olio (5294) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Konttori, Tampere. BBE 31.12.2013.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Quite strong lemon aroma on this one, grass, citric hops and mild caramel also. A bit pils-like aroma. Flavour of grass, caramelly hops, faint goose berries and some toffee notes. Grassy and refreshing, medium carbonation, grassy bitter palate. Nice.

Pours hazy yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma of mango, pasdion fruit, peach, citrus, grapefruit. Hints of blood orange. Taste is raw, distinct and pungent bitter with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. So-so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Slightly muted smell, with quite a thick white head and mid yellow slightly cloudy body. Some lemon and herbs, some grass and green apple. Highly carbonated. Some tropical fruits but not quite enough body to get pass the overwhelming bitterness.

Nilz (345) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2013

johninmelb (1117) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Sprucey, peppery nose with some spiced mango. Flavour is hugely bitter with tons of late, wet hopping going on - new world, probably new zealand - motueka? Nelson Sauvin? Not sure. But fine - fat with citrus, bitter with fresh pine forest earth and burnt orange rind. Juicy, dry and hugely moreish. Good.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm
Cloudy orange amber color with creamy head. The aroma is mild, with delicate peachy fruitiness, and very light spicy yeast, but also a suspicious sourness (very light). Smooth mouthfeel; good malt and toffee flavor, with very strong bitterness, loads of hop resins and and orangey character, bitter oranges, and also a strong yeast character; long final, it’s also quite earthy (soil, dust) in the end.
Good, but quite rough.

Desverger (1288) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
keg@Catford Bridge Tavern, SE London - Golden orange pour with creamy white head. Citrus fruit hop heavy (big grapefruit) on the aroma/taste, with pine and malt nuances. Lovely. (D17)

ACD (579) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 8, 2013
Keg dispense at The Bacchus, Newcastle. Light hazy orange with thick white head & plenty of lacing. Aroma is full of peach, mango, and grapefruit - great hop hit, very fresh. Taste showcases the grapefruit and tropical hops perfectly with just a touch of biscuit malt to back it up. Plenty of tangerine character going on too. Pithy grapefruit bitterness covers the palate and lasts long into the aftertaste. Slightly overcarbed, but that doesn't detract from the experience. Medium/dry finish. This is how I like my IPAs to be, very much enjoyed this.
