Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours a nice orange with very little head. Good carbonation. Big citrus aroma, with a nice bready malt balance. Flavors are very balanced and the palate is nice and smooth. Theres a bit of a minty aftertaste that Im not fond of, or else this beer would rate much higher in the taste and overall categories. Good beer, and different, but not something Id drink regularly.

bergstaden (2874) - Rros, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2017
Golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a hop profile that has fruity and herbal, spicy flavours - The hops with a good bitterness goes into the finish - This was good

Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn. Golden and clear with massive visible carbonation and a huge white head. Strong scent of citrus and tropical hops (pineapple and melon in the foreground) with a pleasant biscuity malt leveller. Sweet taste... although the bitterness of the hop is used for a balance, this is a surprisingly sweet IPA. Finish is slightly more bitter. A bit more pineapple and banana in the aftertaste. Its good but surprisingly low-key, and the alcohol is hidden well. Certainly worth trying.

One of the best IPAs Ive had. Citrus aroma leaning toward grapefruit. Pillowy pour. Mainly resin flavors. Crisp and light bodied.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Billed as an IPA, yet right up there with some DIPAs in abv at 7.5. Near Perfect blend of hops, malt yeast, with just enough alcohol tingle to produce an incredibly tasty, approachable, yet fairly strong/full flavor IPA. A true art of brewing creation - and priced reasonably. Appreciate the user friendly, non- hieroglyphic, dating on bottle.

Aroma doesn't even wait for the bottle to be poured, it ascends immediately. Pine, citrusy, slight pungent aroma comes through the thick white head. Great aroma. Almost smells resinous. Golden enough to show it will have some malt. Medium body due to breast malt, but all hops from begging of sip to the end. Citrus, some pine, just clean bitter hops that follow the aroma exactly. Bitter enough for a ton of flavor but just holds from over done. Slightly warms. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is fair. Strong mouth feel—very hoppy. Carbonated taste through with crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wojanex (151) - warszawa, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
znakomite piwo, wzorzec ipa, rześkie a zarazem głębokie, goryczka i owocowość, duża satysfakcja, gdyby nie absurdalnie wysoka cena byłby to sztos do wielokrotnego użytku, tymczasem jest to gratka do zaliczenia dla beergeekw.
