2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer Bloggers Conference 2012
Golen in color, clear with a thin head. Light hops flavor and aroma. This was not the regular IPA flavor I am looking for. Way too light.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Light orange and citrus peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Lemon, stale barley malt and mild orange peel hops flavor. Okay but definitely below the average IPA. Never really considered 5.5% to be ’light’ alcohol either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light pine and grapefruit aroma. Pours a lightly hazy light amber, with a huge white head that leaves some good lacing behind. Thin malt biscuit flavor, with a nice citrus hop finish and some lingering bitterness. Light mouthfeel, and an easy drinking IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear, golden color. There was a small white head that left some lacing. Lighter nose for an IPA. Pine and some grapefruit notes. The taste is along similar lines. Pine and grapefruit hops dominate, with some biscuit and earthiness. Dry, almost stringent. Just rates an OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
There seems to be a bit of a trend toward lower gravity IPAs and I love it though what differentiates these from a regular American pale ale is beyond me. This one has a crisp, hoppy nose w/ lots of light lemon zest citrus notes. It’s a cloudy pale beer w/ a head of very mixed bubbles. Flavor is light in terms of both sweetness and bitterness but it suits the style well enough. This is borderline thin in texture which is emphasized by its relatively low carbonation. This is a nice beer overall and one I can drink a lot of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is yeast, bread and citrus hops. The flavor is citrus hops, malts, a hint of fruit and a dry finish. Not bad but kind of thin in the flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Style et résumé: IPA de grande buvabilité.
Comment: Portion de canette au Mondial 2012.
Description: Bière dorée avec belle mousse blanche. Le nez est tout en houblon des agrumes et un peu d’herbe. Les houblons sont bien présents en bouche malgré que le liquide soit mince, la texture à la limite aqueuse. Il y a une belle amertume en fin de bouche.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden orange color with a slight amount of head. Faint hop aroma for an IPA. Mostly citrus and grass. Taste is all hops and bitterness. No malt to back it up. Still fairly smooth finish and somewhat refreshing. Certainly not terrible but not a very good IPA to me.
