Can at the Black Friar, London. Light gold with a filmy white head and plentiful visible carbonation. Light aroma of orange peel and lemonade. While the smell may be underwhelming, the taste is full, bittersweet and gorgeous. Lots of hop to give it character but without upsetting the gentle balance. Carbonation is pretty extreme but it’s still got a lovely refreshing mouthfeel. Nice and drinkable but not the most memorable beer. joergen (28148) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2017

Draught at Kungstorgets Brygghus on April 21, 2017.Itzjerm (2869) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2017
Clear golden color, white head with lacing. Hoppy, citrus, slight cheese scent. Hoppy, mineral taste. Soapy, mineral aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, rather fizzy, medium low bitterness.
Something with that soap like hop character I’m not very fond of.
Lots of carbonation. but still watery on the taste. For abv still nice. Nice lasting head. Aroma very tropical and enjoyable. No bitterness. Mouthfeel only drawback. Very citrus. a little earthy low abv dank. NICE!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a medium gold color topped by a moderate sized frothy white head. Fresh citrus hop aroma has notes of lemon/lime. First sip yields more citrus hops and a decent toasted malt backbone. Malt seems to fade in middle, though flavor is still quite good. Light to medium bodied. Hops are still there in finish, though a bit subdued. Overall, a very good Session IPA that offers immense drinkability with very good balance and flavor. UXO (1896) - CANADA - APR 27, 2017
Appearance: crystal clear pale gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: bright citrus, pale malt, pine, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body tending slightly thin, moderate to soft carbonation, off-dry short duration bitter slightly sharp finish. (3/5)
Initially this seems like it’s going to be awesome: there’s lots of bright citrus hops on the pour, and the lush white head provides a great contrast to the brilliant gold body. Then - well, it doesn’t fall apart, as such, but it gets less awesome. Those bright hops fade almost immediately, the lovely head flattens to a cap and then a skim, and the carbonation falls away. More distressingly, the brew starts to feel slightly thin in the body, and finishes with a hint of sharpness. In short, it falls into the trap that so many Session IPAs seem unable to avoid: of having too light a malt bill and too thin a body to support the hop flavours. Now, that being said, it’s not my intention to be overly harsh with this - it’s a perfectly serviceable light ale, and would be perfectly fine to have with lunch on a sunny patio. It’s just not the lovely hop bomb it starts off smelling like. (14/20)

Can from a trip to Vermont. A very slight hazed golden colour with a warm cap, average retention and good sticky lacing. Lots of citrus in the nose with grapefruits, but mostly oranges. The taste shows the same. Mild dryness. Quite a nice easy-drinking session IPA. kustie (1189) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 16, 2017
