Tap at new bohemia in bumped pint glass with commonmac. Gold with white head and good lacing. Resin sweet citrus in the nose. Resin taste with off grain bitterness. Strange sweet and sour bite. Lingering taste not ideal. Has some room for improvement.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at New Bohemia in Golden Valley. Commonshawn present. Quality half finger of head on a standard looking IPA. Lacing is strong. Aroma contains plenty of citrus and in particular grapefruit. Some pine too. Taste involves citrus rind with bitterness prevailing. Resiny mouthfeel...slight oily nature. Hops run throughout and serve as the only real star. Leaves a little bit of a grainy taste at the end that I don’t like. It’s an average to above average IPA. Not a lot else to say.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz brown bottle into a Geordie Schooner glass. It poured a nice clear light orange amber colour with weak white foam. Mostly neutral grainbill, very faint Munich caramelly and bready notes, very little residual sweetness, emphasis definitely on the high-alpha American hops (I believe: Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook.) Sharp resiny bitterness and intense aromas and flavours: black currant fruit, lemon peel, cedar chips, honeysuckle nectar, unexpected nutmeg spice in the aftertaste. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, snappy dry finish. Tasty and true-to-style American IPA. No wonder it’s one of the best examples and such a successful flagship IPA brand.

Pours clear blonde. Not much head. Smell is grassy with a fruity undertone. Taste is bitter, grassy, fruity ( more than the aroma) . Slightly malty in the undertone. Ok beer, but not as refreshing as I like an ipa to be
