Pours clear copper with low white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peach and apricot. Taste is slightly floral with mild fruit sweetness and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Jultsu (253) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Punertava väri, isohko raikas sitruksinen tuoksu. Sama jatkuu suutuntumassa. Laimeahko jälkimaku ja vetinen, kuivahko. Virkistävän erilainen.

330ml can from Morrisons. Deep amber colour, off-white foam head and aroma of tropical fruity, floral citrus, hoppy. Taste is sweetish malt caramel with peachy, orangey citrus and pine bitterness. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry tangy earthy bitter finish. Quite drinkable. .

330ml Can. I swilled six of these right from the can like Steve Austin but did pour a bit out to witness its colour for this rating ... This stuff was nice after being teatotal all week and sadly watchin’ Brentford lose their play off semi final. I luv craft beers in these small cans . Very functional and cool . The beer had a nice peach like palate , aromatic enough to not be in the ESB neighbourhood . I will buy this beer again.

Scotbrew (7) - - MAY 15, 2015 does not count
Pours an unexpected but attractive dark amber colour. Aroma is floral, with underlying hints of grapefruit and some caramel sweetness. Flavour is fairly standard session IPA, balanced malt and hops, quite pronounced caramel character. Medium carbonation and slight bitter finish.

Jonb5 (421) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
330ml can, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Bronze, clear, two finger slightly tanned head which morphed into a lid of film , decent amount of lacing. S: Citrus hops dominated. T: There was a really strong malt backbone which gave plenty of earthy bitterness, also had strong hints of fruit from the hops. M: Medium body, moderately carbonated. O: Billed as an American style IPA, but seemed heavily influenced by English bitter or ESB.

MarkoNm (1194) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 4, 2015
Thanks to olliejobbins for this one. Pours a clear dark amber color, topped with lots of solid and lasting beige colored head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, followed by some malty notes. Taste starts with some gentle fruity sweetness, there’s a decent hoppy bitterness in teh body and finish. Very nice and easily drinkable IPA.
