Light and low alcohol, but with a citrus potency that makes it memorable. Tried at het Uiltje with Rene in 2015. Martinus (4737) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014

My second ’session IPA’ and effectively labelled as such. Off-white, initially thick but slowly receding, yet stable, sticky head over a deep orange blonde beer, cloudy with pale, tiny yeast particles floating around here and there, milky and completely shrouded with deposit. Aroma of citrussy ’green’ hops, impressions of grapefruit peel, orange, white bread, coriander, tonic water, hemp, dry white wine, leather, peaches, gooseberries, starfruit, minerals, white pepper, tobacco. Taste reveals a vivid, tingling fruitiness and ’citrusness’, utterly refreshing, with a sharpish, minerally carbonation adding to the refreshment; then a light, elegant caramelly maltiness kicks in along with peppery yeasty spiciness and drying coriander, leading to a long, complex, dry, thirst-quenching hop bitter finish, citrussy, grassy and spicy and even a bit ’biting’; mouthfeel surprisingly full for a beer of only 3,4% ABV. A totally satisfying, light and thirst-quenching summer session beer for hopheads. Love it, even a bit more than the Berghoeve Khoppig I tasted right before this. I’m beginning to love this particular style in much the same way I love ’ordinary’ and double IPAs. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
Misty golden body and Instable frothy head. Delicious sweet fresh floral hops, flower garden and peachy compote. Amazing full aroma and lovely hops! Coriander is supposedly in here, but it smells more like cilantro than seeds! Great body, despite the low abv, with a more than decent mouth feel. Well developed but not too dry. Amazingly well crafted, an expect job done here on both recipe and brewing! (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden) tricksta_p (5360) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
Aroma of fruits, citrus, floral, soap, grass, hops. Flavour is fruity and grassy with a potent bitter finish. A bit light body, but not distractingly so. Tasty, refreshing Session IPA.

Bottle at home in London - bought at Kris Wines. Pours lightly hazy, deep gold with a large, lasting frothy white head. Nice citrusy hops in the nose, some pine needles, orange rind, wood, toasted grass. The flavor is lightly with toasty pale malts, slight crackery grains, more pine needles, dry and pithy orange rind, hints of hop resin. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with further piney and toasted grassy hops, restrained bitterness, more toasted pale malt, hints of grapefruit, more orange rind. Pretty clean and direct. Certainly a bit over-carbonated, but as it calms down the beer comes out of its shell a bit. mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle. Body pours in hazy cloudy orange color with high creamy white head. Aroma has tropical fruit character with massive earthy hoppines on the nose as well. I’d say it is little bit spicy too. The taste follows the aroma pretty well, at first you get high earthy bitterness with light to medium fruity sweet support, peaches, pineapple, light vanilla with earthy bitterness in the after taste. Little bit too bitter for my taste. Body is full, high carbonation. Bryanvdv (523) - - JUL 18, 2014
Honing troebel bier vol gist. Schuim trekt snel weg. Aroma is fruitig, hop, mango, zoet. Smaak is fris, licht bitter. Body is wat waterig evengoed erg mooi bier met slechts 3,4% kermis (14999) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Deanso. Pours hazy dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, soap and grassy hops. Flavor is light heavy bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A decent low ABV hop fest. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a large foamy. Aroma is very strong with floral hops, rich herbal notes, mild graininess and some sweet fruitiness. Very intriguing. Flavour of rich floral bitterness, weed, orange, some biscuit and herbs. Light bodied and a bit foamy mouthfeel. Surprisingly rich, bitter and juicy finish. Very enjoyable. Hard to believe this is only 3,4% ABV. Well done.
