3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a little darker brown that I was expecting, with a creamy off-white head that left nice lacing. Hop floral aroma was pleasant, as was the taste. Nice citrusy bitterness with enough malts to give it symmetry. I found it fairly smooth and quite drinkable. Not as way over the top as some NW IPA’s, but should appeal to a broader market.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
35.5cl bottle at The Beer Bridge in Bangkok. Poured into a tulip glass. Orange amber colour. Medium white head which quickly dissipates. Aroma of fruits and a small amount of hops. Taste is light in malts and me SF I’m hops but heavy in fruit. Medium tart. Felt this bottle hadn’t travelled well.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Nice deep orange colour with little head. Surprising aroma with the classical hoppy/flowery/fruity nose but also some honey and chestnut. Very nice taste and a beautiful bitterness on the finish. Great IPA!

Pours dark amber, with a smallish head. Smells hoppy and suprisingly fruity. Much like the other beers I’ve had from here has a decent fruity taste. After that the malts and hops set in. I still feel like there is a wood taste as well, but not totally sure. All in all a good beer.
I had from a bottle.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful burnt orange appearance. Aroma is a combination of hops and citrus and is very evident. Strong hop taste but not bitter. Citrus, almost sweet, finish. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
couleur ambre clair, reflets oranges, peu de mousse. Nez assez proche de la Firestone Union Jack, un peu moins expressif, peut-être moins de caramel et plus de pêche, manque de fraîcheur aussi. La bouche est mieux, avec une superbe texture épaisse, aromatique toujours sur la pêche et les fruits exotiques, un peu de résine et de confiture d’orange/abricot. Bonne longueur avec un peu plus d’amertume que la Firestone.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from sampler pack. Aroma is grapefruit and booze. Pours a dark amber with chunky head that clings and glistens. Taste is rich hops and some distinct malt carriage. Lingering malt flavors and bread cling to my palate. Overall, a solid contender.
