3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Brass Tap-U Square. Pours a clear deep amber with a finger of off-white head that leaves spots of lace. Notes of citrusy and floral hops, caramel and sweet malts, earth, grass, and leaves and spice. Light-medium bodied, with a resinous, sweet, mildly bitter mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. I hate the name. Minus 1 for that. Otherwise, a straightforward Cascade IPA.

Cervesa que per tractar-se d’una IPA té poc aroma, l’amargor es concentra en el gust.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fad, Søernes Ølbar. Ravfarvet og til den sødligt maltede side. Lidt vag aroma. Noter af brød og karamel i munden. Let krydret. Rød grapefrugt. Ikke særlig interessant, ej heller crisp.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Barking Dog Ale House on 31 Oct, 2014. Super hazy gold color with thick head retention in a shaker glass Aroma is floral and citrus hops with some sweet bready malt.
Flavor is a strong malt and toasted grain up front with the citrus rind and floral hints in the finish. Mostly malt forward with the bitterness being very mild. The body is medium with light yeast character. It’s pretty balanced but it doesn’t stand out in an endless river of IPA’s available on the market. Rather forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I decided to open this at the same time with 2 other single hopped dark horse IPA’s. Not much aroma from any of them. They all look pretty close to the same. Dark orange with off white head.
this one was the best balanced of the three.
