3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear amber colored body.
The aroma is pine, mango and pineapple... a bit faint overall though.
The taste starts with a mild pine bitterness moving towards a dull dry grapefruit bitter middle and ending.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
It’s a solid, good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Burnt, glowing orange colour and a fizzy white cap. Aroma is a mixture of subtle hoppy pine and malty sweetness. More hopping is present in the flavour, but there is still a great balance between malt and hops. Carbonation level is great. Just enough to add some bite without covering any flavours. Awesome session brew, but would be better labelled as a Pale Ale instead of an IPA

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed amber IPA with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with piney herbaceous hops, orange pulp, nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet caramel malt with treacle, grassy surranated hops, a tad too much residual sugars but decent.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light golden amber with about 1 finger head that dissipates quickly. Not much in the scent. Some malts, biscuity, and grassy hop notes. Taste is same as nose, nothing too special here. Maybe a little orange peel. Not horrible but not too special at all.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from the mix pack. Ohhhhh so it’s not listed here as an IPA, I was wondering! My friend kept repeating that it tastes like poop until I promised I’d write that here, I thought that was a bit negative though, it’s just not what this market would expect from the advertising. Pours light amber, nose actually does have some hollow citrus flavour, malt seemed clean to me, no flaws, a bit of biscuit, somewhat sticky, sadly... finish was mildly bitter. Cleansed my palate of the Purple Gas at least.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Couleur caramel avec un col beige moyen. L’arôme est de malt et de caramel, mais il ya quelque chose de plus. Il y a une sorte de caramel / malt odeur de moisi fort. Il ya très peu d’amertume ici, pas une IPA, pas vraiment même une pale ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Average brew not as good as i expected. But decent over all. A light gold color. Taste is a light caramel malt with hop bitterness to balance it out. The hop flavour isn’t as good as other ipa s I’ve had. The beer almost has a cheap lager taste to it. Ill reach for a bottle of something else before this one

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a small foamy head with medium retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light dry hoppy notes with a light sweet malt backbone. Taste consists of dry hoppy notes with lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average as well as carbonation. Definitely short on the hops side of things.
