Saeglopur (1663) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Yellow to amber hazy body with big, creamy, long-lasting, white head, that leaves a good lacing. Big aroma of grapefruit, mango, citrus, sugar, subtle minty notes. Great taste, dominant grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, candy and again some subtle mint, the bitterness shows up pretty early. Medium mouthfeel, oily, with a lively carbonation and a great long, bitter grapefruit and lemon peel finish. Top class IPA, refreshing, unique, pretty aggressive, but still well balanced.

Svesse (7765) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2013
(Draught at The Kernel Brewery, Bermondsey, London, 23 Nov 2013. 7.0%) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, lemon peel, passion-fruit, grass and biscuity malt. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, passion-fruit and a generous grassy, floral bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. Well made and tasty IPA with a generous hop presence. Very nice.

Tomy63 (200) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - DEC 4, 2013
(bottled 26.08.13), Couleur blonde, peu de mousse. Nez expressif, sur la résine, le citron, les agrumes. Bouche assez légère, très sèche, bonne amertume, sur le citron, ça manque un peu de fruits exotiques. Bonne carbonatation. Finale de bonne longueur, sèche, amère. Une bière bien faite, fraîche, désaltérante, dans un style "à l’anglaise", mais ça manque de complexité et d’exotisme.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pale, hazy golden colour with a firm white head. Aroma of rich tropical fruits, gooseberry bush, pineapple and sweet mango. Flavour is very aggressive with it’s massive bitterness, juicy mango, floral notes, herbs, pale malts and wooden notes. Medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel and a dry, very bitter lingering finish with just keeps going. It’s like eating raw hop cones with a mango lassi.

cagou007 (1003) - FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2016 Pours a murky pale yellow colour with a medium white head. Nose is tropical fruit. Aromas are flowers, but mainly pineapple and mango. Long fruity and [very] bitter finish. Great IPA, maybe with a too strong bitterness, due to Mosaic hop.

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Thin bubbly white head, some lacing, cloudy golden body. Good hoppy nose, grass, pine, lemon and grapefruit. Flavour is sweet tropical fruit followed by massive bitterness from the hops, grass, resin, straw. Light bitter hops on the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Immensely drinkable.

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottled, 330ml from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Hazy gold with white head. Good fruity but dry malted body carrying the Mosaic hop, seemingly a Citra hop with knobs on. Masses of pineapple and grapefruit, tangy citrus then a lightly acrid pine like flavour just bringing everything back to earth. Good stuff.
