes. Not much maltyness, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor. Balancing bitterness, grass, citrus and lemon in the flavor, with the malts in the far back. A quite straightforward one, but a tad too boring. 140418

McWorta (649) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 5, 2014
Deep golden light opalescent colour with a large fading white head. Noses of citrus, maracuja, gooseberry, lemon and hints of grapefruit and exotic fruit salad. A soft carbonation with a medium-full body and a harmonic slick texture. Tastes sweet with a faint sour note. Well balanced offering a fruity fading into light dry soft finish. Harmonic beer!

Beersiveknown (3230) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle at home from mctapps, cheers Sabine!
fresh gooseberry like nz hop aromas...but theyre German! US like resin, a herbal nettley noble hop note. Juicy hops, well balanced by light malt with gentle bitterness. Excellent stuff.

BenH (2493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle thanks to McTapps. Golden with white head. Delicious hop aroma, citrusy with grapefruit and orange. Similar flavour, some mango in there. Quite bitter, very nice. Wouldn’t have guessed it used German hops

Bottle at home, 20th March 14. Good clean IPA, fairly citrus, well rounded, not quite as tasty as the other I have had from this brewery
