beer_rookie (635) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle purchased in Birmingham. Thanks for the memories!

Tough bottle cap to get off.

Pours a clear golden color. Two fingers thick white head. Good retention, great lacing.

Aroma is lightly citrusy. Light lemon, light orange peel. Floral hops. Malts are not overwhelmed by hops. Meh.

Taste is lightly citrusy. Light lemon, orange peel. Medium bitterness. Hops overpower malts in the taste.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Pretty dry, medium bitterness.

Overall, it's okay. It's a mild IPA, not a lot of flavor. I think it's sort of boring. I don't think I would recommend it, and I wouldn't buy it again.

I bought this bottle of beer at the interspar, in the south of Verona. I drank it the last Sunday at home in Lausanne. I was not impressed by this IPA, even though, it is a drinkable one. In my opinion, it is a bit watery and more aromas or different hops could be welcome. The color is yellow/orange and a bit troubled, white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is bitter, citrus, bitterness but that's strong than usual, malt hidden by the hop, not bad.

Gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt pilsner, mout koper. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, pilsner. Veredelde pils.

camay1997 (73) - patton, California, USA - AUG 21, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 Thick white head on top of a hazy golden body. Not as aromatic as anticipated. Hints of pine, no more. Smooth and refreshing, it doesn't assault the palette with a hop aftertaste. I can hardly tell I'm drinking an IPA. very good, but not exceptional.

Bottle. Creamy feel. No outstanding floral or other flavors. Nice slightly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2017
8/VIII/17 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ Help-Me-Get-to-10K-In-Time-Tasting 1 - BB: 5/VIII/17 or V/8/17, not entirely sure (2017-1182) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the beer!

Clear orange beer, small creamy white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very soapy smell, floral, bit chemical, what is this? MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very soapy flavours, soft bitterness, floral, pretty chemical, fruity touch in the back. Aftertaste: unpleasant bitterness, very harsh, bit resinous, some overripe fruits. Not very nice, this one. On from the looks of the other ratings, it seems it’s not just the age on the bottle...

bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2017
Rating #2700 - 2016.08.05 - Draught at IPYAYDAY at @ntnl17. Clear amber pour with little head to speak of, an agressive pour yielded no more than a weak fizz on the top of this gem. Aroma is mild citrus (grapefruit) with a spicy note in the generous hop overtones. Taste is thoroughly dry, decent bitterness, with a lingering citrusy sweetness and a faint hint of malt. Average,
