50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.04.2009
Aroma is rather hoppy with hay, some fruity and dfloral notes. Flavour has hops, grapefruit, hay, some biscuits, fruits and distant floral notes. The hops feel a bit stinging and palate is somewhat watery. Not much of an IPA, more like overhopped golden ale or pale ale.

Vili (107) - FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
50cl can. Golden pour with thin white head, little to no lacing. Thin aromas of citrus and exotic fruit. Taste is weak, but balanced. Somewhat bitter and sweet aftertaste with abrupt ending. Drinkable.

kustie (347) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Can. Golden color with white head. Little citrus and malt in aroma. Taste is malty and dry with somewhat long aftertaste. Flavors of citrus, malt and some hayish hops.

jpkeskinen (334) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Drank from a can. Quite a basic, well-hopped ale. The taste is a bit simple as there is not much in addition to the hops.

nihtila (1465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
8.11.2013. Tuoksussa humalaa, hiivaa, viljaa? Ei kovin raikas. Maussa humala on melko kuivaa. Viljainen, kukkainen. Ei hedelmäisyyttä, karamellisuutta eikä juuri greippiä. Ensin humala tuntui jotenkin päälle liimatulta, mutta alkoi maistua paremmalta.

Rune (9056) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2015
Thanks to djoeye for sharing a 500ml can. A stable pearl white head to a clear golden body. Mid-sweet aroma, pale malts and herbal hops. Taste of pale malts and leafy hops leading to a fair bittersweet ending, mid-dry. Pretty tasty stuff (Tromsø 16.03.2015).

djoeye (2220) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2015
Off white head, pale golden clear body. Aroma of fresh hops (though, they are dry according to description), grains, pine, forest, nice. Taste; hops, grains, fine pilsner malts of good quality, bread, tasty. Good body and feel. Continuing hops in finish. Overall a good one.

Can thanx by benzai. Golden color and clear. Smells and tastes malty, caramel and a bit hoppy. Not bad.

Benzai (9763) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
50cl can [thanks to Rosenbergh] shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah @ weekly tasting. Clear golden color, small white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts, lightly hops, but also a little bit herbal, or plant-like I’d say. Taste malts, hayish hops, lightly bitter, straw. Average body, soft carbonation. An English style IPA imo. Not bad at all.

DutchDrebus (4591) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Can @ benzai. Clear yellow colour with a medium sized white head. Smells slightly hoppy but not the fruity kind, grassy. Tastes hops, grassy, fresh, crisp, malts. Decent English style IPA. Thinnish body, nice crisp carbo.

yespr (34303) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
50 cl can. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty, cornish. Grassy, dry malty and vague hops fruity. Bitter, dry and toasted malt. Bitter and roasted finish.
