3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $1.99 on Nov. 7, 2012). Caramel amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Good foamy retention on the sides and good on the top as well.
Smelled Cascade or Columbus hops (Iím usually pretty bad at knowing which hops are which). Also got sweet floral noted and a bit of dark fruit. Some caramel late and even some rye or iced tea notes.
Tasted as a toned down version of the smell. Not as much Cascade hops and got more citrus than I thought I would. Still got that sweet dark fruit taste like the smell. Some pale notes as well.
Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Soft (below average) carbonation. Abrupt and slightly bitter finish.
Finished this beer pretty fast, but Iím not sure what that means. Overall it was pretty good but I wasnít completely sold on the feel/palate. A couple of the ratings could have gone either way.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an IPA? Not very hoppy. Malt forward but not hoppy. Toast and light hop. Basic brew. Pass.

Bottiglia 35 cl. Bel colore color ambra, schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di malto e caramello, in bocca malto e subito dopo luppolo, anche nel finale lungo. Corpo leggero, bassa carbonazione. Niente di strabiliante, ma molto gradevole.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Color ambra, ha leggero naso agrumato. Sicuramente la bottiglia provata non era in forma, ma comunque ben lontana dalle migliori Ipa

From a bottle. Pretty much what you would expect, well made IPA with a huge hop punch and resin finish. Good stuff.

Onestamente terribile. Una delle peggiori ipa che abbia mai assaggiato. Totale assenza di luppolo

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter hoppy taste with a hint of mango flavor, medium bitter finish. Quite mediocre as an IPA.
