Nikokaoja (119) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - FEB 16, 2017
16. 2. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled, pre T2. Bery fruity aroma and heavily hopped up taste, which is not to long lasting. Interesting use of hops which prevail in mouthful dominance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FinnIckler (231) - GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle from savereur-biere.com. No bottling date, Im guessing September - October 2016. Pours light yellow. Nose is citrus, lemon grass, floral, bubblegum, melon, faint apple. Palate has lost some of its edge, but still a decent balance of fruity apricot, apple, grapefruit and bitterness. Good, have to drink this fresh some day.

Very Citrus-Fruity; zesty, tangy; oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, peel. Malty backbone; sweet malts, caramel, toffee. Massively hoppy and citrus-fruity throughout. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Enjoyed this a lot. Terrific IPA! (2009-12)

Godfather50 (228) - SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle with Rory. Punches at the IPA heavyweight. Lovely hop aroma, bursts with flavour, sticky toffee, intense bitterness. Trifle soaked in alcohol. Madeira wine. Keeps working the tastebuds with different hop notes of summer hay, marujauna, lychee. Malty sweet, sugar and spice. Nice

LazyPyro (788) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a lot of sediment floating around, nice creamy smooth white head. Aroma: tropical and citrus fruit, floral, slight dank note too. Taste: bitter, citrus and tropical fruit, pine, bready malt, pithy hop bitterness, lingering finish. Medium body and carbonation. Good but not one of my favourites in this style.

Clear yellow pour with a white head. Nicely balanced IPA with tropical fruit, floral hops, bready malt, moderate bitterness... Decent all round.

JorgeLee (1941) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle, brewery website. Light bright clear golden colour, white foam. Light malt bill, quite neutral especially given abv, maybe some biscuit. Lots of hops, vaguely tropical citrus flavours. Somehow didnt really excite me with the hop profile - I seem to prefer a more old school pine resin hop profile in my IPAs.

minihame2 (552) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Clear, pale yellow colour, creamy white head. Light aroma, some hops and citrus. Bitter taste and a long aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Decent but nothing out of the ordinary.
