Very light IPA. Pours a light orange. I was expecting more citrus in this style but still refreshing. Lacing covers the glass on the way down. Piney but faint/watered down.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery-tan with a great, lasting head that left a nice cap of light tan foam and sticky lace.
Aroma is some mild floral hops, a smidge of maltiness, a touch of fruits, a bit lacking on aroma but not bad.
Taste is more lightly floral hops with a fairly pronounced bitterness, like it had a big early bittering charge of something strong like magnum or warrior, and a lighter late addition of flavor and aroma hops.
Body is slightly watery with a lingering bitterness.
Overall I’d say it’s a bit out of balance, needing more late hops additions, but it’s not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber with a tight white head and some lively sparkle. Aromas of lemon, spice, cream and a little pine on the nose. The taste starts off with citrus and apple, before robust hop bitterness comes through in the back palate. Finishes quite clean, with a light grassy aftertaste. A bit unbalanced, but pretty tasty nonetheless.

Bottle from Plonk. Orange/amber, piney hops and caramel malt, very drinkable, not overly bitter, good balance. Quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Subtle hop aroma: some faint pine aroma. Malt taste dominates at first but finishes with a subtle fruity hop profile. Finishes a little sweet for an IPA.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ja, här blev jag förvånad. Syrlig, med svag beska. Något syntetiskt med smaken. Kommer inte köpa igen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent enough of a IPA. Light floral aroma with a thin head and no lacing. I poured it out of a bottle. The taste was mild with notes of citrus, floral, and malt.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Pours a hazy copper with a bubbly white head of foam. Aroma is sweet and somewhat piny. Very slight malt backbone. Sweet and piny again in the taste. Medium mouthfeel.
