TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2012
Can from World Beers. Hazy gold pour with a lot of sediment at the finish. Short white head with decent retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is balanced: citrus and malty light fruits – very pleasant. Medium-heavy body and moderate carbonation. Oranges, apricots, tea, biscuit and pine. It has characteristics of some of my favorite IPAs, but in small amounts. Finish is quite bitter, which may be a function of age or distance or storage conditions. Surprisingly good and well-balanced. If I could get this at a decent price it would be in regular rotation.

Juice can poured. Bright orange pour with an endless foam head and lacing. Big leather hop profile. Soft fruit aroma, with some grains. Slightly bitter on the finish. Strange brew, but it’s not bad. Unique, unidentifiable flavor usually leads to drinkability for me. Fun to try.

tricksta_p (2409) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2015
Can at home. Aroma of grapefruit, malty notes, hint of caramel, citrus, orange, hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Pleasant fruity hoppy IPA with a sweetish malt backbone.

cokolwiek11 (200) - POLAND - NOV 18, 2015
Golden color almost clear beer, big white head, medium bubbles, dont stays long. (pouring from can, I quess) Nice aroma: citrus, sweet tropical fruits, some resin/petroleum (mosaic like notes). Low malty sweetness. Good. Taste: light sweet, medium bitter, very plesant, sharp but short. Flavours of citrus, fruits, hints of grassy/resiny notes. Palate: medium bodied, pretty dry, low carbonation, drinkable. Overall: good IPA. More like west coast style. Refreshing. It’s like you just wanna take another sip.

Can from Uba ja Humal. Pours clear golden with a strong bone-white head. Grapes and tropical fruit with some sweetness. Sweet, bitterness more in line with a bitter than an IPA. Slick with a light body and soft carbonation

Can from Koht. Oh dear, bbe 30.10.2014. Should have checked the can before buying it. Pours amber with a thick white head. Mostly herbal notes, malt and earthy notes. Flavor has caramel malty sweetness and mild herbal notes. Not much hops here anymore. Rerate needed.

Burnt orange with a stark white head. Floral and some citrus hops on the nose, additionally some honey and sweet malts. Some orange and honey flavours in here, beautifully constructed malt back bone - a very well balanced beer. Soft finish with a gentle carbonation.
