Draught at Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). A great example of the West Coast style, which a high drinkability. The ladies loved it, and that is high praise indeed. KnutAlbert (6824) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2011
On tap at Olympen, Oslo. Hazy amber. Strong malty base. Herbs, mint. Fruity.
The hops are in control, pushing the maltiness to the back. Very crisp finish.

Tap at CP&K. It pours hazy light orange, with a very thin off-white head and low fizzy carbonation. The nose is orange, mango, pineapple and resin. The taste is tangy orange, mango, grass, pine and resin, with a long tangy-bitter dry finish. Medium bodied and oily mouth-feel. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Light golden yellow with a dense creamy white head. Lovely large soap bubbles on top, sticky lacing clinging to everywhere. When I got the glass I could smell it from down on the table top. When I got it up close though, it wasn’t as intense as I thought it would be. It’s got a gorgeous tropical fruity aroma with apricots, peach, grapefruit, watermelon. Some caramel. A tiny bit dusty. It also kinda smells chalky or milky in a way. All the fruitiness does turn it a tiny bit perfumy, but it’s still a fantastic aroma. Flavourwise, it’s surprisingly mellow. I thought this would be pretty damn bitter. Moderat bitterness in the finish, which is a little bit thin. Some butterscotch. A bit of a letdown after the aroma. Carbonation is sparse, body is light to medium. It feels a bit dead and flat, like the wierd chalky like tap water in Denmark and England. it’s a bit of a wierd one. Incredible aroma, but the flavour lets it down. It feels a bit muddy. Drinks a bit like a peach milkshake would have. Enjoyable, but with room for improvement.
Had this beer at Alvinne Craft Beer Festival 2011. Very bright color. Smell and taste a little too sweet for an IPA. Smell almost fruity. Brandman (2967) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Draught at Brasserie 4:20. Orange body, white head. Fruity clear aroma. Hops have some unpleasant aroma, same that in Stone’s beers. Dark hops maybe? Piney. Nice bitterness, some sweetness to support hops. For today’s standard IPAs this is nicely on low hopped, not overhopped, side which helps the beer itself come out very well.

Angenehmer Hopfengeschmack, der nur wenig trocken und gelungen weich ist. Fruchtig, blumig, dezent süß. Ausgewogen, sp auch süffig. Zum Ende etwas bitterer, insgesamt aber schwach. Herbes, fruchtiges Finish. Leicht trinkbares und erfrischendes Bier. 12/12/11/12//12
