Fresh hoppy, sweet malty, citrus, candy aroma. Pale clear liquid with a white head. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Too sweet in my opinion. Soft carbonation, medium-full body. thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden/light amber body, small head. Aroma has sweet toffee-like caramel and summery floral hops. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the beer has a decent bitterness. Taste has floral hops with light citric zest. Some more light toffee in the finish. A nice and easygoing IPA, not sure about the innovation part. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2016

330ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a small white head. Very citrusy (grapefruit) hoppy aroma. Flavour is also dominated by the grapefruity hoppiness, there’s a light citric bitterness but it’s also a little sweet, nice balance there, also a hint of malt. For 6.7% ABV the alcohol is well hidden. Nice IPA.
