Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth malt base, whisper of cream but it’s not too sweet. Citric peel hops, notbtoo aggrrssive. Finishes smooth. Quite a tasty and drinkable IPA.

beerfest5 (1068) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 8, 2014
In the crowded world of IPA’s these days, its tough to come out in the middle ground because most people have tasted an IPA that they love, either traditional English variety, or an American hop bomb, this was neither and really didn’t come out well. Bready malt character like an English IPA mixed with apple juice which is way too sweet and annoying. The hops bring a distinctive citrus note to the flavor, but again, combined with this weird apple taste becomes very unappetizing.

wimpyjoe (2986) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazed amber in colour with a thick bubbly head. It does have a minty floral aroma and a heaviness within its hoppy character. Has a very small graininess in its taste with some sweetness.

Bottle - hazy amber with thick white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pine with underlying malts. Similar in the taste with nice bitterness throughout and some light fruit.

JanLaursen (2732) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Flaske, 50 cl. Let uklar, ravgylden med et lille hvidt skum på toppen. Syrlig spids citrus, næsten lager-eddike i næsen. Ret let krop, stadig ret syrlig, græs, hø, medium bitter, astringerende finish. Pudsig, meget britisk - restrained.

larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2013
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body. Resiny fruity aroma with strange herbal notes. Dry-sweet resiny grape and straw taste with funky citric notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly mealy mouthfeel, with some fizz. Dryish grape and gooseberry aftertaste with mealy wooden notes. Nice, drinkable, slightly odd. (0.5l bottle, from Toft Vin, Copenhagen.)
