Beer5000 (5204) - Kristiansand, - JAN 31, 2013
500 ml bottle. A cloudy dark orange body with a thin off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is quite light and refreshing with caramel malt, moderate bitterness for an IPA and some fruit. Medium body and some bitterness in aftertaste. Nothing special, but no faults and otherwise rather pleasant thirst quencher.

Hazy orange amber beer, frothy white head. Nose is peaches and pineapple notes, hops, sweet malt, citric notes. Flavor is citric, hoppy, grapefruit, sweet malt. Finishes with mild malt and grapefruity bitterness. Lingering alcohol warmth and pine. Pretty subdued for the ABV, but pretty drinkable.

mjs (5471) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE Aug 2015, at Viking XPRS, 20150926) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had herbalness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were herbalness, fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A too herbal brew for my taste. Not bad.

TorbenJensen (1334) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Very nice creamy foam rises by pouring of the IPA. Faint aroma notes of grass and mint rises in the air, and the expectation of a delicate experience increases proportionally. The taste is slightly sweet in the beginning but taken over quickly by a great hoppy bitterness. Palate constitutes tasting notes of freshly grass, mint and fruity bittersweet taste that might be immature peach. Citrus blends lively in the taste and before the long, slightly bitter finale comes the sweetness a little back in the mouth as a light water and sweet melon. The finish is dry.

Marstonlad (610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a big frothy head. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, grass, floral notes and some sweetish maltiness. Taste is light sweet initially, later medium bitter; hoppy yet fairly balanced. Citrusy notes are strongest but also bready, hayish malty notes appear. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, average in carbonation. Drinkable, balanced British IPA.

Rather malt heavy ipa, more a Hop influenced esb, the sweet malt influence it finally cleared by a hop tang, but then a rather metallic note appears .

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival, 25 February 2010. Ginger colour. Not too much aroma other than a modest grapefruity citrus note. Sharp and clean on the palate with a quite fresh feel. More light grapefruit. Not bad but I was hoping for something a little more expressive and exuberant from a 6% IPA. Maybe not in perfect shape.

panzerwolf (215) - FINLAND - AUG 1, 2015
A medium-bodied IPA with floran notes. Tones of hay, kind of earthen with a little python bite. Bitter finish that sticks on your tongue, has some character!
