beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Pours a pale yellow color with very little head. Very slight hop and citrus aromas. A modest amount of hop flavor with subtle citrus hints as well. Light body for an ipa and not overly bitter. Smooth though and refreshing.

camay1997 (53) - 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.

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 (2702) - 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,

AGALE (3) - Frackville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Gold/pale color, light to medium body, thin feel, average carbonation. Aroma-some bread, citrus and herbal notes. Thin texture, fizzy(light carbonation). Piney citrus taste,light bitter hop finish. Overall good Ale!

3.2
TBone (17699) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Bottle 355ml (The Oak Barrel, HEL). Golden, medium-sized white fluffy head, lace. Aroma has citrus and fruits. Medium-bodied. Citrus, piney-resiny hoppyness. Lingering bitterness. Clean and clinic.

3.3
Towey1989 (2948) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Keg at Brewski, Chorlton. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, some bready malts and slight floral hops. Taste of lemon, some orange, a hint of pine, slight bready malts and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, crisp and clean, lemony hop bitterness in the finish. Quite bland and boring for an IPA, but saying that, it’s a classic IPA. Crisp and clean but overall uninspiring.

leduardol (147) - - JUN 27, 2017
De coloração ouro, translúcida com ligeira nebulosidade, com espuma média de baixa duração, branca e que deixa marcas no copo branca. Diferente do esperado aromas de malte, biscoito e doce. Lúpulo do dry-hopping quase inexistente com um muito sutil cítrico. Corpo médio-baixo, suave e fulgaz, ligeira e refrescante, com aftartaste amargo, resinoso e seco de media persistência. Está mais para uma Session IPA maltado e com Lúpulos apagados só florescendo no amargor final. Resinoso final característico dos lupulos americanos. Alta drinkability, mas que precisa migrar de categoria. Garrafa de 355ml - Macae, Brasil - Jun/2017 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kingstoni (2120) - FINLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Sugary aroma of floral hops. Sweet and medium bitter taste. Medium body. A bit oily feel.

Dervock (1379) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2017
Bottle- pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, marmalade and bread. Taste is mild citrus and a bit of funk in the finish.
