3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber pour with decent hop aroma. All the grapefruit you could want in the taste. Maybe I shouldn’t have had it after the hop devil, but this one didn’t measure up for an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark gold, pure white fluffy head. Nose is caramel, sweet malts, earthy hops. Solid malt base, not much hop but finishes real bitter and dry. Crisp.

Bue à la pression. Belle couleur ambrée. Arômes floraux et amertume discrète. Belle rondeur en bouche.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Ok, thought I’d had this before but obviously not. Bottle in the lounge at JFK. Clear pale golden colour. Light citrus hop aroma. Drinks very easily (was that really 6.8%? Might fall asleep easily on this flight!) Mostly citrusy hop with a hint of pine, and a decent malt backbone. For an IPA with a human IBU quotient actually quite tasty. Probably the best beer I’ve had ’for free’ in an airport lounge!

This IPA packs a punch. The first thing I notice is the intense amount of alcohol taste. Not a very good job balancing alcohol with flavor, it’s pretty rough and that says a lot because I’m a big fan of baby duty IPA’s. Definitely worthy of drinking again though.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden. Oranges, citrus, floral nose. Taste of pine, citrus, floral and lemon zest. Medium body with a solid malt backbone. Lingering citrus finish. Very enjoyable. Only thing I found strange was the twist cap, LOL.
