A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Light fruity and floral hop aroma. No malt or alcohol in the nose. Very light yellow, looks almost like a lager, slightly hazy. Taste is fruity upfront, slightly sweet middle and slightly cool/minty finish with a decent amount of hop bitterness lingering in the back of the palate. Very light bodied and mildly flavored for an IPA, although has the hop bitterness to back it up. Malt is very mild as I like it in an IPA, but this one isn’t anything too special.

50cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear light yellow golden with medium white head. Aroma: lots of citrus, bitter lemon zest, grapefruit, resin and some pine. Taste: medium sweetness with high bitterness. Notes of bitter grapefruit, lemon zest, tropical fruits. Yeast in the bitter finish. Palate: medium bodied, watery texture and lively carbonation.

JackMandarin (215) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2016
330ml bottle from local Tesco. Pours clear. Excellent pale colour. Light gold. Decent head and great lacing. Very lovely dankness in the aroma. Loads of resinous pine. Tropicality galore. Lovely ripe mango. Guava. Light lychee. Strawberry jelly. Professional. Taste is off-sweet to start. A solid dryness from the bready malt. Hint of brioche. Very pithy bitterness. There’s a taste-enhancing, umami, slightly salty note. Spicy. There’s a minerality to this. Long, crisp finish. A little juicy at the end. Slick on the palate. Medium to lightweight in the mouth. Fairly restrained carbonation. An OG beer right here!

0,5l bottle. Pours almost clear yellow with small white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is tropical fruit and some citrus. Body is quite light sweet with plenty bitterness and lively carbonation. Flavor is full of tropical fruit, pine, citrus and some malt. Long dry spicy bitter finish.

Bawelt (542) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2016
Franchement loin d’être top. Nez léger agrume, citronné, savonneux. Un fond vert. Bouche très légère, insipide, savonneuse, de la flotte.

toscanoigor (104) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - SEP 13, 2016
Do tap: Cerveja amarela, clara, muito bonita e convidativa, creme de baixa formação. Aroma cítrico e picante, malte, refrescante. O sabor acompanha o aroma, com notas frutadas, um pouco doce e especiarias. Final seco, amargor pronunciado. Desce muito suave, seca e refrescante. Ótima cerveja

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
- hellgelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Citrusfrüchten, Gras, Heu und eine leichte Spur Minze - passende Carbonisierung - bereits im Antrunk überwiegt die trocken-herbe Bitterkeit - dies hat leider im weiteren Verlauf die Nebenwirkung, dass für andere Aromen kaum Platz zur Entfaltung bleibt - dies ändert sich bis zum Abgang nicht Fazit: Trinkbares, aber leider auch ein etwas einseitiges IPA

Pale golden color. Aroma is citrus.Taste is also citrus and yeasty fruit, yes, grapefruit. Mild carbonation, very nice flavour on the tongue that with dry bitterness in the finish. This is nice and it feels almost healthy with all vitamin c flavour.
