CanCrusher (1031) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle 0,50 L. Golden-yellow, slightly hazy colour with chick, white, fully lasting head. Pine and resin aroma dominates. There are also grapefruit and lemon notes with some honey in the background. Taste is moderate to heavy bitter with a sweet touch at the start. Medium to full body, with dry watery texture and soft carbonation.

ManVsBeer (9212) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Only slightly clouded, it is golden with a thick frothy head. The citrus, especially lemon and grapefruit are dominant in both the flavour and aroma.

Pours a clear yellow, nice foam, nice hoppy citrus aroma. Body could have been a bitter more full but otherwise a very refreshing beer.

kerenmk (4576) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle sample after the Stone Vertical Epic tasting at Mastikim. Thanks avrashi. Pours light and hazy golden with white wave. Malty and hoppy at once - lots of pine in the nose - fun. Fresh bitterness, stingy and hoppy. Light body, fizzy, hoppy pine finish.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2013
500ml bottle, shared with Caterwaul. Mildly hazy whitish - yellow golden color. Good thin white head, leaves decent lace. Medium body. Very smooth, light carbonation. Finish is more on the dry, clean side. I was very skeptical about this going in, because most English "IPAs" I try turn to to be disappointing to me. But this is actually really impressive, in the way that lighter American "session" IPAs try to be. There is a satisfying floral hop flavor in here that dominates, with some light citrus and lighter pine notes. Hint of lemon. Balanced with a decent bready, lightly toasty malt profile. Nice lightly bitter zesty taste, light sweetness. Just a solid, lighter yet flavorful IPA, English or not.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle sample. Slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. Huge fruity nose - tropical, citrus and some pines. Clean malt flavor with rich hop flavors of NZ hops and earth and med-hi bitterness. Long hoppy finish, medium body and very good.

Kita (2022) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head, moderate lacing and average visible carbonation. Aroma of light caramel, spicy hops and fruits, amongst strawberry and lemon prevail, while lychee and elderflower also noticed. Taste starts with spicy malt, followed fresh fruity and finished astringent. Aftertaste is long hoppy with spicy note in the end. Full body, thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. IPA rocks...

blipp (8643) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Cask at Rattle with Npodendorf. Pours clear gold with a thin head. Flowery hops, lighter fruity notes, and a light malty sweetness. Pretty good.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Clean golden color, medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma of tropical fruits and citruses with notes of pine. Crispy and hoppy taste with a lot of citrus and some herbs, long bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and nicely balanced IPA.
