2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to tulip glass. I think this must have been waaaay past it’s prime, if I ever get a chance to score a fresh one I will re-rate. Pours golden cloudy orangey with a lot foamy white head. Munich malts on the nose, no hop presence whatsoever, this smelled like a run of the mill APA. Taste was more of the same, this has to be long past it’s time of goodness. Bitterness is quite low, the malt presence is pretty much all I’m tasting. Based on all the other characteristics of this beer you can tell its well made, the mouthfeel and carbonation are both very pleasing and again probably quite nice when fresh. This came across the country in a car and was one of the last beers I got after. Better luck next time methinks!

Bottle. Pours a glowing golden color with about a finger of sudsy white head. The nose is hoppy, mostly floral and grassy. Some hints of the maltiness. Lots of floral bitterness in the taste, lingering finish. Not sure if I’m a fan of the malt choice... seems to accentuate the bitters rather than sooth. Gets a little soapy at the end.

Pours golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is musky with some tarte fruit. Taste is biscuit malt, pine, unripened pineapple - bitter kick on the finish. Definitely not fresh (unfortunately) but still drinkable.

Pours from bottle with a thick foam , tropical fruit and hop, and an almost DIPA sherbet aroma. Flavour is well balanced, with quite a bit of malt character.

Burnished golden color out of the bottle with a sticky ivory head. Sweet orange and tropical fruit nose. Thick mouth feel with caramel sweetness and crust bread. Candied grapefruit rind, orange peel, some tropical fruit and a bit of grass in the finish. Pretty sweet beer. Nice hop burbs, though.

Hazy orange beer, not much head. No lacing. Aroma is hoppy, there is grass, berries and some caramel. Honey sweetness. Taste has lots of grassy hops, herbs, some fruits and ending with a bitter hops. Quite full body and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fluffy, just yellowish head over orange-golden beer; Typical exotic fruit nose, but in a syrupy, sweet way, apricot liqueur, maybe a tad oxydized. Bitter, metallic, bitter fruit. In the finish there is a grainy flavour, again seemingly just a tad oxydized. Orange- and apricot liqueurs, rosewater, if bitter. Very slick, well-bodied, good carbonation. Not a very outstanding IIPA, IMO.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of biscuity malt, citrus, orange, fruits, pine resin, tea leaves, mild hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. I usually like my IPA a lot more fruity and less malty, but I gues the tea leaves (which I’m a sucker for) won me over.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque, orange-brown beer with a nice white head.
Smell is white pepper, malty, leather, metallic. Quite crisp. Reminds me of a German ale.
Taste is deliciously balanced hop bitterness, complex and full without being overwhelming. Refreshing.
