brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 24, 2012
The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. A really weird aroma. Quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. Its mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite mild, with light citrus, along with some bready / grainy notes. Flavour of grassy, citrusy hops, with some bready, grainy and earthy tones integrated nicely with just enough malt balance. Fairly standard, unspectacular, though well-crafted IPA.

FatPhil (15362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2016
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Ewww, stinky harsh hop aroma, sweet malts too. Tastes similar, stale over-stewed black tea. Harsh bitter palate, sweet and sticky too. Highly unpleasant beer, nothing right about this at all.

Benzai (15016) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisOs after GBBF Day 1. Clear light orange-golden color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, again a bit old hops, hops, old a bit stale fruityness. Tastes about the same: malts, old hops, a bit stale fruityness, bitter. Decent body, medium carbonation. Decent but fresh it could and should be much better.

bhensonb (14748) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pours light amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Med body. Flavor is light, light caramel with an odd hop flavor - floral and some sort of herbal thing. Maybe also citrus. Not harsh - a bit different, but quite good.
