WVHouseofBeer (1058) - West Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2017
Basically a prototypical American IPA and a classic. Aromas bursting with grapefruit, citrus, apricot, other fruit and some pine/grass. The bitterness is balanced nicely with the caramel malt and provides for a smooth finish, yet the hops always make their presence known. Pours a beautiful burnt-orange color with a frothy white head.

GoddamnNoise (123) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - APR 1, 2017
355 ml. bottle @ Home. Aroma: quite intense aromas of mango, grapefruit, citrus, pine, resin, tangerine. Toasted malts overtones appeared as the beer got warmed. Appearance: golden light amber color with slightly off-white head. Above average head thickness. Creamy head made of small-sized bubbles. Excellent retention, very much above average. Clear. Low-to-medium Brussels lacing. Taste: low-to-medium sweetness, medium-high bitterness, no sourness. Sweet at first, turning to bitterness toward the finish. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, resin, tropical fruits, mango, citrus. Very well balanced. Its bitterness is higher than in the "Easy Jack" IPA from the same brewery but the bitterness seems to be lower here thanks to the good balance with the malt sweetness. Palate: medium body, watery-to-oily texture, low-to-medium carbonation, very lingering dry and quite bitter finish of pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus. Alcohol is very well hidden under the hops flavors. Overall: excellent appearance.Good aromas and flavors of pine, resin, tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, grapefruit. Very well balanced. Refreshing. Very good IPA.

wxman (1805) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Pours a clear deep golden color with a decent white head that produces lace. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is sweet pale and caramel malt, bread dough and a fairly medley of sweet citrus and fresh pine needles. Hop bitterness is quite assertive, yet well balanced with the sweet malt. Pretty damned good.

Vintherbottom (6) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2017 does not count
Im pretty sure they mean well. Its just not enough, cause its a beer to firmly based on citrus in whatever form. Hops are gone, alas.
