Aromat skórki pomarańczy i trawiasty, smak to cytrusy, zest, lekka popiołowość (?) i trawiasta goryczka, dość intensywna. Dobre ale bez historii.

Can from Grumbo, thanks man! Slightly hazy golden color with frothy off-white head. Aroma is really hoppy with floral, fruity and also grassy notes. Taste follows with citrusy hops, some grainy malts in the background, light bitterness up-front which builds up to medium on the finish with some lingering orange pith flavor. Medium to light body but feels quite smooth on the palate, also well carbonated. An excellent example of a well made IPL.

Had in a can from Rehills of Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. An enjoyable IPL but not quite as balanced as their hoppy masterpieces usually are.

minutemat (5546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Can. Pours a misty gold, large white head. Brisk floral aroma with some zesty citric fruit. Relatively light on the palate, with an extremely well-balanced floral, fragrant, zesty hop character with a soft bitterness. Excellent summer beer.

Can split at L42 ... before this was even a style ! 14/03/17. Very lightly hazed golden with a decent off white head. Nose is citric peel, bread, pissy tropicana, light pine needle, fresh grass. Taste comprises toasted grains, pale and bready malts, light pine, orange pith, melon, fresh grass, melon, light mineral trace. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close spiked with juicy hop bitterness. Solid exponent of this futuristic style!
