3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has some decent retention and also leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma is tropical fruits and citrus with some mild grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruity and light malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A nicely done IPA that is certainly worthy of a pleasant tasting experience.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 33cl bottle. Pours clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is strong sweet malts, citrus, some sweet tropical fruit, pine. Taste is similar but way less refined, too sweet first and quickly fading into a bitter earthy finish. Medium body, a bit too watery, medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice, average, IPA with lots of flavors and the problem here is to give all the flavors enough space to evolve on the palate.

Fresh hoppy, sweet malty, citrus, candy aroma. Pale clear liquid with a white head. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Too sweet in my opinion. Soft carbonation, medium-full body.

Bottle. Deep golden/light amber body, small head. Aroma has sweet toffee-like caramel and summery floral hops. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the beer has a decent bitterness. Taste has floral hops with light citric zest. Some more light toffee in the finish. A nice and easygoing IPA, not sure about the innovation part.
