4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - This beer has a very floral, almost flowery aroma, with hints of citrus and tropical fruit, as well as some honey and caramel.
Appearance - Pours a clear golden, orangish body, with a frothy beige head. Some lacing and decent head retention. The beer does look like an American IPA, but the appearance is not super impressive.
Taste - Starts out with a pretty solid hop bite, with a little spiciness to it. Fairly sweet, with hints of honey and toffee. I was getting loads of fruit notes (pineapple, apples, mangoes, some citrus). The after-taste has some moderate bitterness and a biscuity undertone to it. Not very bready.
Palate - The mouthfeel is very smooth. Medium-bodied, low in carbonation, and very soft on the palate, with just a little bit of a pepper-like spiciness (which only complements the general feel of it all).
Drinks well, but I wouldn’t call this beer sessionable nor quaffable. At a fairly high ABV, it goes down very easily, but you will start to feel it in your body, nevertheless.

A tropical aroma that also delivers in the taste. Got the spicy crispness of hops all the way through. Wonderful bitter, citrus finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the wharf. Clear gold with a white lacy head. Aroma is some kind of candy smelling spice! Spicy! Whut? Flavour backs it with spicy hops and flowery hops. Some malt, but not overly bitter. Body is a little thin. Finish is warm.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are so many things right with this beer and so many wrong with the way the brewer describes it. Its hazy golden and dense with a white head and looks like a hefe. The lacing is light, white and intricate as is the delicate white head. The aroma is malted wheat and bittering hops. It tastes more.like 75% traditiinal IPA and 15% hefe with 10% bullshit added in to finish it off. While it tastes and rates quite well the description and adulterated brewing methid is rubbish. Next time, make a great beer. Just shio it in a plain glass bottle.

Bottle - Amber/Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous, grassy and spicy hops. Very Fruity; zesty, tangy grapefruit citrus, lime and tropical fruit. Malty; biscuity malts, buttery caramel. Fairly aggressively hopped. Bitter dry citrus hoppy over sweet malts. Liked this a lot. Very drinkable. Nice IPA!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Glowing amber body and stable small head. Smooth orange compote, light spice to that, soft amber malts. Very rounded and quite sweet. Taste is similar, perhaps a bit more of a bite, especially in the aftertaste where the hops are released. Nor sure if this is an older bottle (forgot to check) but it felt a bit dimmed. Well balanced though and generally enjoyable. English in appeal and I like that idea. Very soft carbonation. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cerveza de color anaranjado, pálida, con espuma suave y de burbuja fina que desaparece rápidamente, dejando el encaje en el vaso.
Aroma a frutas tropicales, principalmente piña y algo de especias.
Cuerpo medio y bien gasificada.
En boca de nuevo hacen presencia mango, melocotón y especias, con un poco de malta acaramelada. Ligero amargor y sin presencia del alcohol.
Le falta amargor y sabor para ser una buena american IPA.
