3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange pour with a white head. Nose is extremely sweet. Like lemon candies and vanilla. Some floral hops, bread, mild caramel, sugar, and grass. The flavor is just as sweet. Lots of bread, caramel, sugar, and candied lemon. Hints of vanilla, mild grape, grass, and some floral hops. Very minimal bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong grapefruit & citrus aroma on a medium golden pour with a large, soft, slightly off white head. A soft & sweet bitterness that’s full of citrus & flavor makes this highly drinkable and delicious! One of the best IPAs I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite citrusy
with a touch of wheat and some nice fruitiness. There is a little bit
of lemon and a touch of wheatiness. Fresh tasting with a little bit of
light zestiness and some pithy bitterness. There’s a touch of fruit.
Tasty beer - particularly from Abita.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark gold body under a one inch frothy white head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is a little sweet for an IPA, with some caramel, some minimal floral hoppiness, and toastiness. The flavor is rather sweet with some light botanical notes, some minimal hoppiness, lingering caramel and toffee. This could really do with a lot less sweetness. Lighter bodied, yet a little clingy, with soft fizzy carbonation. This one isn’t for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is citrus, fruit and graham crackers/teddy grahams. The flavor is citrus, fruit, malts, a hint of teddy grahams and a mix of hops and slight spice/heat in the finish. A little old, still pretty decent.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
