CanCrusher (670) - Ilirska Bistrica, - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden colour with white head, that leaves some nice lacing. Strong aroma of tropical fruits like mango, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange and some piney notes. Very hoppy bitter taste, dragging all that fruits with it. Excellent beer!

mabel (6723) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
[6500-20140709] Cask. Plastic grassy lemon peel aroma. Clear, pale orange yellow body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Bitter butterscotch lemongrass flavour has a long citrus hops finish. Medium body. Delicious, definitely a highlight of the trip. (8/5-/8/5/17) 4.3

MarkoNm (767) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, a bit darker, topped with a very small white head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, I could pick up some lychee aroma, and some biscuity notes later on. Taste is bitter from the start, hoppiness in the finish and sadly some unpleasant metallic feel in the afterfinish. Still, not bad.

Bottle 500ml @ Cardinal, Stavanger
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grass, floral and cheese. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long grassy bitter and slightly dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Draught at Beer O’Clock, Bucharest. Moderately bodied, light sweet with a bitter backbone. Tons of fresh hops - lychee, citrus and herbs. Amazingly well crafted, balanced, flavourful. Both thumbs up!

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a clear, very attractive dark golden colour, with a dense white head. Massive aroma of fresh Citra hops, peaches, freshly cut grass and some caramel. Lovely citrus flavours, lots of pineapple and grapefruit. Finish was wonderfully balanced bitter resin, dry grain and biscuit.

Psytron (1396) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Smell of malts. Hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of malt, orange peel, some hops in finish, traces of rubber. Bitter. dry palate.

dfroms (350) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours nearly clear pale gold with small head that subsides. Aroma is lightly sweet malts, honey, mellow pineapple, peach, grapefruit, lemon peel, pine. Pleasant. Taste is where this beer really shines though: fruity juicy mango and canned peaches with lychee nectar, honey, and low to medium hop bitterness. Amazing how juicy this comes off, just until the very end. Low carbonation. One of the better European-made American style IPAs I’ve had.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2014
Fad, Ørsted Ølbar. Ravgylden, let uklar, lavt hvidt skum. Vidunderlig aroma, klassisk citra, men meden lidt uforløst, mere herbal, græsset humlesmag. Noter af karamel. Fin bitterhed.
