downender (5907) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Deep gold in colour with a short-lived white head and moderate carbonation. tropical fruit aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a suggestion of pine. Flavour had more fruit, solid, biscuity malts, leading to a dryish, slightly peppery finish. Enjoyable.

JonMoore (1804) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle - old gold colour with slim white head. Citrus hop aroma with tropical fruits. Nice well balanced hoppy flavour with a long bitter finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Feels more like a pale ale than an IPA, but very good nonetheless.

wimpyjoe (2933) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a head. Good fruity tropical nose, although as it has plenty of strength its taste is a little more subdued but still citrus notes you associate with the tropics.

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Firm golden decent enough head that looms like nits about to flatten but keeps soloing it out until the finish. Neat white grapefruit nose, crispbread. Slekit bitterness, decent oily bitter flick on the palate. Dry kickback, more light lemon. Nice and sessionable but not grip to it.

yngwie (12608) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. It pours a clear, pale golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Cheesy nose with some citrus peel and flowers, pale malts in the back. The flavor has pale malts as a backdrop for citrusy, cheesy hops. A nice bitterness too. Dry, medium bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. Bitter finish. A boring one, that drinks easily. 131019

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle@home from beer Ritz
extremely dank and Piney nose, all about Chinook. Resinous with big bitter hit with touch of peaches coming in after. Hazy gold, perfect level of carb.

Beer4000 (4313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2013
Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma has some grassy hops, slightly spicy and quite much ripe fruit. Flavor is sweet and fruity, some pine and moderate in bitterness. Medium body and light aftertaste. Decent, but not much more.

MannyGoldberg (156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
At home- 13 Dec 2013. Judging by the BB date this bottle is about a month old. Clear golden colour with very thin head. Nose is grassy citrus with malts coming through. Flavour is sweet up front with a sharp bitterness at the end. Doesn't really feel like it's hanging together properly. Disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
