Pours a pale lager-like yellow with clean white fluffy head and a touch of lacing. High carbonation for the style.
Aroma is pine, orange, straw, apricot and herbs, with a light caramel in the background. Taste is sweet at the start and then there’s a lingering bitterness. Tastes less than its ABV, but improved as it warmed up.
Light, refreshing, just not very exciting. Olorin (53) - Graz, AUSTRIA - FEB 23, 2017
355 ml bottle. Unclear yellow to golden colour, medium head mostly lasting, medium lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is fruity, hoppy, fresh. Aroma is citrus fruit, hops, decent bitterness which gets more dominant in the finish. An OK IPA. Gangstergafje (1225) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
The looks of the beer are fine. The beer is quite a pale yellowish amber. It has some haziness in it. It is a bit to pale, should have been a bit more orange. On top of the beer a nice rough layer of white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, leaving a small rough drape.
The smell isn’t bad. Not the best IPA smell there is though. The hops are quite resinous. It is not very citrus-like. I do clearly smell some stone fruit. This gives the beer a nice sweet aroma, softening the beer. It isn’s as extremely bitter as some IPA’s can be. I wished it was a bit more citrus. Malt aromas are not present.
The taste is the same. It sure has a huge hoppy bitterness, but I mainly taste some resinous and stone fruit flavours. I also taste some malts. It misses the real citrus tones that the description promises. It is good though. A bit mild though, should have been stronger.
The palate is average. Medium body, medium high carbonation. Finish is a bit short and a bit doughy sweet, a bit yeasty and malty. Not that typical dry crispy bitterness from an IPA. Not a bad beer, but I’m no big fan. Not that great. Rex_Remes (250) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2017
(12 oz bottle) AROMA: very nice nose, fresh hops, citrus peel, some clove, a bit of must/mold (but in a good way). APPEARANCE: medium straw yellow, slightly hazy, not much visible carbonation, small head that reduces to a lightly oily film relatively quickly. TASTE: sweet corn, roasted malt, toasted biscuit, some fruit in the middle, cilantro and celery, solid hop finish without being too bold. PALATE: light and fresh in many ways, light/medium body, not too thick but a little creamy, average dry finish with some lingering. OVERALL: very nice nose for a lighter/session IPA, not a great looking beer but decent flavor and body. A good summer time IPA, since you could drink 2 or 3 of these without getting overwhelmed. redders1974 (1575) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Name says it all, it’s an easy drinking IPA. Just don’t expect to be blown away. evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Can from Tesco in Amersham, Bucks. A golden/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, malty, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, citrus, some caramel in there too. An easy drinking SIPA but nothing special in my opinion. Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 25, 2017
Basique, rien de grandiose.
Nez assez aguicheur : du fruit exotique, des agrumes, un fond malté.
En bouche, attaque maltée, douce, on part ensuite sur les agrumes. Finale très vite arrivée et sèche. Peu de longueur.
Simple et efficace. pitch992 (230) - SLOVENIA - JAN 25, 2017
Can from bar 28 in newcastle. Citrus, tropical fruits, some caramel. Gentle, pleasant, highly drinkable. Bitterness a bit too low, otherwise very well rounded brew
