JoeZasada (300) - Beaumont, Alberta, - JUN 17, 2011
Bomber bottle. Pours a clear reddish pale amber, with a thin white head, slight breenish tinge. Mild aroma of spruce, but not much head to push it. Tastes is a heavy bitterness with some citrus tones, with a medium slightly sweet malt body underneath. Full body, creamy texture, would be helped with livelier carbonation. Finishes with a grassy bitterness. Pretty good...

Holmen1 (4123) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Fra fat på Bøker & børst (planke på krankupp med Ovesen 01.02.16): klar gylden med flott skum. Som i Velvet ESB synes jeg de har spart på aromahumlen, men jeg finner bitterappelsiner (og marmelade) sammen med litt gress og urter. Noe grapefrukt og furu blander seg inn i smaksbildet. Lang, bitter ettersmak, men den skjemmes desverre en ufrisk beskhet mot slutten.

ciocanelu (597) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 1, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with creamy, white head. Intense dank, vegetal hops on the aroma. Chives, dill but also some ripe tropical fruits. There is also a slight nail polish remover hint but it’s not really offensive. Taste starts also really hoppy, the same dank notes from the aroma. The bitterness makes its appearance only in the finish, not harsh, just right for a legit IPA. Body is really smooth, the carbonation just right. Really good IPA overall. Modern hops, smooth body and a good amount of bitterness.

From tap at Bøker & Børst with JMD 01.02.16. Slightly hazy golden. Off-white head and lacing. Aroma and taste of American hops, citrus and marmalade, balanced with pale malt. Medium high grapefruit bitterness lingering on, becoming astringent rather than refreshing.
