Nose is mango, some citrus. Taste is lightly hoppy, lemon balm slight mango, grassy, slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is appropriate. It’s drinkable, but not hoppy enough for an American style IPA but slightly to hoppy for an old school English IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear gold with two fingers of foamy white head, excellent retention, and heavy lacing. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and citrusy, giving way to a bitter finish. Mouth feel is watery, with medium body and sustained carbonation.
Pleasantly light and fruity, with nicely balanced sharp hop bitterness and mild malt. The ABV may be a little high to consider this a session ale, but it’s not far off that. Quite drinkable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Piwo dobre zwlaszcza pod wzgledem aromatu. Jest niesamowity ananas i melon. W smaku ananas i pieczone jablka oraz suszone morele. Lekko metnawe jasno zlote piwo z minimalna piana, ale to po angielsku wiec sie nie specjalnie czepiam. Chmielna nuta jest wyraznie kwiatowa i ananasowa. Dominuja te wrazenia slodowosc na dalszym planie. Finisz kwiatowy oraz ananasowy cutrusowy posmak. Piwo lekkie i pijalne.

If I had to choose one drink before face a firing squad
Or only allowed to take one drink with me on a desolate
Island, this would be my choice. DELICIOUS!!!

from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear pale yellow pour with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. lightly grainy and lean maltiness, caramel touch, english bitters - usual suspects, flowers, faint fruitiness - berries perhaps. touch of honey. moderate carbonation, light body - watery, relatively dry grassy-spicy-peppery finish. interesting interpretation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,50L. Hazy, dark yellow colour with average big, frothy, off-white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of orange, mango, peach, maracuya and similar tropical fruits. Taste starts light sweet and fruity. In the aftertaste flavor became a bit bitter, but as etiquette said "powerfully hopped", I expected much more bitterness, than I get. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not bad, but doesn’t impressed me.
