330ml bottle (kaisla, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity hop aroma some sweet caramelly malts.. Slightly watery palate, pleasant carbonation. Very nice sweet malty body, some fruity hops, and some nice huskiness. Shame about the lthinness, if this was unfiltered it would be great.

pivnizub (9004) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden, clear, small stable white foamy layer, distinctive bitter-sweet grapefruity-malty nose; very soft, medium bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; again, lingering, grapefruity-hoppy finish. Nice stuff...

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled 04/12/13. An orange coloured headless beer. A fruity aroma. Peachy notes throughout. A nice body. Good hops and good citricity. Works nicely. Not really an IPA but it is a tasty beer. Touch of sweetness.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruity and mildly piney hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit and tangerines on a delicately bready malty background. Mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Citrus-fruity and mildly cara-malty, delicately bready taste; sweet-bitter fruity hoppy and shy piney finish. An IPA for starters in the double sense. 20.XI.12

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at Inn Deep, Glasgow. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, soor plooms (boiled sweets), passion fruit, bread/fruit loaf and a touch of spice. The taste is crisp, earth, grass, wood, dough, toasty, light caramel, lemon and some soap with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent.

330 ml bottle. BB Mar/2014. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear deep amber colour with tiny to small frothy white head. Smooth American hoppy aroma with sweet candies and fruit and malty body. Fruity tea-like hops, candies and mild bitterness in flavour. Smooth and tasty.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a clear gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up some spicy somewhat yeasty notes followed by fruity malt sweetened citrus as well as a mineral note. The taste has a decent load of malt sweetened citrus hops creating a citrus gummy bear to sweet hard candy like sensation. Quickly the hops do get increasing bitter to midway and into the finish to the point of becoming pleasing tart grapefruit notes to a touch of lime. This achieves a tasty citrus hop bitterness with only echoes of the initial sweet citrus hop flavor into the finish. Darn nice IPA.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 12/10/2012. Golden with a slight white head. Aroma of tangerines and grapefruit with some sweet malt. Flavour had more citrus fruits, pineapple and a touch of spice. Finish was pleasantly long.
