FatPhil (14897) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2016
330ml bottle (Sip, Tallinn)
Caramelly malts and pungent hops aroma, a touch of a sour hint too, a bit rough. Hazy to murky amber, depending on the pour. Crazy huge head, hard to pour. Murkier pour is very soapy, just like the amber, even has that sour harshness. Hazy pour is less messy, but that was less than half the bottle. Full palate, would be sweet and slick, but the carbonation is high. Finish is bitter. Bit of a fuckup of an IPA, to be honest, theyre trying too hard for bigger bolder flavours before theyve mastered nice flavours.

kermis (12041) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle shared, bad gusher alert! Very hazy amber with a big of white head. Aroma of spicy hops, yeast, light fruit, caramel and malt. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Points down overall for loosing half the bottle before even drinking it. [03-09-2016]

deanso (9776) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
33cl bottle from the Delft beer festival. GUSHER!!!!! Medium creamy white head. Cloudy amber pour. Nice bitterness but marked down due to the gushing. I prefer drinking beer to cleaning the mess up afterwards

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2016
Ambar de abundante espuma. Deja película. Rico aroma lupulado y frutal, naranja, tropicales. En boca es una IPA conseguida, equilibrada, de base maltead y predominio frutal lupulado. Amargor moderado, intenso al final. Muy agradable. De largo la mejor de la casa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur ambre, mousse onctueuse, amertume assez prononce. Got assez ax sur la peau dorange amre. Cest assez lourd boire.

bbertels (436) - NORWAY - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle bought in Tavira. Full head, whiteish. Good carbonation. Some hops in the aroma. A pleasant surprise tastewise: bitter hops with some complexity, malty warmness. It lasts. Nice!
