Aggiebob (87) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear golden yellow with a small white head and lots of carbonation. Light hop aroma and a lightly hopped bitter taste that finishes dry and clean. Ok, but I expected more of an IPA than a pale ale given its name.

Birra molto buona, appena si apre si sente il cascade in dry hopping. Schiuma persistente un buon amaro e bel colore. Consigliata per l’estate ;)

It is just ok. Nothin to write home about. Not overly hoppy. Clean finish. Some citrus notes. Give it a chance.

Small bitterness but not as rich tasting as I would have expected from a IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mR_fr0g (4372) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle at home from Whole Foods picadilly. Aroma is light grassy hop, light toasted malt, mineral, and a bit of berry. Crystal clear golden coloured pour with a lasting frothy white head. Flavour is composed of grassy , wet grass hop, bark, firm but rough bitterness. Malt profile is clean with a little biscuit. Finish is kinda rough with a little metalic abrasiveness. Palate is light bodies, highish carbonation and a bit abrasive on the tongue.

Zitrus, recht schwaches Aroma. Schmeckt wässrig und langweilig, etwas herb. Naja.

wheresthepath (1660) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Keg in the Bootlegger, High Wycombe. Deep gold with a thin white head and a very light fizz. Light pine and floral flavours in a beer that seems quite thin and watery for the ABV. I mean, I like the flavour and it’s nice and refreshing but it’s a bit anaemic really- it drinks like a much weaker beer. Still an ok beer though.

Milter (184) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
Amber, clear, lovely. Pine, peaches, resin in the heady scent. Bittersweet, finely balanced with a slightly more bitter kick in the aftertaste. Certainly worth drinking.

mikkellund42 (608) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours opaque golden yellow with small white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, resin, spruce, pine and milk. Taste is medium sweet, medium to very bitter and light acidic. Body is oily with fizzy carbonation. Finish is long and mostly bitter with notes of spruce, resin, lemon, bitter grapefruit and white sugar.

ARH (650) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
12oz bottle, not poured. The aroma is doughy with citrus zest, peaches, and a light pine. Couldn’t see the beer well through the bottle, but could see that it appeared a decent amount of head was retained and laced along the bottle - based on other ratings, giving it a 3 so as not to handicap it. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter with perhaps slightly more sweetness than bitter. It’s oily and smooth with a soft fizz carbonation. The medium/medium-light body is juicy with lots of fruit as well as grains. A spicy finish is followed up by a dry and clean pine note.
