KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear medium yellow with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted for a good while leaving behind a thick foamy cap which produced some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was mild to say the least of a mild hay like malt, an herbal hop and a light moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a bit of citrus. The taste was mildly sweet and acidic with a note of caramel at first and then became mildly hoppy with notes of toffee and citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger for just a little while longer. Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation. Overall an average tasting IPA, a bit hoppy but nothing to overbearing...

Moderate persistent foam. Estimates aroma of mixed citrus fruit. Luscious caramel malt meetings first taste buds, then a delicate hoppy flavor of grapefruit and lemon with light sweetness of peach / mango. A little bit of pine needles felt in the aftertaste which is also dry. The light carbonation gives a soft and mellow IPA which is quite delicious.

fiammanghilla (801) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 23, 2015
Bottiglia 33cl comprata alla sogegross e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma così così. Senza infamia e senza lode si fa fin bere. Resina ma poco elegante ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

SkillsFactory (147) - ITALY - JUN 15, 2015
Dorata, limpida, testa di schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma di passion fruit, agrumi e malti chiari. Al palato stesse note con, in aggiunta, malto d'oro che ricorda una lager; nota amaricante erbacea finale. Corpo medio-leggero, non molto carbonata, acquosa.

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.
