Saeglopur (434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Golden to amber, hazy body, with a small, creamy, white head, that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, strawberry, flowers, pine, grass, honey. Taste with the same aromas, also some candy. Mouthfeel is medium to light, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter/sweet, slightly dry, with citrus, pine, candy and grass. Not bad, maybe too light in the taste. The aromas are interesting nonetheless and it is has a high drinkability.

Cuso (5040) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from McTapps, big thank you, sabine. Deep golden color wit medium white head. Aroma of aromatic, piney hops. Taste, very short malty start, followed with strong resiny hoppy kick with grapefruit, grapefruit zest, some spices. medium long bitter finish. Germans hops are not very intense, but beer itself is easy drinkable and good.

aleigator (278) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from P&m-Getränke. Epic big, foamy head, with cloudy, yellow color. Bursting with lovely aromas, of apricot, peach, kiwi, grapes and honey, which go along exeptional well - smells great. Unusual complexity coming from a noticable taste of berries, merging well with fruity, and hoppy impressions. Taste gets even better, when the malt body becomes recognizable, adding a decent body to the beer. The emerging taste stays long on the palate, without getting washed away by the usual IPA bitterness, with is hardly perceptible at all. In this particual case I do not really miss it, because the decent bitterness adds a refreshing note to the beer, just as the vell balances carbonation, which creates a enjoyable finish. It is easy to drink, because of the restrained bitterness and the well hidden alcohol, but never gets boring thanks to the inclusion of comet hops and an overall well balanced body.

Buongiorgio00 (892) - - JAN 22, 2014
Secondo me il comet non è così saporito e caratteristico da poter essere usato "in singolata", e la birra ne risente con una deriva del suo carattere in un grigio anonimato. Amara, fruttata, buona base maltata, ma da una ipa io mi aspetterei qualcosa di più intenso e intrigante. Per il resto, piacevole e beverina.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma with lots of overripe fruits. Flavor has some yeast, a bit of sweet malt, some fruitiness and a bitterish hops finish. Medium-bodied. Quite refreshing.
