3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a pretty good IPA. Not as pungent on the schnoz or as "punchy" on the hop backend, but I had no complaints. Interesting brewing process, as describe in the descriptor. Iíd like to let the brewer know that itís got a decent hop presence, as it appears he was unaware of how hoppy itíll be. I liked it. Would do business with again. A+++

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite good, dense & fine yellowish head, very stable over finely carbonated deeper orange-amber beer. Bit caramelly, fresh green leaves, resiny hops. Seem to get celeri. Bitter, vegetable, even metallic, but with a caramelly, cake-bottom underbuild. Good balance, anyway. Again something soupy-celeri. Waming up, coriander??? Fresh, even greenmalt retronasal. Medium bodied, quite slick; velvety-creamy MF from the head. Far from bad, but not really great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a thick and lazy bold gold. Tiny little head that retains. Smell is strong hops and citrus blended together, there was definitely a grapefruit or lemon peel scent to this, even a lemon zest kind of smell and taste. Taste is the hop forefront, tiny bit of fruitiness and other tastes. Residual bitter hop taste with small waves of citrus hitting.
