2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grassy and slightly floral hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malty, grassy and floral hoppy overtones. Boring especially for a Cali IPA.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma frutadíssimo com presença de algo floral. No olhar, uma linda espuma duradoura, bem carbonatada. Um dourado escuro. O sabor é maltado e levemente lupulado, com aparente amargor. No paladar, algo seco, mas completamente bebível. Saborosa e amarga na medida.

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden amber color with a huge white head. The head has big bubbles entrapped within which rapidly lead to a recession of the head, to leave a moderate level of lacing.
Smell – A citrus hop aroma is the heaviest, but overall it is quite light. Mixed with the citrus are some tastes of caramel and a bit of pine.
Taste – The taste starts out sweeter and maltier with nice citrus and caramel sweetness and maltiness a white bread malty nature. As the taste advances, it bitter more with heavier citrus hop notes as well as a very light pine hop flavor. These flavors take the taste to the end and overall leave a somewhat bitter-sweet citrus hop flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just slightly above medium with the carbonation level bordering on the same (just above average). Both are quite nice of the style and the flavor profile of the brew.
Overall – A easy drinking IPA that is slightly on the sweeter side. Not bad.

Bottle from beer swap Saturday. Thanks, Chris! Pours orange gold with a big white head. Aroma is grassy, citrusy hop. Taste starts of citrus juicy, but quickly devolves into a lingering grassy bitterness.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have earthy and slightly resiny hops, biscuity malt, a splash of caramel, mild orange citrus. Not very big, average ipa.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours two fingers of head on an almost clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma has some apricot, banana and orange. A nice departure from the normal IPA but too faint.
The taste is malt forward, but maintains a mild to moderate bitterness from the middle to end. The finish is a longer bitter.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
Excellent balance and tastes great.
