3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle, A nice golden body which was mostly clear but grew cloudy when the yeast was disturbed on the bottom. A nice aroma of bread and grass hops. Some nice bitter hops balanced it out. A nice hop presence, similar in my opinion to an esb. Flavor was well balanced, good malts slightly sweet but mostly bread/cereal. Nice hop bitterness. A nice crisp finish. Would make a great session beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is grass, citrus, and malt. Pours blonde and fizzy with a very shortlived head. Taste is light with grass notes, citrus, and slight lemon. Very understated and tame. Well made but not very remarkable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Flowery, mango hops on the nose. Clear copper with a thick rich head. A bit resinous and bitter up front with a long bitter finish. Hops are muted and tastes are a bit lost in the bitterness. Coming all the way from Italy this may be better fresh, but the nose is still pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow pour with a crazy gigantic white head. This reminds me of a white beer mixed with a pale ale. It didn’t taste bad at all but I would hardly call it an IPA.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma is full of citrus, a little bit of resin can be smelled too. This beer has very pleasant bitterness and generally is very drinkable due to its lightness. An IPA I’d love to drink everyday.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: deep marmalade orange, with one finger of quickly fading bright white soapy head. Aroma: peach, mango, grapefruit, mineral water, fruitcake. Taste: tropical/herbal bitterness up front, with a caramel graham cracker malt base that tries to balance. Finish: very dry, with notes of stone fruit and slightly resinous hops lingering in a slick palate base. Notes: Perfectly acceptable IPA. In color and aroma in particular it reminded me of Bells Two-Hearted IPA, which is of course a good thing. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
