3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
red gold pour. Aroma cabbage, cat piss, pine. Tastes melons, cat piss, pine, juniper. waterly light palate lets hops take over. seems more bitter than 50ibu since malts are so subdued.
I didn’t like this the first time I tasted it, but in a blind tasting, I liked it a lot. I averaged my scores for this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Både&. A hazy orange colored beer with a small off-white head leaving some curtains. There’s a lovely pine cone and grapefruit aroma, with some generic tropical fruits and malts in the back. The bitterness isn’t overdone in any way, but it’s sure there. Pine cones, resins and grapefruit, some peaches and some malts too. It’s full bodied, quite dry, and nicely carbonated. Lasting hop dominated finish. Wonderful this one, really lovely. 150711

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I get a lot more malt from the nose than I anticipated cut with a little orange. In the mouth there is plenty of dry grapefruit a little sticky caramel and a little onion? It’s good. Not worthy of all the praise I hear it given.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a clear light gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is heavy grapefruit, light pine, floral notes from the hops, light toasted malts, balance to the hops, no esters......taste is light cereal malts, slightly sweet, hints of sulfer, with heavy grapefruit, pine, resin from the hops, finishing with a lingering moderate bitter finish, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, light alcohol, foamy carbonation. This is a typical American IPA, dominated by American hops in both aroma and flavor. The malt back bone is a bit light in complexity, but the dominant hops make for a clean, refreshing beer.
