12oz. can---> tulip. Pours a hazy orange with little head and next to no lace. Aroma is heavy caramel malt and thatís it. Tastes like a caramel apple cider, Thin palate with very little carbonation. This may very well be the worst IPA Iíve ever had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at Chriso Snow Tasting, thanks to Henrik, 20/01/13.
Hazed amber with a thin white head that clears to the edge.
Nose is caramel malt, very thin hop aroma, slightly soured - strange one for an IPA!
Taste improves a little from the nose, caramel malt, not much in the way of hops, fruits.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish.
One of the poorest IPAís Iíve come across, balance is lacking, not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
No canning information.
Appearance: The body is a cloudy dark amber, almost no light goes through which is not how an IPA should look in my opinion. The head is light tan thatís thick with a creamy texture, the retention is average and it leaves foamy lacing down the sides.
Aroma: The aroma is very bland, thereís some citrus notes with just a very light caramel sweetness, but the whole thing is very restrained.
Taste: Like the aroma this is very bland, the intro is watery that leads to a bland indiscernible mid-taste, by the finish the flavor comes out a little with a very light caramel and toasted malts on the finish that finishes slightly dry. No notable hop presence.
Palate: Medium bodied with a slightly oily texture, the carbonation is very light.
Overall: This is priced decently, but even at the price this is too bland to consider.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Thanks tomer. Hazy amber. Aroma of stale hops, a bit of graininess and light fruitiness. Sourish-bitter flavor with some old hops, graininess, fruity hints, some sweetish honey-ish hints and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Seems way past its prime.

At a tasting, thanks David, small stable head, hazy lightish orange colour, aroma of fruit, hay and bread, flavour of melon and straw, honey and some nuts, light bitterness and a strong suprising sourness. Strange for an IPA and not too good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
