From bottle at a tasting. Fairly routine in appearance, nose was nice--pine and citrus. Medium body and a nice sharp finish. Would have preferred more bitterness, but drinkable. Would make a reasonable introductory IPA.

Wasn’t a real big fan of this one. Really off putting flavor. Very pleased it was free and I didn’t have to waste my money on this.

jant (1) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
Pale, almost clear, light appearance; almost no foam. Slightly malty, flat hops, bland, not much bitterness. All in all, somewhat boring. Probably an enjoyable, refreshing drink on a hot day, but not something to be enjoyed on its own.

Poured from bottle, clear gold with medium head. Aroma subtle with notes of caramel and some citrus. Taste is slightly bitter with a medium body. Very smooth and subtle.

eduardovl (1044) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a clear light orange color forming a medium white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention and lots of lingering lacings Left in the glass. Strong notes of sweet pale malts and flowery, grassy and piny hops. Slightly sweet malts in upfront. Medium bitterness. Hops have a grassy and piny profile. Hops bitterness is not bad but, not persistent. Body is also quite deceptive. Quite watery. Medium to low carbonation. Piny and grassy aftertaste. Good drinkability. Not bad but I was expecting more from an American IPA.

labeerinthum (7) - ITALY - MAY 7, 2015 does not count
Bottiglia. Una dry hopping di alta fermentazione, color oro, non filtrata, velata, profumata, con forte sentore di luppolo, schiuma cremosa, intensità olfattiva molto elevata e dalla lunga persistenza gustativa.

TheJester (2091) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Funny little medicine bottle. Smells good, but not much going on, otherwise. Some hop flavour, but lacking in bitterness.

Silent (2) - ITALY - APR 24, 2015 does not count
La mancanza di un solido retrogusto amaro, che è il maggior difetto di questa IPA, è paradossalmente l’aspetto che me la fa apprezzare di più. Un po’ annacquata, una specie di the alla pesca con un lieve retrogusto amaro, ma non del tutto disprezzabile. È un po’ la classica "birra da partita" versione IPA.

Fisler (155) - GERMANY - APR 23, 2015
Im Glas trüb-golden, perlt schön, schöner, Schaum, bricht im IPA-Glas aber schnell weg. In der Nase sehr fruchtig, Orangen, Ananas, hallo Cascade. Setzt sich Trunk fort. Der Alkohol will immer mal durch, schaffst aber nicht ganz, das ist gut, so bleibt es sehr ausgewogen. Interessanter Abgang, erst süß, dann matt, hinten weg wenig Bums, aber sehr angenehm zu trinken. Geile Flasche!

fellebag (1087) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 17, 2015
12 fl.oz. bottle. Small white layer. Hazy light peach color. Aroma is nettles, spruce shoots, american hops. Taste is bitter with evergreen notes.
