Cloudy bright yellow beer, big irregular yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: bit fruity, sourish touch, citrus, some pineapple. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty fruity, bit sweet, some mandarins indeed, alcohol, hoppy, bitter, some banana. Aftertaste: very bitter, bit grassy, fruity, bit yeasty, nice original take on the style!

Cam. Third time of trying this beer and the best, a little time has helped it mature greatly. Very hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry and with decent carbonation. Smooth malts, light creamy sweetness. Mild floral bitterness. Floral tangerine and orange. Light lime - lemon. Soft pine. Soft finish. Nice.

ciocanelu (3000) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 16, 2017
Hazy peach color with frothy white head. Aroma has dank hops, peaches and some grainy malt notes. Taste is also a bit grainy but the hops overwhelm the malty flavors wit dank pine and overripe peach. Light bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite easy drinking for 7% ABV.

zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2017
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Cloudy yellow-straw coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a tart pineapple, pine, peppery hop and herbal flavour followed by a bitter-sweet, smooth fruity finish. Very good.

jamestulloch (4364) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2017
Can from Bottle Baron. Cloudy bronze body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Patchy lacing. Aroma of pithy orange, melon and bread. Flavour of peppery hops, salted melon and tangy lime chutney. Medium body with a powdery mouthfeel. Light fizz. Very enjoyable. I really like this trend for hazy, full flavoured IPAs.
