3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This monogamy series always surprises me in that the palate manages to be so full with just the one hops variety. Pours pale and clear. Nice initial head and good lacing. Aroma of light citrus. Taste is pretty much just lighlty bitter with a little sweet malt. Bitterness actually builds and stays with youu for long aftertaste. These hop highlights are nice because I can compare varieties closley. I think Bravo hops are my least favorite of the series so far. On tap at brewpub.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from brewery. Pours pale amber, slightly hazy. Floral aroma thatís also slightly fruity. Complex taste - fruity, spicy, piny, earthy. Bravo seems to be an interesting hop variety. Quite bitter, but with some good sweetness to balance it out. Good body, but maybe a little thin, with good carbonation. A good IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Hazy orange. Slightly foamy white head. Aroma has honey, lilac, pineapple, a light spoiled milk funk. Light and slick. Even balance, a little sweet and astringent in the body. Finish is bordering on intensely bitter. Wouldnít drink it all night, but itís good and unique.
