3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into SA perfect pint showing moderate filtered, caramel brown with a finger of sparse white foam.
The nose shows an interesting aroma of honey and pineapple.
The palate shows low carbonation and medium bodied. Sharp biting IPA bitterness overtakes much of the palate, however a slightly existent malt backbone supports the beer. Good to start but a disappointment if you choose for it finish. But your palate is always the judge.

Can 355ml. Thx Tom Pouce.
Pours golden with huge frothy beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, soap, resin, tropical fruits. Taste is of citrus, pine, bitterness, slight soap, tropical fruits. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Not 100% well balanced. Overall: Quite bitter. Fairly good. A bit too much on caramel for me while, oddly, somewhat harsh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is tart, resin, citrus and tropical fruits like mango. It’s not fresh though. The freshness is killed by aromas of cooked fruits like apple and syrup. The flavor is similar and dominated by the aftertaste after couple of sips. The aftertaste is resinous, cooked fruits. Moderately sweet and bitter finish reminding me of a bay leaf and lemon peel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of honeyed malts and orange. Flavour of grapefruit, sweet malts and menthol. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A bit too sweet for me, but still a tasty IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35,5cl blikje via Firma Bier
Alcoholpercentage van 6,1%
Uitgeschonken in Kaapse Brouwers glas
Uiterlijk: oranjekleurig met redelijke schuimkraag
Aroma en smaak: fruitig als perzik/abrikoos, bloemig, hoppig, bittertje
Conclusie: IPA uit blik, valt me reuze mee wat dat betreft. Is alleen qua aroma niet zo sterk. Smaak wel aangenaam.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Une IPA subtilement parfumé, pas bourrine, des notes de fruit doux et compoté sur une base maltée savoureuse. Originale pour une américaine le tout servis dans des canettes au design magnifique. Great!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy burnt golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing speckled the glass nicely.
The smell had a sweet to bitter citrus rind with a sharp pine rolling in to balance.
The taste was mainly a sweet to bitter blend of citrus and pineyness. A lingering bittersweet pine invades in the aftertaste and leads to a bitter finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation pounded appropriately to provide a nice harshness strutting over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.
