3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arôme houblonné. Pas beaucoup d’amertume pour une IPA. Goût légèrement orangé. IPA qui se boit facilement.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can (Lopez smuggled these outta the Sunshine State and back to the City of Big Shoulders... nice one, brother!). Pours a gorgeous orangey-gold hue, big-assed white head with really good retention and lacing. Nose is dank and resinous underpinned by a cakey malt backbone. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly sweet. Massive wallop of tropical fruit (guava, passion fruit, mango), melon, orange peel, white grape juice, Juicy Fruit gum, very little in the way of bitterness. And at an undetectable 7.5% these are potentially dangerous (I could easily drinking 6 of these without batting an eye) Simply fucking awesome IPA. Lopez is the muthafuckin man, yo!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Nose is mostly guava paste, faint citrus in background. Flavor is same plus pungent mango, honey, graininess, some grapefruit in the finish. Exceptionally balanced with some unique tropical hop flavors.

12oz can into a stemmed ommengang glass. Pours a dark shaded orange, light brown highlights. Head is thin, off white, a few cm, nice lacing leaking on the glass. Great aroma of mango, pineapple, phat hops, resin, grass, pine. Taste of a hop slam, orange dominance, piney endeavorings, juicy hops tickle the tounge, funky sweat aroma through grapefruit at times, eh. But then more hops. This is excellent.

Great citrus and grassy hop aroma with sweet malt smell. Moderately clear golden color. Delicious hop forward flavor with lingering fruity aftertaste. Super beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can to ipa glass. Pour is a clear Amber with a big off white head. The aroma is heavily citrus but like the peel or rind. The taste is big citrus, orange, tangerine, tropical. Finish is decently carbonated. Damn fine, and damn drinkable ipa.

Standard c hop nose. Tangerine dominates. Slightly hazy gold with 1 finger head and some retention. Nice lush mouthfeel. Small bubble. Good fresh taste and palate. Lots of ipas out there just like this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 355ml can (Koht, Tallinn)
Peachy and mandarin aroma, but gets more dull and malty later, a pretty flat IPA, no zing. Straw, brief head. Has both sinky and floaty bits, nice. Not. Startchy body, sweet, some citrussy hops, some bitterness. Finish nicely bitter. Later I get vinegar in the aroma, oooh, that’s bad. Body gets starchier later, hops become more acidic and harsh. Unsatisfying IPA. However, it does cover the alcohol well, mostly by throwing harsh acidic fertilised female hops at the problem. Which causes just as many problems. "Canned 09/02" have you guys ever heard of the concept of years? Another crappy IPA. Snore. Oh gawd, I just noticed the commercial description. Why can’t stupidity be more painful for the perpetrator?
