dhatton (185) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Drank many times, but never rated. Hazy golden body with white head. Sharp citrus and pine aromas. Subtle doughy malt scents come through as well. Juicy grapefruit citrus and pine taste. Sticky feel with moderate bitters. Sessionable and widely available.

Shameful! This stock grocery beer, as good as it is in its class, should NOT have a 90+ rating, putting it above many superior beers in a class this one can’t measure up to. The brewing company must have paid a company to post high ratings. Shameful! The juniper botanical is cloyingly prominent, and it’s not effervescent enough for my liking. The body seems a bit flat, too. As far as grocery beers go, this is one of the best in its class, but seeing that it’s 90+ percent is like seeing a Honda at 90 above a Mercedes at 80 in its class. For shame.

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Anaranjada, turbia. Un dedo de espuma. Lúpulo en el aroma. Excelente en boca, con buen cuerpo y un extraordinario sabor cítrico, de naranja principalmente, que le da el lúpulo Cascade, que marca todo el conjunto, con una amargor constante de principio a fin, junto con el dulzor, también constante de la malta. Equilibrio perfecto en una ale redonda y grandiosa, que deja el recuerdo en boca durante largo rato.

Krigla (123) - SLOVENIA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a small white head which dissapears quickly. Average carbonation. Fruity aroma. Taste of citrus with nice bitter finish. Overall very good beer.
