3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber color, on the nose I smell citrus and a mixed fruit scent, taste is bitter hops at the mouth, then caramel at the throat. An OK IPA too much caramel flavor and not bitter enough for me.

Clear amber, strong white head. Wonderful fruity American hop blast on the nose. Medium bodied, balanced bitter sweet with roasty notes. Finishes bitter, some sour notes, caramely and overall great. This one is a keeper.

355cc bottle. Amber transparent with quickly fading white-off head. Very hoppy. Citrus and grapefruit. Very bitter at first but after a few sips a very pleasant maltyness comes forward. Very nice ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from de Albert Heijn in Holland. The beer is amber colored a pours a sticky broken white colored foam, with livingly CO2. The aroma is as the label says complex, with clear hop notes, litlle tropical fruits, like mango. Also bitterness of spices and malts. The taste is slightly sweet with moderate spiciness and is a little watery in the end. The finish is very refreshing and a not as bitter as should expect from an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apparently bottled August 1, 2014. Purchased from Wegmans 02/27/2015. So keep in mind, it’s more than 6 months old.
Light orange color. Big head with a good deal of slow carbonation.
Aroma is major chlorine yeast. Hard to figure out if this is "off" or if this is how it’s supposed to be. The aroma is flowery pollen. The yeast is very overpowering.
The flavor is more bready yeast. There is a hop presence, but the yeast is so strong it’s quasi-ringwood.
It might be unfair to judge this beer on what is clearly an old, inferior version, but it is what it is. When I have a better version of this, I will re-rate it. But bear in mind that at 6-months old, it’s not that good.

Pours a clear blone beer with a medium, white head.
Smells hoppy, floral, some pine, some citrus.
After taste is a nice lingering bitter.
Mouttaste is full, a little alcoholic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Copper tan brew with off white head. Aroma of piney resin. Taste is sweet malt and caramel at they very start, modestly hops forward with a piney / spicy finish. More malty than most IPA"s I’ve had recently but I like the balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A classic North American IPA! A nice and not overpronounced peppery hop character with the well known citric taste elements. Subtle caramel notes accompany the hops and form a well balanced total. Easy drinkable, refeshing but far away from the famous hop bombs - which is not negative though.
A classic North American IPA without being a hop hurrican. Good stuff!
