CullyD (5) - - SEP 22, 2017 does not count
Solid US style IPA. Hazy pale orange with off white foam that laces and stays in the glass. Clean, subtle tropical hop aroma with solid malt to balance. Big round mouthfeel. Nice sweetness countered by well judged hops. A hop forward beer without the huge bitterness of some of the beers in the style. Very, very good; a superbly balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

doriangrey (70) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2017
Smells lovely and fruity. Straw gold and hazy. Malty light fruit taste. Orange and melon. Reminds me a little of a wheat beer and lemonade combo style IPA. Pleasant and drinkable

TBone (17990) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Can 375ml (AbM, BB 10/2016)
Slightly hazy orange colour, small white head and lace. Tropical fruits, citrus and cardboard. Medium-bodied. Tropical fruity, pineapple and kiwi sweetness in the flavour. Pale malty, light grapefruit in the finish. Juicy IPA. Unfortunately Ales by Mail sold me very old can but this still shows some of its potential.
