3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, a mostly clear light orange amber colour, some chill haze, with sudsy everlasting white lace, sheets of fine lace. Intense US hoppy aromas and flavours with a strong enough maltbill underneath. Crisp graininess with hint of caramel. I love this Centennial/Amarillo combo: very fruity, grapefruity, black currants, pinecones, high alpha resin. Light-medium body, average carbonation, nice round mouthfeel and just the slightest residual sweetness. Hoppy bitterness and tangy flavour dominate the aftertaste. A very good IPA, I’m glad I bought a six-pack instead of just a single bottle.

Bottiglia da 355ml
Colore oro intenso, tendente all’arancio con schiuma compatta, bianca, poco persistente. Gli aromi di luppolo spiccano al naso, floreali ed agrumati ai quali segue la generosa speziatura del lievito, che cede alla fine a sentori maltati e di caramello. In bocca entra molto, troppo leggera rispetto alle aspettative che offre all’olfatto: le note resinose ed agrumate del luppolo cedono subito ad un leggerissimo dolciastro maltato. Poi, pressoché, il nulla. Il palato si porta dietro(in maniera piuttosto blanda) un-tutto sommato- piacevole amaro. Corpo medio; carbonazione vivace che la rende secca e beverina. Birra che parte molto bene ma che manca di struttura e di equilibrio luppolo-malto

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a sampler at the American Beer Classic. The aroma is a bright, floral citrus blossom with undertones of bread. There’s a light haze to the amber orange beer that’s topped by a soap white head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter and medium sweet, slightly off balanced. It’s waxy with a soft fuzz and a medium body containing notes of bread crust, caramel, and grapefruit rind and finishes crisp with a fresh zip. The aftertaste is lingering, bitter wax with an herb and burnt note.

New beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($2.25): Pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is lemon and hints of caramel malts. Seems to me that the aroma actually degenerates as the beer sits. Taste is lemony. It be very mildly bitter. A hint spicy. Not very exciting, but refreshing enough.

Poured a clear golden/orange. Aroma was nothing but malt bomb. Flavor followed the nose. This was labeled as fresh through June I believe. Is it supposed to be a malt bomb? Drank this thinking it was going to be a crisp and citrusy IPA, but was very disappointed. Light body with a thin texture. Carbonation was fizzy. Little bitter to end. Couldn’t drink it all though.
