wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2013
440ml/15floz can into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Mild malt with some gentle, pine-y hops. Pretty tame, but nice. Appearance: Dark gold body with a persistent, bubbly white head. High visible effervescence. Taste: Moderate piney hop presence. Straightforward, but really nice! Palate: Light-medium body with a short, flowery-hop finish. Overall: Pleasantly surprised! Actually some nice flavor in this one. A nice surprise indeed.

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Can. Golden and looking like a macro, this actually turned out to be a sturdy, even-keeled beer, if a bit "regular." There’s a mild aspect of, well ... everything ... Well balanced an quite drinkable. Pleasantly surprised. (#5587, 7/25/2014)

wimpyjoe (3715) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2012
Has a great nose to it, although a weak body. The crisp pale flavour makes up for this.

garthicus (2661) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Pale orange, thick snow white head, tons and tons of visible carbonation. Aroma: quite hoppy (I'm surprised) with a hint of lemon zest, barley and malt in there too. Flavour: Grassy hops however with a mild lemon Flavour running through it, grassy with lots of carbonation, long bitter finish. Not bad.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2012
On tap in Dublin. Pours a golden color with a thick white head made of tiny bubbles. Aroma of hops. Good IPA. I Recommend it.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled. Clear deep golden, rich head. Aroma of grapefruit and canteloupe. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Some grapefruit and gooseberry. Low-medium bitterness. Hoppy and quite pleasant.
