bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle at home, thanks to Kelly. Hazy amber with an off white head. Complex hop profile with delicious resinous pineapple fruitiness. Full body with ample alcohol but so so drinkable. Stunning.

Erasmus_ro (3106) - Alabama, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light orange with a large, clean white head. Aroma is exotic fruits, passion fruit, kiwi fruit, some pine. Taste is dry and bitter. Pine, exotics again: Kiwi fruit and passion fruit, the latter coming in strongly. Some lime and orange there as well. Finishes with a strong flavor of gooseberries and gooseberry leaves. Like crashing right out of a fruit farm somewhere at the equator to a Finnish summer house garden. Or I suppose in this case an English one. Palate is quite full and somewhat carbonated.

CanCrusher (1097) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Light brown - yellow, hazy cloudy colour with creamy white head. Very hoppy aroma: grapefruit, mango, elderberries and little caramel. Fruity aroma goes hand in hand with hoppy bitterness. Moderate bitter taste turns into heavy bitter aftertaste. This beer is very well balanced and alcohol is hidden, too.

Kita (2193) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and lively bubbles. Aroma of spicy hops, strawberry, lychee and other tropical fruits. Taste starts sweet biscuity, followed by refreshing hoppy and fruity. Mouthfeel is astringent, alcohol is well hidden, while aftertaste is long and strong bitter. Full body, thick texture and moderate carbonation in palate. Excellent...

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2013
Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Great fruit, grapefruit hop aroma bursting out of the glass. Fresh tropical fruit flavour. Very refreshing tasty brew. Could drink this all day.

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
One of the finest around! Darker side of golden with creamy white head. Beautiful aroma, fairly bold with a great mixture of tropical fruits (pineapple, grapefruit, mango) with some tangerine, grass and pine highlights. Good full body and above average carbonation. Good clean, but wholesome malt backbone leads to a great bustling fruit hop character and well balance bitterness.
