3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can from De Bierkoning @ home on this very hot day. Nice to have some very affordable US craftbrew in NL. Amber color, hazy. Off white, rocky & sticky head. Aroma’s: upon opening the can strong resin, which quickly makes way for red fruit & caramel malts. Retronasal there’s caramel, (red) fruit, hoppy acidity and the resin is coming back!. Flavor is moderate sweet and rather bitter. Medium bodied, good carbo. Finishes with a lasting, dry, firm bitterness. The weather called for a more crisp (less sweet) ipa, but still very nice!

Nice astringent biting bitterness. Aroma of resin is there, but not too exciting, quite subtle. Nice bitter beer, good drinker, not too incredible.

Copper colour with light haze and dense head. The aroma is strong with plenty of tropical fruits. By comparison the flavour is a little muted. Caramel, resin, bittersweet.

Hoppy aroma of malts, light caramel, tropical fruits. Flavour is tropical fruits, a little sweetness, with a nicely strong bitter aftertaste. Simply a very good IPA.

Can from pizza port brewing. Tired malty ipa. Lots of body but not too refreshing. Would drink this again.

A: Copper color with a thin white head. Minor lacing.
N: Grapefruit, pine, black peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and biscuit. Earth and leaves.
T: Bitter and spicy. Moderating malt.
M: Dry, medium body. Slight resin,
O: An old school west coast IPA. Definitely on the spicier side of things; reminds me of Deschutes’ offerings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big resin hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich wooded malt hoppy bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A real hop bucket, but that works for me.

Can. Nice deep amber with full off-white head. Leaves big lacing. Caramel at first, with some slight toasted notes and nuts. Then big bitter hops, some grapefruit and flowers, but not really very aromatic more bitterness. Nice fresh light finish with again some flowery notes and slight bubblegum. Medium to full bodied with full carbonation. Very nice stuff.
