3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Currently in a hophead phase, and have been looking forward to this for a while. Missed the last batch at my local bottleshop, City Beverage, and was glad to hear they got more in recently.
Pours a light amber color. Nice white head. Aroma is nice, but not all that strong. A big balance. Not too much of a hop bite on my bottle. Maybe the hops have mellowed a bit since the bottling? It’s on the sweet side. Smooth mouthfeel, not much carbonation. Kind of a short finish for a supposed hop bomber. Pine, sweet citrus
A bit disappointed with this one, sadly. Definitely a great beer, but not as stellar as I’d hoped (based on ratings , press, awards, etc.)

My favourite beer stateside, just fantastic. Too Strong, like most US IPAs, but lovely nonetheless.

Pours clear Amber with a good white head. A strong mango and resin aroma. Full-bodied with a powerful, deep bitter finish.

Draft at the Tap House in Pangyo, South Korea. A little sticky and white head lasting quite long. Rich aromas of apricots and grassy grapefruits. Lovely palate and tastes amusing in whole mouth with a medium light body. Complex malt tastes between those two fruits. Suitable carbonation and bitterness run, finish with rich and propulsive hop-flavour. Really outstanding.

Cloudy, orange. Strong, citrus hops. A little pine and a little fruity. Well balanced and flavorful. Light, higher carbonation but not much after taste.

Tropical fruit and a hint of citrus aroma. Chewy toffee and a piney resinous bitterness. Ok, just not as fantastic as I recall. It could be the age of the beer..because it’s tasting like a shitload of other imported ipas... in that toffee, chewy taste.

Aroma lembrando manga. Gosto lembrando manga/maracujá com doce bem pronunciado e resguardando o amargor do estilo

Clear, deep golden, off white pillowy head, good lacings. Aromas of orange zest bit pineapple, spruce and lychee develop. Light tangy, soft and light slick with a medium body. Balanced malt bed with resinous hoppy bitterness taking over, well balanced. Lasting bit drying out finish.

On tap at 50/50 Pasadena. Hazy golden-orange color with big head. Aroma is huge grapefruit, a bit more sweet, tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, tropical, bitter, refreshing, not too sweet. A perfect West Coast IPA!
