3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very citric, grassy, fresh hops with a touch of malt in the back. Flavor is quite bitter, hoppy, loads of citric influences and again the malty background. Nice in balance, great drinkability. Long bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

Nice copper coloured body and a small tan head. Slightly hoppy aroma with some sweet tones. Well rounded taste, below average bitterness. Soft mouthfeel, slight carbonation. A bit soft for an IPA but not too bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber. Mostly clear medium copper, foamy off-white head settles and lasts. Aroma of dank earthy hop and c-malt. Rough bitter resinous hoppy taste, caramel malty, dirty and earthy. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. Not so pleasant, yet still drinkable. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not floral at all. Not my kind of IPA. I should have known better when it said "a twist on the American style pale ale".

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to IPA glass
Grapefruit, chlorine, malt, and light tropical fruit. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick, long lasting 2 cm frothy and creamy head that only reduces to 1 cm after about 10 minutes. Taste is primarily hoppy bitterness, with a slight fruitiness but not much else going on. This is bitter just for the sake of being bitter.
