3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great IPA. A pint on tap at Mad Dog?s on the Riverwalk in SA. A little pale in color for me, but a nice floral aroma, and a good soapy head that hangs around. Like most IPA’s I’ve tried, this has a definite grapefruit taste. Not nearly as bitter as some other IPA’s, though. I think that reduces the aftertaste, which didn’t stay with me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 355ml bottle with expiry of April 2016. Imported to Australia by Trumer-Australia Pty Ltd. Hazy deep golden pour with a large dense white head that leaves lace rings. Aroma of medium strong hops (pine needles, grapefruit, tangerine) on top of a caramel malt base. Palate is medium bodied and slick with good balance of malt sweetness and resinous dry hop bitterness. A fine session IPA.

It’s very middle of the road IPA, surprised at the high ratings, strong bitterness, crisp, long grassy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a huge head of billowy white foam. The head has a fantastic staying power, only very slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus smell mixed with a moderate showing of some pine. Along with these aromas comes smells of a cracker malt like smell and a little bit of an herbal aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a with a semi-sweet malt flavor, being a mix of a bready and crackery taste combined with a little bit of a caramel flavor. Upfront there is also a bit of a grapefruit hop, which remains throughout the taste. As the taste advances some of the caramel sweetness fades, only to be replaced by some flavors of orange an light fruit and more hop flavors of a pine and earthy nature. In the end, the later hop flavors dominate the hop profile and with the mix of modest sweetness, malt, and hop, one is left with a somewhat drier, and more lightly hopped IPA flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side for a brew of 5.5% with a carbonation level that is on the average to higher side. The average side of the carbonation and body are a good blend for the hop and the lighter malt flavors of the bread and make for a nice easy drinking IPA overall.
Overall – An alright IPA, but a nothing too exceptional overall.

Real side of tongue bitterness. Doesn't have a strong aroma. Has a lingering bitterness which I find unusual but unique.

Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Mild sweet fruity hops, mild apricot notes and sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is sourness, bitterness and dryness. Very unusual IPA flavour. Intriguing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Cloudy burnt gold, huge white head,
N: Big citrus - especially grapefruit, peppercorns, cherry taffy, a bit of onion, biscuit, very grassy and floral.
T: Moderately bitter, lightly sweet.
M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: A mostly bland IPA. The hops aren’t as assertive as the label would like to believe, and this is more tick than an enjoyable drink.
