FatPhil (13646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2013
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.

imdownthepub (13084) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Bottled 330ml from Sandra. Gold with white, slightly fizzed, head. There is a good fruity aroma on opening, oranges then on the palate there is a clean, citrusy flavour, bitter and lasting. Pretty decent.

bierkoning (12284) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Golden color. Butter and some hops in the aroma. Oily citric hopbitter but also buttery flavor. Diacetyl all over the place, partly ruining a good IPA. Oily mouthfeel.

Scopey (12247) - 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.

rosenbergh (10208) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
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.

pivnizub (10102) - 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...

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, 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

allmyvinyl (9358) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow with a billowy white head, which stays around to the end. Smells of dough and lemon, and a bit of butter. More cereals on the taste, and a little too sweet for me. Expecting hop balance to come, but it didn’t. OK.
