A medium IPA. Not too much IPA in it though. Hop is very vague. Smell too. Also not very bitter compared to most IPAs. Malt profile is missing a little power.

visionthing (4957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 31, 2015
50cl bottle at Viking XPRS in Finnish waters. Pours hazy golden brown with off-white head. Fairly fruity and somewhat malty with notes of canned peaches, hints of citrus, grass and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with with a certain bitterness. Feels a bit messy, not to interesting, but still fairly drinkable.

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Bit hazy dull amber color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Looks nice. Bit metallic, sweet, malty, papery and cereals in aroma. Sourish, malty, grains, some spicy hops, sweetish in taste. Sharp acidic hops with mashy malts in aftertaste. Crisp palate. Soft bitterness. Messy brew. Not impressing me much.

mjs (6739) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE Aug 2015, at Viking XPRS, 20150926) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had herbalness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were herbalness, fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A too herbal brew for my taste. Not bad.

TorbenJensen (1472) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Very nice creamy foam rises by pouring of the IPA. Faint aroma notes of grass and mint rises in the air, and the expectation of a delicate experience increases proportionally. The taste is slightly sweet in the beginning but taken over quickly by a great hoppy bitterness. Palate constitutes tasting notes of freshly grass, mint and fruity bittersweet taste that might be immature peach. Citrus blends lively in the taste and before the long, slightly bitter finale comes the sweetness a little back in the mouth as a light water and sweet melon. The finish is dry.
