Bright, clear amber in colour. Bit of lacing, not much head. Brisk, hoppy aroma. Tangerine, tropical notes. Taste is slightly bitter, with lots of fruitiness. Palate is light to medium. Quite crisp overall and leaves the mouth dry. Lots of interest in here despite the relatively low alcohol content.

33 cl bottle from silja symphony. Pours amber with little head. Sweet winey aroma with sweet hop taste. Nice long aftertaste with some tropical fruits.

Garrold (2598) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Can. Morrisons. Clear, coppery amber. Film of lasting, off white head. Juicy, tropical fruit action. Decent malty backbone. Some banana toffee. Taste is well balanced sweet and bitter. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Finish gets juicy bitter, with a light dry close. Factor in the £1.65 price tag on top of a very decent beer and it makes one I’ll definitely have again.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a copper colour with a small foamy head. Aroma is very mild with notes of grass, bready malts and some hay. Flavour of grassy hops, bready malts, mild raisiny sweetness and hay. Light bodied with a bit harsh carbonation. Can’t be an IPA.

lobs_ols (391) - LATVIA - JUL 17, 2015
Clear dark gold, medium white head. Lovely US hopa aroma - notes of tropical fruit, earl gray, and some roastiness. Medium body, balanced bitter with some sweetness. Delightful play of roasty body with the bitter nuances. Very good.

Aroma has a hint of barnyard and leather. Nice golden and hazy color. Very minimal head. Lightly bitter, hint of hops in taste. Palate has lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall not bad at all, I was wishing a bit more hoppiness.

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Rating 1132 - 23.06.2014 - 12oz black bottle at @revolutionyeg. Aroma is grassy, lemon, pine, pepper. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, lots of grassy, spicy hops on the palate but very well balanced, citrusy sweetness of grapefruit meets a sharp dry-hop bitterness. Solid IPA.

Pours amber with a moderate head. Hoppy nose with a hint of citrus fruit. Fruity and hoppy flavour. Easy drinker, brilliant

Can from Morrisons. This must be one of the sweetest beers available. Super-sweet. If Thwaites rolled it back a bit, it would be a lot nicer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught@Hilpeä Hauki. Amber color, tan head. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Malty flavor with some floral hops, hint of grapefruit. Somewhat uneven finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not really apa/ipa material.
