3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fra flaske på Cardinal, sesongstart på Mandag i annen, aug-16: den fjerde fra Ballast Point denne kvelden, i et fint sammensatt program. Klar gylden med flott skum. Grapefrukt er i vinden for tiden, men denne når ikke helt frem i teten, til det er grapefruktpreget for beskjedent. Helhetsinntrykket blir for likt utallige andre, ipa eller apa. God og lettdrikkelig er den, men for 7% blir det litt tamt. Jeg foretrakk Pineapple Sculpin, som vi hadde rett før denne.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden with a white head - Hop aroma with some hints of grapefruit - Malt to support a good hop profile that has some grapefruits and other citus and there is some other fruity tones as well - The hops goes into the finish with some grapefruit and other fruits and ends dry - This was good

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Alla spina. Limpido color aranciato, schiuma fine e soffice. Profumatissima, assale il naso con pompelmo rosa, fiori, caramello e tantissimo luppolo; gusto perfettamente bilanciato tra amaro e fruttato con note maltate, agrumate e resinose. Finale lungo, pulito e persistente. Giù il cappello!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intense grapefruit, really not much else. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Medium bitter. Bittersweet grapefruit continues, bitterness intensifies, sour orange, yet very fruity sweetness remains, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Beautiful IIPA, very dominating grapefruit throughout. Keg at Republic, Minneapolis.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Cloudy light golden with medium and lasting head. Aroma of the beer is more or less typical for a regular IPA but with more dry and zest side to it. It doesn’t smell any fermentation or alcohol ...more like a lemonade with strong tropical fruit and citrus juice. The beer is creamy and soft but quite thin body. Carbonation is delicate. The taste is overall dry and bitter but there is a good juicy malt background. Everything holds together : bitterness is really like a grapefruit peel but doesn’t last. Clean and fruity. A reference.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half growler. Pours mostly clear orange-amber with a thin film of bubbles. Nose of grapefruit, toffee, green herb and resin. Taste is the same mix but with a bigger presence from the grapefruit and resin. Long finish has some minty-wooden hop and toast. Medium body has medium carbonation and a definite dry slant.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear light orange-golden color with foam ring. Insanely intense grapefruit nose with tiny sweetness. The taste is mild with a fine carbonation and fruit notes from citrus orange and most of all insanely intense grapefruit. Perfectly balanced bitterness. Sweet, yet bitter and most of all super pleasant aftertaste. This beer is incredible awesome (if fresh).
