Towey1989 (3437) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2017
Keg at Beerdock Leek. A clear golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, slight peach, subtle pale malts, marujuana and some grassy hops. Taste of grapefruit, a little peach, a hint of biscuity malts and some grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A tasty pale but with a lot of ‘grassy’ hops.

SinH4 (6568) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2017
Tap. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is farty hops, also some juicy peach and apricots. Taste is peach, apricot, mango, some farty flavours again. Medium carbonation. Not bad, but a bit farty.

rumore (869) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 30, 2017
From 33cl bottle. Pours amber with limited white foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity, very pleasant. Body is medium-light with fairly low carbonation. Taste has low sweetness and some bitterness, not intense. In general, taste is much weaker than aroma. Somehow disappointing, but after all it’s a session IPA... Finish is short enough.

September 27, 2015 - At The Hack & Hop - keg draught. Clear gold with a thick plug of white lasting creamy head. Catty and pungent yet sweet aroma - light alcohol and fruity; it’s mostly about the bitterness (nice!). Taste - yeah! - catnip and pungency for days - no alcohol or sweetness, only enough malt body to frame the hops - me like; fully attenuated, grassy and pungent! Average to light body, lively mouthfeel, long dry coating finish - great beer and hell yeah I will drink this again.

Grumbo (4264) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Tap at the Friends of Ham, Leeds. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of hop, citrus and light tropical fruit. Light sweetness and quite heavy bitterness. Light body and slight oily texture, carbonation is average. Good flavour for a session level IPA.

kermis (14963) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle at The Beer Cap, Bangkok. Clear golden amber with a huge bubbly white head. Aroma of grapefruit, weedy and light fruity hops. Flavour is light sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Light bodied with high carbonation.

Mr_Pink_152 (5768) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
On tap at the Queens Head, Kings Cross. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma tropical fruit taste starts with mid sweet fruit, moving to a balanced bitter sweet finish. Medium body. Very refreshing on a hot day.

DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Modest head disappearing quickly. Lots of carbonation. Boring gold body. Aroma is a mix of hops and pine-sol, which reminds me, really gotta mop my floor when I get home. Flavour is an odd mix of cigarette ash and hops, some lemon on the finish. Crisp on the mouth though. If you’d ask me to session an IPA it wouldn’t be this one.
