343 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2-3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, peppercorn, pine, lightly toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, peppercorn, pine, lightly toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, peppercorn, pine, lightly toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate bready flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero astringent hop/yeast flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, fairly grainy, and lightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3%. Overall this is a very nice Belgian session IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light-moderate bready flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Holding up very well, despite the best by dating. Hops still have nice vibrancy. A very enjoyable offering. harrisoni (18823) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2017
On tap at Kent Beer Festival 2017. Hazy gold colour lasting cream head. First beer after an uphill cycle ride so always tastes good. Light esters. Some citrus hoppy flavour. Full flavoured for such a low abv beer. Served nicely cold. Not overly bitter. NordicV (2370) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2017
Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doft och smak har viss gräsighet, lättare jästtoner samt ört- och citrustoner. Något tunn kropp. carlom (62) - ITALY - JUL 7, 2017
Colore giallo paglierino, schiuma pannosa persistente, media carbonazione. Aromi di malto e di frutta. Al palato, lupponili, limone e accenni di vaniglia. Una birra leggera in cui le note catteristiche della ipa sono presenti ma non eccessive. Corpo adeguato alla sua gradazione alcolica, da bere a temperatura sostenutA.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)martjoobolut (4533) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 21, 2017
Almost eco graininess in the aroma, some perfumey hops too. Orange, persistent spongy head. Light palate, crisp carbonation. Blandish malts, grainy and a bit bready. Gentle perfumey and floral bitterness. Never gets far beyond clean and nice. For the strength, a good brew though, does have some character. Better after a little sitting to bring out the malts and hops, and to flatten the carbonation a bit.
Bottle (from Koht). Pours amber with huge whiteish head. Aroma is hoppy, sweet, citrus, pineapple. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, grass, citrus. Body is on the thin side. Overall: very solid hoppy brew considering the ABV. SylvainCFC (274) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2017
Robe orange voilée à opaque. Col de mousse important, blanc légèrement cassé, aérée, tenue assez bonne. Nez fort houblonné, herbeux, résineux et fruité (passion et agrume). Bouche légèrement huileuse sur le houblon herbeux, résineux, avec des touches d’agrumes et maltées. Finale légèrement citronnée. Amertume légère, peu agressive. Peu de rondeur, bouche plate, aqueuse, attendu avec un ABV si bas. Session IPA bien aromatique sans excès, corpulence légère, ultra-buvable. Marduk (7936) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks UJH). Hazy orange color. Small size, white head, stays. Oranges, bit metallic, sweet, passion fruit and mango in aroma. Malty, passion fruit, jammy in taste. Feels bit flat. Some carbonation. Weird one. Nikokaoja (302) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - MAR 14, 2017
14. 3. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Fine aroma but (presumably also due low ABV) taste dies of quickly making it drinkable but not very notable. Lightbodied but not really balanced out.
