Tap. A fairly mild aroma with hints of citrus. The taste didnt live up to the description. The hops were weak and and not as prominent as I hoped. There wasnt much malt backbone either. It was drinkable but unremarkable.

rand (1680) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle 355 ml / Amstein - St-Lgier (CH). Golden amber beer with a short white head and floats. Malted aromas, caramel, tropical and citrusy fruity, peach-apricot. The taste is similar, perfumed with fruity and grassy hop with pine and coated with caramel. Average bitterness and average sweetness, Quite drinkable.

76AD (2) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 12, 2017 does not count
Not bad, just not a great IPA. Not as hoppy as I would have liked. Quite fizzy/foamy, not a great aroma to it and didnt improve at all as it warmed up. Drinkable but not hugely enjoyable compared to what else is available at the price I paid (2.65). 6.5% so getting up there. I need more flavour in my IPAs so I wouldnt buy this again - well maybe if it was on special at half price and there werent any other IPAs to choose from. Bought in France May 2017, had a dec 2017 best by date.

pivnizub (10524) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - APR 23, 2017
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, small - but stable - white head; mild to moderate sweet-bitter nose of citric and herbal hops, supported by some secret pale malt with a tinge of toasted malt; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and soft; lingering and drier herbal-piney finish, again balanced by some malt. Not great, but surely good...

Phagelund (170) - DENMARK - APR 23, 2017

ChadPoole (463) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
Pour Orange golf with an off white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit and peaches. A good sweet and bitter balanced flavour. Decent but nothing special.

Pours a golden colour. Taste is hoppy with some tropical fruit. Quite oily on the palate

Westy1130 (76) - New York, USA - APR 8, 2017
One of the few decent IPAs you can find almost anywhere here on the east coast. Nice citrus aroma of grapefruit, lemon and orange zest. Hoppy without being overly bitter. Not quite West Coast Style but a decent attempt.

Decent IPA. Get a lot of citrus in the flavor and aroma but not much else.
