3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First try from this new island brewery. Nice golden color, light foam on top. The aroma is too subtle for perception. Would love an increase in IBU's for the next batch. Overall, a drinkable and refreshing Portorican IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with the "Bottled on" date printed on the label. Served in a Samuel Adams pint glass.
Appearance: Clear gold in color and it develops a two finger head that sticks around for a while then slowly disappears. It leaves almost no lacing.
Smell: Smells mostly of hops with a little bit of malt in the background. Itís not overly aromatic but the smell is noticeable and pleasant.
Taste: It has a perfectly executed hop flavor thatís not shocking or overwhelming, but very present and enjoyable. Thereís just enough malt sweetness to balance everything out without ruining the distinct hop character of the brew.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, with little carbonation. Itís medium bodied and finishes dry.
Overall: In an island historically dominated by adjunct lagers, where the "craft beer craze" is just starting to take off, this is some of the best local beer you can buy. Itís hard to get a hold of, but the perfectly balanced flavors, along with the subtle aroma make it worth your time to find and enjoy it.
