Taste is medium to light sweet malt and biscuit, moderate fruity-watermelon, floral and grapefruit hoppiness, medium+ bitterness, a bit harsh, dry finish. Medium- bodied, oily, soft carbonation.

olio (8455) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
33 cl can. BBE 17.08.2016.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Very appealing floral hoppy aroma, lemon and subtle herbal notes, grapefruits. Sweet caramel up front on the flavor, orange and lemon follows, bitter hops, some grapefruit and pale malts. Carbonation is medium, sweet malts linger on the aftertaste. Very refreshing yet slightly sweet brew.

Scottishchris (552) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Can from beerhive. Very light haze, gold. White head. Big pungent grapefruit marmalade and melon. Medium body, low carbonation. Thick mouth. Doesn't quite follow up the big nose on the tongue but good citrus and soft tropical fruits. Good stuff, just not sure about the finish.

weordie (567) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Fizzy golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is orange juice. Very creamy for an IPA. It’s got some orange flavour but a mouth drying bitterness to finish.

Aroma: lemon cheesecake, oranges, light pine, pale malts. Appearance: clear gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, citrus and oranges again, grain malts, turns slightly bitter and dry in the finish. Overall: very nice IPA, nice citrus fruits in aroma and palate.
