mcberko (6033) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a clear orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of orange fruits, resinous hops and dry caramel malts. Flavour is very similar, with fruity orangey hops, resin and juicy caramel malt. Very well-balanced, with perhaps too fruity a palate. Good stuff.

minutemat (1377) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Keg @ Euston Tap. Pours amber with good head. Decent hoppy APA with pine, grapefruit and tropical um bongo juice. Refreshing Summer beer.

Jatxo (3) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2014 does not count
IPA que no parece una IPA salvo por el color de las maltas. Bebida en barril. Sin amargor. Sin aroma. Puede pasar por una Hefe Weizen normalita, pero no argumenta su estilo.

mkam (135) - POLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours light orange colour with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and grass plus unfortunately some unpleasant sulphur notes. Taste of citrus, fruits and low malt note. Bitter aftertaste. Apart from unpleasant notes in the aroma it is a quite nice IPA.
