A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Gusgus (235) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
BB 31.01.14. Slightly hazy, very pale yellow color with medium, white head that soon drops to a thin crescent. Slightly hazy (wheat?) initially very British malt and stone fruits aroma that after a while reveals a more citrusy (lemon, orange) character with some herbal notes. Creamy, slightly minerally flavor with stone fruits and finally a quite full palate with a dry, bitter finish. Nice and sessionable IPA with a British character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a short, fluffy head. Nose is very citrusy, lychee, grapefruit and lemon. Taste is hop loaded; same citrusy flavours with no malty backbone. Would prefer to have a thicker malt profile to balance out the hops. Dry, bitter after taste, very english styled IPA. Sessionable but a little bland.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a straw golden with bubbly white head. Aromas of citrus, some bread and sweet honey. Taste is really easy drinking, with citrus hops and sweet honey at the end. Dangerously easy to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (2222) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 8, 2013
09/06/2013 Birrifugio Trastevere (tap). Dorata, viva, limpida, schiuma discreta di media persistenza. Al naso sentori di malto, biscotto, luppolo, note agrumate (scorza di limone) e fruttate (soprattutto pesca). In bocca equilibrata, attacco dolciastro, finale luppolato abbastanza secco, non aggressivo. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Non freschissima forse, ma apprezzabile.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2013
A very drinkable, and light, IPA. Color is yellow, mouthfeel is well carbonated. Aroma is citrus-based and aftertaste is bitter. Well-made, just not exciting.

HipHopOpotamus (233) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 The beer at first didnt make a great impression on me. But as i kept sipping more and more it grew on me. It is enjoyable beer. However it is pricey to buy at LCBO in Ontario, Canada. It cost $5 for a 500 ml bottle. I purchased a few and enjoyed them but will not continue to buy more at high prices like that for a beer that is good, but not amazing.

aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2013
Very citrusy aroma. Very pale colour. I would describe this as a west coast ipa. A good west coast ipa but not mind blowing.

Really different tasting IPA. Odd to say, but it really is light and fluffy tasting. Heavy citrus smell and taste. Dry bitter after taste. Worth trying for a change of pace.
