4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light-copper, with a good head that doesn’t dissipate completely even after five minutes. Very good looking beer. The aroma is somewhat hoppy but not floral. Mostly sweet caramel and wood notes. Slightly alcoholic on the nose as well, but not distracting. In the mouth, this is a very well balanced beer. Bitterness up front from ample hops, and a good backing of malt. No one taste predominates as opposed many other IPAs. Very drinkable. Funny, this is very good, but I remember being much more impressed with this beer when I first tried it years ago. Very good overall.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
P: Beautiful crystal clear pale straw body with a massive cap of white meringue head. Great retention with intricate lacing stretching along the glass.
S: Loads of tropical fruit. Melons, nectarine, pineapple, slight metal aroma, fresh milled grain, black pepper and pine cones.
T/M: Crisp and clean flavors of tropical fruit, toasted sourdough bread and leaves the palate waxy. Medium body that starts out thin and builds the longer it’s in the mouth. Great bubbly carbonation that hums and doesn’t sting.
O: A solid all around IPA that anyone can enjoy. Huge clean refreshing flavors. This is my kind of summer ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium strong, though balanced aroma with sweet caramel and peach. Clear, bronze-yellow appearance with medium-light white head. Medium taste in all aspects, but in balanced and fresh style. Peach, sweet caramel and citrus with medium hops and medium taste spectrum. Medium aftertaste with some hops and fruits. Light-medium palate with guess...medium carbonation. But, when it all is in good balance, overall this is a good product.

Pint glass at The Yardhouse. Pale yellow with pine resin and citrus aroma. Not too hoppy of a flavor. The 90-minute is more fun, but this is still a very nice, easy drinking IPA.

Bue à la pression. Classique IPA, houblon bien présent. Rien de particulier à rajouter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Much the same as its bigger brother--90 minute--with everything dialed back just a little bit. Pours a hearty amber color with a medium head. Aroma is well balanced between citrus, pine, malt and hops. Taste is smooth and well balanced and the palate dances between hop varieties, some malt and hints of fruits, raisin, pine and sugar.

Otra IPA, esta vez de botella. Color ambar claro, espuma escasa, destaca el aroma a pino, que se aprecia tambien en boca junto al amagor caracteristico.
