bytemesis (4254) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle - thanks Ben! Bottled 3/12/2013. Pours cloudy amber-yellow with a few yeast floaties and a medium creamy beige head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, spruce, citrus, a touch of cat piss. Flavor is the same, very pine-needly, light biscuit malts. Light sweet, light bitter increasing somewhat to the finish. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.

Fresh, as you expect from the kernel and very rounded. An aftertaste that lingers for some time. Lots of hops tasting of citrus and pine. Not quite as sharp and dry as the Citra (still my favourite) but very, very good.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle@Home. Very hoppy aroma, little earthy. Pale yellow, white head, good lace. Very refreshing, not expecting this from the aroma, citrus, pine, yummy.

harrisoni (14856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Hazy orange gold with thin white head. Herby orange aroma. Soft in mouth. Good mouthfeel. Good orange. Herby. Decent bitterness on finish. Very soft and rather drinkable. It disappeared in about 5 minutes so I must have liked it. Bitterness is good so is the mouthfeel.

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours an amazing peach color with a big soapy white head. Aroma is hugely hoppy with tons of fruits: lemon, pineapple, peach. Some resinousness too. Taste is surprisingly low on bitterness, given the rich hopppy profile. Again, tons of summer fruits and resin. Medium bodied with good carbonation. One of the most refreshing and delighting beers drank recently. Amazing

jackl (5482) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle straight from the source. Medium amber pour with a small white head. Nose is big mango fruit. Loads of pacific tropical goodness. Pineapple and orange. Light kiwi and whatever the fuck they put in all those polynesian cocktails. The taste is wonderfully balanced. Light tropical fruits meets the sting of citric acid. Some lemon and mango smoothie. Slightly chalky cheesy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, fantastic. Other people can claim US IPAs are so much better if they want to. What do they know?

Bottle. Golden with short lasting white head. Very piney aroma, slightly resinous, grapefruit. Taste of caramel, resinous pine, grapefruit. Quite sweet with a sticky and slightly bitter finish. Nice
