Thin head. The nose is round. Clear colour. Taste a bit simple flowery. Smell is better developed compared to the taste. jmgreenuk (9559) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big grassy hops, nettles and pine needles with some floral notes. The flavour is medium bitter, spicy hop, pepper and some grapefruit citrus on the palate. A very refreshing summer beer. Benzai (15937) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen monthly tasting. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, fruityness, hops, blossom, flowery. Taste lightly malts, hops, blossom, again a bit flowery mainly in the finish and lightly bitter. Soft body and carbonation. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma full of fruity hops, pine and some yeast. Flavor is clean American hops, fruity, pine and some resin. Nice balance and quite smooth. Very decent IPA, but also a bit standard and boring. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013

Thin creamy white head. Lovely citrus aroma. Hazy blond pour. Lovely citrus bitterness. wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
16.9 oz bottle picked up in Boston. Pours a gold orange color with a white head. Nose is citrus, bread, and pepper. Flavor is well balanced hops, malt and citrus. Definitely above-average, but in San Diego I’m surrounded by great IPAs and didn’t think this was a standout.
Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
On tap @ Blind Tiger House. This is a kinda light cloudy deep golden one with a medium sized off-white top that’s sticking to the side’s of the glass. Nice fresh aroma with lots of fruits. It almost smells like candy this. A bit sweet, fruity, some piney hops and some honey melon. Nice! Well flavored with a good amount of grassy hops. It had a kinda oily mouthfeel and a above average carbonation level. It’s quite grassy, but quite. More melony fruitiness, some tropical melon and passion fruit. Really tasty. No doubt about that. Could drink this every day. 12.06.2013
