Bottle at home, from www.beer-shop.gr. Creamy light brown head, good lacing, cloudy particles, cloudy medium to full body. Average sweet malty character, caramel, grain. Distinctively heavy hop character, grass, pine, citrus, grapefruit, orange peel. Hints of butter and honey. Dry finish, long bitter aftertaste. Great session IPA!

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/21/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes with a fair malt balance. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Moderate floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a decent malt balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected at 3.5%. Overall this is a highly excellent session IPA! Lots of hop flavor with nice complexity and robustness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Smell reminded me of a clean clothes smell that I had once really good actually, head on this beer was actually annoying prolonged and not enjoyable, still get the hops you want from a ipa but without the bite, because the alcohol level is lower, really good job with flavor still great beer

Extra tossed in on a recent trade. Wow this one surprised me. Pours a nice hazy orange with a decent head that leaves some lacing as it goes down. Smell is peaches and tropical fruit... Really nice. Taste again follows with the peaches and slight citrus. Palate is super clean and slightly dry. Great sessionable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours mostly clear golden-yellow-orange in color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is hoppy and very fruity, with mango, citrus/orange, and pine. Dry and hoppy flavor with average bitterness. A bit of sweet malt and a great complex fruity hop character. Medium-bodied with a good level of carbonation. Overall a really good beer, especially considering the low-ass ABV.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 Lots of herbal hop aroma and taste. Slightly cloudy golden color. Minimal head. Downside was thin body from lack of malt.
Rerate: probably the best 3.5% ABV I have ever tried!
