anstei (2847) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 17, 2018
Tap at the Alehouse, just before the keg jumped. Pours hazy amber. Aroma is strong tropical fruit, quite some citric fruit and grass as well. Still a fruit salad. Body is medium and strongly bitter, with a decent malt backbone. Juicy, oily and chewy still, once you can look behind the bitterness. Good, but a little too low on carbonation. Doesn't feel super fresh either. williamlantz (111) - - MAR 15, 2018

Moderately-to-heavily hazy, bright kumquat-copper-golden with a medium-sized, white head showing moderate retention.
Juicy fruits galore in the nose contrast with a bit more mundane, leafy, vegetal, pine/grapefruit-oriented hop notes. But the brighter, lighter, more playful notes win out, with a light supporting cast of biscuit/cracker malt and a touch of bubble gum and melon-like yeast. Clean and no alcohol.
Juicy mango, peach and papaya certainly provide plenty of tropical goodness. The beer shows a medium body with a round, soft, malt and wheat-like texture with engaging carbonation. Good attenuation, lots of lingering juicy fruit and minimal pine/resin. Some light bitterness/acidity nips at the palate, on the finish, with a touch more maltiness lingering than I'd prefer, but this is still a very wonderfully-done NE IPA.
Tap @ Panema Kallio. Pours hazy golden coloured with an thick white head. Aroma has lots of fruits, lychee, pineapples, mango with zesty notes. Tropical fruits in every sip. Grapefruit, grapes, some pine. so easy to drink! JNyberg (15) - - FEB 22, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2018 Grumlig, orangefärfad med vitt skum. Frisk smak. Toner av citrus och en tydlig grapefruktbeska i eftersmaken.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Den IPA från Sverige som enligt min smak framkallar bredast leende. Fruktig, mustig, humlig, ett kärlekshantverk. koleminer20 (4371) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2018
From notes. Enjoyed at the company Cheese Party in Graz, Austria on January 11. 330 mL bottle. The pour is a nice darker golden orange with a thick white head that falls down quickly with a pretty solid lacing behind it. The aroma is nice. There is a strong bitter hop to this with a lightly tropical fruit and a little bit of bitterness that comes through on the finish. This is surprisingly complex. The flavor is a little worse. There is a hint of the bitter hops coming through, but it comes off a little oily with a light leafiness and a hint of malt coming through. There is a bit of oat on the finish that doesn’t really work for me. The mouth feel is a heavier medium body with a creamy carbonation and a lingeringly bitter and fruity malt to this. It’s not overly great, but I like it. 7 4 6 4 14 rosenbergh (12090) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2018
330 ml bottle. BB 20/06/18. From boxbeers.dk.andyf163 (25) - - JAN 26, 2018
Hazy orange color with a small white head.
Fresh fruity hops, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, mild bitterness, sweetness and some pine needles in the aroma.
The flavor is piney and fruity hops, mild herbal notes, moderate bitterness, juiciness and balancing maltiness.
Pretty damn balanced and tasty one.
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 Great hazy hazy beer - great example of what a Ne Style should be like! Bottled but can imagine it would be even better on tap! pentaz (1335) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2018
Tap @ Dispensary. Pours hazy/murky orange with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is fruity with citrus, peach, papaya, grapefruit, caramel and oats. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is medium, texture is mild creamy, carbonation is soft. Finishes fairly dry and very hoppy
