3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice orange with very little head. Good carbonation. Big citrus aroma, with a nice bready malt balance. Flavors are very balanced and the palate is nice and smooth. There’s a bit of a minty aftertaste that I’m not fond of, or else this beer would rate much higher in the taste and overall categories. Good beer, and different, but not something I’d drink regularly.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] det här skulle vara en riktigt bra IPA. Visst, den är bra, men inte mer. Guldigt gul, hade gärna sett att det var mer tryck i både aroman och smaken. Annars välhumlad med en tydlig beska.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great grapefruit aroma. Light amber color not exceptional appearance. Appearance isn’t everything. Taste is citrusy up front (if you like that grapefruit) and we do..... After that, the pepper back end makes you smile (if you like that) and we do.... Love this IPA. One of the best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma of this beer is a very pleasant mixture of diacetyl (buttery) and floral hops, and the appearance is an amber color with a medium white head with great retention. The taste is quite bitter and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, bitter finish, sticky texture, and an average carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, light gold - unusual colour for an ipa. Nut, malt and pineapple aromas with a large whiff of alcohol. Malt sweetness leads into a very dry, resiny, hop bitterness along with a slight taste of alcohol on the mid palete.
