Can. Golden pour. Aroma has fresh citrussy hop, biscuity malt, pineapple, mango and peach. Taste of citrus, soft grassy pine, peach, biscuity malt, tropical fruit and crisp. Tasty stuff, but a little more body would make it even better. gunnar (9096) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 16, 2017
Can from Gulating, Stavanger. Pours almost clear dark golden with a big creamy off-white head. Inviting malty and orange aroma, lots of marmelade. Taste is moderate bitter, grapefruit, unripe oranges, a bit thin mouthfeel, as expected

Single 12floz can from a mix-six purchased for $10. "16 0351 15:31 EK 92M," stamped on the bottom of the can. I’m not gonna look it up, no clear freshness date present. Poured into a nonic glass. It’s copper and has a sticking foaming head. Smells like pineapple, and other tropical punch much like a weak fruity mixed drink of this kind (not meant in a bad way, but pleasant). I gotta rate this better than some of the session IPAs I reviewed as it is better. It tastes like a watered down Sculpin with a smoother mango-melon flavor component. Goes down easy as it should. It does the job very appropriately for being a light-style IPA. Refreshing with a quick flush of fruitiness, a neato summer beer. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
Appearance: clear deep gold with one finger of medium-dense ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, light pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp dry moderate bitter slightly sharp finish. (3/5)
Quite nice, which makes the fact that there will be my last two from these guys for the foreseeable future all the more painful. (I’ve decided I have to boycott them because of the political activities of the parent corporation, Constellation. So, I’ll drink the ones I have left, and that’s it.) Bright citrusy hops lead the way over a very clean, almost non-existent malt backbone. Overall, the hop presence is impressive for such a light malt bill, and remains generally enjoyable until the tail end of the finish, which comes across as slightly thin, sharp, or astringent. Which, I guess, is an excuse to drink more… oh, right… (15/20)

355ml can into shaker. Aroma of cashews, wood shavings and resin. Golden bronze beer, good sudsy head, light carbonation. Sharp and crisp in the mouth. Medium bodied. Taste and finish have more pine plus some lemon and sweet grapefruit. Solid malt undertones linger. What a great beer! Easy drinking, complex and only 3.8%! Saeglopur (2178) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 4, 2017
355 ml can from Beergium.
Deep amber, clear body, with a big, fluffy, moderately lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of passion fruit, citrus, peach, resin, some pine, some biscuit.
Taste is pretty similar.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, medium dry, zesty, citric, piney, a bit fruity, slightly malty.
Very nice. Crisp, easy and very well balanced, with enough bitterness, especially towards the finish, to balance the fruitiness and the moderate, sweet malt body. Not an oustanding style example maybe, there are quite a lot of SIPAs like this, but really tasty considering the low ABV.
