UPDATED: MAR 27, 2019 27-03-2019; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their December 2018 discovery box).
I drank the beer from the bottle, so it is hard to tell the looks. I poured a tiny bit into the cap. Te colour seems to be a pale golden yellow. As far as I can see the beer bubbles nicely and pours a rough white head. The beer is crystal clear. Not bad.
The aromas of the beer are alright. The beer is quite malty. The malts are grainy and a have some aromas resining me a bit of hay. A tiny bit rough maybe. The hops are lovely. They give nice aromas of citrus fruits, mainly citrus zest, lemon and some mango is in there to. The stone fruits are nice. The maltiness is just a tiny bit to strong. It is slightly out of balance.
The taste of the beer is fine. Medium sweetness and decent bitterness. The hops also bring some nice sour fresh notes. The different flavours are well balanced, but the beer feels a tiny bit rough.
The palate of the beer is alright too. Medium body, rough and slightly sticky texture and hight carbonation. The finish of the beer is short. It has some malty fruity citrusy hops in it, followed by strong bitter drought of the hops. All in all, a fine beer. But, it is a bit to rough and unbalance. The hops are great but the malts need some fine-tuning. Maybe the low alcohol plays a role here? The strong maltiness reminds me a bit of low-alcohol beers. INO_TRATTURI (129) - - FEB 24, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2019 Sono un amante del genere... Ipa molto speziata e fruttata, molto buona. Unica pecca la gradazione troppo bassa!!! Solo 3,5 gradi non vanno bene

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Bottle. Pours light amber with light haze. Off-white head.
Aroma a little floral, hay, some minerals.
Taste dry with clean bitterness.
Relatively low carbonation. meridian (173) - Dabrowa Górnicza, POLAND - JAN 14, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2019 Wygląd: Jasne, złociste. Klarowne z pianą o dużych oczkach. Ale piana nie trwała.
Aromat: Pierwsze co poczułem to lekkie szambo z butelki więc kiepsko ! Potem gdzieś pojawiła się marakuja i trochę starego chmielu.
Smak: Bardzo wodniste z niskim wysyceniem. Owoców nie ma, jedynie niska goryczka jak na lekarstwo. Nuda !
Ogólnie: Beznadziejny aromat i pusty smak. Powinno się nazywać Session lager bo koło IPY to może stało tylko na półce. pxkid1989 (84) - - DEC 26, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 German. Pours dark orange with small white head. It’s of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, hops. Taste is bitter with grapefruit, citrus peels, hops. Enjoyed this one a lot. Piepenhenrich (1793) - Steinbach, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2018 Golden/amber with a decent white head which is not built to last. Beautiful, intense hoppy aroma. First impression is hoppy, but it can‘t keep up to it. Watery body, slightly bitter palate. Good start, weak finish. Overall, drinkable. NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2018
Pale and just slightly cloudy, this beer produces a fairly decent head. The aroma is assertive, but not exactly overpowering or special: orange, grapefuit, pine. Bitterness is mildish and the overall character refreshing, though a bit thin. Not awful, but I'm mildly disappointed - I have tasted n/a IPAs with more hop power and individuality.
