2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy copper, low off-white head. Hop resins dissolved in a bit ethanol. Fruity higher alcohols, tropical hop notes, Medium full, light sticky mouthfeel, sparkly pineapple hop finish. The layer of fullest makes it a bit hard to call this a session IPA IMO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly cloudy light amber with a tight white head that laces well.
Must be drunk in a glass , straight from the bottle would disappoint Aromas of passionfruit, lemon, and perhaps dry cut grass. Taste is a little more lighter than the nose might suggest, but still delivers ,tropical fruit at first, followed up by a firmer citrus bitterness. Good use of hops that I think would make a nice session beer , Falls away at the end to a clean finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From stubby. Big almost fruity pine nose. Pours clear amber with decent head. Very hop forward yet approachable. Balance between the three hops is admirable. Iím going to test the sessionable claim with the remainder of the 4-pack...

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours amber with rocky head and a burst of fruity aroma driven by strong carbonation. Strong bitter backbone that lingers on the palate. Definitely sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy honey-amber with a tight white head that laces well. Aromas of passionfruit, lemon, white wine, grapes and cut grass. Taste is a little more subdued than the nose might suggest, but still delivers lots of tropical fruit at first, followed up by a firmer grapefruit zest bitterness. Falls away at the end to a clean finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste. Tasty lighter style IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel
Hazy sort of pale amber body, small white foam.
Moderate intensity nose; biscuity malts, spicy, woody, citrusy, slightly passionfruity hops.
Medium body & carbonation, drops away rather quickly on the finish.
Hop forward on the body - pine, wood, dried leafy herbs, bitter citrus & overly ripe tropical fruits. Bitterness rather high, thereís a touch of biscuity malt but balance is off.
Something seems amiss here - perhaps a bit old? Itís nice, but perhaps not as much as expected.
