Light golden body and small head. Post modern hops, zesty, grapes, mineral, green apple. Pale malt, unique. Very well developed and great drinkable body. Yum. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

tomekk1978 (505) - POLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Barwa: słomkowa, sano złota, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: słodowy z delikatna nutą chmielową (cytrusy i trochę geranioli). Ogólnie mało wyrazisty. Smak: dość wytrawny, z wyraźną chmielową kontrą i ziołowym akcentem chmielu, zbliżonym do geranium. Tym razem owoc kooperacji browaru Thornbrodge z ameryksńskim Sierra Nevada. Ten pierwszy miał odpowiadać za słody i drożdże, a drugi za chmielenie (ponoś zastosowano szyszki). Nie jestem zbyt wielkim entuzjastą stylu pale ale, jednak z uwagi na zapowiadanie chmiele amerykańskie Twin Peaks zapowiadało się ciekawie. Nie posiadam informacji dotyczących użytych odmian, ale zdecydowanie mnie one nie przekonały. Walory wizualne były co prawda bardzo dobre, ale aromat już wyraźnie słabszy, nie mówiąc o smaku, w którym dominują geraniole - niezbyt przyjemne. Piwo spędziło, co prawda 2 miesiące w mojej szafie, ale data przydatności jest o wiele dłuższa. Moim zdaniem nie warto.

pivnizub (8919) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
Bouteille: Golden with a greenish haze, loose but stable White head; moderate to distinctive citrussy and grainy nose with a slight piney touch; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, nearly medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering citrussy-fruity finish with a slight tart bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice and pleasant, another gem from Thornbridge...

martjoobolut (789) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2014
Tap at Pudel, Tallinn. Pours clear yellow-golden with small head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is some fruits and malt. Flavor is sweet, fruits, citrus, peach, and caramel. Finish is mild dry-grapefruit bitter. Overall: easy to drink, but not really interesting.

tap. foam gone in no time. smell promises more than taste can deliver. it is basically an ipa, but carbon is too strong. feels watery and leaves hardly any aftertaste. like a way too bright, sunny and windy day at the golden gate.

Sjohnh (198) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Light amber with very little lasting head - could be mistaken for a crappy pale lager. Aroma puts that right straight away; pineapple, citrus and grass. Similar taste, with a medium body and good level of carbonation. Very drinkable beer.

0,5 l bottle shared Appearance: Clear light gold beer, big creamy irregular white head, w Aroma: citrus, grass dominating with some malts. Taste: Big on a refined citrus taste, grass, hints of grapefruit and pineapple and a touch sourness, nice bitter finish. Not too sweet. medium carbonation, slightly below medium body.

Idiosynkrasie (3910) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral hoppy aroma, notes of lime. Taste is slightly grassy and strawy dry hoppy, a touch of lime; thin and watery. An uninspired collab of two brewers, who can do much better.
