Pours a clear gold with a white foam head. The aroma is fairly malty, with a great pine and slightly citrusy hop aroma. The flavor has mild hops up front with a maltier middle and clean, balanced finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poor thin and amber. Provides and immediate hop bite on the front of the palate that never truly dissipates. Any maltiness that might appear is soon whisked away. Leads to a sharp aftertaste. A beer for drinking after one might have had a few.

Pyrmir (6199) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2017
On tap at DomCraft. Copper color with whiteish head. Aroma and taste are light herbal, light caramel, grass, light fruit, flowers with a super smooth and super balanced general impression.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 Draft at Macs. Clear copper/gold pour with beige foam. Lots of caramel bready cereal malts. Hops play second fiddle. Tangelo and pretzel dough. Piny citrus zest vs stale Cheerios. Not working for me.

Bottle from ASDA, Washington. Golden coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet orange and tropical fruit flavour followed by pine, earthy notes, toffee and malt on the warming fruity finish. Excellent!

Im not a big fan of caramel so the aroma was not that good, the appearance was not clear and i would like a little bit of more biterness at the end but it was a good option, refreshing and well balanced.

½ Pint Cask split by two with SinH4 @ Waterloo Tap. Happy B-Day! Golden, creamy white. Nose is doughy grain, old cereal, soap, smells like an old IPA. Taste is weak old grainy sugar, mellow IPA, herbal, hay,… Stale grain bodied. Man this is weak, weak I say.

SinH4 (6121) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017
Tap. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is old hops, toasted malts. Taste is piney, old hops, resinous, toasted malts, toffee. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Not good.

Bottle from Asda. Distinctly average. Did someone else just say that? Rainwater barrel, with some orange zest soap. Wishy and indeed washy.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2017 Golden, simple, not too hoppy or zesty. easy drinking IPA but nothing groundbreaking9

BrewWhatIWant (277) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2017
Pours slightly red with a small white head. Aroma is lightly herbal. Taste is little sweet, little bitter with notes of caramel, a little malt, a crisp lager like finish and a little hop bitterness with little character. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. An Intro IPA if ever I've had one. I went on vacation to Maine and Massachusetts and kept seeing this beer alongside the big guys. That should have been the hint I needed. I gave it a try and was disappointed.
