UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Bottle at home bought from honestbrew.co.uk. has a biscuity malt to it but lacks the flavour of hops and flavour from them jinroh (2579) - ESTONIA - NOV 19, 2017
Bpttle. Pours amber with some reddish hue, slight clouds and frothy white top that dissipates in short moment. Aroma has fruity-malty backbone with some grassy hops on top. Hops are somewhat gone though, mainly that hop marmalade feel to it. Taste has still lots of happiness, quite resiny - but not heavy nor sweet. Grassy, yes. Dry herbal grassy finish. Solid IPA, especially when to consider that my sample is not the freshest out there. hrabren (2044) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 19, 2017
Murky dark golden to amber. Small, lasting off-white head. Medium to heavily hoppy, strong grapefruit and zest aromas, some vegetable or spice. Dry, light hoppy, nice balance. Medium body, chewy, full taste, moderate carbonation, moderately lasting dry finish. Really well done. DraftDodger (1853) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2017
Copenhagen 19/11-2017. 33 cl bottle from Ørsted Vine. As Hoptimista American IPA. Quite strange drawing on the label with an Business Man with an Hop-flower head and a landscape with Hop-flower heads popping in. Pours hay amber wit a very big off-white head. Settles as 5 cm thick crown of foam. Aroma is intense. Exotic fruit and glue. citric notes. Low carbonation and slightly thick creamy palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and finish semi-dry. A bit too sloppy - and I am not crazy about the glue odor. But certainly decent. kaserov (1170) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 29, 2017
Color naranja, bastante turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma cítrico, herbal y a grano. Sabor cítrico, con peladura de naranja, pomelo, suaves toques de pino y algo de resina. Base de cereal demasiado presente. Final de amargor suave que no dura demasiado. Postgusto a pino.
rosenbergh (12021) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2017
330 ml bottle. BB 13/Aug/18. At the Drink Bar, Tallinn, Estonia.
Clear amber golden color with a small light tan head.
Hops, bitterness and super strong caramel malt in the aroma.
The flavor is resiny and piney hops, moderate bitter and way too strong caramel maltiness. Too sweet.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Øv. Smagte accidental jedy for et par måneder siden, og der var jeg helt oppe at ringe.
Denne her er meget maltet og sød. Den mangler friskhed. jesperhammer (5039) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2017
22-SEP-2017, bottle @Madrid appartment, from local supermarket, with Morten. Slightly hazy, dark golden with a lasting, tan head that laces. Very malty and hoppy fruity. Grape fruit, pine, over ripe fruit, caramel. Dry-hopped clearly. Very bitter but also sweet. A bit rough but tasty. Not a West Coast style? Too malty for that. herrklemann (574) - Graz, AUSTRIA - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle. Almost clear amber with on off-white head. Grapefruit, pine, resin, some malts, honey, herbs. Nice. Medium sweetness, lightly salty, medium bitterness. Medium, oily body with pearly carbonation. Well balanced, juicy, not overdone like some other West Coast IPAs. R4N5H (1392) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 On tap at Cocovail Beer Hall, Barcelona on 26-Aug-2017. Clear golden colour with a medium sized white head which settles down, leaving decent lacing down the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, malt and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, peach, melon and floral hops. Medium bitterness. Pretty decent IPA.
