foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - DEC 1, 2012
Massive aroma or grapefruit and even peaches. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow in the glass. Long finish of hops, you could almost be munching on them raw. Delicious.

Fullpintofbeer (223) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
From bottle. Small head, light golden colour, clear. Light aroma of hops: grapefruit peel, lemon grass, bit of berries. Light bitter taste, light body, long finish, soft carbonation. Generally light, refreshing and average hoppiness. Something between Pils + and an APA, but definitely not an AIPA. Give more power to it!

PowY (335) - AUSTRIA - NOV 23, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw-yellow with a white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy - lemon - and hints of straw. Medium body with a low to lively carbonation a light sweetness and a medium bitterness. The flavor is hoppy-fruity with fresh tropical fruits, lemon, orange, passion fruit with a crisp hoppy finish.

Coś się tu zepsuło. Piwo jasne jak słoma, zapach ledwo wyczuwlany, smak jakiś taki wyblakły, do IPA mu daleko. On tap WEŹŻE KRAFTA.

Villyzzz (167) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with medium sized white head. Aroma is spicy with citrus and pine. Taste is citrus and hops. Too much carbonation for my taste.

herrklemann (124) - AUSTRIA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a hazy straw gold liquid with a frothy white head. Aroma of grass, bread, hay, pine, resin, with citrus notes lingering all over the others, strong lemon zest. Taste starts out medium sweet and turns into a lingering bitterness. Full, creamy body with lively carbonation and a lingering, syrupy bitter finish.
At last, an IPA thats a bit different. With all its grass and hay notes, it reminded me of a bitter, full bodied lager. Nicely balanced with citrus fruits from the hops and a toasty malt body.

ianwelby (1153) - SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Hazy amber beer, creamy white head. Orange peel aroma, some hop. Orange, grapefruit, grassy citrus, hop, lasting bitter aftertaste. Crisp and refreshing but dangerous at the strength.
