Bottle. Haxy gold with an off white head. Aromas are woody pine and pineapple with yeast. Lychee with candy sugar and thin grapefruit. Toast with floral notes and herbal and slightly minty notes. Flavours are sweet biscuit with mixed tropical fruit and leafy, herbal notes. Slightly green pine with grapefruit bitterness and zesty lemon. Very nice.

Never let down by Citra hops. This checks all the boxes for a west coast IPA. Citrus fruits, grapefruit and exotic fruits. Inclusion of wheat gives it a cloudy body and decent head. Well done.

Sjohnh (148) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Nice IPA. Creamy, medium bodied, with pleasant fruity aromas. Good blend of fruit in the taste - orange, lemon, kiwi, grapefruit - with some pine and toffee sweetness. Good bitterness following up. Looks dour: brown, cloudy and pithy, with a good white head though.

FatPhil (9288) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pleasant fruity hop aroma, fleshy, peachy. Pale orange, small head. Simple laste, just pale ale malts and cookie cutter modern IPA aromatic hops. Thin and a bit dull. Had this a hundred times, it fails to excite any more.

Marduk (2658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 12, 2014
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Fruity, sweet, hoppy aroma. Very mild and soft aroma. Sweet, hoppy, spruce, citrus in taste. Nice fresh hops in aftertaste. Nice herbal body. Nice brew!

MichaelAwesome (3920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Thick and fruity IPA with some citrus and big hops upfront. Quaffy, easy to go and highly drinkable. Bit unbalanced end but a classy one in the end.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from my Summer Santa - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep light golden-amber colour with steady ehad and medium body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and pine. Taste of fresh hops, spruce, pine, thyme, coriander, oranges, peaches and light barley. Wonderful quaffable and easy to drink. Big beer.
