3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with 1 finger dissapointing head. Enticing aroma of citrus, grapefruit, spicy hop and a little caramel malt, pine.
West coast dominant flavor with more citrus, orange, pine. Flavor is a little short and becomes watery. Bitterness fills the void. A little spicy, earthy in the finish.
Well accomplished if slightly generic. Fundamentals a little disappointing. Just needs a little refinement and this could be a very good west-coast style IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Des aromatiques timides pour la quantité de sucres générés par les malts. Sapiné, floral et très confortable en bouche.

Bottle, courtesy of Giorgio from Yenn B&B in Leuven (great Real Ales fanatic). Pours a very interesting amber, white consistent foam, clear and intense. Fantastic nose of hoppy notes along with BBQ meat, caramel, malts. Mouth: bitterness all around the palate, bitter aftertaste (constant bitterness). Liquor feel (whiskey?), sharp end and very balanced overall taste. A very specific beer, good use of ingredients.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask in Craft Islington. Amber in colour, looks like a luscious IPA. Well balanced, sure it’s hoppy but there is some sweetish malt in there too. But lots of hops. I wonder what the six are? I got a nice blend of major hop characteristics without any one (pine/citrus/floral/spice etc) being overly dominant. Oily hop texture, oozes round the mouth. Rather nice.
