2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong, spicy, orange-citrus-tangerine hop nose. Clear yellow-gold with white fully-diminishing head. Orange-citrus pine hop flavour and spicy resiny bitterness in a watery broth. On tap at the brewpub with DYCSoccer17, MartinT and Rastacouere.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Piney, prickly Amarillo hops hover in supremacy over peaches and oranges...Very light body could be passed for hop-perfumed water and obviously eases the experience for those who are afraid of boldness...Probably an efficient pint to quench the thirst, but nothing more...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Palest clean yellow. Explosive lemon zest aroma. Interesting hops those amarillos, I don’t think I’ve had a beer with those too often. They come out very spicy, minty, grassy. The beer itself is rather quaffable, but a little smooth ultimately for an IPA. Light body once again I guess a bit more malt would help to enhance its raw hedonistic value. There’s still a faint cookie-ish touch though. Gentle and approachable, quaffable even. Nice medium bitterness seems to lace around the mouth. Definitely not very complex if not uninteresting.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet citrus orange aroma with some floral hints. Smells yummy. TRANSPARENT blonde/straw color reminiscent of BMC. Small white head. Should be darker in color. Citrus orange hoppiness hits you immediately. Buttery sweet, and sticky in the middle. Orange hoppiness persists throughout. One dimensional, but I kind of like this.
