Schwack, Simply delicious for all those who enjoy a real IPA. Hops are pineapple and passion fruit flavoured with a nice tingle in the mouth. Aroma of extremely fresh hops (straight from the freezer bag to the nose). I can’t wait to find a decent clone I think I’ll use Zythos and Falconer’s Flight hops in my attempt. Highly recommend this IPA!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice pale gold with a large, white head. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus dominant, with some hop smell. The citrus and grapefruit continue to dominate the taste and the hops leave just the right amount of bitterness. Nice creamy finish, and goes down easy. A lot of character in this IPA, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.

Beer 02/25 from Double Blind IPA tasting. Caramel colour, and whoa hop potency all around. Bitter overload with pine. Some sweetness hiding in there. Placed 8th

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper body with a decent froth head. Enjoyable Chinook bitterness asserts itself in the nose, accompanied by some foresty, citrusy, and sprucey notes. Sweet and foresty bitterness envelopes the palate. A residual ebbing of ESB sugar. Overall, this one was solid, but just a bit too sweet.

A very solid IPA. Pours dark golden with a thick white head. Nicely balanced, fairly sweet but with an assertive tropical fruit hop character. Picked up in Ames, Iowa in 2016.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold color. This has above average lacing, but not too much head retention. Smells like mango and has a peppery finish to it. It’s a solid beer, but there is a unique characteristic here I can’t pinpoint.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drank w Matt after dinner at Hutong with his uncle. Light amber-brown, off-white fizzy head that starts out foamy but dissipates a bit. Smells
of sweet fermented apple juice, pear, grainy moderately spiced malt. Taste is moderate to heavy resin bitterness, moderate spiced light peppery malt, some apple juice. Body is oily and slick, bitter, smooth malty finish. Decent amount of resin hop accompanied by lots more malt and spice and apple juice than you’d expect from something that calls itself a West Coast style IPA – also suspect the bottle wasn’t the freshest and that may have contributed to the slightly sweet heaviness. Good but would like to try a fresher bottle.
