2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Mexico DF. Cloudy wheat color. Study white head. Strange perfume of canned fruit cocktail. Tropical. Mandarin too. Taste lacks structure. Bitter, but why? Needs focus.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at City Tacos in SD. Very malty aroma. Taste is very very malty with a slight bitterness - disappointing IPA. More like a very malty pale ale with little hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber with a good 1" rocky head (after things have settled), mottled stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is challenged, but not overcome, by citrus bittering midway through the palate. Both sides exit together, but as the swallow lingers, malt asserts itself once again. I suppose it is an IPA, albeit not a strong one. Very drinkable, good with food.

Un nez un peu piquant de piment. Un peu houblonné et un bon goût de grain. J'ai apprécié

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Served in a pint glass at Graciela, Taller de Cerveza in Mexico City.
Subdued nose with virtually no hop aroma, could be the glass. Base malt clean with slight bread crust flavor. Bittering hops come through in the mouth and aftertaste. Citrus including grapefruit and lemon peel is refreshing and leaves clean lingering biter note.

Hazy orange body white head some lacing. Pine aroma. Nice quite bitter taste. Not a wussy IPA. Underrated.

Classic hop mix, orange, floral, grassy, with biscuit backup. Juicy taste, fairly bitter, very pleasant mouth feel, not too carbonated. (Bottle at The Beer Box)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appears hazy orange with a good white head. Aromas of orange zest, spruce, herbal grassiness. Flavours similar with fruitiness to the fore - oranges, pineapple, peaches. Excellent bitterness. I used the word ’punchy’ to describe the bitterness of its brother, the Chupacabra and it applies just as well here. Pacific NW hops in typical profile bringing on a warm, lengthy finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy pale amber, small head. Citric nose with some butter. Dryish with above medium body and well rounded firm malt. Distinct grapefruity hops, long bitter finish. Solid IPA from a solid brewery.
