I tell you what, I almost didnt purchase this because it was rated an 88 on here. Good thing I bought it! I knew from the moment I opened it and my nose was greeted by grapefruit and citrus Id enjoy it. Its a great IPA. Pours a honey gold color, a finger of white tiny bubbly head. As I drink it, it has great lacing. The nose is lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange, some sweet bready malts, and pine needle. Its well balanced, not a whole lot of bitterness on the toungue, and the sweetness of the malts really comes through here. The description says full-bodied, but Id say its medium bodied. High drinkability. A well crafted IPA. As far as a standard IPA goes, this makes my top 10 for sure.

Citrus. Mango-pineappleish tropical fruit up front. Strong grapefruit at the end. Cereal. Nice all around IPA, but indistinguishable from any other down the fairway IPA.

Bottle from Albert Heijn supermarket. Pours yellow golden, clear, filtered. Bubbly white head. Low carbonation. Nose is floral and green hops. Aroma mostly green hops, not much malt in it. Flavor is dominant bitter, from start to after the finish. Its a bitter blond but not really an IPA imho.

20170107 Home: 35.5 cl bottle: Beer pour slightly cloudy with a yellow color. A nice white good head, which stay on the beer. Arome is light sweet with a goos fruity-hop bitter from somewhat grapefruit and peach. Also liight malty and somewhat grassy. The taste is malty and start slight sweet, but than a fruity hop bitterness is coming up. Grapefruit, peach and somewhat tropical fruit. The body is for this beer good (>medium). The beer ends bitter-dry. Good balance.

Tutto sommato una buona IPA, sembra meno commerciale grazie alla gasatura persistente ma ha troppe note di "rosmarino" che fanno da contorno al gusto del luppolo.. Amarezza attenuata; una delle meno peggio che si trovano allEsselunga!

LazyPyro (737) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a thick frothy off-white head. Aroma: hoppy, citrus, pine, malt. Taste: as the aroma, citrus and pine and a bit of malt, bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but could be a lot better, fairly mild in flavour compared to most American IPAs.

Vells (1674) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 28, 2016
Too light kick for my IPA standards, but as refreshing beer works awesome. Decent maltiness, fresh grapefruit, peachy hops, light pine fresh grass. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness Like it
